It is unprecedented to see festival organizations of this size come together and share the same vision, aiming to attract 25.000 visitors per day, both Belgian and international festivalgoers, to an original and refreshing festival in an intimate setting in Brussels’ beautiful nature.

The new festival will be held in Osseghem Park, a beautiful and picturesque nature area in Brussels located at the foot of the famous Atomium on the Heysel Plateau. 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.

We are very proud that Tomorrowland and Rock Werchter, two of the most important players in the world of music, are coming to Brussels with this new concept. A total experience of music, art and nature. Brussels celebrates and thus enables the event, cultural and hotel industry to breathe again. – Philippe Close, mayor of the city of Brussels
