TakeOFF UUR KULTUUR 2023
A dazzling evening of concerts, performances and installations at arts centre STUK
KU Leuven Culture kicks of the cultural year with a dazzling festival night in STUK. You decide where to go - but don't miss the free apero! Bombataz* brings an exclusive try-out of their new album release show. In the mood for dance? Then there's the performance by Arco Renz & Danielle Allouma, who spins around for an hour straight. Don't miss the funny sound art by Japanese Asuna - with candy for instruments! Take a break in between with British artist and filmmaker Ben Rivers, or go on a First Date in STUKCafé! We go out with a bang with the metal gabber rave of KLAKMATRAK (with Stake's Brent Vanneste). Ready for takeoff?
* Bombataz replaces Tsar B, who had to cancel last-minute due to health issues - she lost her voice.
