This summer is filled with great parties, shows and festivals. But the thing we’re personally looking forward to the most, is Dour. We’re going to highlight the festival on this site till day 1 of it, so you get a good taste of the European festival and the artists playing there.

This year will be the 22nd edition of Dour. With an eclectic line-up, the festival in Belgium has something to offer for everyone. Turntablism by Kentaro from Japan, hip hop by Crown City Rockers, Brother Ali and Pete Rock & CL Smooth, drum ‘n bass by the legendary DJ Hype, reggae by Inna de Yard All Stars, dubstep by Benga, Joker and Borgore, chill vibes by Little Dragon and Chinese Man, electronic sounds by Daedelus and that’s only a very small selection of examples – 200 names in total!

Info

For only 93 euro (soon we’ll giveaway a few free tickets!) you can enjoy four days of the festival, starting on July 15th. Above you find a map of Belgium with the location of the festival. More general info can be found here. Keep coming back to this website for more info, highlights of the line-up and a focus on good music. After the festival we’ll post an impression, report and hopefully some interviews of this year’s edition of Dour!
