The basics

Belgian four day-er that brings rock gods together. Expect camping, burgers and pints of warm but Belgian lager.

The festival

The Belgian version of Reading festival, this super-festival that started way back in 1975, takes over a tiny village for four days and turns it into fields of screaming fans, mud, weird and wonderful costumes and everything else you’d expect with a flood of 85,000 people per day. While music lovers are well served with three stages that rollock through some of the biggest bands of the year, there’s not a huge amount of more ‘fringe’ activities here. That alternative edge that makes British festivals so eclectic doesn’t seem to translate abroad.

This is a mainly camping only affair, although there are a few hotels in nearby town and all food and drink needs to be bought through a voucher system which you can purchase ahead of time to save queueing on site. A nice touch however, is the price of the ticket includes your public transport from anywhere in Belgium to the site (we love those sensible Belgians).


Our tip

Plump for a Camping XL ticket which is slightly more expensive for a space in The Hive, a suped up campsite from the festival organisers.
