The 38th edition of Zeeheldenfestival will take place from July 4 to July 8 2018. It started as just a few acts playing at the 10th anniversary of ‘De Groene Eland’, now we are a multi-day festival in the Zeeheldenkwartier neighbourhood. We take great pride in that!

For almost five days the Prins Hendrikplein is the place to be for music, street-theatre, children’s activities and general gezelligheid.

It is a perfect opportunity to meet your neigbours, friends and fellow citizens and enjoy a hopefully inspiring and entertaining couple of days with them. And by all means bring your kids!

2018 schedule

The Zeeheldenkwartier is a great neighbourhood to live in and our aim is to bring all its inhabitants together in celebration. Rich or poor, green or blue, gay or straight, vegan or carnivore – we want to stimulate a sense of community.

So head over to the Prins Hendrikplein and have a drink and a bite to eat. Our prices are very affordable. You can even bring your own food and drinks (non-alcoholic). Enjoy the shows and activities. We try to cater to a very, very wide range of tastes. Embrace the atmosphere. It is truly something special.

Oh, this is the only page we translated to English by the way. But it’s not that complicated – we’re the Zeeheldenfestival! It’s all pretty self-explanatory. And there is bound to be someone on the square who will happily translate any pages if needed.

See you on the Prins Hendrikplein!
