Rotterdam Popweek - 10 days of music events and live shows

The Rotterdam Popweek is all about popular music. It's also the only week that lasts 10 days! That's 10 days to truly experience the vibrancy and versatility of the Rotterdam pop scene through hundreds of diverse performances at over 100 locations.

The Rotterdam Popweek was first set up by the Popunie in 2013 to bring together existing and new pop-related activities and to put them in the spotlight. The 10-day event shows that much Rotterdam has a lot more local talent and activities than people often think. The Popweek is therefore also a good time to encourage new initiatives and bring them to the attention of the general audience.

What to expect at Rotterdam Popweek 2019?

The seventh edition of the Rotterdam Popweek will take place from Friday 1 to Sunday 10 November 2019. This year, there is an added focus on actively stimulating diversity in the line-up by focusing more on partnerships with other parties in Rotterdam's cultural field. This results in many special events that otherwise would not have existed without the Rotterdam Popweek.
