The 2021 edition of the festival will take place at Ribaucourt Castle on August 13-15.

When we recently interviewed the Paradise City team, it became clear that not hosting a full-blown festival wasn’t an option. As their series of Paradise Down by the Lake events throughout July are almost sold out, the main event in August will be the long-awaited climax after a very frustrating year. But first things first: the full line-up has just been announced. And yes: it looks just as tasty as we’ve expected.

“For us, it was unthinkable that Paradise City would not be part of the post-COVID celebration”, explains co-promoter Gilles De Decker. “But what’s more, this edition will be our best one yet. After all, we’ve been working on this event for such a long time now. There will be four stages, each with new adventurous designs, a reworked terrain layout, a packed line-up combining international stars and local talent, but above all, we will double down on our high sustainability ambitions. Expect maximum dancefloor energy and even more goosebumps moments than any edition we’ve ever hosted before”.
