In the flatlands of Wallonia about 150km south west of Brussels is the little town of Dour. There’s a festival that’s been happening there since 1989 and it may be one of Belgium’s best kept secrets…
DOUR Festival 2022
13-17 July 2022
Discerning techno heads that we are at Fnoob Techno, we like our techno pounding and our festivals friendly. We think Dour (pronounced “doorrr” for you Native English speakers out there) is definitely one to check out.

In fact the reason we’re writing this blog is because Robert, our head honcho went to Dour back in 2019 and had a blast! Anyway….
Dour isn’t just techno, so you can bring your techno widows along and they’re sure to find something to watch and listen to. Our notable mentions for non-techno go to Sleaford Mods and Metronomy but there are loads more…..Apparently 220 artists across 8 stages or areas.
Just so we’re clear you can obviously camp there. There’s a massive camping area they call Dour Campfest which they even have warm up acts playing at from the 11 July 2022. You can literally get totally festied for a week!
There’s line ups and there’s line ups…
Blawan, always looking and sounding tasty... hear him play live on Saturday 16 July
I hate Models
And many, many more……
And of course other stuff including…. fitness classes! so you can work off the previous nights excesses!(How sensible… or is that sadistic!)
Who knows? if the promoters are smart maybe next year they’ll bring the underground along… a Fnoob Techno Marquee showcasing the finest underground techno talent would go down well… watch this space!
