Listen! A Brussels Future Music Festival
2nd Edition - 30, 31 March & 1 April 2017
After a successful first edition in 2016, attended by thousands of people, spanning several iconic venues in the city and featuring live acts, DJ sets, inspirational talks and a record fair, “Listen! A Brussels Future Music Festival” returns on 30, 31 March and 1 April for its second edition in Brussels, the heart of Europe.
Listen! focuses on electronic music and innovation.
The second edition will take place on 3 days with an even more ambitious program that aims to be part of a global movement built on diversity and creativity, in a passionate and professional context.
Thanks to its diverse, qualitative and accessible program, it enables the Belgian scene to interact with the music industry and join the conversation about its future by offering record fairs, conferences, workshops, internet radio and so much more. The program allows visitors to emerge in a balanced out mix of local, national and international artists, while it offers the artist themselves a setting where the past, present and future of music culture come together.
