The Grolsch Summer Sounds kicks off with its rainbow disco, the Bölke Open Air spectacle with drag queens and dancers, making it the unofficial Gay Pride of the Eastern Netherlands. Bölke is the name of one of the most famous clubs in Enschede, so this is a special time of year where the legendary club takes to the streets.

July 25: Rico XL
Rico XL involves alluring salsa dancing to sultry Latin live sounds. Hundreds of salsa-lovers will dominate the special pop-up dance floors on the Oude Markt. Even the inexperienced dancer will find it hard to stand still, what with the swinging beats that will be performed.
August 1: Vrieler NL
After all the dancing and swinging, it's time for Dutch songs. Ballads, up-tempo songs and the Dutch levensliederen and smartlappen will be played by various artists.
