Muziekpublique : the heart of folk and world music and traditional dance in Brussels

The not-for-profit foundation Muziekpublique keeps music and dance traditions alive and kicking in Brussels through an ambitious programme of concerts, courses, and projects.

We bring artists and members of the public together in a spirit of enjoyment, discovery and respect for cultural diversity.

A year-round concert programme, featuring Belgian and international artists, forms the core of the foundation’s activities. From the contemplative to the madly festive, concerts take place indoors and outdoors, around the city and throughout the year.

Muziekpublique members receive many benefits including a substantial discount on ticket prices. By becoming a member you can also access a remarkable programme of courses, where you can learn authentic folk dances from many corners of Europe, and how to play a wide range of traditional European, African and oriental instruments.

Muziekpublique is the musical home of local performers including members of A Contrabanda, Mundomix, Ialma, and the Nouvelle harmonie d’accordéon de Bruxelles.

Through the Musiques Cachées (hidden music) project, Muziekpublique provides artistic, technical and publicity support to six little-known groups in the city of Brussels.

We collaborate with cultural communities and festivals including the Fête de L’Iris and the Festival d’Art Huy, and with broadcasters such as the RTBF world music show Le Monde est un village.

We are often looking for committed volunteers to help us realise our goals. Contact valerie@muziekpublique.be or drop by our offices at Molière, Galerie de la Porte de Namur/Naamsepoortgalerij, Bolwerksquare 3 Square du Bastion, 1050 Brussels to find out more. Phone : ++ 32 2 217 26 00.
