The Rotterdam showcase festival Left of the Dial offers the best new bands from all types of alternative music. On October 17, 18 and 19, you can discover around 120 international acts at the start of their career spread across 22 of the most beautiful stages in the center of Rotterdam. Every day, around 5,000 visitors from all over the world will immerse themselves in all types of music genres, from fragile indie pop to metal, from alt-folk to dance punk and everything in between. No matter what you're into, if you like going to concerts, Left of the Dial means a great weekend for you!

Curious which artists will be at the festival this year? Then take a quick look at the website!

Left of the Dial is more than just music. On the website you will find all the Extra Extras that you can experience during the festival, such as:

Bands on a Boat is the ideal way to see Rotterdam at its best. On Friday and Saturday afternoon, Left of the Dial welcomes you aboard Boot3 to take a trip on the Maas. In about an hour you can admire our skyline while drinking as much soda/beer/wine as you want. And more importantly: there are two Left of the Dial bands playing while we sail, it doesn't get any better than that!

During Left of the Dial you can sit in the backstage dining room to eat together with other festival goers and the artists. The fastest and most enjoyable way to get started before heading into the festival.

We want everyone to feel at home in Rotterdam, even if they are only there for a weekend. That's why we offer a shortened integration course to explain how gabber came about, what you get on your plate when you order a hair salon and - most importantly - how to use the word "joh" correctly. Specially intended for our international guests, but also fun for (new) Rotterdammers!

Then we also have the Karaoke Bar (for those who also like to sing), a rock etiquette course (for those who could use a refresher course on how to behave in the pit), special visuals, a treasure hunt, an afterparty , discounts at local stores, the famous Left of the Dial afterparties and much more. And the great thing is: you don't have to do anything, if you just come to watch bands, that's fine too!
