From July 13th to July 19th, 2024, Nijmegen will once again cel­e­brate sev­en days of fes­tiv­i­ties dur­ing the 53rd edi­tion of the Vier­daagse­feesten. Most stages, squares, and parks are annu­al­ly filled by the same orga­niz­er. This orga­niz­er has a four-year con­tract from ACBN Even­e­menten­bu­reau, the orga­ni­za­tion behind Vier­daagse­feesten. These con­tracts cur­rent­ly run until 2025, so most loca­tions are already booked. How­ev­er, last year, Plein 1944 was unex­pect­ed­ly left vacant at the last minute, which is why this loca­tion is now avail­able for a new four-year con­tract. The orga­ni­za­tion that pre­vi­ous­ly filled Plein 1944 is still con­sid­er­ing whether they will sub­mit a plan again.

For years, this square has been a gath­er­ing place for peo­ple of all ages to enjoy excit­ing, inter­ac­tive live per­for­mances. From rock to dance and from the 90s to trib­ute acts, it catered to a diverse range of musi­cal tastes. The search is now on for the con­tin­u­a­tion of this con­cept: a large stage with medi­um-sized pro­gram­ming fea­tur­ing well-known artists. Giv­en the loca­tion’s posi­tion in the city, it is also impor­tant to have day­time activities.

Criteria for the selection process

Until November 15th, entrepreneurs can submit a proposal for the utilization of Plein 1944 to the Vierdaagsefeesten. Subsequently, an assessment will be made to determine if the application aligns with the objectives of the Vierdaagsefeesten (a freely accessible, diverse, and high-quality event) and adds substantive value to the existing offerings. Local parties from Nijmegen are given priority in this process, as are collaborations between parties. Organizations must also be able to meet stringent safety requirements and take into account the possibilities of the locations. Additionally, consideration will be given to the organizer's experience, the substantive quality of the program, and the measures taken to organize as sustainably as possible. Hence, becoming an organizer at the Vierdaagsefeesten is not a straightforward process.
