On Saturday 19 March 2022, Peel Slowly and See aims to host the twelfth edition of the adventurous Festival of Discoveries in the ‘culture quarter’ of Leiden: the three adjacent venues in the narrow Marksteeg: Gebr. De Nobel, Scheltema Leiden & Marksteeg 10.

Tickets for the event are on sale now!

What started as an initiative of (the community and friends of) record store Velvet Music Leiden, is now coordinated by a collective of local programmers and organizers. This explains the distinctive broad spectrum of genres represented at the annual event. At Peel Slowly and See, the curious music enthusiast explores new horizons; from the latest, buzzing UK-jazz groups, to crackling indietronica, intriguing ethnic music and wayward guitar-bands. Nobody leaves the festival without discovering something out of their regular musical comfort zone, including the performing artists. That’s a promise.

“It’s weird. Looking at this you couldn’t imagine that there was a pandemic going on. It’s as if the last year didn’t happen.”
