We're going to the Lokerse Feest to see Alanis Morisette. And you will come to the Gentse Feest, won't you? This is my first one, not like I can really avoid going...even if I wanted to.

@Jen: showing off? me? You bet I am showing off :p. But in all honesty I must point out that I only have added nation-wide known festivals. All towns have their fairs and local stages as well during the summer!

so yes...you should come over :)

@lilacspecs: I've never been to the Lokerse Feesten but I never mis the Gentse Feesten. This year I have already a lot of other things on my agenda though those weekends but I think I should be able to squeeze in the 19th.
yes you won't be able to avoid it...but it's too much fun to avoid it. I really like the atmosphere. There's so much to do: guided walks, expositions, street theatre etc...don't only walk around late at night from stage to stage as that will be very crowded. The true atmosphere is a bit earlier at night.

Hmm ... I am envious.

There is not much culture around here. I swear there are days that I expect to see the good ol banjo and washboard band twanging out on a corner ....
