“Le Guess Who? 2014: The best festival the world has seen this year.” - Skyline Reviews (BE)

“As festivals go, Le Guess Who? is uniquely singular and utterly immense in its vision.” - The Quietus (UK)

For international travelers and locals alike, Le Guess Who? offers the opportunity to see high-caliber performers in the most liberal of festival settings: fifteen venues of varying shapes, sizes and purposes. From churches and galleries to pop venues, each plays host to a deftly curated line-up. In 2015, Le Guess Who? Festival will take place November 19-22.

Utrecht, rated #6 on Lonely Planet's list of the 'World's Unsung Places,' is a lively, hospitable place. Built around the centuries-old Dom Tower, the city is branched by many picturesque canals, some with extraordinary wharf cellars that house shops, cafés, restaurants, and bars along the water. Utrecht is one of the Netherlands' oldest cities, with a compact, medieval centre. At the same time, Utrecht's student population of 40,000 makes the city a very vibrant place. As CNN put it, “Utrecht beats the old Amsterdam hands-down”.
