The most striking party on the line-up will take place this Saturday at Brussels Central train station. The concert is already sold out but partygoers will soon be able to let loose on the dance records of DJs Zouzizabe, Lefto and Palms Trax.

Equally unique will be the performances of Malibu in the Église Notre-Dame church of Laeken or the club night of the 'Not Your Techno' collective in L'Imprimerie (the former printing office of the National Bank). Three days of parties will also take place at the closed-off train and metro station Brussel Congrès. The week will also be punctuated by more intimate events.

Listen Festival draws a lot of inspiration from the Brussels music scene, as Flagey, Botanique, Ancienne Belgique, Pilar and Vaartkapoen are among the curators of the events and are supporting the promotion of local artists. The festival's main goal remains to give the Brussels scene an international platform.

Last year's edition attracted some 20,000 people, more than 60% from outside Brussels. The organisers hope those figures will increase in the 2023 edition.

The festival is aiming for a spectacular closure with a 27-hour party at the industrial site of Buda BXL along the canal. The party will start on 1 April at 23:00 and end on 3 April at 02:00.
