What is STRP Festival?

That's a tricky question, but that might be STRP Festival’s biggest strength. You have to experience it to understand it. In a nutshell, STRP is a festival with exhibitions, lectures, and music at the intersection of design, art, and technology. This year's theme: The Art of Listening. Within this theme, STRP Festival stimulates the conversation on major social issues between visitors and creators. 

What is this year’s STRP Festival all about?

Listening seems so simple. But what does it mean to actually listen to others, your environment, or to yourself? STRP Festival challenges you and the other visitors to rediscover the value of listening. So, ssssht. We're listening here.

What to experience?

With an online program and as many as three different venues, there's lots to experience. The big question is: where do you want to go? We have listed the highlights of the three locations for you. This way, you will save some time digging through the program (you can thank us later). Note: you might like some help with finding the best tickets for your first STRP experience. Read more about this in our practical info guide.


A STRP regular feature are the scenarios. This is where makers and visitors discuss the overall theme, the art of listening. Super exciting and educative! To stay with this year's theme: music is a big thing at STRP every year. The program is packed with live music and experimental performances. Read more about our must-sees here.
