more. Festival Director Bavo Vanden Broeck says, “At Dranouter we like to mix the big shots with the upcoming. So having Jake Bugg on the same stage as Elephant Sessions makes me happy! Also we like to mingle acts with a long tradition with younger artists, so having Richard Thompson (for the fifth or sixth time) on our main stage is as much a statement as programming Jake Morley in the church. But having French gipsy punk band Les Negresses Vertes back twenty-six years after seeing them at Dranouter (still as a visitor then) is my personal highlight (even though I know that singer Elno is no longer with them and with us). festivaldranouter.be
