Stukafest Rotterdam 📷 Nikki SmitsStukafest is an annual festival in February, at which artists from all kinds of art disciplines (music, theatre, dance, poetry and small art and lectures) perform in different student rooms in Rotterdam. The artists are almost in your lap, or vice versa, that is exactly what makes Stukafest so special.
Stukafest (Studentenkamer Festival) started in 2001 in Nijmegen. Due to its great success, Stukafest in Nijmegen has grown into a popular and often sold out annual event. Since 2008 the festival is also annually held in Rotterdam. Enjoy performances between beer crates, study books and socks. Various artists perform in thirteen student rooms around West Rotterdam. The room occupants are your hosts and the artists are almost on top of you. It’s a great way to meet new artists, but also new neighbours.
Prior to the festival, you compile your own program. Each artist performs three times, but can sometimes quickly sell out. If one of your chosen gigs is already sold out, you can either go to another round or choose a different performance. There is always plenty of choice and the unknown acts often turn out to be unexpected highlights.
Between the rounds there is always a half-hour break, so you don’t have to go running to the next room like a madman. The rooms are easily accessible by bike or on foot. After the final round, both the audience and artists attend the afterparty.
