Festival Description

With a focus on quality and on originality in sound, and not on the entertainment value of a band, the festival reveals cross links between acts, making visible how musicians from all over the world get inspired by one another, how they incorporate different styles and renew them. Affinity and shared inspirations and not land of origin are central to the festival’s line-up. Le Guess Who? highlights new, progressive acts – that are usually scheduled to play on the smaller stages at the big festivals – aiming at an audience of music enthusiasts, people who want to see acts that display an urge to discern themselves. The festival celebrated its inaugural edition in 2007.
