Dance all night long to the beat of electronic music while visiting the exhibitions at BOZAR; that's the unique concept behind BOZAR NIGHT! Programmed twice a year since 2010, BOZAR NIGHT has become an unmissable event as part of Brussels night life. For the modest early-bird price of €10, the public can enjoy the best of electronic music, visit the major exhibitions of the moment, housed within a jewel of Art Deco architecture located right in the heart of Brussels – how can you resist? In 2017, the numbers attending BOZAR NIGHT doubled and exceeded 6600 visitors. An outstanding year!
Brussels Electronic Marathon 2017
“L’Union fait la Force”
Brussels Electronic Marathon is a celebration of a beautiful city and its citizens that make, play, or enjoy experiencing electronic music. BEM is a grassroots project that supports and promotes our local artists, places and spaces. This is the Sound of Brussels: BEM17 was 33 locations, 66 collectives and concepts, supported by some 130 volunteers, 65 events hosting 229 local artists, from all corners of the electronic music world (hip-hop, electronica, techno and house, noise, ambient and neoclassical as well as glitch and acousmatic). A diverse sound for a diverse city. A better future: electronic music and culture isn’t only late-night parties. Workshops for children, talks, screenings and concerts for the first generation of music lovers were all part of our event. Furthermore, a city is an organism that lives by day and by night, and as such topics such as health, transport and fairness are at the core of BEM’s DNA.
MAF Nights – One evening/One artist
Launched in May 2017, the idea behind MAF Nights could be summed up as one evening/one artist. This new monthly artistic and cultural event offered the public the chance to discover an artist and their work during a fleeting one-night exhibition on the first Thursday of every month. Aside from the encounters with exceptional artists, the autograph sessions and a litany of surprises, visitors also had the opportunity to visit the Museum of Fantasy Art and its unusual permanent collection.
MAF Nights have hosted among others the designer and illustrator David P., the photographer and poet Denis Leclercq and the plastic artist Aril. Special evenings have also been organised such as the night dedicated to the group exhibition Trolls & Bestioles, which brought together more than 70 Belgian and international artists.
