Four evenings of live music on one of Antwerp's most beautiful outdoor locations.

Like any other festival, Contrair were forced to cancel their yearly celebrations in June. Today, they emerge from the quiet summer with a brand new concert series. Between September 17 and 20, four evenings will be filled in with live shows by some of the most compelling names the current electronic music scene has to offer. So far, the organisation has only released a first glimpse of what to expect:

Thursday September 17: Charlotte Adigéry live, more TBA

Friday September 18: Elias Mazian live, Nosedrip, Victor De Roo

Saturday September 19: Bufiman live, DTM Funk

Sunday September 20: Hush Hush presents Sunday Rose live and more TBA

The intriguing venue in this forest location was designed by architect Michiel Helbig as an open air club, serving as the backdrop for Contrair's 2019 edition. Now, the structure will be transformed into a live music venue, including a completely updated sound and light show.

In compliance with the social distancing measures, the maximum capacity is set at 400 people per day. "We came up with several creative ways to create separate spaces for each bubble/group", says promoter Yves Massignani. "In this way, we want to make sure our visitors can enjoy live music in the best - and safest - way possible".
