A summer festival


This summer enjoy six Sundays of live music and DJs, food & drinks and fashion & art at Kunsthal LIVE ON SUNDAY. Come and watch, listen and dance, join in All you can Art and discover your passion for culture during one of the walk-in tours. This outdoor summer festival will be held in the Museumpark from Sunday 1 July to Sunday 5 August from 14:00 to 17:00 hrs and admission is free!

We get off to a swinging start on Sunday 1 July with the Salsa All-Star band Marcando featuring Dutch trumpeter Maite Hontelé. Her swinging sound will get the Museumpark on its feet. She has been living in Colombia for years, where she is regarded as one of the most prominent musicians in the Latin scene. Her electrifying gig with Marcando will get even the most Dutch hips gyrating.

Kunsthal resident DJ Git Hyper is at the turntables between sets. He is well known from The Comedy Factory, Rayman is Late and the Rotterdam rap formation DuvelDuvel. He has also DJed at the North Sea Jazz Festival and was a member of Zuco 103 and Caro Emerald.

A variety of tours

Every Sunday there are fashion tours of the exhibition Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years by fashion buffs, including Fiona Hering and Margreeth Olsthoorn. Or discover nature in the Museumpark with an urban biologist from the Natural Historical Museum. Children and families can have a whale of a time in the Theatre Tour. And the All you can Art artists will be waiting in their mobile workshop to bring out the artist in you.

Picnic basket

Prefer to chill out? Then get down and sprawl on the grass with a Kunsthal LIVE picnic basket or some other tasty snacks and drinks from the food trucks. It’s going to be a fine summer!
