As the Management of Twents Gitaafestival we look back to the 12th edition of the festival with some satisfaction. From musical piont of view, as well as organizationally everything went well and fulfilled our expectations.

We hope that the visitors of the concerts on the inside stages and the outdoor stage at the Oude Markt have enjoyed it as much as we did. We would like to thank all the participants in the master classes and workshops for their participation and we hope that they learned something. We would like to thank the combatants of the competition too and we hope that for those who even didn´t win a price it was worth to take the challenge.

It is good to emphasize that this year too, the Twents Guitar Festival could only be organized thanks to grants and sponsorship contributions. We´d like to thank especially the Municipality of Enschede, Vereniging Horeca Stad Enschede, VSB-fonds, Artez Conservatorium, Muziekcentrum Enschede and Kaj’sGuitarstore for their financial contributions. In addition, we look back on a very enjoyable collaboration with a large number of people and institutions.

Finally, we would like to thank all the volunteers who helped us with their specific expertise and commitment, in both preparation and during implementation.

We hope to see you again at the 13th edition of Twents Gitaarfestival!

Kerst Boersma (Chairman)
