BOZAR and Arty Farty are joining forces to present the second Brussels edition of the festival Nuits sonores from 27 to 30 September 2018. ‘Nuits sonores Brussels’ is taking over from the BOZAR Electronic Arts Festival, which has federated in six editions a very diverse public of electronic music lovers.

Thus, BOZAR continues to offer a panorama of global and cross-disciplinary creativity.

Nuits sonores is a big name on the international festival scene, with, as its basis, a successful festival in Lyon. BOZAR and Arty Farty are working together on a programmation of quality music with a focus on electronic music and an exhibition component that each time focuses on a specific aspect of the digital arts. With the Circuit, Nuits sonores Brussels gets to collaborate with a variety of Brussels platforms so that the public can enjoy a specially adapted programme in unique locations across the capital. A European Lab will take place as well. The European Lab organises conferences in an attempt to get young people involved in discussions about the future of Europe, in the same vein as BOZAR’s debate programme Agora.

In the future BOZAR will play a pioneering role in the domain of avant-garde electronic music. Next to Nuits sonores Brussels, the BOZAR Electronic Series is will be organised 4 times a year. During these intimate concerts the latest electronic, contemporary and experimental music will be showcased. BOZAR Night will take place twice a year (10.11 & 30.04).

BOZAR and Arty Farty will present the Nuits sonores Brussels programme during a press conference in the Center for Fine Arts on 7 June 2018.
