Couleur Café is a three-day world music festival reflecting the multicultural city that Brussels is today. It’s hosted at ‘Tour & Taxis’, one of the most beautiful industrial sites in Europe. With more than 40 concerts, Couleur Café offers the best of R&B, hip hop, world, afro, reggae, dub, Latin, salsa, son, raï and rock in outdoor dance halls and inside the industrial buildings. Towards the night, the festival features electronic music to put your sense of rhythm to the test.

Maybe one of the coziest free summer festivals Brussels has to offer. The location is a bit out of the city centre but very close to the Atomium. It’s inside the green amphitheater of the adjoining park. Hosted by the 9 youth clubs of Brussels this festival has a non-commercial vibe and offers besides quality music of course - lots of food stands and animation.

Date coming soon.

It’s like the 4th of July, but with good beer instead of stars and stripes. To celebrate the fact that we’ve had a crazy and wonderful independent country since the 21st of July in 1830, we have spectacular fireworks and a military parade. But every Brusseleir knows the real party happens a day before (20 July), when locals get drunk, dance and sing to Belgian classics like Le Grand Jojo and Lou & The Hollywood Bananas on the marketplace in the Marolles. If you’re lucky, it rains, because only then it’s really Le Bal National.

Erm... a beach? In Brussels? OK, it took us some improvising with trucks full of sand, plastic coconut trees and cocktail cabanas, but this comes close to a summer beach, right next to the canal and with a skyscraper skyline. It’s probably the only event in Brussels where really everybody comes together, from Moroccan familes to Russian machos to sexy Brazilian silhouettes. Brussels beach is also popular with the male gay community - all those oiled naked upper bodies playing beach volley! Big disappointment: you’re not allowed to swim in the canal, and you already have to leave between 22.00 and 23.00.

Pissing in the bushes, groups of blowing dreadlocks, ear damage after nine hours in the techno tent... How we love the big festivals! But if you feel like something else for a change, you might enjoy Boterhammen In Het Park and Feeërieën in Brussels. During lunch hours, local bands play in the park next to the Royal Palace, and when it’s getting dark, more international bands take over the music kiosk from 1841. The music stays intimate (singer-songwriters, weird country, electronic dub, ambient pop) which explains the title Feeërieën - something like magic fairy time.
Date coming soon.

There’s too many summer festivals in Brussels. From May to August, no weekend goes by without one. Strangely, the name ‘Brussels Summer Festival’ was not taken yet, so now we have this one too. Tickets are around € 40 for ten evenings, and a lot of the famous classic museums are included in the price - so you don’t get bored during daytime. This year, bands like Louise Attaque, St Germain Louane, Balthazar, Fun Lovin' Criminals, etc will rock the stages of ‘Brussels Summer Festival’.-

If you just came from Bruges or Amsterdam, you’ll notice the difference: where are the bikes? Nowhere. In Brussels, people take their cars to go to the bakery, even if the car is parked further away than the shop. There is only one exception to the crazy traffic in this city: Sunday Without Cars. Suddenly, you can hear a bird whistle. It’s one of the most beautiful days in the year, biking downhill on the biggest boulevards.

Nuit Blanche, which means “sleepless night” or “white night” in French, is the perfect day to explore Brussels by night. Nuit Blanche allows you to enter places that are normaly closed at night during the whole year. Besides the official programmation almost every hip bar in the city centre organises something, from comedy to raves.

Bâtard means bastard, but in a good way. This festival shows what Brussels is all about, with an international mix of young (mostly under 25) dancers, photographers, musicians, and actors. They do not only perform in theatres, but also on a basketball field, in an old school or at a supermarket entrance. You have never heard of any of these artists before, but everyone with the right sense of adventure feels right in his / her place. You start the night at a meeting point, but then it’s a total surprise where they’ll take you in the neighbourhood.

Date coming soon.
