Action Bronson, Caribou, Jamie xx & more for Inaugural Core Festival

The new CORE Festival will immerse visitors within the raw beauty of nature’s surroundings, featuring a very eclectic line-up of various genres and niches across 4 different stages spread in the Osseghem Park from noon until 01:00.

Hip hop, R&B and soul will take over the outdoor Ardo with CELESTE, ACTION BRONSON, EZRA COLLECTIVE and SYLVIE KREUSCH, among others. The Ardo always ends with a party. On Friday, PAUL KALKBRENNER will close out the festival, on Saturday it’s up to JAMIE XX.

Festivalgoers will be able to enjoy a bunch of live electronica acts in the indoor Endoma, including CARIBOU, FATIMA YAMAHA, MEUTE, MURA MASA, SOHN and THE BLAZE. At the outdoor Altverda, the festival fully focusses on alternative dance with eye-catchers such as the Russian techno queen NINA KRAVIZ, the British dj & producer ROSS FROM FRIENDS and Belgian artist with Italian roots CELLINI. Fans of house music will find a home at the intimate Orlo with AGORIA, BIBI SECK, CC:DISCO!, DJ HARVEY, HORSE MEAT DISCO and SOFIA KOURTESIS among others.

CORE Festival wants to awaken all senses with a unique total experience where nature, live music and art meet, offering festivalgoers an ensemble of impressive and unique art, sound and light installations that blend harmoniously. The organisations of Tomorrowland & Rock Werchter – two of the world’s most renowned and multi-award-winning festivals, both having received various highly acclaimed international awards and nominations – are joining forces in an exceptional effort to create a completely new, original and refreshing festival in an intimate setting in Brussels’ beautiful nature, aiming to attract 25,000 visitors per day, both Belgian and international festivalgoers.

The Osseghem Park – a beautiful and picturesque nature area in Brussels, located at the foot of the famous Atomium on the Heysel Plateau – will be home to the new festival. The organisers have consciously opted to bring the CORE Festival to the edge of town, while Brussels is home to a wide range of hotels and accommodation options, catering to a vast array of budgets.

CORE Festival takes place on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th May in the beautiful Osseghem Park in Brussels, the vibrant capital of Europe.
