Cactusfestival

For the past 37 years, Bruges has been glowing with anticipation for the national and international musical heroes that Cactusfestival annually hosts. This year's festival will take place from Friday, July 5th until Sunday, July 7th.

 

Check cactusfestival.be for line-up, tickets and all info.

 

In the past years, we hosted internationally reputed artists such as The Afghan Whigs, Air, Tori Amos, Damien RiceErykah Badu, Gnarls Barkley, Beach House, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Calexico, Tracy Chapman, The Cinematic OrchestraElvis Costello, Bryan Ferry, The Flaming Lips, Macy Gray, Gregory PorterJohn Hiatt, Lauryn Hill, Lamb, Mark Lanegan, Daniel Lanois, Jamie Lidell, Massive Attack, Mogwai, Bonnie Raitt, Patti Smith, St Germain, Rufus Wainwright, The Waterboys, Paul Weller, Wilco ... Inspiring concerts side to side with upcoming talent for an audience with a broad taste for music.

 

On this human-scaled festival, in the enchanting Minnewaterpark, all bands bring full-sized concert sets on one single stage. No heart-breaking choices to be made!

 

During the breaks, a fleet of food trucks provides (healthy) food. Playful people will find their heart's desire with off-stage animation for children and adults alike, and a unique decoration of the park. Can't wait for summer? Neither can we!

 

Cactusfestival was awarded 'Best Small European Festival' by Yourope (The European Festival Association), and was proclaimed an exemplary festival regarding environmental efforts by OVAM. These awards encourage us to stay true to our motto 'small is beautiful': and to remain on the same small, green path.

 

Cactusfestival is organised by Cactus Muziekcentrum.
