The NDSM shipyard has been the basis and the throbbing heart of the Over het IJ Festival for years. Together with other users of the NDSM shipyard a Festival City was created.

There are loads of things to be discovered! Ranging from small and intimate performances of new and young talents to theatrical installations and visual arts, up until partaking in workshops and following debates in the in-depth programme De Stad van Morgen – The City of Tomorrow – . In addition to this you can experience the festival with walks and bicycle routes and enjoying drinks, a bite to eat and music at one of the meeting places at Pllek, Noorderlicht, IJ-kantine and Greenpeace.
