Couleur Café is the largest urban and reggae festival in Belgium. Hip-hop, soul, funk, reggae, dub, ska and latin music are all represented by household names and newcomers alike, across three days and three stages at Brussels' Tour & Taxis centre.

Well into its third decade of contemporary carnivals, Couleur Café is known for its great food and even better bars – the famous Mamafoufou has been joined by loads more bar/club venues that get every bit as pumping as the stages themselves.

Artists of the calibre of Faithless, Jimmy Cliff, Wu-Tang Clan and Busta Rhymes have all been part of the fun over the last few years, and it doesn't seem like Couleur Café will be letting up any time soon.

Tour & Taxis is a confusingly named, but culturally vibrant exhibition and multimedia centre in Brussels. A large warehouse is complimented by a large outdoor space, accommodating multiple stages and plenty of extra-curricular sights.


Address

Tour & Taxis, Rue Picard 3, Brussels, 1000, Belgium

FAQs

BY PLANE: If you're flying into Brussels, you can take a SNCB Line Interregio train into Bruxelles-Nord and walk to the festival from here.

BY TRAIN: Brussels is accessible via the Eurostar from the UK and France, as well as other train networks from other parts of Europe. If you're arriving into Gare de Bruxelles-Midi, simply take an SNCB train to Bruxelles-Nord and walk to the festival. Similarly, from Gare de Bruxelles-Central, take the same train onto Bruxelles-Nord.

Children under 10 are allowed to attend for free with an adult; they must fill out an identification card with their name and their parents' phone number at the festival gate. Bear in mind that whilst children are allowed, there is no nursery and it's recommended that pushchairs aren't brought on site.
