Exotic times in Belgium, as Snoop Dogg, Lauren Hill and Flume stand out in eclectic line up.
There's nothing dour about this festival. We know we already said that but there aren't many times in life when you can make a play on words out of the word dour. Sourdour bread? See, it's fucking impossible.
Anyhoo, Dour, a small town in French speaking Belgium has been going strong for twenty six years and shows no signs of slowing down. A huge cultural event in the region, Dour promises a whopping line up for nearly 200,000 music lovers. And Belgian beer is just lovely. Music! beer! Festivals! Belgium!
Techno lovers beware: Carl Craig's bringing Motor City to Dour, and it's not to be missed.
Full lineup here.
