Music

The thriving music scene in Flanders is home to over 280 festivals every year with a variety of styles from Rock Werchter to the dance beats of Tomorrowland. Jazz aficionados fall in love with Ghent Jazz and Jazz Middelheim, and festivals such as Laus Polyphoniae cherish the early music tradition of polyphonic music. The Festival of Flanders and the annual Queen Elisabeth competition attract young musicians worldwide. Moreover, the international success of rock recording artists dEUS has also paved the way for musical artists like Hooverphonic, Selah Sue and Soulwax.

The Flanders Music Centre works in collaboration with Arts Flanders to provide the most up-to-date information on musicians from Flanders who are performing abroad. The Music Centre provides professional services to help encourage, inform and promote musicians from all genres and backgrounds in order to bring the great variety of music from Flanders to the world stage.
