The Festival offers a mix of pop, dance and alternative music, theatre and visual arts. In clubs, theater and even a church in the city centre of Rotterdam the festival showcases new and upcoming movements in different art disciplines, and the crossovers between. Locations are turned into a real motel, where festival visitors spend the night and an artist collective takes care of breakfast. During the daytime young, creative guides lead you to special places within the festival or in Rotterdam for an incredible experience: from rooftopbars to mini concerts at constructionsites.
