- City centre of Ghent
For two days, Ghent becomes a canvas for us to paint with thrilling sounds.
Along the idyllic banks of the Lys, across the squares and in the many hidden corners of the city, a variety of delightful acts gives colour to OdeGand.
This year marks OdeGand’s 20th anniversary and we’re celebrating with not one, but two days of OdeGand, on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 September!
Find out what’s on offer on the Saturday at OdeGand En Route! and purchase your tickets now. The five previous OdeGand festival organisers have each chosen their highlight from the past 20 years—so this year is one you definitely won’t want to miss!
Choose your route now with three unforgettable concerts for this festive edition and celebrate with us!
Descend to the banks of the Gras and Korenlei on Friday evening, 16 September, for an open-air concert where east and west engage in an exciting dialogue. Armenia's The Naghash Ensemble combines the mysticism of Armenian folk music with the energy of rock and jazz. Together with composer John Hodian and our very own Flanders Symphony Orchestra, they provide an inspiring mix of film music, classical, jazz and their traditional sounds.
Fri 16 September | 20:30 to 22:00 | 't Kuipke
Especially for OdeGand 20! we asked Frederik Sioen and Osama Abdulrasol to select young and promising talent from the Artevelde city, The Next Gen from Ghent, so to speak. For the Slotspektakel on Saturday night, 17 September, they proudly present: 9000 Youth Collective. Couple that with Irene Àlvarez' inspired flamenco group, interludes at the water's edge by Ghent's top ballerina Nina Tonoli, a blazing fireworks display to usher in the cultural season, and the 20th edition of OdeGand promises to be an unforgettable spectacle!
The Odegand closing spectacle will take place in 't Kuipke on 17 September from 20:30-22:00
