Mekitburn Festival - Announcement
“What we call the beginning is often the end and to make an end is to make a
beginning. The end is where we start from.”- T.S. Eliot
You might have noticed that it was rather quiet on the Mekitburn Festival front these last months. Unfortunately for us, this didn’t mean we were all on a holiday enjoying Pina Colada’s & a well-deserved foot massage.
Instead, we have been digging deep within ourselves, looking for a path to determine the future of the festival.
Like many small & medium-sized festivals, it’s a real challenge to be self-sufficient when keeping the drinks & tickets affordable, while the expectation for bigger artists & a better experience increases all the time. We were forced to make some major changes to the festival this year, which seemed to be a wrong turn for some of our previous visitors.
We aren’t superstitious at all, but after the recent 13th edition it seems wise to say goodbye to our festival on good terms. It has been a huge part of the lives from more than hundreds of volunteers & thousands of visitors over the years, so it was no easy decision to make.

Since the flame is still burning bright in the heart of the people behind Mekitburn Festival, the future is looking promising. Instead of focussing most of our attention on one festival, we will organize several musical/cultural events throughout the year.
And who knows? We might be back at Domein Drie Fonteinen with something else entirely next year. Or not. Wait and see.
We want to thank each & every one of you. A lot of special people come to mind (you know who you are), the crew, all the volunteers, all the artists, all our partners & sponsors, the city of Vilvoorde, Domein Drie Fonteinen,… but especially YOU, YOU & YOU for supporting us & sharing your warmth with us each and every time.
