The Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival was again held the final weekend of June at Noordplein in the city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Reports from the festival were all positive, including a sold out Saturday show for this 12th edition of this popular event which draws both grassers and music lovers new to the music.

30 acts were on the bill, bluegrass acts from all over the world, and founder and festival director Guido de Groot says that all their planning paid off.

“We fine-tuned the festival this year in all areas – from program to decor and everything in between. This helped us emphasize the open, unique atmosphere we want to create. We try to offer our visitors a magical experience, where they can imagine themselves being swept away into another world. According to the many wonderful reactions and the excellent atmosphere, we achieved exactly that, which is very satisfying.”
