in September, Ghent Flanders Festival kicks off the cultural season with OdeGand. This music festival is set to shake Ghent to its foundations—all day long and into the night—with 60 indoor and open-air concerts over 15 great locations. OdeGand will take over the whole of the centre of Ghent for an extraordinary festival on and alongside the water. During this unique event, you can travel from one concert to the other on foot, by taxi bike or by the handy canal boats. Let yourself go and enjoy any of the numerous truly surprising music genres from world music to pure classical music. In the evening we’ll illuminate the Graslei and Korenlei with a concert on the water and an exceptional dance and firework show. Let your cultural season get underway with a bang at OdeGand!
