CORE Festival reveals first names for second edition in Brussels on 27 & 28 May
CORE Festival has unveiled some of the eclectic musicians taking to its five stages in Osseghem Park, Brussels, on 27 and 28 May.
Among the home-grown and international artists scheduled to perform are British indie-rock band alt-J, Belgian singer-songwriter Angèle and US DJ and musician The Blessed Madonna. Said alt-J: "Can’t wait to return to Belgium to play for our amazing fans there and eat our body weight in frikandels."
The two-day boutique extravaganza, a collaboration between Tomorrowland and Rock Werchter, treats festivalgoers to a diverse programme of pop, indie, live electronic music, hip hop and alternative dance.
Lined-up for Saturday 27 May are Angèle, NxWorries (Anderson.Paak & Knxwledge), Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul, The Blessed Madonna, Romy, HAAi and DOMi & JD Beck. Meanwhile, alt-J, Denis Sulta, Goldband, Honey Dijon, KOKOROKO and Unknown Mortal Orchestra are confirmed for Sunday May 28. More artists will be announced soon.
The successful first edition attracted some 40,000 visitors in May 2022. Its popularity lay in the immerse experience it offers, combining music, nature and art in a wooded park setting at the foot of the Atomium.
The presale starts on 16 December at 11.00, general sale on 19 December at 15.00. A day ticket is available from €77 (including service fee and mobility contribution), a weekend ticket from €138 (including service fee and mobility contribution).
