  • BONUS! Wu-Tang Clan, Zu vs Dälek... @ Dour Festival (Bel) [17-20th July]…

    12 Jun 2008, 09:51 by dourfestival

    Hello,

    The Dour Festival's bill has been confirmed 2 weeks ago and we're getting closer to D Day!

    Tickets sales are going very well, even better than in previous years. We strongly suggest that you don't wait until July to buy yours or you may be disappointed!
    We can already see that last year's records will be beaten in 2008!

    We have some good news for you with quite a few surprises up our sleeves!

    A 20th anniversary bonus!




    The first big surprise is that Wu-Tang Clan are back at Dour this summer for the 20th anniversary!
    The festival-goers will be able to scream Wu-Tang! Wu-Tang! to their heart's content on the Dour fields once more.
    Hip hop collective extraordinaire from the East Coast, will be back with Method Man who could not be with us last year.
    They will be an added bonus on the main stage on Friday along with Ice Cube, to present their new album 8 DIAGRAMS!
    Hip hop and you don't stop !

    Zu vs Dalëk will replace Do Make Say Think


    A special formation for a special occasion! Especially for the 20th Dour Festival Zu will meet Dalëk for what promises to e an explosive encounter. Dalëk's experimental hip hop doesn't know any boundaries, they may sometimes recall Public Enemy, Tricky, ou at the other end of the spectrum My Bloody Valentine.
    It is therefore no surprise to see the artist signed on Mike Patton's Ipecac mythical label.
    After his performance in 2005 that will remain engraved in the memories of happy festival-goers, and also after sharing the Dour stage with The Young Gods in 2007, this time it's with the Romans Zu that Dalëk will be back at Dour this summer.
    Zu are no strangers to Dour either: the Italian warlocks who manipulate sounds as if they were in a lab did come to the Plaine de la Machine a Feu last year with Scorn and Joe Lally [Fugazi].
    You won't want to miss this one!

    We are not done with the good news just yet! We can also reveal that Poulycroc, Steak n°8 and MishMash Soundsystem will also be at Dour this summer!

    And you know what? More surprises will come your way during the festival!

    Only 36 days to go!

    Soon,
    The Dour Team

    20th Dour Festival
  • New names !! DJ Krush, Ratatat, Jimi Tenor, Tim Vanhamel, Casey, Didier Super, The…

    4 Jun 2008, 15:40 by dourfestival

    200 bands, 6 stages, 4 days!

    Only 42 days left before the next Dour Festival in Belgium opens its gates. It will be held from July 17th until the 20th. Like every year, the 3rd weekend of July will see thousands of young music lovers gather on the Plaine de La Machine A Feu, by the coal heaps in the small village of Dour. The festival will welcome 200 bands (that's over 300 hours of live music) over 4 days!
    The Dour Festival offers you the best of compromises: musical diversity, quality, maximum choice but for a tiny weeny price!

    New bands confirmed:

    DJ Krush
    Ratatat
    Chuck Dukowski Sextet
    Flat Earth Society meets Jimi Tenor
    Tim Vanhamel (Millionaire)
    The Germans
    General Mindy
    Casey
    Didier Super et son groupe
    Sierra Sam & Marcus Vector live
    The Heliocentrics

    After last year's amazing performance Otto Von Schirach didn't intend to come back to Dour on his own this time around. He wants to bring his mates along to share the fun: Esperanza (Miami based singer) and DJ Urine (France).

    Unfortunately Do Make Say Think have cancelled their summer European tour and won't therefore be at Dour.

    BUY YOUR TICKET FOR THE FESTIVAL (only 85 Euros for the whole festival if you book in advance)

    Once again we have made the festival site bigger and we've also expended some of the congested roads to make it easier to walk around the site. We have also rethought the whole organisation of the huge camping site situated next to the festival site. This year it will be separated in different zones.
    Despite all this, we do not intend on selling more tickets but we will limit the site's capacity to 36 000 people per day (144 000 on the duration of the festival)the same as last year.

    Don't believe the rumours, we are indeed selling faster than ever but there are still some 4-day tickets left (with or without camping) and you can also buy one-day tickets.



    ATTENTION: We would like to strongly advise you to book your combi tickets now (incl. camping) in order to minimise the queues at the entrance. Last year, after 4:00 pm, you were 23.000 to arrive in the small town of Dour on the 1st day. If you already have you Combi ticket, things will go much smoothly! With your combi ticket you also get access to the shuttle between the train station in St Ghislain and the festival site OR free access to the parking. This should also minimise queues and waiting time.

    OUR DAY TO DAY LIFE DURING THE FESTIVAL

    We do no plan on changing the concept of your Dour but we'd like to make it even better.

    In addition to the new location of the campsite and the new measures taken to improve traffic and files on the grounds of the festival, we are announcing today the creation of two new large areas of relaxation where you can chill quietly.
    Within one of these areas, you will also find an entirely new stand with special beers where you will have the opportunity to peacefully try some Belgian specialties! Drink responsibly!

    For your comfort:

    * we're adding a lot more bins and toilets on the ground
    * we're setting up a new system of waste collection as well ad a new easy sorting system
    * we're setting up a new cleaning team that will be on the site 24h a day

    There'll be more new actions to make your stay at Dour nicer. We'll tell you more soon.



    We're working hard towards making this 20th Dour Festival a resounding success.
