Canadian Indie music going international
Le Guess Who? is a yearly music festival which started in 2007 and quickly rose to international acclaim with its excellent program and unique atmosphere. Founders Johan Gijsen and Bob van Heur both shared a fascination for the unique pop music scene in Montreal, Canada. With this shared love, they made plans of bringing that pop music environment and recreating that special feeling to Utrecht. Their plan was a resounding success and resulted in a dazzling repertoire of Canada's most exciting Indie acts: Broken Social Scene, Caribou and Hot Hot Heat to name a few.
Artistic and groundbreaking pop music
In the upcoming years, the program expanded beyond Canadian acts and brought in international indie gems to Tivoli, Ekko, dB's and other Utrecht music venues. With a focus on worldwide “artistic and groundbreaking pop music” the festival organizes a well-curated, almost perfect representation of today's most exciting Indie acts. Previous editions included American dream pop darlings Beach House, Swedish song-writer Tallest Man on Earth, Finnish electronic producer Huoratron and several innovative Dutch artists.
Utrecht Indie Route
In addition, the festival provides a platform for national and international creative initiatives. The “Utrecht Indie Route” guides festival-goers to the finest hidden places in the city. “Le Mini Who” brings together several Utrecht entrepreneurs and organizes freely-accessible music and art performances in various shops, boutiques, galleries and restaurants.
