One of the big annual summer events is Rotterdam is the North Sea Jazz festival. Over a period of three days, dozens of musicians from all over the planet come here to perform. The event is held in the south in a complex called Ahoy. See the link at the bottom for the exact location.
Not just jazz
You can find lots of different types of music. I'm pretty sure there is something for just about anyone. Although I don't like massiv crowds, this years line-up and programming was just too good and I had to go.
This is Snoop Dogg and his performance was off the chain! He had the joint jumping and the audience loved him! It appeared that he genuinely enjoyed performing at NSJ. The sound was clean and he did it all: some stuff from back in the day like Lodi Dodi, Gin 'n Juice, The Next Episode and some more recent tracks like Beautiful and also some from Cypress Hill and NWA. Very good energy... I hope he'll be back next year.

Well captured moment. The lights and colours are blended well in frame. The shades add more music to your frame.
Wishes for a great week.
See you soon..

Great atmosphere to this image and great lighting. I know its not easy to capture the scene and mood of a music festival, but you've managed it well.
