Rockin’ the socks off of the Belgians since 1989, Dour Festival has since grown to attract the very best live acts and DJs in the world, all coming together for an almighty five-day party each July. 

Thousands jet in from every corner of the earth to experience the best the alternative scene can deliver, with decent choices of beer along with soothing summer sunshine. 

With awards to its name, and over 200 acts performing across seven arenas, quality and quantity combine as electro, rock, drum n bass, pop, R&B, reggae, house, punk, hardcore, metal, hip-hop, indie and techno all get a look in.

As crowds surf and cymbals smash there is plenty more besides with everything from bucking broncos and bare breasts to wooded areas, football pitches, bespoke bars and plenty of delicious, global grub.
