Le Mini Who? is a spin-off festival of Le Guess Who?. It turns venues, cafes, art spaces and even a fire station of the fast-developing and creative area Cartesius into improvised venues for (mainly) Dutch underground acts to play. Come and catch a set by one of the unknown and talented bands, discover this part of Utrecht and enjoy poetry, performances and fine arts.

For its 11th edition on Sunday 10 November 2019, Le Mini Who? settles in the Cartesius area, located in the northwest of Utrecht. Last year the satellite festival celebrated its ten-year anniversary edition at Rotsoord, after nine previous editions in the Breedstraat neighbourhood.

With the second move in two years, Le Mini Who? again immerses in a creative and constantly evolving area where new collaborations with like-minded partners arise. Some of the venues featured, like dB's and WAS., are familiar territory to the regular Le Guess Who? visitor.

"At Le Guess Who?, there is always more, like Le Mini Who? – the day festival spin-off showcasing the Dutch underground band circuit at local digs." - FACT Magazine

Furthermore, the upcoming years will see Le Mini Who? focusing on broadening its substantive vision, by covering a wider range of genres and artistic disciplines such as visual arts and poetry. With its edgy industrial vibe and the various new cultural initiatives popping up, Cartesius seamlessly connects to that mission.
