THE warm-up for the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam
Intimate concerts in living rooms. Seemingly coincidental jam sessions in squares. Performances in restaurants and bars and exuberant shows on locations like BIRD and LantarenVenster. North Sea Round Town turns Rotterdam into one big musical spectacle consisting of (mainly) free performances. The city slowly warms up, day-by-day until it ends with the pinnacle: The North Sea Jazz Festival in Ahoy' Rotterdam.
With over 200 events at over 100 locations spread out over the city of Rotterdam, it is important to inform the visitor clearly and explicitly over where and when the events take place. Furthermore, North See Round Town is a festival for young and old, a very broad target group.
With these specifications in mind, we have designed a very easy accessible responsive website, focusing on the programming and locations. Visitors can find the program by date, as a list, but also via ‘geo-location’ on a map. An extensive filter allows users to state their preferences and by doing so what’s on offer is being filtered. To prevent that users lose overview of the many events that are on offer, the overview is adapted constantly during the festival, thus only the events programmed ‘now’ and in the ‘future’ are featured..
Apart from the extensive program there is also room for news articles about the festival and participating acts.
“Nice guys. Know what they are doing. Clear, with a good eye for the goal. They listen, think with you, navigate you in the right direction, convince and inspire and most of all they are really good at designing.”
Mijke Loeven, director North Sea Round Town.
