SPACE IS THE PLACE FESTIVAL @ DE BRAKKE GROND
An evening with experimental, groundbreaking musicians from the flourishing Flemish and Amsterdam improvisation scenes. Everything is covered, from intimate instrumental trance-like solos to rousing ensemble playing and electronic soundscapes & beats. The legendary DJ Marcelle closes the evening.
Paard. is one of the most talked-about acts on the Ghent live circuit at the moment, whose experimental music merrily swings back and forth between eclectic hip-hop grooves and freestyle funk with some unexpected stops along the way.
