24 Hour CultureFestivals / Rotterdam
September 13-14, 5pm
Rotterdam's cultural scene teams up to kick-off the 2014-2015 season with a bang by staying open all night and all day with a slew of previews, exclusives and activities for the true cultuurliefhebbers!
Rotterdam culture: all day, all night
Rotterdam is truly coming into its own, culturally speaking.
Gaining some recognition over the last decade for its cultural scene, the group of institutions have drastically increased their cooperation and are now rivalling Amsterdam in terms of festivals and showcases.
Starting in 2011, the 24 Hour Culture (24 Uur Cultuur- a nice rhyme in Dutch) was an experiment in exposure for the start of the cultural season in the city.
A great success, the event was continued and, along with more institutions, also attracted more visitors- around 15.000 in 2013 to be more precise.
