Halloween Festival, walk of lights and spirits
A now unmissable part of Brussels’ culture, the Halloween Festival - a walk with lights and spirits - brings thousands of gnomes, leprechauns, witches and monsters of all shapes and sizes together on 31st October each year. In 2019, the festival once again took place at the Museum and Centre for Fantastic Art, and also in different places around the Saint-Gilles district. With free entry, the festival brings entertainment, musical performances and theatrical improvisations together, and leads the public slowly towards a magnificent firework display and a large, popular dressing-up parade.

Nuits sonores & European Lab Brussels
Nuits Sonores & European Lab Brussels is an annual urban, innovative festival that is co-produced by BOZAR and the non-profit organisation Arty Farty Brussels. The event focuses on independent and electronic music, and offers a place for discussion to try to understand the big changes of our times and imagine what tomorrow’s culture will look like. The festival took place between 3rd and 6th October in eight places around Brussels. In linking an ideas forum with arts circuits and concerts, the event encouraged the people of today to imagine the world of tomorrow. The 2019 edition of Nuits Sonores & European Lab Brussels marked an important stage in the culmination of the project envisaged by teams from Brussels and Lyon. This was planned as a unique and innovative urban event that is also the beginning of a strong and unified transnational cooperation, rich both in meaning and cultural issues. Following the third edition, it is obvious that the festival has reinforced its Brussels’ roots and seen a growing audience.
Organ night fever
The organ like you’ve never seen or understood it... With Organ Night Fever, BOZAR invites you to an immersive musical experience with the sound of the organ from the Palais des Beaux-Arts. During a magical evening, this instrument shows off its loveliest sounds in a range of registers: electronic music, jazz, film scores, classical, etc. Great musicians from Belgium and beyond will help you appreciate the richness and versatility of this huge instrument, designed by Victor Horta, newly restored after 50 years of silence! On this occasion, the magnificent Henry Le Bœuf Hall is transformed: the auditorium is strewn with quilts and pillows for you to cocoon yourself in the atmosphere. A musical evening that promises to surprise and enchant, accompanied by the “king of instruments”.
Secret Rooftop by Warwick
The Secret Rooftop by Warwick is a pop-up terrace that is open every evening throughout the summer and is popular with the Brussels’ after-work crowd. Nestled on the roof of the Warwick Brussels hotel, the 150 m² terrace offers an unobstructed/panoramic view over the old town and the famous Grand Place Belfry. The bar, situated in the hotel’s most prestigious suite, offers a selection of cocktails, mocktails and other seasonal, refreshing drinks. But beware, you can only discover them once on the Rooftop, because none of our menus are published on social media.
From live jazz to tasting evenings and pop-up events, the Rooftop offers you a journey away from time and everyday cares, in a warm and friendly environment.
The Great Gatsby
At VIAGE, we love surprises and the unexpected; everything with a touch of glamour and excitement. This is why VIAGE is welcoming a show never before performed in Brussels, to its 14,500 m² setting. It’s not a coincidence that this immersive theatrical show has been invited to VIAGE. THE GREAT GATSBY is a unique experience; an unforgettable evening diving into the roaring twenties, where you can experience the show as if you were in the world of jazz, cocktails and exuberance of the 1920s. The location has been kept secret until the last minute.
