Zo niet, dan toch festival

‘Zo niet, dan toch’ is the first festival that takes place entirely in the virtual world. It makes Augmented Reality (AR) and location-based virtual projects visible. Existing art forms can be presented in a new way by the arrival of this virtual stage; where everything seems possible. A platform that is open to everyone, the ticket is free and is actually already in your pocket: the mobile phone.

This is a one-day festival in Amsterdam North on Saturday 7th September. The festival showcases projects from a wide variety of artists, designers and developers. Part of the project was developed during a “hackathon” on 29th June.

Explore with your mobile phone in your hand a world full of stories around neighborhood quotes, sharks, leprechauns and naked Northerners. Meet architect Van der Pek – virtual, but in real life, go on safari in the Vogelbuurt and finish the evening with a virtual concert and Silent Disco Mobile in Tolhuistuin.
