Wild Rooster Festival

On 23 and 24 August the Grote Markt will again be one big ‘burning ring of fire’ with the Wild Rooster Festival. Hold on to your Stetson and tighten your spurs and enjoy good food, beer and rockabilly music.

With a great line-up of music and the best barbecue food, your favourite grilling party has become a big-sized festival. Make sure to poke a few extra holes in your belt because this year you will want to feast on juicy burgers, sausages and extra large beef ribs from the smoker, with iced-cold beer, delicious potatoes, corn on the cob and more. This year's festival also features a mud wrestling ring so sign up to strut your stuff.


Live music will be in abundance over 2 days on 2 stages with Americana, rockabilly, bluegrass, uptempo blues and rock'n'roll. The line-up includes loads of bands from the Netherlands as well as abroad, including the United States and United Kingdom.

Grote Markt

The Grote Markt is one of the liveliest spots in The Hague. The atmosphere is always inviting and the crowd is quite creative and off-beat. You will find all kinds of bars and restaurants on the square, ranging from pubs to cocktail bars and from pop music venues to restaurants.
