Baroeg Open Air at Zuiderpark

On Saturday, September 10, 2022, Baroeg Open Air takes place at Zuiderpark in Rotterdam. Once again a diverse programme has been put together, exploring different kinds of alternative and subcultural music. On stage, audiences can hear the grindcore of Napalm Death, the future pop of VNV Nation, the digital hardcore of Atari Teenage Riot, the hard rock of Hardcore Superstar, the death / thrash metal of Rotterdam-based Thanatos, and so much more!

This year, there's a new stage called Stroomstot, meaning "Power Surge." This new mini stage, located near the Electronic Stage, features a cosy and intimate sound system. The music on Stroomstoot can be exciting, confrontational or weird, but it is always full of energy. At this first edition, sparks fly with styles such as analogue rave, Rotterdam drum 'n bass, dark techno and melodic electro.

Puppi's Plee Sessions

There's a part of the festival that was previously known as the Plee Sessions, but in 2022 the sessions have a brand new name. Margarita Medrano Bracamonte de Jong, better known as Puppi de Jong, died suddenly at the beginning of 2022. She was a well-known presence on the Rotterdam music scene and a Baroeg veteran in heart and soul. That's why Baroeg Open Air has named a section of its festival in Puppi's honour: Puppi's Plee Sessions.

A festival and concert venue named after a Dutch philosopher

Both the festival and the concert venue take their name from the Dutch 17th-century philosopher Baruch Spinoza. "Baroeg" is the phonetic spelling in the Dutch language of the philosopher's first name, Baruch, which in Hebrew means "blessed." The connection with Baruch Spinoza is that the gig venue is housed in a building at Spinozapark on Spinozaweg. The open-air festival eventually outgrew Spinozapark, which is why it now takes place at the massive Zuiderpark.
