Art meets music, and music meets art at the Tropicana Fest. A great festival in Rotterdam. This festival will be held in a unique and awe-inspiring location: the former Tropicana swimming pool.

12 September: ‘art meets music’ (3 timeslots). Art installations selected by Stichting Pottage, combined with a musical performance from a Rotterdam act and house music of DJ Sifu Wu. Within the given timeslot, you can come and go as you like. Get a drink at the bar while you enjoy the art, music and the Tropicana dome.

13 September: ‘music meets art’ (2 timeslots). Two concerts by the Rotterdam pop artist Guus Bok, before an amazing arty backdrop. These two concerts have a specific starting time. Door open an half hour before. You will be placed based on the amount of people on your reservation. You can get a drink before and after the concert.

The festival is organized in a corona-proof way. And off course you can get a delicious drink at the bar!
