On Thursday, July 19th 2018, the entire area around Eendrachtsplein will be filled by the sounds of live music. Eendracht Festival is an event which showcases the best of what Rotterdam has to offer.
The event provides a platform for more than 100 bands, poets, djs and other creative locals. In the last eight editions, the festival has developed into a major showcase where event organizers, bookers, and fans come to discover the cities' best talent.
