Some conversations are just horrible to have, but with any good relationship communication is key. It encourages order and balance and prevents paranoia. So this is us letting you know, that after what was looking to be the only positive note to play in 2020, Surfana Festival 2020 has been cancelled… again. We were all on track to be jamming it out (1.5m apart) in the dunes and social distancing on party waves but due to recent developments surrounding COVID-19, the municipality of Bloemendaal in all their wisdom has officially decreed although we’re going above and beyond to make Surfana Festival Corona proof, we’ll just have too many people coming together at once.
This year has been so taxing on everyone and just when there was a light at the end of the end of the tunnel, it was snuffed out. We’re extremely sorry for giving you all the run around, our hearts are so broken! A huge shout out to the Surfana Festival crew who had already put so much effort into making this an extra special Corona proof event.
This has all come all of a sudden, so we don’t have a plan in place yet as to moving forward. Please stay tuned over the coming days as we get all our ducks in a row and release a more detailed, more official statement.
Stay strong Surfana Fam
… to the 8th edition of Surfana Festival. Once a year Surfana Festival takes place in the Dutch national park or the Kennemer dunes. Surf minded people from all around the world come together to feel a unique blend of music, clinics, food, arts and love.
A weekend with bands from all over the world, surf focused, an array of workshops – films, art, good food and camp vibes are enjoyed in beautiful nature surroundings. What we love most, we’ve put together into a mind blowing experience for all to enjoy. It’s a festival to celebrate our lifestyle but also to inspire more people to choose a life based on happiness.
Each year we do our best to put together the best vibes and surround ourselves with nature, freedom, sports, good music, surprise acts and lots of clinics and workshops. Most importantly: Surfana brings together the most supporting, energetic, loving, sportive and free crowd! Young and old. Everyone is welcome.
There are many aspects of Surfana Festival that make it such a special event, but the music is what brings it all together. All day and for much of the night you’ll be able to hear a selection of artists and bands hand picked from around the globe that resonate with the Surfana vibe.
Bands and artist reckon Surfana is one of the most unique festival to play at! We’ve seen the likes of Sticky Fingers, Ocean Alley and Ziggy Alberts all perform at our humble festival, and with this being our 8th edition, why would it be any different? This year we’re going all out, we want to blow you away, so get pumped! This year we aim to impress.
It’s our philosophy to live a life full of joy– and to share our lifestyle with others. The happiness people experience at Surfana Festival is simply based on a combination of surf and sport activities on the one hand, and a healthy lifestyle around nature on the other. Located near the beach and the beautiful dunes of the National Park Zuid-Kennemerland, here people are able to enjoy the Surfana lifestyle among others who share the same vibe!
The food line-up will consist of several caterers who will provide the festival visitors with food made with a lot of passion and love.
Diversity and sustainability are central, meaning all cutlery will be reusable in an effort to minimize waste to the max and food on offer is more about taste and sustainable food sources.
From the early morning wake ups with a cup of coffee and a breakfast, till late at night gluttony, we’ve got you covered. A food line-up to get your taste buds tingling.
Surfana Festival takes it to the next level when it comes to sustainability. We are aiming to go zero waste and want to power the festival with nothing else but green energy and good vibes. We work with small and big initiatives to make this change happen.
This year, Surfana festival is committed to making the site as accessible as possible for people with disabilities. This is quite a task in itself as the terrain is basically all dunes and pebbles and a lot of the clinics take place on the other-side of one massive sand dune. So at Surfana Festival 2019, there will be paved paths on the festival grounds that are easy to access with, for example, with a wheelchair, and we will set up a number of small half-elevated stages in the middle of the dance floors so that you can party or dance at the same level as the audience.
We will then take our experience from this year and apply what worked and what didn’t to Surfana Festivals to come.
