Parties and concerts

The façade of Vooruit is proudly emblazoned with the word ‘Feestlokaal’, meaning ‘party venue’. Hosting over 70 parties a year, Vooruit is still well and truly honouring that declaration to this day. Vooruit is still the number one location for exciting parties and concerts in Ghent.

With the Concertzaal (capacity: 1,110 people) and the Balzaal (420 people), Vooruit is home to two historic spaces that are perfectly suited for parties and concerts.

We provide the following professional support and more for such events: security, cloakroom, staffed toilets, signage. We also have different bar formulas.
