The focus of Rotterdam Pride is on celebrating where we have come as a community while also reflecting on the steps that still need to be taken to make Rotterdam a safe space for all. We do this at Rotterdam Pride Festival by celebrating our queer joy and taking up space together. That is why on 3 June at Willemsplein, you can enjoy various music acts, DJs and performances all day and evening, including Cakes Da Killa, Ruth Jacott, Philou Louzolo, Cincity and Vanity Vickers. Check out the timetable below and plan your visit!
