Le Guess Who? 2021/2022 (English)

In 2021, Le Guess Who? celebrated its fourteenth edition from 11-14 November. The 15th edition of the festival dedicated to showcasing boundary-crossing music & culture from all over the world, takes place from 10-13 November 2022 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Le Guess Who? platforms underrepresented sounds that are rarely heard in other places--sounds that deserve attention not only for their merit, but also because they have the power to enrich lives. At LGW, artists push the boundaries of expectations and lead us to the idea of something bigger: the unprecedented diversity of human creativity. 

Across four days Le Guess Who? takes over the entire city center of Utrecht, with over 150 artists performing in pop venues, theaters, churches, warehouses, and clubs. Exhibitions, art installations, films, talks and other satellite events appear at cafés, restaurants, movie houses, wharf cellars, public squares and the hidden corners of the city.

Throughout the years, Le Guess Who? has grown to become a leading international festival, known for its unparalleled presentation of genre-challenging music. In 2019, visitors from 61 different countries travelled to Utrecht in November to attend the festival.
