There will be no edition of the one-day festival Hear Hear! this year which took place for the first time last year on the Pukkelpop meadow in Hasselt, the organisation announced.

Hear Hear! was launched by Pukkelpop last year, after two years of Covid-19 measures. The indie festival’s bill in 2022 included the likes of Liam Gallagher, Pixies, Editors, Strand of Oaks, Balthazar and Whispering Sons.

A total of 15,000 music fans visited the meadow in Hasselt.

"Hear Hear! was very positively received by the festival-goers present, as evidenced by the numerous reactions we received during and after the festival," said Frederik Luyten of Pukkelpop.

"Unfortunately, in these times, that is not always enough and as an organisation, we have to dare to make choices. In 2023 we are fully committed to a rock-solid Pukkelpop edition and Hear Hear! will stay in the fridge for a while. Next year we will gladly revisit this."

Pukkelpop also announced that the first details for this year’s edition are coming soon.
