The Gentse Feesten are all about getting together, unexpected encounters and experiencing wonderful times together. The magic of the Feesten lies in the unpredictability of day and night. Anything can happen and often a lot of things do happen. Every Gentse Feesten visitor has its own memorable 'Fieste' – tale.
This Ghent festival attracts a diverse public, from youngsters who party until dawn on the Vlasmarkt, the culture adept pure sang who meticulously checks the programme, the bon vivant, grandmother who is looking for nostalgia, the romanticist who goes wild at Bal 1900 or the youth looking for crazy animation.
