Ferry Corsten's tips for Rotterdam

Rotterdam-based Ferry Corsten has been at the top of the dance world since the late 90s. Under his own name and aliases such as Gouryella, Moonman, FERR, and System F, he has scored countless hits worldwide. Even today, he is still omnipresent. Together with Joris Voorn, he presented the world's first live stream from Schiphol's control centre to kick off the Amsterdam Dance Event 2023, and he is getting ready to present his seventh studio album Connect.

Ferry Corsten is also part of A State of Trance. Together with Armin van Buuren and Ruben de Ronde, he hosts the globally successful radio show every week. So now that A State of Trance will take place in Ahoy for the first time, Ferry will also perform in his hometown once again. Reason enough to ask him about his tips for Rotterdam .

Witte de Withstraat

''Whether you want to catch up with friends at popular spots like NRC or feast on delicious Korean Fried Chicken at Soju Bar, the Witte de Withstraat remains for me the ideal place to meet up, weekdays or weekends.''

Depot Boijmans van Beuningen

''This has become such a striking asset to our city. Not only does it store museum stuff, but it also hangs cool works of art. And let me tell you, on a sunny day, that roof!''

''Still one of the city's main attractions. On a clear day, you can see The Hague from the top. And it's definitely fun to abseil from, too.''

The Park

''Really cool and unique industrial location known for the many events and parties organised there over the years. It is one of Rotterdam's most iconic locations.
I hope to organise my own event there one day!''
