During the summer, Belgium is host to many festivals. One of the biggest will be held in the village of Dour, close by the French border, on an old coal mine site: La Plaine de La Machine ? Feu. Dour Festival is the biggest musical event in the French speaking side of Belgium. It was sold-out for the first time in 2005 with over 128.000 people over 4 days. The team is always on the look-out for new bands and new sounds Dour Festival, is first and foremost an alternative music festival, independent and with the lowest possible ticket price but it is also based on discovering new music and artists, tolerance and the love of a good party! The festival site gathers 6 stages, each with their own sounds and genres. Music starts to resonate on the site from 11am and doesn't stop until 5am the next morning.
