Crossing Border is an inspiring cultural festival based in The Hague with a unique combination of spoken word, music, special film screenings and visual arts. Over the years Crossing Border has evolved to become one of the foremost international, interdisciplinary literature and music festivals in Europe. Every edition the Crossing Border Festival presents a mix of writers, poets, musicians, filmmakers and performers. Besides renowned names from the literature and music industry, the festival focuses on artists yet to be discovered, highlighting new developments in literature and music and their interconnection with other arts.

The opening concert of this years edition presented a new project by Tom Smith, the singer from Editors, and Andy Burrows, ex-drummer of Razorlight. The two musical friends recently recorded an album together, based on their shared love of the classic Christmas song: Funny Looking Angels. The wonderful concert by Smith & Burrows at the Royal Theatre in The Hague was the kick-off of their tour along a select number of clubs in Europe. The album, with covers and original songs which all bring across the joy of the season and the classic Christmas feeling of togetherness perfectly, is released a week after Crossing Border.

Crossing Border behoort tot eén van de belangrijkste internationale evenementen op het gebied van muziek en literatuur in Europa. Tijdens het spraakmakende festival zoeken schrijvers, dichters, muzikanten, filmers en artiesten steeds weer naar unieke combinaties van gesproken woord, muziek, film en beeldende kunst.

Tijdens de openingsavond van Crossing Border 2011 gaven de zanger van Editors, Tom Smith, en de voormalig drummer van Razorlight, Andy Burrows, een prachtig en sfeervol concert in de Koninklijke Schouwburg. De twee muzikale vrienden hebben onlangs het album Funny Looking Angels opgenomen, het product van hun gedeelde passie voor de kerstmuziek van vroeger. De bijbehorende tour, die een select aantal clubs in Europa aandoet, startte donderdag 17 november op Crossing Border in Den Haag.
