By Marnix de Witte Autumn Falls is organised by the European booking agency and Benelux promoter Toutpartout. It started as a three-day festival in 2010 and was extended to a six-days in 2011. Today, this contemporary music journey lasts a whole week. Autumn Falls is a festival of discovery.
The bands get the opportunity to convince an audience that is open-minded to new music, and generally unaware of what they will listen to. Surprises are plenty; every year bands impress and shortly afterwards break through…think about Metronomy, Beach House, Low, Pinback and SX.

Except for the music, Autumn Falls is the perfect opportunity to discover the best music venues across Brussels. The festival takes place in the AB, Botanique, Atelier 210, VK, Magasin 4, Maison des Musiques and Madame Moustache. All diverse and characteristic venues.
