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.
