Bruis 2021

The kickstart of your season is here. Also in 2021, Bruis Festival in Maastricht will kick off the club season, but not without closing the festival season with a bang. The three stages, filled with international bands and acts, are a feast for both the adventurous festival-goer and the seasoned music lover.


Are you going to Bruis Festival 2021 for one day, or will you stay the whole weekend? The choice is yours! Tickets for Friday, Saturday or Sunday cost €32,50 per day. A whole festival weekend costs thus a total of only €97,50. That is a lot of festival for little money!


In the light of current regulations in regard to COVID-19 every visitor needs to bring a valid ticket, ID and a COVID certificate to get access to the festival. You can obtain this certificate once you’re fully vaccinated, recently recovered from COVID-19 or got tested negative on the virus within 24 hours prior to the event. More information can be found on the Testen voor Toegang website.


Every year during the first weekend of September, the Bruis Festival descends on Maastricht. With musical programming that is a true delight for both the seasoned music lover and the casual festival goer. But it doesn't stop there. In a Burgundian city like Maastricht, the festival does everything to make the golden frame shine even more. The Bruis Festival therefore excels in a total experience, set up by musicians and artists for those who enjoy life.

Origin Bruis

The Bruis Festival originated in 2007, when the Muziekgieterij developed a pop festival for the city on behalf of the City of Maastricht. No less than 14 years, and 3 locations later, the festival lands as a Euregional household name in the courtyard of Muziekgieterij in Maastricht.

The location

This year the Bruis Festival will take place in the courtyard of Muziekgieterij, at the Richie Backfireplein, and expands with two stages in the venue. The gates will be opened to the public again and this way we will divide the stages so you can enjoy even more music.

Other rules

Bruis Festival is subject to house rules.
