Wens Travel knows what it takes to perform at festivals and events. We create our own festivals and events for music ensembles from all over the world. A few examples of or own festivals are the Mozarteum Festival in Salzburg and the Concertgebouw Festival Amsterdam. When participating at one of our events, Wens Travel creates a full program which includes performances, promotion and accommodation.
We can also set up your own European festival or event, consisting of one or multiple days. Please get in touch to share your ideas and wishes.
