About the BSF

The Brussels Summer Festival has been given a facelift: a new logo, new dates and a new venue. On top of this, a first series of names that shows the festival aims higher each year.


The fourteenth edition of the BSF – which can be called the most eclectic music marathon of the country - will start on 14 August on the Mont des Arts. From then on the temperature will continue to rise until Wednesday 19 August, when the Place des Palais, redesigned for more visual and sound comfort, will set the stage for its overwhelming line-up which will thrill the many festivalgoers.


From Friday 14 till sunday 23 August the Madeleine venue will be the place to be for pop and rock concerts. Electro fans won’t be forgotten either, as they will be welcome every night from 11.30pm until 2am, for a the AFTERS/ELECTROCITY, the aftershows during which the beat will go on assiduously.
