Coolhaven is one of the many smaller harbours in Rotterdam. It was opened in 1922 in order to connect the Delfshavense Schie and the Nieuwe Maas. Nowadays it is a busy transport waterway for sand and gravel ships traveling to and from Delft and the Hague.
The Maydays The Pressure
This is the third video for a series of collaborations with the Popunie entitled Locals Only which features (as the title suggests) bands and artists from our native Rotterdam. The Maydays play a unique mix of blues, indie and rock 'n roll but they rarely perform it this way! After their car broke down they hopped on a rusty old boat right across their rehearsal space in Coolhaven. They played for us the song "The Pressure" from their 2012 album MRK. II.
