Couleur Café is without doubt one of the high spots of the Brussels musical calendar (alongside the Jazz Marathon that comes up in May each year) and new names are regularly being announced for the event taking place at Tour & Taxis during the long weekend (beginning Friday) of 29-30 June and 1 July.
Presales have already begun (buy and print your tickets in just two clicks on the website) and are also available now in designated ticket outlets (there’s a complete list of these on the website, too).
Booking fees apply but the face value of the tickets are as follows - one-day ticket pre-booked, €36; one-day ticket at the door, €44, a Combi three-day ticket online at €79 and a Combi three-day ticket plus
camping for €95.
The latter are only available online, are limited in numbers, and are intended for over 16-year-olds who are travelling to the festival from outside Brussels. As it currently stands, the line-up looks like this for Friday 29 June:
Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
Collie Buddz & New Kingston
Psy4 de la Rime
Boban & Marko Markovic Orchestra
On Saturday 30 June music fans will be able to see and hear:
De La Soul
Le Peuple de l’Herbe
Asham meets Collieman
And on Sunday 1 July, the list of acts currently looks like this:
Public Enemy (pictured above)
Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club feat. Omara Portuondo
The Peas Project
More names will be announced soon for this not-to-be-missed event.
