Celebrating its 31st birthday this year, Haringrock has long been providing a musical platform for both international artists and local bands. The festival was first organised in 1986, and has been living a rich life those 31 years. What start ed out as an initiative of local musicians has grown into a festival that is renowned in the Netherlands and abroad. After several years being held indoors, Haringrock returned to its original location at the stunning beach of Katwijk in 2013. Alongside promoting Katwijk’s music scene, Haringrock shines a bright light on the town’s fishing culture and entrepreneurial landscape.
