The Prodigy named for Dour Festival 2016!



The mighty Dour Festival in Belgium returns again for 2016 across 13-17th July.

For years and years everyone involved in Dour – visitors and crew – has dreamt of this day.  The Prodigy, who only last week won the European Festival Award for best headliner, will be turning the Last Arena upside down on Thursday July 14, to make the freshly mown festival grounds tremble.

Established in 1989 by Carlo Di Antonio, the Dour Festival is the biggest music and touristic event in the French-speaking part of Belgium. For the last 26 years, the festival found the perfect formula to become one of the most important events in Europe: a unique, and eclectic line up, filled with impressive headliners and – more importantly – a lot of exciting discoveries, a terrain in the heart of the Borinage Terrils and an unsurpassed organisation; all of this for almost 200 000 young music lovers.

Together with this great headliner, we’re also glad to announce an American hip hop legend: DJ Premier. The Houston based producer will be performing twice at the festival: with his live band The Badder and with Royce da 5’9” as PHrhyme. Other great hip hop acts: English grime stars Stormzy and Lady Leshurr join the line up, as well as Soom T to defend the Scottisch honour, and the french connection: Vald and Seth Gueko.

They celebrate the comeback of scratch team Birdy Nam Nam, as well as some newcomers: the Ukranian princess of techno Nastia, and the king of the Berling groove, 5-daytickets& 1-daytickets and travel packages departing from UK are now available for sale at www.dourfestival.be

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
