The next chapter of Horst includes a cutting-edge Lab, an Exhibition with new in-situ artwork and a three-day Festival.
From 2014 to 2018, the festival took place on the Castle grounds in Holsbeek and now moves to ASIAT – a former military site with two cooling towers as a backdrop and part of Vilvoorde, a suburb north of Brussels. The new space comprises of over twenty warehouses. For the musical programming, the new site will be tested by the likes of Objekt, Call Super, Deena Abdelwahed, DJ Bus Replacement Service, Sherelle, Mama Snake, Lauren Hansom, Joy Orbison, Eris Drew and Identified Patient among others. There’s also a selection of local talent including Gay Haze DJ’s, Hill Men, Hantrax, Bjeor, Aroh, AliA, DTM Funk, Lawrence Le Doux, Victor De Ooo, Walrus and Weird Dust.
The exhibition section of Horst titled Fallen Empires And Refound Desires will be open to the public from mid-July to September with a focus on cross-disciplinary practices. In addition to this, the also newly-launched Lab will see Horst partner with KU Leuven, Europe’s most innovative university. The first series of 4 Labs will be open to over 75 international young creatives from all backgrounds – the Music Lab, the Art Lab, the Design Lab and the Architecture Lab – taking place in the first two weeks of July. All details, coaches and registrations will be announced early-May.
