The Day of Romantic Music festival in Rotterdam, a classical era experience like no other, has been held for over thirty years now. The 32nd edition of the Day of Romantic Music will take place this year on Sunday, August 19th, 2018.
 
Dag van de Romantische Muziek is an annual classical music festival that celebrates romanticism for one day. The festival features various live music stages, each with its own atmosphere and style.

Besides classical music, there is a 'World of Romantic Music Podium', where romantic music from different corners of the world can be heard; from the Balkans all the way to Brazil.
 
The Day of Romantic Music takes place in Het Park at the Euromast; a breathtaking backdrop for classical music as well as delicious food and drinks.

Come (as romantic) as you are

Ever wish you could go back in time and have a chat with (or dress up like) Jane Eyre or Elizabeth Bennet? For many regular visitors to the Day of Romantic Music, it is tradition to pay a lot of attention to their (sometimes homemade) romantic outfit. It's not a must, but it sure adds to the general vibe!
 

No entrance fee, just a small donation

The organizers of the Day of Romantic Music have kept the festival free of charge for many years. To keep the festival going in the future, visitors are asked to make a donation at the entrance. An amount of two euros or more per person helps the organization cover the costs.

Changes to the festival format

This year, the organization is also carrying out a number of changes, such as a different layout of the festival grounds, so that visitors can fully enjoy the beautiful park. You're also going to find that there are mobile kitchens spread out across the festival terrain, serving a wide variety of delicacies.
 
Another important change is that visitors can no longer bring their own food and drinks to the official festival site. If you've been to the Day of Romantic Music in the past, perhaps you have brought your own food and sat down to eat near the stages. This year, the organization has designated a special picnic area at the entrance of the site, so that this beloved tradition will continue to live on, albeit a ways away from the stages.
