A strong wind rages across The Hague's beach, your sunglasses keep the sun out of
your eyes. You scan the horizon looking for the winning catamaran in the battleground.
It is an exciting race; after days of sailing acrobatics, four international 'cats'
battle for the title and try to outwit one another on Scheveningen's waves. This
is sailing at its best, the Delta North Sea Regatta! This regatta is an annual international
top sport event just off the coast of Scheveningen. Every year teams from all wind
directions battle for the title. You can feel the sailors' tension on the beach,
on the boulevard and even in the harbour. Combine the North Sea Regatta with a fun
day out in The Hague: - end your day with a walking dinner in Scheveningen. Eat and
saunter from restaurant to restaurant for a delicious dinner; - or step on the tram
to the city centre for an evening of culture. The town centre is just 10 minutes
away from the beach (by tram); - sleep like a royal in one of the hospitable hotels
and discover The Hague the next day while you are shopping.

Den Haag krijgt een nieuw muziekfestival aan de vooravond van Koninginnedag: het
Life I Live festival. Woensdag 9 maart 2012 werden de plannen voor het nieuwe festival
Het nieuwe festival is kleinschaliger van opzet dan de Haagse Koninginnenach en het
aanbod is diverser. Er komen 7 podia verspreid over de binnenstad met ieder een eigen
muziekgenre en sfeer:
De naam verwijst naar het nummer ‘The Life I Live’ van Q65, de bekende Haagse band
uit de zestiger jaren, en is een knipoog naar de eigenzinnigheid van muzikanten en
van kunstenaars in het bijzonder. ‘Ik vind het heel knap dat jullie dit in zo’n korte
tijd voor elkaar hebben gekregen,’ zei wethouder Marjolein de Jong (Cultuur) bij
de presentatie. ‘Ik hoop dat dit festival een gevarieerder publiek trekt en dat het
een feest wordt van jong tot oud.’
