Come root for your favorite artists and party along with them!

Posted by Bowie van Loon , 6 September 2023

Our festival takes place as we speak in Feijenoord in Rotterdam-Southside. Many new murals are being created in the neighborhood, there is a photo exhibition, a special expo in a gas dome in the Mallegatpark and there are artists walking around “wild pasting” their art
throughout the neighborhood. But this year there is a new feature: the hardcup-contest in collaboration with fritz-kola, where through a knock-out system, an artist will emerge as the winner who will decorate next year’s drinking cups. This friday, September 8, that tournament at Roodkapje will take place, and in addition to visitors being able to admire the artists’ drawing skills, there will be music by DJ Quinna. That promises to be a party!

The artist line-up of the contest came about through a so-called open call, for which artists could register. The eight artists who will compete against each other were curated by
by Daniël Claessens, art director of the festival. The field of participants is now out there:

Steef Offerhaus
Stijn Ros
Roebie Heinsen
Reinier Landwehr
Kiara Almeida Duarte
Anastasia Esik
Stephan Bontje

Come root for your favorites between 20:00 and 02:00, or just enjoy the tunes. Tickets are on sale here for €12.50.
