30 years of global rhythms

Couleur Café is a diverse and vibrant music festival in Brussels, Belgium. Early each summer, the festival invites an eclectic lineup of performers from across the world, celebrating a wide-ranging selection of global rhythms.

With a strong focus on music of African and Caribbean origin, the sonic offerings range from traditional sounds of reggae and Afrobeat to modern funk, soul, jazz, hip hop and RnB. 

A huge part of the festival's appeal also comes from the colour, creativity and carnival atmosphere that pervades proceedings in the Belgian capital, with drum groups, dancers, flamboyant fancy dress and a no shortage of delicious food and drink.
