About Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival
It is the biggest bluegrass event in Europe,
Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival gathers over ten thousand visitors every year.
Traditional bluegrass bands from all over Europe, USA, Australia, and New Zealand perform on their stage during these three days.
Other music styles are presented, such as rock’n’roll, country, country-blues, rockabilly, hillbilly, ragtime, jazz, and even some heavy metal and punk.
Activities and Entertainments
Of course, the festival is not just about the music.
There is a wide variety of activities and entertainments, such as workshops, exhibitions, underground comics, and jam sessions.
In 2019, an artisan cobbler from Rotterdam even created a limited-edition shoe, designed specifically for the festival and definitely meant to become one-of-a-kind in someone’s collection.
Food and Drinks
The choice of food and drinks on the market is exquisite: hot dogs, brown fries, chicken stew, vegan stew, meat, and salads are sold from multiple stands and trucks.
The prices are affordable, and the entrance to the Rotterdam Bluegrass festival is free of charge.
