Not just a simple festival but a real form of sound experimentation.
In November, for 4 days, Utrecht will be invaded by Le Guess Who, festival now in its 12 edition.
Besides 150 shows on the billboard, with the great protagonist music. It ranges from jazz, folk, ambient, drone, avant-garde, to modern compositions, up to the contemporary pop and rock sounds. And many related events: film, visual art, photography.
Le Guess Who, is an exciting journey towards research and discovery. A wide-ranging event among the most alternative and suggestive places: theaters, galleries and even churches.
An unmissable Festival that, despite its young age, did not take long to carve out the attention of the media.
"The Independent" defined it as a truly eclectic experience. For "The Line Of Best Fit", this is the most diverse, open and inspiring festival. According to "The Quietus", we need events like Le Guess Who? To remind us that a better world is possible.
