The Ketelhuisplein is one of DDW's largest locations, with approximately 7,000 m2. You'll find a great festival atmosphere at this outdoor location. There is enormous activity, and visitors come and go. The square is centrally located on Strijp-S, between the much-visited Klokgebouw, Microlab Hall and surrounding DDW locations. This makes Ketelhuisplein a great meeting place.

Food & Drinks

You will not only find special projects on and around the square here. There is also a food area with various food trucks and The Bar. The Bar is open all day and starting at 5 pm there are drinks and snacks with DJs so you can end the day on a good note.


The Ketelhuisplein is attractive and dynamic and is based on 'do touch'. Most projects have an interactive character. Touching, interacting and experiencing are central here.

Ketelhuisplein is freely accessible without a DDW ticket.

Exhibiting at Ketelhuisplein

Do you want to exhibit at Ketelhuisplein? Please state your preference in the registration form in the 'Location' section in the comments field. However, this is no guarantee that the spot will be awarded to you. Is your project suitable? The programme team will then contact you. Is your project not suitable for this location? Then you will also receive a message so that you can approach another location.

You do not need to apply for a separate permit for the Ketelhuisplein. This permit runs through DDW. We do need all project information in time for this. For more information, please contact Marloes Philipse. Or call the DDW office: +31 (0)40 296 11 50.
