OPEN THE BOX
These events will focus on creating an intimate and open-minded atmosphere while inviting international guest DJ's (mainly first timers) in Brussels along local talents. On the musical menu you can expect a refined and eclectic blend of house music coming straight from the heart with a pinch of funk & disco here and there. That being said, the concept wonâ€™t re-invent the wheel... but will do its best to interbreed musical styles as much as possible since the whole idea here is based on diversity rather than exclusivity !
