    Dour Festival

    This year, for the 34rd time, the Dour Festival will be back from 17 to 21 July 2024. Renowned for its unique, cutting-edge and alternative programme, Dour is one of the biggest festivals in Europe and a major event for the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.

    But the festival is not only known for its music, but also for its audience and its friendly atmosphere. With 7 stages, all sorts of different areas including Le Square, Le Rockamadour, the green zones and the special beer bar, Dour is so much more than a music event. Most importantly of all, it’s an opportunity to come together, meet new people, have some amazing experiences, and expect the unexpected.

    It’s hard not to come back once you’ve tried it once!
