Belgium promotes its music this week, in the north and the south

From today until Sunday, Belgian music will be again in the spotlight during the 'Belgian Music Week' with live sessions, interviews, free concert tickets and musical guests. This is the third edition and this time there are no Covid-19 restrictions, which prevented gatherings in concert halls. Dutch and French-speaking Belgians cooperate in this promotion week.

Some industry players, like N9 in Eeklo, open their doors exceptionally, while labels like Universal or MayWay Records offer discounts on Belgian discs. The Inside Jazz management office is distributing concert tickets.

Several Belgian channels, VRT, Willy, Nostalgie, NRJ, Q-Downtown, Ment TV and Bruzz, will focus their programmes on Belgian music. 

On radio One, presenter Jeroen Meus is visited every day by a musical guest. The Canvas channel broadcasts a Belpop daily. The VRT MAX website offers numerous archival footage from documentaries, live shows or interviews supplemented with new footage. Two new series are also being launched: the fiction series 'De Studio's' and 'Behind the Artist' with behind-the-scenes footage.

Radio station Stubru will be in Sint-Niklaas for a whole week, while the local music scene will be highlighted in Ghent. The city of Kortrijk brings together artists and organizers in a large "Pop Council" to think about local music policy.

For the first time, the project also lives beyond language borders, says VI.BE, the support centre for Belgian artists and the music sector that co-organizes this music week. There is a collaboration between Conseil de la Musique and Court-Circuit with the RTBF channel and all activities can be found at
