Couleur Café Brussels, June 27-29

In 1994, Couleur Café moved to Tour & Taxis, one of the most beautiful industrial sites in Europe. Nowadays, Couleur Café can no longer be rightfully described as a world music festival but more like a festival that proposes a full array of music styles coming from all over the world.
With more than 40 concerts over three days, Couleur Café offers the best of R&B, hip hop, world, afro, reggae, ragga, dub, dancehall, Latin, salsa, son, raï and rock under three huge tents.

There is also a dance floor featuring electronic music where festivalgoers can also feel the force of the musical mix. Couleur Café is an apt reflection of the city it calls home, Brussels, with its cultural mix that makes travelling the world as easy as looking out your front window. Although today it welcomes a crowd of 70,000 over three days, Couleur Café maintains a human scale. Independently organised and managed by Zig Zag, a non-profit organisation, Couleur Café preserves its vibrant party atmosphere 18 years after it started.
