Mascot for the festival by Hans Sweep.
Willem Niehorster has announced plans for the eighth DFGF VIII (Dutch Fretless Guitar Festival) to be held in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, EU.
In his own words….
Today I had a meeting with Emiel Scholsberg. He is a Dutchman that took guitar lessons from Scott McGill. And that’s how he got to know me.
He is very enthusiastic about the DFGF 8! He also brought along the guy that is the importer of Vigier here in NL. This man has a lot of connections in the music business and is also very interested in helping.
The festival will take place on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May 2019.
This time in Amsterdam at the Q-Factory
Q factory also has a hotel and cafe, plus we will be holding workshops on the Saturday morning.
Anyone wishing to attend should contact Willem via the Unfretted Facebook page.
The Q-hotel is only available for booking online. However if your Dutch is not up to scratch the hotel can be booked on booking.com
