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.
The festival takes place in Ossegempark, a large green space in the north of the Brussels next to the famous Atomium monument.
