ABOUT ROTTERDAM BEATS

History

Rotterdam Beats is the international business platform and showcase festival for urban bass & beats. Our fifth edition takes place November 14 and 15, 2014.

Rotterdam Beats is an annual initiative in The Netherlands to promote urban bass & beats culture in Europe and to encourage the creation of strong international networks within the urban music industry worldwide. As with likeminded Dutch music festivals Amsterdam Dance Event and Noorderslag Groningen, we aim to become the main European platform and networking festival for our genre.

Rotterdam Beats is a business platform and a showcase-festival. During our business conference we invite guests and speakers from the international music industry for exclusive networking sessions, panel discussions and Q&A’s to share their knowledge and create new connects. During our showcase festival we highlight the newest trends, sounds and talent, from groundbreaking headliners to massive talent on the come-up. Rotterdam Beats hosts a vibrant program for upcoming talent as well, with our Beats Pitches, workshops, master classes, network sessions and many other exciting program details.

“I am very impressed with what I’ve seen here. Nowhere else in the world is there a conference like this.”
Riggs Morales, VP of A&R, Atlantic Records (before: Shady Records, The Source Magazine)

“The real eye-opener in the European festival calendar last year was Rotterdam Beats.”
Joe Muggs – The Guardian

“Rotterdam Beats is on the verge of something big. Each year it’s a step closer to becoming an event every rapper, producer, promoter, or journalist should attend on an international scale.”
Carl Chery – Beats Music / Beats By Dre (before: XXL Magazine)
