OORtreders Festival is coming in October!

OORtreders Festival (21-23 October) is a 3-day happening for art and sound in and around Het Klankenbos, a unique outside location in the middle of the forests of North Limburg. Visitors and artists both local and from abroad come together with a shared focus on sound and music. A sense of experimentation and adventure is a must here. 

This fourth edition, subtitled ‘Sound in times of fluidity’, reflects on a society where almost everything is in flux and refuses to become consistent. Throughout the program, various themes are explored at the intersection between ecology and society, with sound as the primary medium.

The festival consists of three main parts: a live programme with music and sound performances, an indoor & outdoor expo-route, and a series of screenings, symposia, listening sessions, radio, labs and showcases that are connected to the festival theme.

Tickets will soon be available at 30 euro (combi for the entire festival) en 15 euro (day ticket).
For children and teenagers (-18) the price will be 10 euro (combi) or 5 euro (day ticket).
