Belgium has no shortage of festivals, but this year brings a promising newcomer: VestiVille. The festival in Lommel, successor of the popular Dutch Vestival, is ready to win the hearts of Belgians with a banging line-up including Cardi B, A$AP Rocky and Migos.
VestiVille might be a newcomer to the Belgian summer programme, but its organisers boast plenty of experience. “We have been in the events business since 2005,” explains Vestival CEO Aymira Ty. “We started off with indoor parties, then moved onto the outdoor Vestival in 2014, which we organised successfully for four years on different sites.”
When Vestival outgrew the various urban location options in the Netherlands, the organisation decided to hop across the border to Lommel, where the perfect space was found just outside the town centre. As newcomers with towering ambition, VestiVille was subject to initial scrutiny from the council, but was soon given the green light.
VestiVille aims to attract a young, fashionable crowd of mainstream music lovers. Its line-up is a resolute choice for chart-topping pop and hip-hop music. The festival will also harbour six themed entertainment areas. These platforms bring all worlds of urban culture together, promoting beauty, wellness, gaming & e-sports, urban sports, fashion and art.
Despite coinciding with the legendary Rock Werchter festival, VestiVille tickets are selling like hotcakes. “We had no other choice for the dates this year, so we knew we had to serve a top-notch line-up to win people over. Our ample experience and great artist relations have helped us book big names,” concludes Ty.
Vestiville, 28 – 30 June at Kristalpark Lommel. Check out the line-up and get your tickets at:
