Description

Pukkelpop is a three-day festival organised by Leopoldsburg’s Humanistische Jongeren (“Young Humanists”), which began in 1985. Pukkelpop started life as a small, local music event before becoming an outdoor alternative festival. Pukkelpop has now become one of Europe’s greatest music events.
The festival is a complete experience, and one which has been promoting community relationships for over 30 years.

Pukkelpop selects a musical line-up with an alternative fringe. Almost 200 current musical sensations, living legends and visionary alternative artists all come to perform on one of our many stages. Pukkelpop opens up a world of possibilities, from hi-octane rock to low-fi singer-songwriters, bright splashes of pure pop to banging house and hot metal. Côté Bizar and Salon Fou usher in street theatre, entertainment and well-being in all senses of the word. Food Wood serves up dishes from around the world, whereas Baraque Futur focuses on sustainability.

Pukkelpop enjoys its traditions, such as Boiler Party night on the eve of the festival. Festival-goers arrive and pitch their tents in one of the nearby camping areas before heading over to get in the party mood at this eclectic warm-up session.
