The History of Lockerse Festival
The Lokeren Festival is a ten-day city festival which takes place during the month of August in Lokeren, East Flanders, Belgium. The Lokeren Festival took first place in 1975. The 36th edition takes place from Friday, July 30 through Sunday, August 8, 2010.
What began as a small party organized by local youth and a few enthusiasts in 35 years grew into a full 10-day city festival. The festival grounds on the Grand Quai has today a capacity of 15,000 visitors. The term “Lokerse Party ” has become a generic term for all activities within those 10 days in the city of Lokeren (as happened with the Ghent Festivities). Other activities (stages) during the period of the Lokeren Festival and the Fonnefeesten Polifonics.
Over the years, the festival has many large domestic and foreign names soon. Some examples: Simple Minds, The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy, Iggy & The Stooges, Madness, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Human League, the Sex Pistols, Sinead O’Connor and Front 242.
