Each year Pukkelpop attracts thousands of vistors from Flanders, Wallonia, Brussels and far beyond to the Kiewit site near Hasselt. Today Pukkelpop has become one of the biggest alternative open-air festivals in Belgium.
Pukkelpop prides itself on its progressive music programme, with its idiosyncratic blend of unforgettable top acts and surprising new talent. Year after year Pukkelpop’s international audience comes to Kiewit Hasselt to listen to a combination of successful contemporary bands, living legends and the most visionary alternative acts from all nooks and crannies of the musical landscape.
Each year in August about 200 acts play on one of the 8 Pukkelpop stages during the three-day festival (from Thursday to Saturday). The campsite is opened on Wednesday, the day before the festival. Local party DJs provide an eclectic warm-up for this three-day feast for music lovers.
Pukkelpop is a unique and encompassing experience during which the music, in combination with the side events, forges an intense bond among the open-minded Pukkelpop audience.
