The Sound of Belgium explores the rich but untold story of Belgian dance music.

From the dance halls with Decap organs to the golden days of Popcorn;

From EBM and New Beat to Belgian House and Techno.

A chronicle of unique popular music, The Sound of Belgium goes in search of the spirit of a nation and the people that danced to it.

 

At the end of the 80s, Belgium was taken by surprise by the New Beat, a once immensely popular, almost surreal type of dance music. Its unexpected but short lived success didn’t only leave a mark on a new generation of musicians in Belgium in the years to come; It’s eclectic mix of sounds and styles actually had its seeds in earlier decades.

Now is the time to tell the story that has been widely ignored by ‘serious’ music critics and the mainstream media in general. This is a documentary that goes in search of the spirit of a nation, by exploring the history of Belgian’s popular music and the people that danced to it.

Timetable:

22:00 screening movie

23:30 afterparty with Jozef Devillé + BTS
