BATTLE OF DRUMS
On Friday July 28th, the brassbands Talent for Music, Dreamteam and Rhythm Allstars moved through the center of Rotterdam on their way to the stage at Hofplein. It was once again a thrilling spectacle, a big show and, above all, full of energy.
On the stage, the bands battled it all out. That musical battle was eventually won by Talent for Music. For a year, they may call themselves the Best Brass Band of the Netherlands. Want to know if they are going to prolong the title, or that another brass band will take over? Put July 27, 2018 in your calendar for the next Battle of Drums.
Rotterdam Unlimited presents spectacular acts and artists on the free accessible outdoor stages. Rotterdam has it all! More than 60 acts and top artists from all over the world and young talent of tomorrow will be performing at Rotterdam Unlimited.
