With the motto ‘A Circus State of Mind’, MAD Festival not only offers a stage to an emerging generation of artists, but also supports them thanks to residential and creative projects. Young Turks and established values are brought together and encouraged to learn from each other. During the festival, the audience is challenged to discover both the technicality and innovative nature of contemporary circus. Both locally and internationally. And this from the heart of Antwerp. The first edition of the MAD Festival will take place as from January 6th to January 9th 2022 in and around Park Spoor Noord (day program) and at the Dry Docks site (evening program) witk Stormkop as festival hub.
