Over a period of fourteen years Happy New Ears evolved from a festival at the former Limelight arts centre to an independent and internationally renowned festival for new music and sound art. In October 2008 The Wire wrote: «Kortrijk's Happy New Ears festival is establishing a reputation for itself as one of Europe's premier sound art festival». The future is so bright we have to wear shades!
> However, on Sunday 27 September 2009 Hildur Gudnadottir & BJ Nilsen will perform the last Happy New Ears concert ever. From 2010 onwards we embark on a new adventure: Happy New Festival of Flandres Kortrijk. A new festival including classical, contemporary classical and adventurous music as well as sound art. But first: Happy New Ears - The End. Thirteen carefully selected artist taking you on a journey in the wondrous world of new music!

Ziet er erg interessant uit! Jammer dat het tegelijk met todays art (todaysart.nl) in Den Haag is, daar ben ik al jaren trouw bezoeker en was niet van plan dit jaar over te slaan :)

Groeten,

Koen
