Testing musical boundaries. That’s what the Le Guess Who? festival is all about. For four whole days, over one-hundred-and-fifty artists from around the world will perform in pop concert halls, theatres, churches, former factory buildings and vaulted basements. There’s something for everyone: from (free) jazz, avant-garde, folk, krautrock, psychedelic, drone, ambient and non-western music to every cross-over of these genres imaginable. There’s also a packed fringe programme with exhibitions, films, markets and free concerts in cafés, cinemas, galleries and town squares. Our tip: Le Mini Who?, the free version featuring over fifty up-and-coming Dutch bands. And don’t forget to go to Lombok Festival, organised in Utrecht’s most culturally diverse neighbourhoods, which reflects in the (mainly local) line-up.
