We've had to miss you for such a long time, but after months without performances, packed capacity venues and cosy STUKcafé nights, there is a bit of hope - finally. From 8 May onwards, we start re-opening some doors again, of course with respect to the government protocols and restrictions linked to the COVID virus.
In May, we will have our first concerts and performances in months - with limited capacity and in open air, on STUK's lovely Courtyard. The exhibitions continue, such as the Showcase Emerging Sound. And in June, there is the postponed festival Artefact : Wired for Empathy, our annual festival with a free ehhibition, concerts, performance, lectures and more.
Room rents and the use of rehearsal pavilions won't return until August. Behind the scenes, our artistic residencies continue - following the COVID protocols, of course - in order to support our artists where we can. And we keep our fingers crossed that we can welcome you all back in full force next season, starting with STUK START on September 16 and 17.
In the meantime, more than ever: stay safe, and take care.

STUKcard / Culture Card
BUY YOUR STUK CARD ONLINE
The STUKcard gives you a discount on almost every event that is organized by STUK. It costs only €8, so it's paid back after about 2 performances. The STUKcard is valid for one year, it is personal (and has to be shown in order to get a discount). In order to benefit from the reduced price your STUK membership card has to be valid at the time of payment.
When registering, students from the KU Leuven, UC Leuven-Limburg and Luca School of Arts Campus Lemmens can buy a Culture Card, which gives you the same reduction as the STUK membership card. Both STUK card holders and Culture Card holders can buy tickets online at the reduced price.
The presale price is only valid for concerts until 18:00 on the day of the concert.
Just like previous seasons, STUK offers a reduction for minors. That way, STUK wants to give culture-loving scholars easier access to STUK. Just show your ID card at STUK Reception, and you’ll get tickets at reduction price.
Dubbeldans is a collaboration between STUK and 30CC. Check the starting time and venue.
SECTOR PASS OKO
On showing your oKo season pass oKo 18-19, you get your tickets at reduction price.
UiTPAS & CULTURE VOUCHERS
STUK accepts the UiTPAS for people with a special status to purchase dance and concert tickets. STUK also accepts culture vouchers of Sodexho and Edenred.
Tickets shall only be reimbursed when a performance is cancelled. Tickets can be exchanged, but only for those of the same performance at another date. Please bring the tickets to be exchanged if you wish to use this option.
RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
According to the Belgian law, the right of withdrawal does not apply to ticket purchases for cultural activities.
This season, STUK introduces two types of waiting lists for performances at STUK.
- Throughout the season, tickets can become available for sold out performances. You can take place on the waiting list for these performances via the web page of the performance (www.stuk.be). As soon as tickets become available, you’ll be the first to know.
- If you couldn't get a ticket via the online waiting list, you could always try the second waiting list on the evening itself. On the evening of the performance, we fill the empty seats (e.g. of people who don't show up) with ‘laissez-passers’ — last-minute tickets sold at reduction price. Starting at 19:00 you can drop by STUK Box Office or call 016320320 and put your name on the list. Ten minutes before the start of the performance, we will start selling the ‘laissez passers’, in order of registration on the list. We cannot guarantee you a ticket, but it is definitely worth the try.
COME IN TIME
As a rule performances start punctually at the time stated on the ticket. Unfortunately latecomers will not be admitted to the venue once the performance has started - to ensure the best experience for audience and artists, our performances are held with closed doors. Tickets that have been sold but were not used shall not be reimbursed.
Audience address data: your address data are recorded in our directory. This can be used by STUK's structural sponsors. If you would rather not, you can always let us know. You have the right to see and correct your data in accordance with the law on privacy of 9/12/1992.
