Since its inaugural edition in 2016, Listen is Brussels’ first urban music festival dedicated to alternative electronic music. Our festival was born out of a common desire: drive local talent to the next level and support the development of a local alternative music scene.
Over the past couple of years our festival has evolved into a 5 day take-over of the city of Brussels with DJ-sets, concerts, talks, workshops, expo and more in various unique locations throughout the Belgian capital. The musical scope has also broadened quite a bit over the years. Next to the main electronic genres like House and Techno that were present from the very beginning, Listen now also incorporates a much broader alternative sound with genres like Hyperpop, Drum’n’bass, Amapiano and Hip Hop.
The link to the city of Brussels and its local music scene has been very important from the early days of Listen. As a festival we aim to create and nourish a platform, within the city of Brussels, with an international reach to showcase local talent and place them among the most exciting international acts in the industry.
