“Originally a festival highlighting Canadian-bred artists, it has since doubled in length and exponentially increased its program lineup to become one of the premiere destinations in Europe to favor independent music and culture.” - Consequence of Sound, USA
"I had the pleasure to experience Le Guess Who? and was just overwhelmed by the loveliness of the event and especially the good nose for young and upcoming, but yet advanced and promising acts." - Guerolito Music, CH

UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS
Le Guess Who? is located in the unique premises of Utrecht city centre. Utrecht is the fourth largest city of the Netherlands, only 30 minutes away from Amsterdam.
Travel guide Lonely Planet rated Utrecht as #6 of the world’s unsung places: “this graceful city is bizarrely under-visited. Its old town is encircled by a medieval canal. Built to connect the canal side with Utrecht’s impressive townhouses, today these unique spaces are filled with bohemian cafes, shops, restaurants and bars.”
CNN recently mentioned “charming university town” Utrecht as a good alternative for jaded European hotspots: “Utrecht beats the old Amsterdam hands-down”.
