13 August, 2017 14:00 - 17:00

Spend six Sundays this summer in and around the Kunsthal enjoying live music & DJs, dance & theatre, food & drinks during the LET’S GO SUNDAY summer festival. This outdoor festival is free of charge.

The last Let’s go Sunday! of the summer is going out with a bang. The personal numbers, remarkable vocal range and his guitar accompany of Jeangu Macrooy are impressive. The Surinamese Jeangu Macrooy is well on the way to becoming one of the big new soul voices in the Netherlands. The public and press loved his thrilling soul show at North Sea Jazz. His energetic and  amazing performances have no difficulty in hushing the entire audience or getting everybody on their feet. Come to the Museumpark on Sunday 13 August and join in the fun and dance!

You don’t need a ticket for this event, so put on your dancing shoes and join in! The Salsability dancers will show how it’s done. And when you’ve had your fill of dancing, make your cultural Sunday complete with a visit to one of the exhibitions in the Kunsthal: ‘Robert Mapplethorpe, a perfectionist’, ‘All you can Art 2’ and ‘Prince LOVE LIVE’.
