Expanding our moral imagination
Since 2002, more than 1000 artists have taken part in the Brussels Summer Festival, ten days of music from local and international artists in the heart of the city. This year's line-up includes performances from Patti Smith, Catfish, Mumbai Silence, Rey Cabrera, Clare Louise, Guilt Monkey, Leaf House and Eddie & the Hot Rods, plus many more. Concerts will be held in three locations: Place des Palais, Mont des Arts and Magic Mirrors (Place des Musées). Presale tickets are available through 7 August, or tickets can be purchased at the door. A 10-day pass can be purchased during presale for €50, plus ticketing fees; one-day and two-day passes are available as well. Discounted access to select museums and events is extended to those who purchase a 10-day pass, thanks to partnerships with a number of cultural institutions throughout the city. More information about the Brussels Summer Festival 2014 can be found at www.bsf.be.
