About Stukafest Rotterdam 2020
A smashing performance surrounded by crates of beer or study books, an intimate poetry reading underneath a loft bed or a comedian in the kitchen. From music to spoken word, to theatre, performances and more. This is all possible during Stukafest!On February 21st, student rooms in Rotterdam West turn into stages filled with exciting performances. Create your own personal program with your three favourite acts and ride your bike from room to room.

After the line-up, we will have some spaces for open mic for writers and performers in the audience who feel inspired to share their work.
Most forms of literary expression are allowed, such as spoken word, poetry, op-eds, drama, performances, as long as the speakers commit to comply with the 5 minute maximum allocated time per person.
It is important to mention that we encourage freedom of speech and all forms of expression are allowed. However, we want to keep a safe space where both the speakers and the audience feel at home and we feel nurtured and safe. So any forms of hate speech or targeted attacks to a community, group or individual are not allowed.
