POW! WOW! Festival is the best known street art festival in the world. It started in the outskirts of Hawaii, transforming a grey suburb in a beloved open air gallery. After several successful editions on the island, the festival spread to locations in Los Angeles, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan. And now Rotterdam becomes the proud host for its first European edition!
The festival will be held on September 15 and 16 at Keilewerf 1 and 2 and also includes a dunk contest, freerunning tournament and music programming (of which the lineup will be announced at a later date) and is entirely free of admission.
