“Dare to do”, that’s the slogan of the Blandinos! Françoise Vanhecke, Alessandro dell’Anna, Bert De Coensel, Valerio Lorenzoni, Marc Leman, Serge Hoste, Kristoffel Demoen, Dominik Phyfferoen and Bram Decrock will bring exactly the kind of music that you expect from a Jazz Combo… The perfect start to a perfect evening!

Spinewood is an acclaimed cover band. Pop, rock, jazz and blues, from the 1930s until today – all of that and more to be heard on 28 November! Sneak preview


DJ MrFEB30 considers himself a Swiss army knife dj. Useful and versatile. He engages Pink Floyd in a battle with Rihanna and has Pharrell dueling with Nirvana. He won’t quit until your doctoral dancing legs are completely acidified.
