HORST Arts and Music Festival in Belgium

HORST Arts and Music Festival in Belgium


August 21, 2017

Art and music shape our environment, they define the present time and influence the next generation. HORST is a fusion of that shared vision, it cultivates our foundation, it’s where our heart lies. HORST champions a vanguard of talented individuals and collectives from Belgium and beyond.

HORST is a festival, an exhibition and a series of inspiring talks. What can be more bucolic than an early September inter-disciplinary festival in the courtyard of a Belgian castle?

The fourth edition of HORST Arts&Music festival, taking place in a 15th century moated castle in the green Hageland hills, brings together site specific art and cutting-edge electronic music of the sunny variety. There’s boogie and soul by rising Canadian star Jayda G, solar house by Shanti Celeste, on-point disco from Motor City Drum Ensemble, as well as adventurously eclectic sets by Call Super, Young Marco and Kornel Kovacs. But leave it to lesser-known names such as Amsterdam’s Tako or Brussels’ excellent DJ soFa to bring the heat with delightful Balearic obscurities.

We also host a yearly exhibition of in-situ visual art in the public space surrounding the Horst castle, curated by Gijs Van Vaerenbergh. Named SPACES & PLACES, this edition focuses on creating various shared spaces on the castle grounds. Expect a series of temporary and permanent interventions that highlight existing elements and reframe the current castle's surroundings
