pkp stages


With an abundance of new talent just waiting to be discovered, Pukkelpop has decided to add two new stages to give the stars of tomorrow (or the day after) every chance to show off their chops. Ever since its inception, one of the festival’s guiding principles has been to help launch new talent. Indeed, there’s so much new talent nowadays that the organisers have decided to introduce two new stages, viz. the Lift and the Booth. Both stages will accommodate up-and-coming artists and DJs whom the organisers think will become extremely successful in the coming years. LIFT The Lift accommodates some twenty exciting artists that are responsible for long queues at showcase festivals such as SXSW in Austin, Texas. Pop, rock, electronic music – anything goes, just as long as it sounds like tomorrow’s hype! The Lift welcomes promising acts on the verge of a breakthrough; if you want to catch them next year, they’ll likely draw a much bigger crowd on one of the bigger Pukkelpop stages. After all, even the biggest stars have to start small! DISCOVER THE LIFT LINE-UP BOOTH One night you’re hanging out in a gloomy club, the next day you’re squinting at the sun in Kiewit: the Booth is the perfect setting for a no-holds-barred open air bash. Think uniquely personal record collections with Italo disco gems, 12” Detroit techno, forgotten classics from way back when… The Booth offers a mix of everything from hiphop to excellent dance tracks and anything in between!
