Meer Stemmig Gent is a festival held in and around the Church of Saint Macarius and Saint Bavo’s Abbey in Ghent. The festival comprises an opening concert and a day filled with various activities. The aim of the festival is to shine a spotlight on the unique, rich cultural heritage of Flemish and other polyphony of the renaissance era.

On Sunday, there are performances by El Grillo (BE), Hathor Consort (BE), Currende (BE) and Ensemble Dialogos (FR). In addition, there are workshops and an open mic for young talent. You can also enjoy free performances by Wim Claeys and a music lecture by Fabrice Fitch (UK).
