Parkstad Limburg Stadium

The marching, show and marching parade contests take place in the Parkstad Limburg Stadium. This stadium, which can accommodate some 20,000 visitors, is home to the Roda JC football club. During the World Music Contest it is the setting for the marching and show contests for four weeks. The stadium is about a 10-minute drive from the center of Kerkrade and is easily accessible by car and public transport.

Roda Hall

The Roda Hall was built especially for the World Music Contest in the sixties as a concert and contest location. The venue, close to the center of Kerkrade, has room for 1,100 visitors and is, besides the theater, one of the two locations of the concert contests and final of the international conductors contest. During the festival there are also concerts in the Roda Hall.

Kerkrade Theater

Kerkrade's completely renovated theatre - opposite the Roda Hall - has state-of-the-art facilities and is one of the two venues of the concert contests during WMC. The percussion contests also take place there. The hall seats over 600 people and is located in the center of Kerkrade, within walking distance of multiple restaurants and cafés. During the festival there are also concerts in the Theater.
