Batavierhuis celebrates anniversary with 2 TO 2 FEST

The Batavierhuis is a breeding ground for enterprising artists. On April 2 and 3 the independent makerspace will be the site of the two-day mini-festival 2 TO 2 FEST. Several artists from Rotterdam celebrate the second anniversary of Batavierhuis for almost 24 hours.

The Batavierhuis in Delfshaven is an initiative of the Droom en Daad Foundation (also known for Muziekwerf and concerts at the Heerenhuys). It is especially a house for talent development in Rotterdam. The focus is on music, with room for other art forms. A creative place where musicians, artists, and other music-related entrepreneurs meet curious people from Rotterdam. During 2 TO 2 FEST everyone who is curious can wander through the historic building. They can discover installations, shows, concerts, jam sessions, lectures, workshops, performances and meet the many musicians and music-related artists and professionals.

Since its opening in 2019, the Batavierhuis has employed around eighty Batavians. Each Batavier has its own expertise, which makes it possible to share a lot of knowledge and skills. This contributes to the further development of the individual Batavier. Together they form a collective, in which artistic crossovers can arise spontaneously. There is room for theatre, writing, film, animation, performance, dance, and photography.

Wander around Batavierhuis

“We want to show the public what the Bataviers produce. And celebrate together,” says Ellen van der Windt, Director of the Batavierhuis. “Meeting the makers and the variety of works on offer in the Batavierhuis on Saturday and Sunday make this mini-festival extra special.”

A ticket gives access to wander around the house on Saturday, April 2 from 2 PM to right after midnight. And Sunday, April from 9 AM to 2 PM. Every half hour a new mini-concert will start and there will be continuous performances in the house. From the intimate stage, visitors can experience jazz, world music, folk, techno, electronic music, classical music, and pop while enjoying vegan food and drinks.

A Passe-partout ticket can be bought online for only €5.
