CONCERT: Scheut n’ sound

La Chiva Gantiva @ Scheut ‘n Sound

The Escale du Nord cultural centre is proud to launch the new season with a memorable, free concert day! With eight concerts on two stages, there’ll be something for everyone. In the afternoon, the emphasis is on African, South American, funk and soul rhythms, and in the evening electronic music takes centre stage. The Belgo-Colombian group La Chiva Gantiva, for one, guarantees a thrilling mix of Afro-Colombian rhythms, rap and jazz rock. Glauque, on the other hand, doesn't shy away from completely rewriting the codes of French chanson and seamlessly mixes in rap and electro.

GUIDED TOUR: Brussels' most impressive vertical urban farm

MicroFlavours began as a student project and has rapidly grown into a sustainable, environmentally friendly vertical urban farm! Situated as close as possible to the consumer (in the cellars of the former Belle-Vue brewery along the canal), the short chain and the techniques used guarantee economical and efficient cultivation. With this method, large quantities can be produced in a small area by using the height, and the unique hydroponic installation conserves up to 70% of the required water! Everything is delivered by bike. The micro-vegetables (young sprouts) are incredibly healthy! It’s high time you discovered it.

Until 31 December
