Artistic and sportive spectacle
Rotterdam Street Culture Weekend is the overall name for the multiple events that are held within street art, hiphop and urban sports. These events are hosted at several locations throughout the city of Rotterdam on Friday 13 thru to Sunday 15 September 2019. They all have one thing in common: world class spectacles spiked with artistic or sportive merits.
Pow! Wow!, NC Skateboarding and more
The first edition of Rotterdam Street Culture Weekend took place in 2018 alongside Pow! Wow! (the number one street art festival in the world) who made their debut in Rotterdam that year. This year Pow! Wow! Will again be playing a major part in the programming of the festival. In addition, several urban sports have been added to the roster. Actual qualification points can be scored by the top competing Dutch skateboarders and 3×3 basketball players for the 2020 Olympics. Both sports are making their Olympic debut in Tokyo next year. The How hiphop took over fashion exhibition which is held in De Kunsthal is among others also a part of the Rotterdam Street Culture Weekend.
Visibility for talent
Rotterdam is packed with talent and initiatives concerning street art, hip hop and urban sports. By hosting the Rotterdam Street Culture Weekend the City of Rotterdam, Rotterdam Festivals and Rotterdam Topsport would like to build on the reputation and encourage the visibility of these talents and facilitate these initiatives.
