House and electro in Antwerp… it's not for twerps.
The obvious joke you read above is just one reason why we never get invited to DJ at this wonderful festival in Antwerp. Luckily we're really good at sneaking, so we usually sneak in through an intricate series of tunnels dug by diligent dwarves. That or we whack our credit cards out and buy some legit tickets.
With eight (eight!) stages and a host of international and Belgian acts, it's the perfect weekender for those who think they can hack dancing and Belgium all in one go. We can't. Only joking, of course we can. Plus we always pack gallons of coffee to keep us awake through the Belgian night. Okay, our mum does.
See you there!
Be sure to download the festival app. It comes with a whole hog-load of information including a nifty little festival map.
