The Art Of Drinks is pre-eminently the event to discover new trends. "This year, you can taste remarkably many new rums and tequilas at the festival. It's great to see that these global trends have also landed in the Netherlands." - said Albert van Beeck Calkoen, director of The Art of Drinks.

But also for rediscovering old familiar drinks, the Gashouder is the place to be. "With a remarkable number of single malt whiskies, The Art of Drinks is no less than a whisky festival" continues van Beeck Calkoen. "That this category is still leading you can experience here."

Live music and food trucks

With fine drinks comes good music and good food, of course. The Riverside Trio will provide live jazz in the afternoon and in the evening DJs from De Kopstootbar will throw a little party in the Gashouder. Several food stands can also be found on the festival grounds. Of course, a drinks board with your new favourite wine or grilled chicken with that delicious IPA cannot be missed.
