Final schedule online!

The programmers of Glimps finally finished an impressive puzzle. Today Glimps announces the final schedule. The most fanatic music lovers can now start planning their routes for a night full of music.

For instance, you can start with the British prodigy Bosco Delrey, make a quick stop at Finnish NEØV, and then take a small break with Dans Dans and Isbells at Handelsbeurs. With recharged batteries, you take a stroll along The Feather, Coely, Mozes and the Firstborn, Yast, and empty those batteries again with Compact Disk Dummies. Of course, this is just an idea. There probably won't be two festival attendants with the exact same trajectory, and that's just the way we like it. It just goes to show that the programme is quite varied, with musical quality being a thread throughout the festival. Whether it's electro, rock, jazz, crossover or whatever; at Glimps, you can see the European talent of tomorrow.

Schedules for Friday and Saturday can be found here.
You can check out all the bands playing at Glimps using Spotify or Deezer

Glimps 2013: Showcase and Conference

As you may have already heard, Glimps recently announced a whole batch of new names. Glimps is an international showcase festival in Ghent, Belgium. The festival wants to direct people's attention to talented bands and artists from regions that rarely get a chance in the line-up of most European clubs and festivals.

Glimps offers "Tomorrow's Music Now": more than 60 new and upcoming artists present themselves to the public, and to music professionals from all over the world. The audience makes its way along the several stages that are spread over the city centre of Ghent: from small clubs, to prestigious concert halls. Glimps is a unique festival, and one of the music events to look forward to this season.
But Glimps is more than a showcase festival. It's also a conference that helps you broaden your network and professional horizons.


Glimps is about broadening your horizons on a professional level. Apart from the many concerts, Glimps also offers an interesting conference section, where you can get to know other music professionals from all over the world. There will be a whole lot of interesting panels, discussions, and workshops. The conference focuses on themes that are relevant for the time of day, and for the ever-changing situations of whatever kind the music industry is in. Speakers are invited to give keynote speeches on these topics, or host debates to get a better understanding of each others point of view. During well-hosted speed meetings and a networking lunch, you have the possibility to meet new people, who you might work with in the future; or make new contacts who can help you to get a better view on certain foreign music scenes.

Apart from that, you also get to know the lovely city of Ghent: you can discover tons of cool venues, and see the historical center of one of the most beautiful cities in Western Europe. Plus, it's in Belgium. We have beer.
