English | De Nacht van de Kaap Festival


De Nacht van de Kaap is heading to Katendrecht on September 2th. During the Wereldhavendagen (World Port Days) the festival provides music, theatre and lots of maritime fun all night long. The festival has won the title: “Best Festival in the Netherlands” (Nationale Evenementenprijs 2015) and is mentioned in the Lonely Planet as a must-see during the harbour festivities: ‘Festivals-goers done retro get-ups such as sailor outfits for the spin-off de Nacht van de Kaap (night of the Cape), held on one crazy Wereldhavendagen night in Katendrecht, Rotterdam’s former red-light quarter’. (Best in Travel 2016) To understand what we are talking about, you must experience this festival yourself. It’s the most lively festival of the year!
