This year we celebrate the 15th edition of 10 days off!
10 Days Off is the yearly high mass of club music in Belgium.
Started off as Ten Days of Techno in 1995, the event has now become a gathering of the tribes where virtually every kind of electronic music can be seen and heard. Not only techno, but every sound you could possibly imagine hearing in the international night clubs of today: house, electro, breakbeats, fidget, rock, drum 'n' bass, minimal, broken beats, dubstep, nu-jazz, techno, funk, disco, new-rave, electro-house and other hybrid genres. Adventure and attraction first!
The line-up features both established names and upcoming talent, DJs and producers, locals and internationals, and visitors coming from all over Europe, music lovers and party animals. They all want to sample the unique atmosphere of 10 Days Off, the variety of styles and sounds the event has to offer.
10 Days Off is one of the four official festivals within the "Gentse Feesten", which is the biggest city festival in Europe. The madness of this event draws the attention of millions of people from all over Europe. 10 Days Off can also count on many foreign visitors, including journalists rom several international magazines, from Japan to Brazil, the USA and of course Europe.
Traditionally, 10 Days Off takes place at the stunning Vooruit Arts Centre, in the centre of Ghent. This means: 3 stages and a whole lot of artists - about 100 DJs and live acts, many of which are performing at the festival for the very 1st time!
10 Days Off is a production of vzw 5 voor 12, and would not be possible without the support of our partners Vooruit, S.M.A.K., the City of Ghent, Studio Brussel, Humo, JIM, Nightcode, De Morgen, MCM, La Deux, Pure FM, Poppunt, DJ Sounds.com and Netlog.
The 10 Days Off image campaign has this year been created by
K + F grafic designers.
