Luc & Wout, father and son, are founders and co-organizers of the festival. Their job is to make sure everything falls into place in the end and every team can do its job without any problems. Of course assembling the line-up is an important part of the job.

It seems like the weather gods are into post-rock. We've been monitoring the weather forecast and it's looking better every day. Just to show you how excellent it's going to be, we made this chart with temperatures and chance of rain.

Walk to the festival

Walk to the festival

There will be a shuttle driving between the train station and the festival but also consider walking to the festival through the Flemish country side. It's a little bit more than 3km if you take the scenic route and it leads you through the fields and forests surrounding the festival.

For this years edition of the festival we have some pretty cool new releases coming up. But also recently released albums you can hear live at #dnk17 and some very interesting represses...

With only a few weeks until the 13th edition of the festival kicks off we thought it was a good idea to ask Artuur (who's doing his internship at dunk!HQ) to assemble this podcast with his personal highlights for the upcoming festival...

A little while ago Lost In Kiev came to visit us at dunk!HQ and we all went to the Deaftone Studios around the corner to record a song or two: Somnipathy and Mirrors from their latest album Nuit Noire. An excellent warm-up for what they will bring at dunk!festival in a few weeks...

More forest shows please!

More forest shows please!

We are all excited about those secret forest shows so we thought it might be a good idea to set up a few more of those this year. There will be three bands a day performing in the forest. So nine in total. We moved the location a little bit deeper into the woods...

We're sorry to inform you that Jambinai had to cancel their show at dunk!festival2017. But that also means there was a spot available again. We're really happy that BRIQUEVILLE immediately confirmed to join the line-up for #dnk17! And we're absolutely sure this will be another highlight of the festival.

#dnk17: Swans headlining day 1

Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to announce the very last name to join the line-up for #dnk17. We're extremely happy to have these legends playing their last festival show in Belgium. Ever! So it's actually already historical to only have them on the line-up.

Let us shine our light on this years line-up. It took us a little longer than usual but we also have a little bit more bands than usual so that makes sense right? Anyway, we listened through the entire line-up (again) and it got us even more excited than we already were! It's going to be a wonderful musical adventure for three days with exciting plot twists and everything. ...

Russian Circles • Live at dunk!fest 2016 [2xLP] pre-order

This album is the very first live album by Russian Circles and it was recorded at dunk!festival 2016 where they headlined that edition. We knew what these guys from Chicago were capable of so we expected a lot of their show but we didn't knew it was going to be perfect. So we thought we should have this pressed on vinyl...
