NZZN (North-South-South-North / noord-zuid-zuid-noord) is a 4-day festival initiated by DE PLAYER and Vrooom in collaboration with Pantropical, Sandwich Island, Mima, Dr. Klangendum, Futura Resistenza, Pink Pank, and Koffie & Ambacht; who all operate on the fringes of the Rotterdam subculture.
The festival highlights the network that is flourishing between these platforms; not merely to cement and emphasize the common grounds, but also to celebrate the creative nucleus.
The small-scaled, decentralized events that take place in characteristic and sometimes unusual locations, are particularly beneficial for a lively, diverse cultural climate; just outside the defined city centre borders there is plenty of room for risktaking, experimentation and adventure.
NZZN seeks to map out and showcase this peripheral Rotterdam of leftfield music, sound art, improvisation, and performance art with a vibrant mix of international and local artists.
The festival takes places in various locations in the North and South of Rotterdam.
