BKS TEN — CULTURE — PIER15 BREDA — FRI 03 MAY 15:00

At Pier15, one of Europe's most renowned skateparks, we’re hosting a BKS Playground Love pre-party together with Kilo Kilo Vintage for BKS TEN! You might remember this match made in heaven from last year’s BKS, where they teamed up for their office-party-extravaganza.

On May 3rds event, during the day, there’s a pop-up vintage market (where you can also screenprint a special BKS TEN seal on your brand new old clothes) and best trick skateboard contest, and local dj’s will provide the finishing touch. In the evening we’re moving indoors for a concert from Rolando Bruno with his mix of cumbia, psychedelic rock and midi-madness, after which we’ll have an afterparty where dj’s will guide us into the night.

The day program (15:00 – 21:30) is freely accessible for everyone. The concert and afterparty (21:30 – 02:00) are sold out, winners have received their tickets.

BKS TEN — FOOD — THE GOAT ROTTERDAM —SAT 20 APR 16:00

Our good friend, chef, entrepreneur, allround creative, ánd former BKS crew caterer, Per de Man is rocking The GOAT, a new burger joint in his hometown Rotterdam. A place where they serve topnotch junk food and state-of-the-art craft beers.

At The GOAT we’re serving a late brunch burger, complimented with a beer of your choice. Our festival director Maurits will give an introductory speech, and Per himself will tell about his experiences as a chef at Best Kept Secret. Vegetarian and vegan options available.

BKS TEN — MUSIC — MUZIEKGIETERIJ MAASTRICHT — SAT 13 APR 16:00

You know Muziekgieterij from their intimate forest stage at Best Kept Secret. They’re also responsible for decorating a big part of Wilder Wanderland!

During our BKS TEN event, Muziekgieterij’s creative director, Wim Smeets, will tell you more about their work at BKS and take you on a tour through their impressively repurposed building. We’ll end up at the rehearsal spaces and will catch Pip Blom – who are playing the venue later that night – playing an intimate session. After the session you are invited for a typical Muziekgieterij buffet where we’ll have dinner together, and course, end the night attending Pip Blom’s full show!
