Down_under hopes you’ve had a great musical summer so far and that you 're all ready to get your dancing shoes out of the cupboard again for some action! We’ve been away for a while, but surely haven’t been spending our time being lazy. Down_under will be back for another season full of great parties. We have put our minds together again to bring you the best dj talent around, to let you all experience that special down_under vibe at Silo again.
For this first party after our summer break, down_under proudly presents a selection of some of Belgium’s finest dj’s to kick off the season. Of course we can’t fit them all into one night, but it will be great to cover Belgium’s underground house and techno scene in the main room of Club Silo on this first down_under edition with only Belgian artists.
On the 4th of september, Silo will burst through the fresh sounds of Massimo Dacosta (Homecoming Music), Massimo Girardi (Monique Musique), Igor (Wildfamily), Tofke (Peoples), Koen (Forbidden Fruit) and of course down_under residents Jitter and Dezz Terquez, who are going to play their first back to back set for you all.
