Summer Carnival Battle of Drums

Summer Carnival Battle of Drums

July 28 th – 2017

Three Caribbean brassbands, the streets of the city center of Rotterdam, a Golden Drum and more than 50.000 spectators who go completely crazy. That’s what the Battle of Drums is all about! Three young ambitious brassbands each start from different points in the city towards the podium on the Hofplein to get the entire city of Rotterdam hyped up for the Summer Carnival! And that is a journey which involves a spectacular show and a incredible load of energy. The brassbands will cross paths at the Hofplein podium and that’s where the battle starts. Each brassband will give their best to move the crowd and eventually win the Golden Drum. Which brassband is the best of 2017?
