The idea was first launched in Amsterdam, then came Brussels, and London has since joined the platform, too. To celebrate the buzz of one year of 22tracks in Brussels, there will be a big party, of course. The event will take place on 22 June, naturally, part of the Out Loud! festival, which takes places on the rooftop terrace of the Beursschouwburg.
Out Loud!, which runs through 30 June, features a whole lot of free concerts, movies and parties on one of Brussels' prettiest (and highest) outdoor spaces.
On 22 June, you’ll be dancing to the beats of some of the 22tracks experts: Funky Bompa (tropical), Gratts (house), Nosedrip (moody), Mezzdup and Phonetics (bass), Onda Sonora ( future beats), Lefto (global sounds) and Kong (house). Kong, by the way, is Koen Galle’s DJ name. He’s the man behind the 22tracks Brussels site (pictured) and is delighted to invite us all to this first birthday celebration.
“Our experts keep on enthusiastically uploading new tracks to their genre, the very reason why our group of listeners is growing,” he tells me. “We’re happy to be part of the Out Loud! festival, exactly one year after the Brussels version of 22tracks was launched. We hope to throw a party that will be the talk of the town, every year from now on”.
Tickets to the 22tracks first birthday party are €5 at the door
