The shortest festival of the Netherlands!

The PAN is Calefax's annual festive concert between Christmas and New Years. Like many festivals, also the PAN of 2020 failed because of Corona. But don't worry, because the PAN-demic will be made up - now that it is possible again. Therefore, on September 4 Calefax will present the musical potpourri evening which has become an outstanding mini festival. In this (postponed) seventeenth edition, one will see short performances by musicians, whose agendas became empty due to the corona crisis: Maria Milstein & Mathieu van Bellen, Thomas Beijer, Peter Gijsbertsen, Wittgenstein Project en Ludian Schaling van het platform samen/uit/thuis, Dolores Leeuwin, Bec Plexus & Aart Strootman. Host Calefax will also perform. A festive evening during which the door to the bar will be open all night long.
