PASSAGE Festival 2020

We never doubted that PASSAGE Festival was going to happen in 2020. However, there is no question that it’s been a very different festival than the one we had intended and planned for up to the early spring of 2020.

Originally, the festival was to host large-scale public performances, designed to attract thousands of people; this was in celebration of the ten year anniversary of the city’s investment in a new arts venue, The Culture Yard, as well as the regeneration of the harbour area into a cultural hub.

We missed that. The noise, the buzz. In its place, however, we realized we had the opportunity to explore new places – areas we’d never been before – together with international artists.
