HORST 2017

8-9 September 2017
Holsbeek, Horstraat 28, Belgium

HORST is a two-day celebration of art and music in a setting like no other. The festival collaborates with a vanguard of talented artists and offers a well-selected worldwide collage of electronic music and in situ visual arts.

Nestled away in the green Hageland hills you’ll find Horst, a 15th century moated castle. An inspiring space for site-specific art and the perfect festival backdrop.

In search for new, undiscovered subspaces, this fourth edition will offer thought provoking insights into the framework of the medieval site. This year’s program will explore the creation of temporary places, highlighting existing elements and creating a variety of new and exciting spheres on the castle grounds.

Besides its stone keep, music towers over the water and green woodlands. HORST offers a genre-spanning repertoire, a line-up covering versatile ground, a program embodying as much enthusiasm as wealth, flair and talent. Continuing with a two-stage affair, HORST strives to excel in quality, not quantity.
