Apparat will play the Leuven club's last party in April.
After two years of complaints from a nearby resident, Belgium's Silo club looks set to close at the end of April.
Silo has been a linchpin of Leuven's nightlife for years. Formerly known as Food, the 800 capacity venue has played host to countless DJs and live acts, from huge names like John Digweed to underground favorites like Moodymann. It gained recognition outside of Belgium as well, with Red Bull's Elektropedia putting it in their list of the "Best Belgian Clubs of All Time."
According to reports, Silo's demise can be traced back to one man who has steadily complained about the club since moving into its neighborhood two years ago. Silo's management are still trying negotiate a way to keep the club open, though at this point closure seems inevitable.
Even with the end in sight, there's still plenty to look forward to at Silo. Over the next few weeks, the club will host sets from Âme, Anja Schneider, Booka Shade, Matthias Tanzmann, Michael Mayer and Visionquest. German producer Apparat headlines the final party on April 23rd.
