The beginning of the Leeuwarden-Fryslân 2018 Capital of Culture year meant the arrival of a new – in tune – piano at the Leeuwarden train station. The instrument offers a musical welcome the many anticipated visitors to the city and, for one lucky busker, a ticket to perform at the Welcome to the Village festival.
According to 3voor12, piano players passing through the station are encouraged to create a one-minute-long film of themselves performing with the instrument and publishing it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #stationspianoLF2018.
The musician whose video garners the most likes will win a slot in the Welcome to the Village festival line up. The experimental pop festival will be held from 19 to 22 July in De Groene Ster park in Leeuwarden.
