Always wanted to see the Northern Lights? BOZAR is bringing them to Brussels during this festival that celebrates the diversity, contrasts and cultures of the Nordic region, while stubbornly looking beyond clichés.

With a pop-up design shop and an ice-cold bar, with a proper fiddlers meeting, a hefty dose of hygge and first and foremost, a great deal of music.

Through these concerts, films and talks, you will discover a world of innovation, tradition, whimsy… and even tango!

  • When Art Deco meets Nordic design


    From the 10th till the 20th of October, Victor Horta’s flagship of Art Deco will trade its usual flags for those of the Nordic Countries. The Nordic Festival will bring music, cinema, dance… and much more to the Centre for Fine Arts. Amidst the bustle of the festival, you may feel the urge to sit back and relax at the CPHAGEN ‘pop-up’ in the Horta Hall. Shop owner and native Dane living in Brussels, Thomas Petersen, tells us about the spirit of his Nordic concept store(s) in Ixelles and Saint-Gilles.
