New Ground Festival

Welcome to the New Ground Festival website for The Netherlands. We are so looking forward to gathering from 5th to 7th June 2020 for a weekend focusing on being ‘Empowered by the Spirit’.

Here, you will be able to find out all the information about the weekend and book your tickets and accommodation for the conference.

We really hope you can join us!

Update: April 2020 

The government has cancelled all events until 1 June 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak. The New Ground Festival would have taken place from 5 to 7 June 2020. It would be irresponsible of us to host an event with 400+ people less than a week after 1 June. Therefore, after many discussions and careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the New Ground Festival 2020. Everyone signed up will receive a refund and we are hoping this will be processed within the next few weeks.


We are excited to announce that on Saturday 10th October, we will be having a New Ground Festival Day at Beloofde Land. Please add this to your agendas to keep the date free. More details will be announced about the once we have more information.


Please see below for frequently asked questions about this decision:

There is nothing you need to do. We will refund the amount to the bank account used to pay for your order. We are currently processing the refunds and so you should receive the money back within the next few weeks. If we have any complications processing your refund, we will contact you directly.

Keep an eye on announcements from your travel company (airline, ferry, train etc.) as to the measures they have in place due to the coronavirus. Many companies are offering refunds or the opportunity to rebook for later dates.

The next New Ground Festival will be taking place in 2022. More details will be announced about this once we have more information.
