No guitar festival without an EXPO with guitars, dealers and builders.
The Antwerpen Gitaarfestival is the place to be for all guitar lovers to hear, try out, order or even buy outright. And like every year, we give ample way to local Belgian talent! A cosy meeting place to encourage the dialogue between makers and players in between concerts, lectures, competitions and masterclasses.
