Cross-linx Festival stops
In 2001, Cross-linx started. Music Centre Enschede and the former Music Centre Vredenburg initiated the festival when the gap between ‘classical’ and ‘non-classical’ music was still huge. Now, after 17 beautiful and extraordinary years, and with initiator and driving force Frank Veenstra recently leaving Cross-linx, we decided that no more editions of the festival will be organised.
