In 2013, Ghent Flanders Festival will present its 56th edition (14>28 September 2013). Attracting over 55,000 visitors each year, the Festival has become the talk of the music scene with events like “OdeGand” (the grand opening event). The festival’s success is in great part due to its unique mix of diversity and creativity. Each year, over 180 concerts (classical and world music) are presented by more than 1500 (inter)national artists. Ghent Flanders Festival is different in that it is only content if it can present the very best.
