My name is Gabs and apart from Gabslichthuis, I’m also the coordinator of the Celtic Spirit Tent for the last couple of years.
This is a Spiritual platform on the Festival where visitors can get acquainted with several rituals and customs, but most of all it’s a loving place where visitors can relax and have a rest.

Each year the Celtic Spirit members contribute to a group full of love and inspiration for everyone. This year is nothing different.
Our Theme this year is ‘Connection’

Gabs & her Elves at the Celtic Spirit tent, where you can create your Wish en surround yourself with beautiful Healing sounds in the Healing Element workshop. Love to see you there!

Time: 12.30 & 14.30h

The Pagan Lady

Beltane: The beginning of the summer! We honor the power of the sun and the fertility of Mother Earth.
We celebrate the light, a new life. We celebrate glorious life itself!

Everybody does it! The birds and the bees. Love is in the air, couples find each other.

I am the Pagan Lady, an urban white witch from The Hague. Maybe you know me from being the cook at the Ambachts Ghylde, or doing my Celtic oracle or giving my advice as a herbalist. This Year I will be organizing the passionate ritual of Beltane.

The wild hunt, a parade with the May king and May queen, the dance around the maypole and the jumping over the sacred fire.


We start with the hunt. The men need to gain as much little rings from the women as they can catch. The one men who has the most rings will be crowned as the May king and he will choose his bride. This couple will be symbol for the power of nature and the union of male and female in nature.


With them we will walk in a beautiful parade along the Keltfest field. We invite everyone to join this parade, with flowers in your hair and while singing and laughing and making sounds with drums and little bells. Come and let your children walk along dressed like little elves throwing flowers.


The parade stops at the may pole-field. The ritual begins and the Pole will be placed. Then we grab one of the ribbons and dance around the pole with the merry music of Rapalje to accompany us.


This sparkling energy we take with us to the sacred fire, to jump over it for protection en fertility of all our sincere plans and wishes

Unleash the Wild Women en de Wild Men, Unleash your pagan passion!

Join us in this celebration!

Saturday, 19:00 Celtic Spirit

Orakel theater: Rosa Mare

The first symbolic characters to express thoughts with were called runes. The word rune originated from the gothic word “Runa”, meaning secret.

Each symbolic rune sign is a storage for intuitive knowledge, and it takes insight and experience to read the stones clearly and articulate them to an outsider.
If I am interpreting my stones, I always note how it fascinates people, especially by the pureness of the stones with their signs.

Meet with the old ritual of the rune stones. They provide wisdom and insight.



This year too you can find Rineke at Keltfest, across the Celtic Spirit tent. Here she will be drawing beautiful symbols and loving messages. Are you up for it?

Paul & Roser

We invite you to discover Munay Ki and experience one of the nine rites of the Munay Ki.

Munay means Love, Ki means energy/power.
A loving, creative and profound healing process which allows you to feel and be the person you are within.

Time table: 11.30 & 14.00h.
