Brussels at its best @Plazey Festival

With two stages in the Elisabeth park, this year's edition hosts singers such as Raymond van het Groenewoud, Beverly Jo Scott and Daan. But this festival not only offers great music, no, next to that, there will also be open air theatre, dance, visual shows and "culinary delights". Eager to go? Find out more here.

Beach fun @Brussel Bad/Bruxelles les Bains
2nd of July - 22 of August
Yes, it is possible: a beach right in the centre of a capital city. But there is more than just some sand. Culture vultures, sports freaks and people who like to play games including water, will all be very happy to go to Brussel Bad/Bruxelles les Bains. Beware though, because you are not allowed to take a swim... Boat trips on the other hand, you are most welcome to take! More information.
