The Bilzen get together, a music Festival where artists perform formally and informally.
Jazz Bilzen was a multi-day open air jazz and pop festival that took place from 1965 to 1981 in the Belgian city of Bilzen. Jazz Bilzen was the first festival in Europe where jazz and pop music were brought together. Therefore, Jazz Bilzen is sometimes called the "mother of all (European) festivals". Like the National Jazz and Blues Festival in the UK, and the International Jazz Festival in Comblain-la-Tour, which were the paradigms, Bilzen began solely as a jazz festival, but pretty soon blues, folk, rock and soul, even punk and new wave, came to be incorporated as well. From the 1980s onwards the festival was superseded by Torhout-Werchter, which has now become Rock Werchter. Initially, Humo, a popular Belgian weekly magazine, was the main sponsor. After some years, they withdrew because of the ongoing problems with security and the riots they caused.
