Since 2016, Listen Festival has stood at the epicentre of Belgium’s alternative electronic music scene.
The five-day event takes place across various venues in Brussels – including the underground tunnels beneath the Louiza Square, the Brussels-Central railway station and the mammoth Notre-Dame Van Laken church. Each year, the event makes use of unconventional spaces and for its 2024 edition, Listen will host a rave across three underground tunnels.
The festival offers a genre-skimming lineup of DJ sets, concerts, talks, expos and workshops. Past lineups have hosted heavyweights across the electronic music scene, including Black Mamba, DjRUM and Craig Richards, alongside many local artists.
The festival strives for a 50/50 balance between Belgian and international artists, offering attendees the opportunity to witness Belgium's bubbling music scene while immersing themselves in local culture and its world-renowned architecture.
Listen Festival is one of the finalists for Trippin 50, a cultural calendar featuring the best events around the world. Check out the Trippin 50 hub here.
