The Zwemfest festival takes place at Vera, located in the city centre. This music venue is the place to be for fans to discover up-and-coming bands, and it has been for the last 50 years, hosting concerts by big names like U2, Modest Mouse and the Editors.
This annual music festival hosts emerging artists, with this year the British band Bull, Canshaker Pi from Amsterdam and KIEFF, the indie-rock act from Leiden. The event is co-organised by a collaboration of four study associations: Ibn Batutta (Spatial Sciences), GLV Idun (Biology and LS&T), GHD Ubbo Emmius (History) and VIP (Psychology). Every year these four associations appoint a committee who'll do its very best to make Zwemfest a succes.
