Where music connects us.

HeartBeat Festival

Our campus with different cultures and nationalities is the perfect place for meeting new people. During the 7th edition of the HeartBeat Festival, students and staff members will come together to enjoy our festival vibes. On Thursday September 5th we will transform our campus into a festival area with food trucks, lounge areas, bars and most importantly: good music.

This year’s theme ‘Where music connects us’ inspired us to create a diverse line up of DJs and performing artists. With Hermes House Band, Diggy Dex, DJ Biggi, DJ Arsalan & DJ Yelle you’re assured to have an amazing time!


The festival will be kicked off by a spectacular surprise act at 16.30h. There will be a lot to do at the Erasmus Plaza. Visitors can take their picture with Mr. Erasmus or with their friends at our photo booth. For a true festival look you can visit eye painting artists. Daredevils can go for a ride at our mechanical bull or get over their fear of heights in a virtual reality experience.

Food trucks 

A festival wouldn’t be a festival without good food! At different food trucks our visitors can enjoy a variety of different snacks, biological fries and other treats. To create the ultimate festival atmosphere you’ll also be able to choose a variety of international dishes.
