‘Noordstaat Spoken Word Open Mic’

Host Romano presents a program by “‘Noordstaat” spoken word artists Mirries, Alexander Moto, P.J. Kruizinga and Richard. They will perform lyrics in different styles that fit the mindset “stay with the trouble” of Jonge Harten and will address the next day’s elections.

Part of the program is an open mic, which other artists from Noordstaat and the public can sign up for. Sign up for the open mic can be done by emailing Noordstaat at or by signing up on the spot on the day.

The Spoken Word Open Mic is part of the program in partnership with Noordstaat.

Programming in the Festival Heart

We have a new Festival Heart this year, and in the middle of the vibrant heart of cultural Groningen; De Kunstwerf. The place to gather before going to a performance, chill out, talk after, get into The ARENA. During the day a place for meeting, eating, and crew activities and in the evening a place for artists to show their productions on this new stage.

Makers using different disciplines such as spoken word artists, deejays, rappers and visual artists. Where you as an audience do not have to sit but the artists do want your attention. For this programming we collaborate with Noordstaat. Noordstaat is the place in the North where upcoming and starting (hip-hop) artists accelerate and grow in their talent. We love to see and meet you here, be surprised!

Stay with the trouble


Jonge Harten offers a diverse program. But where do you start choosing? To clarify things somewhat, we have three main storylines that we are focusing on this year. You can see these lines throughout our program. So that you can easily choose which line suits you best and what you feel like doing at the moment. What are you going for?





FIELD was created to strengthen the bond with young talent and to give both the artists and the festival the opportunity to support people in the longer term and to make their “dreams” come true. We focus in particular on students who we feel (after conversations and performances) connect themselves as creators with the world beyond. In a conscious, critical and idiosyncratic way.

A program line in which we put creative young people on stage and in which you can participate in great masterclasses yourself. We ensure that you are pampered all day long and of course we close the day with a great party, by none other than Clash!


Textual Theater



Kom je er toch nog niet helemaal uit? Geen nood: stuur een mailtje naar en vraag om nadere toelichting. Vermeld de titel van de voorstelling en waar je graag meer duidelijkheid over wilt hebben (is dit iets om met mijn vriend/vriendin naartoe te gaan? het is misschien wel grappig maar toch niet vulgair? dat soort vragen). De programmeurs van het festival geven je dan persoonlijk het verlossende antwoord!
