There are several other locations around the Leuvehaven. The festival opens on the evening of Friday 1 September. On Saturday 2 September and Sunday 3 September, the festival will take place from 11:00 to 17:00 hours. On Saturday evening, several international groups will be performing, including two shanty groups from Poland and a group from Germany: 35 shanty choirs in all.
