A ticket is valid for a (Kids)OdeGand pass, which gives you access to:

  • your chosen route,
  • the boats, taxi bikes and
  • additional performances at De Krook and the Orpheus Institute between 1 pm and 7 pm.

When booking your ticket, you decide what your first concert will be on your route. On the day itself, you can exchange your ticket for your (Kids)OdeGand pass at your first concert one hour in advance. Missed out on the first concert? You can collect your pass also at the second or third concert of your choice.

The closing spectacle (Gras- and Korenlei) and the concerts in open air (Sint-Baafsplein, Bisdomplein, City Pavillion) are free of charge.


From 1 pm you can climb aboard at one of the many jetties: Gras- and Korenlei, Ketelvest, Bijlokekaai, De Krook and the Reep. The last boat departs at 6 pm. Jetties are listed at the bottom of the page on the city map.

On the Sint-Baafsplein you can exchange your boat for a taxi bike, thanks to our partners KBC, North Sea Port and De Gentenaar. Our cheerful hosts and hostesses will be delighted to cycle you to the concert of your choice.


Come to the OdeGand Village on the Graslei (between 1 pm and 5:30 pm), hand over a filled-in OdeGand voucher in and enjoy a refreshing glass of something sparkling. You’ll find an OdeGand voucher in Het Nieuwsblad from Tuesday 10 September 2019. Cut out the voucher, fill it in and enjoy your refreshing drink.


On Saturday 14 September, OdeGand will be setting the tone for the 17th time. For a single day, historic Ghent will become our canvas, and we will be colouring it with thrilling sounds. Along the idyllic banks of the Lys, across the squares and in the many hidden corners of the city, numerous exquisite (musical) acts will be adding colour to OdeGand. Will you opt for heavenly music, fairy-tale sounds or catchy percussion; or would you prefer thoroughbred classical? Choose your favourite route now. This will allow you to explore the selected concerts at your own speed and you can be certain that there is a space reserved for you.
