Jazz goes on holiday at the Music Village :

 

65 NIGHTS OF LIVE MUSIC IN THE CENTRE OF BRUSSELS

 

 For the 10th time, the Music Village has decided to let the live music rule during 65 summer nights, for the greater joy of local and foreign music lovers. We are talking of quality music, easily accessible to all kinds of audiences, for a soft admission charge between: 7,50€  and  10€. A cool end of a hot day, a refreshing moment after a national shower; in the company of visiting friends, as a couple or as a family, children admitted.  On the programme: some of the best  Belgian jazzmen (Ivan Paduart, Jan de haas, Eve Beuvens, Sal La Rocca , Michel Mainil,…and many others.) and some soul and world music evenings (Tony Osanah, Loumen, John Arcadius, Zakie, …). In short, quality music for every type of ear.  And remember: take it easy, it's... summertime!
