Event Details

Longplayer is a one thousand year long musical composition. It began playing at midnight on the 31st of December 1999, and will continue to play without repetition until the last moment of 2999, at which point it will complete its cycle and begin again. Conceived and composed by Jem Finer. After the successful introduction of Longplayer at Holland Festival in 2018, it can be heard again this year. Visitors will be able to ascend the Lloyd Hotel tower individually to listen to Jem Finer’s composition whilst taking in a 360 view of the city. In uncertain times, this installation provides a ‘slow’ space for the listener to pause and rethink, while connecting with other listeners throughout the centuries. From June 11th to 21st, every half hour one person is allowed to listen to Longplayer. Reservations are compulsory and can only be made via Holland Festival.
