Tamar Brüggemann is the founder and co-director of Wonderfeel (founded in 2015). She started her career working at the Utrecht Early Music Festival between 2001-2013, and subsequently managing the baroque orchestra Holland Baroque for several years. In December 2019, Brüggemann organized the first edition of the performing arts festival What About Now, a long night that focuses on social sustainability by celebrating the here and now.
2022 marks the 8th edition of Wonderfeel as well as the first year of its spin-off festival WinterWonderfeel. ‘Wonderfeel is unique in the world’ and ‘At the Wonderfeel all your stress disappears. Top performances in an idyllic setting, what more can one ask for in times of crisis?’ are but two of the descriptions by Dutch newspapers of this outdoor festival for classical music, located in the woods near Amsterdam.
