Once a year, the entire area around Eendrachtsplein is filled by the sounds of live music. Multiple venues and various event programmers team up to bring you a showcase of the best that Rotterdam has to offer.

 

Rotterdam local talent

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.

All of Rotterdam's many musical scenes are represented. Each has its own location and 'host'. These hosts will 'take over' a local bar or venue in the Eendrachtsplein area for the night.

Eendracht Festival is completely free and starts at 14:30. Most of the activities end around 23:00 while some clubs host parties that go on to 5:00 in the morning. For more information, check out the Eendracht Festival facebook page.
