Belgian Dub Community Festival est un festival bruxellois entièrement dédié à la culture Soundsystem!
Forte de son expérience de 4 ans dans l’organisation de soirées Dub à l’Atelier 210 et ailleurs, la team Belgian Dub Community met cette année les petits plats dans les grands pour proposer aux fans un festival de deux jours, en indoor, en plein coeur de la capitale.
Au programme, une première soirée dédiée aux producteurs qui viendront nous présenter le meilleur de leur travail sur le mur du Roots Corner.
S’enchaînera ensuite une journée consacrée pleinement aux soundmen pendant laquelle nous accueillerons deux poids lourds de la scène internationale : Masego Soundsystem (NL) et Agobun Soundsystem (FR). The Roots Corner Soundsystem sera évidement présent pour compléter le trio! Trois murs dans l’arène pour faire trembler la ville!
Pour enrober tout ça, le massive aura a sa disposition des stands proposant nourriture, vinyles, vêtements… Une zone Chillout pour se reposer les tympans et, bien sûr, le légendaire bar de l’Atelier 210.
Les préventes sont fortement conseillées, particulièrement pour les tickets combi qui ne seront pas disponible sur place. La BDC team s’est coupée en quatre pour vous proposer la toute première édition de cet événement à un prix abordable, nous donnons donc rendez-vous à tous les Rootsmen, Bass Lovers et Stepperaddicts ces 22 et 23 juin pour un weekend qui s’annonce épique!
