Me and some other couchsurfers will be in Nijmegen a lot during the summer festivals related to the four-days walk ("Walk of the World"), where people walk 50 km each day for 4 days. Don't worry, you don't have to participate in the walk to enjoy the parties :)
The whole city center consists of festivals and events starting Saturday July 16 up to and including Friday July 22. Virtually all places have free entrance until 0:00.
The program (Dutch only):
Please note in your meeting details which days you expect to be there and what you don't want to miss. We'll set up specific meetings later. You can contact me at 06-17712976. Personally I will be mostly at the Affaire festival (alternative music) and some after parties.
In previous years you could smuggle in your own drinks, but there is no guarantee. There is a supermarket open in the city, except maybe on Sunday.
I have a large apartment where people can sleep on the floor and I have mattresses/sleeping gear for about 8 people, but it's 70-90 minutes walking from the city, or 30-40 minutes by bike (I have 3 bikes that can carry 6 people, in theory). The last bus probably goes around 0:00. Taxi is about 15 Euros.
Let me know if you need a free parking spot on walking distance from the center.
