Couleur Café Festival, a 3 day urban music festival in Brussels, next to the iconic Atomium // 29th June > 1st July 2018
Couleur Café is an urban world music festival with more than 60 concerts and DJ-sets spread over three days in Brussels, Belgium. A visit to Couleur Café makes travelling the world as easy as looking out your front window. The main musical ingredients are hip hop, soul, funk, world, reggae, dub, electronic music & latin but some extra juicy ingredients spice up this unique festival: 50 world cuisine stalls, a young designers market, magnificent cocktail bars with live DJ's, free dancing classes and the blazing brass bands dust off your dancing shoes. Social & ecological engagement are as important as the diversity in the cultural and musical program of Couleur Café.
In 2017 the festival moved to a completely new site, a beautiful park near the Atomium, one of the historic landmarks of Belgium and still only 15 min away from the heart of Brussels. The Camping site doubled in size and is filled with activity! With its cultural mix, Couleur Café is the perfect reflection of the cosmopolitan city it calls home, Brussels.
Previous acts include The Roots, Die Antwoord, Damian Marley & Nas, Groundation, DJ Shadow, James Brown, Janelle Monáe, Seal, Ben Harper, Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, SOJA, Tracy Chapman, Cesaria Evora, George Clinton, Amadou & Mariam, Macklemore & Ryan Lews,
