TAP Portugal  


The festival calendar is quite extensive and illustrates the cultural richness of a city where the cinema, opera, jazz and pop music have a daily presence in event calendar.

The number of festivals which take place regularly in Brussels are a good way to evaluate the cultural life of this city. In terms of cinema, for example, we can highlight the BIFF (www.bifff.org) a festival dedicated to fantastic cinema or the Film Festival of Brussels (www.brff.be). Music is equally a strong component of the cultural program of the city, with events such as Ars Musica (www.arsmusica.be), the Jazz Marathon (www.brusselsjazzmarathon.be), the Klarafestival (www.klarafestival.be) and Colour Caffe (www.couleurcafe.be) dedicated to world music. The concert agenda is very complete. The Ancienne Belgique (www.abconcerts.be), located in the city center, is stage to new talents, but it also welcomes the most renowed names and many of the reputed and successful artists today, bands such as Noah and The Whale, Milow, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice Cooper, are some of the names that will perform in the coming months. The Flagey (www.flagey.be), the acoustic quality of its rooms is the ideal place to hear classical music, but also hosts jazz concerts and film festivals. The opera and dance are a daily routine of the Royal Monnaie Theatre (www.lamonnaie.be), which has sought to attract more people to these kinds of shows having events like "A Night at the Opera" at low priced tickets. Brussels is also host to classical music and the great orchestras, with frequent performances at Bozar (www.bozar.be), Church of the Minimes (www.minimes.net), that has its own choir and orchestra, or the Conservatory Music (www.conservatoire.be). Of course, museums are a must. From chocolate art, through to music, cars and cartoons, there are places for everyone to visit.
