The 15th edition of the International Shanty Festival, with a main stage at Plein 1940 and 7 additional stages around the Leuvehaven.
Listen to shanties from all over the world, during the Wereld Havendagen (World Harbor Days).
Shanties are work-songs that used to be sung aboard old sailing ships. Choirs from all over the world gather in Rotterdam during the Maritiem Weekend (Maritime Weekend) to let us hear this very specific type of music. Thursday evening is Polish Night, the rest of the events are free of charge. On Saturday and Sunday, approximately 35 national and international choirs can be seen and heard.
