CORE Festival kicks off the Belgian festival summer in style

About 40.000 festivalgoers enjoyed a sun-drenched second edition in the Osseghem Park in Brussels

Monday, May 29, 2023 - The second edition of CORE Festival has come to an end. The two-day boutique festival in the picturesque Osseghem Park in Brussels went out with a bang after two sunny days: Berlin’s iconic trio Moderat just closed out the impressive Ardo stage. Spread over the two festival days, CORE Festival welcomed around 40.000 visitors during the weekend. Festivalgoers enjoyed a refreshing total experience of music, nature and art with live performances and DJ sets by more than 60 (inter)national artists, as well as a selection of unique art installations and delicious food stands throughout the park.

In the beautiful Osseghem Park, at the foot of the Atomium in Brussels and amidst the raw beauty of nature’s surroundings, about 40.000 festivalgoers were treated to a very captivating and eclectic line-up over the past 2 days. Angèle (with surprise guest Damso), Moderat, alt-J, NxWorries (Anderson .Paak & Knxwledge), Little Simz, Masego, Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul, Channel Tres, Pusha T, Goldband, PinkPantheress, Honey Dijon, Eliza Rose, The Blessed Madonna, Jayda G and many more delivered outstanding live performances and DJ sets.

The outdoor AltVerda stage at the magical Green Theater was transformed into the finest open-air club of Brussels, while the mesmerizing NABO stage – located at the heart of the festival at a height of 8,5 meters – once again turned out to be a true eye-catcher. The line-up of the NABO stage was hosted this year by the renowned Fifty Session from Brussels, while the contemporary art gallery PLUS-ONE Gallery gave the opportunity to five digital artists to showcase their digital artworks on the 360 LED wall surrounding the beautiful stage. Several art and multimedia installations by environmental activist Joanie Lemercier (Brussels), London-based duo Reality is__ and scenographer Fleur Roggeman (Antwerp) stimulated the senses of festivalgoers. Some in a high-tech way, others in a subtly intimate setting or in a more playful way. Overall, the perfect mix of music, nature and art.
