Roadburn presents OFFROAD – a complimentary programme that will take place in Tilburg during the festival. OFFROAD will bring the city – and its inhabitants – closer to Roadburn, and vice versa. A number of venues throughout the city will participate in OFFROAD, offering discounts, performances, activities, special menus and more to visitors. Tilburg residents and visitors from all over will get a taste of what Roadburn is about, whilst Roadburn attendees can explore the city and add a little extra to their usual Roadburn experience if they wish. Roadburn has facilitated OFFROAD in conjunction with the city of Tilburg.


Little Devil


Lovers of heavy music are obviously familiar with Little Devil, the infamous rock cafe of Tilburg, that offers blues rock, metal, stoner, punk and everything in between. As long as it rocks!

Club Smederij


The striking rawness of the Club Smederij building is hard to miss. The place once served as a hangar for train engines. Today, it’s the breeding ground for exciting electronic music-driven nights. In this club, with an almost Berlin underground atmosphere, a horrorcore clubnight comes to life during Roadburn.



Kraakkelder is a place run by locals with crazy ideas, idiotic fascinations and crazy energy. The result? Many striking manifestations, quirky events and – during Roadburn – the heart of the youthful, heavy scene.

Loc Brewery


Discover Tilburg’s newest hotspot: the LocBrewery BrewPub – a brewery and restaurant in one. Here you can enjoy the tastiest specialty beers with an expanded appetizer menu. With twenty-one rotating taps and a wide range of canned beers, there is plenty of choice for every beer drinker.


Cul de Sac


Whether you choose to go wild or relax, Cul de Sac is the place to be. Treat yourself to the most ultra-black metal from Spirit Possession and more gloomy tunes.


The Cat's Cult


This place is known for a wide selection of American beers, the best homemade fast food in town and a vibrant punk-infused vibe that makes it a brilliant place to hang out. Join the Cat’s Cult!


Kafee 't Buitenbeentje


Kafee ‘t buitenbeentje is hosting an exclusive performance by local blackened doom band Ggu:ll, while offering you the tastiest pints for a lowest price. The old familiar beers will be on tap and a wide range of whisk(e)y’s will also be available.



A venue known for its cozy living room and sunny beer garden is Steck. This fine spot located in Tilburg’s wandering district presents post-punk formation Docile Bodies on Friday, April 21, whose love and talent for ambient, shoegaze and metal evoke the spirit of 80s punk all too well.

Food & shops

Focus Foodbar


This 100% plant-based restaurant is becoming a household name in Tilburg and the surrounding area. Mylkshakes, vegan burgers, beers, biodynamic wine, homemade pastries, you name it. Making good food with strong ethics is Focus Foodbar’s main focus. During Roadburn you can make a stop for a tasty vegan Roadburn combo of €25.50: a soup of your choice, a burger & fries of your choice and a drink of your choice.

Xu Noodle Bar


Xu Noodle Bar specializes in freshly-made noodles and homemade broth, inspired by a generations-old family recipe, and Asian street food. During Roadburn, they serve a special Roadburn combo menu, including vegan options.

De Pont


Immerse yourself in Raphaela Vogel’s world at De Pont Museum for Contemporary Art in Tilburg. This young German artist has taken over the entire museum with her hypnotic, seductive and hybrid installations. Sculpture, painting, experimental videos, and music all flow together to yield a theatrical whole.
“Spending time with Vogel”, writes Frieze Magazine, “feels like an invitation to enter a peculiar multidimensional cosmos which requires learning an entirely new visual vocabulary. Intuitive and non-hierarchical, its methods both DIY and digital. Vogel’s language evokes primordial emotions and instant reactions.”

Free admission on presentation of your Roadburn wristband on 20, 21, 22 and 23 April.

Opening hours: 

  • Tuesday through Sunday 11:00-17:00
  • Thursday free admission from 17:00-21:00



Life is too short to lose entire days to the consequences of alcohol. This life lesson is the thought which laid the foundation for Nix&Nix, an alcohol-free liquor store with wines, spirits, and beers. As a special for Roadburn, we have fashioned a tasting which features our heavier drinks, normally it would be €17.50 but for this special occasion €10,-, this can be paid by card in the store. The tasting will be hosted in English. Afterward, there will be a 10% discount for all products for participants of the tasting.

Wednesday 19th of April: 16:00 till 18:00
