It presents non-conformist theatre, dance and musical theatre and artistic forms at the festival’s centre stage and at unique locations in and around ‘s-Hertogenbosch. The audience is wide and inquisitive. Boulevard is for novices and fervent fans, for young and old, for an art professional and for a family that wants to go out for the day. Boulevard combines various voices and narratives and wants to be accessible to everyone. Every year, they receive 140,000 visitors from all places, including around 450 international professionals.
