Ieperfest is not only the longest running outdoor underground festival in Europe, but also a household name across the world. We offer a stage to an international variety of underground bands. Back in the day hardcore was not as popular and mainstream accepted as it is nowadays. It was far from easy but we worked hard and managed to keep the festival alive. We saw it evolving from a small scale festival to an event with over 10.000 visitors from all over the world.
Since the very beginning in 1992, all the offered food @ Ieperfest is 100% vegan. The ingredients used, are coming from local, organic farms as much as possible (if not homegrown by some of our ieperfest shitworkers!). This is one of our biggest issues in the green policy of the fest. Yes, a plant-based diet is healthier for you and the planet, but veganism is not just a food thing. It’s a growing ethical movement and one of the most powerful choices one can make in life.
