Schilderstraat, Witte de Withstraat, past the Museumpark to the Nieuwe Binnenweg, and then ending up again at Blaak via the Mauritsweg, the Weena, the Kruiskade, the Karel Doormanstraat and Westblaak.

Battle of Drums
The Battle of Drums will also shake the streets of the center of Rotterdam! On Friday, July 26, three young, ambitious brass bands will depart from different starting points in Rotterdam, towards the stage on Hofplein. A trip full of spectacle, show and especially a huge load of energy. The brass bands meet on the Hofplein and take on the ultimate battle there. This results in the most unique event in the Netherlands, which many look forward to throughout the year.

The three finalists are known: Dreamteam, Ritmo Percussion and SLR will advance to the National Battle of Drums on Friday 26 July 2019 in Rotterdam. This battle of the masters of brass is kicking off with a show of the kids from the brass band school. The Battle of Drums is preceded by the so-called "warm-ups" which this year are moving from the Oude Haven (Witte Huis), the Oude Westen (Tiendplein) and the Mathenesserlaan (Westerpaviljoen) towards the main stage on Hofplein.
