New: CORE Festival on 27 & 28 May in Brussels!

A new two-day festival in the capital of Europe created by Tomorrowland & Rock Werchter who join forces in an unprecedented effort! Please meet CORE Festival – a brand-new two-day boutique festival in the beautiful Osseghem Park in Brussels. CORE Festival wants to awaken all senses with a unique total experience where nature, live music and art meet. The first edition of CORE Festival takes place on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 May. CORE Festival will reveal its full line-up and art installations program soon.

The new CORE Festival will feature a very eclectic line-up across 4 different stages spread in the Osseghem Park from noon until around midnight. Wielding a wide array of various genres and niches, the festival will be breaking the boundaries between quality indie, hip hop, electronica, hyper pop and alternative dance, offering moments of continuous discoveries from upcoming talents and international heroes. CORE Festival will offer festivalgoers more than just the music experience, immersing them within the raw beauty of nature’s surroundings. An ensemble of impressive and unique art, sound and light installations that blend harmoniously will awake all senses, complemented by an exquisite food experience. 

The organizations of Tomorrowland & Rock Werchter – two of the world’s most renowned and multi-award-winning festivals, both having received various highly acclaimed international awards and nominations – are joining forces in an exceptional effort to create a completely new festival in Brussels, the vibrant capital of Europe. Seeing festival organizations of this magnitude coming together and sharing the same ambition is unprecedented, both uniting for an original and refreshing festival in an intimate setting in Brussels’ beautiful nature, aiming to attract 25.000 visitors per day, both Belgian and international festivalgoers.

The Osseghem Park – a beautiful and picturesque nature area in Brussels, located at the foot of the famous Atomium on the Heysel Plateau – will be home to the new festival. The organizers have consciously opted to bring the CORE Festival to the edge of town, while Brussels is home to a wide range of hotels and accommodation options, catering to a vast array of budgets.

CORE Festival will reveal its full line-up soon. Pre-registrations are now open via corefestival.com. Presale starts on 23 February at 11:00 CET, general ticket sales open on 24 February via corefestival.com.
