Program maker Gooikoorts Festival


I'm founding member and program maker of the Gooikoorts Festival. Gooikoorts is a yearly held festival for traditional folk music from Europe. Gooikoorts is part of Muziekmozaïek, impuls centre for folk and jazz music in Flanders-Belgium.

Since 2003 Gooikoorts established itself as one of the most specialised festivals in traditional folk music from Europe. International renown bands like Väsen, Xarnège, Susane Seivane, Janusz Prusinowski Trio, Blowzabella, Jamie Smith's Mabon and some of the greatest Belgian bands played at our festival during the past years.
Beside the music we offer on the different stages, we organize workshops, a luthier market and a an outstanding festival program for kids.

All this with famous Belgian beers in real glasses!, fine food and a lovely staff.
