Belgium is a country that loves its arts and culture - from major concerts that attract audiences of 80,000 to festivals hosted by just about every city in the country - designed to boost its image and the economy. 'Les Ardentes' in Liège is only four years old but it's already a highlight of the annual arts calendar - much to the dismay of the town of Spa in the Ardennes,just 30 kilometers away. It also hosts a festival that takes place at exactly the same time. The two events are now competing for visitors and artistes.
