On Wednesday 12 June the first barrel of new herring will be awarded to a resident of Rotterdam who has meant a lot to the city. It will be the third time the award will be handed out. It also marks the festive opening of the herring season. Street artist, Eelco van den Berg (I AM EELCO), will paint the barrel during the herring party – organised by the Bilderberg Parkhotel Rotterdam and PR agency MissPublicity. The winner of the valuable barrel will remain unnamed until then. In 2018, the barrel was awarded to dj Jochem Paap (Speedy J).
