At FiftyFifty Lab, you're not buying a ticket for a big headliner, you're buying trust. Trust that you may discover the next big thing !

On the 7th and 8th of November, FiftyFifty Lab will take place at 5 key locations in Brussels (Ancienne Belgique, La Madeleine, Bonnefooi, Archiduc and C12). With just one unique wristband, the participants will be able to go from location to location discovering the bands of tomorrow. To build this 100% newcomers lineup, FiftyFifty Lab invited 20 of the finest festivals to create the lineup together. So be prepared to discover Primavera, Dour, or Dekmantel's musical crushes !

What is the real authenticity behind today's programming for festivals? Do we mainly act on commercial behalf or do we favor our musical crushes? How do we keep a healthy balance between these two seemly inevitable parameters? In our world flooded by mass informations and propositions, what we all want now is curated and tailored suggestions.

FiftyFifty Lab is the result of the collaboration between the monthly showcase event FiftyFifty Session and creative agency KuratedBy.
