‘Nacht van de Kaap’ presents music, burlesque shows, good food and nice drinks.

nacht-van-de-kaap

‘Nacht van de Kaap’ presents music, burlesque shows, good food and nice drinks.

September – Saturday 2th

The event ‘Nacht van de Kaap’ brings back memories of the days that ‘De Kaap’ (The Cape) was a place where sailors came ashore to drink in one of many bars and meet up with the ladies of pleasure. Nowadays the Kaap is a clean, safe peninsula situated between the south and north. But in remembrance of those vibrant days once a year, at the end of the summer, De Kaap presents music, burlesque shows, good food and nice drinks. Many of the visitors are dressed up as sailors and prostitutes. A great event where different styles and shows meet on just a few kilometers of land. I myself took out my Very Cherry stockings, high red heels and polkadot skirt for the occasion.


The event ‘Nacht van de Kaap’ brings back memories of the days that ‘De Kaap’ (The Cape) was a place where sailors came ashore to drink in one of many bars and meet up with the ladies of pleasure.


De ‘Nacht van de Kaap’ is heading to Katendrecht on September 3th. During the Wereldhavendagen (World Port Days) the festival provides music, theatre and lots of maritime fun all night long. The festival has won the title: “Best Festival in the Netherlands” (Nationale Evenementenprijs 2015) and is mentioned in the Lonely Planet as tip during the harbour festivities: ‘Festivals-goers done retro get-ups such as sailor outfits for the spin-off de Nacht van de Kaap (night of the Cape), held on one crazy Wereldhavendagen night in Katendrecht, Rotterdam’s former red-light quarter’. To understand what we are talking about, you must experience this festival yourself. It’s the most lively festival of the year
