In the context of the general crisis in the cultural sector, the Bru-X-elles Festival has been postponed for financial reasons and due to the exhaustion of the organisational team. The dates of 22 and 23 September are cancelled.

It is with great regret that we announce the postponement of the Bru-X-elles Festival 2022 to a later date. An international economic crisis, a lack of expected funding and unforeseen circumstances as well as the exhaustion of the team are at the origin of this difficult decision. We therefore prefer to postpone the festival to a date when the financial and mental capacity of the teams will allow the event to take place. This decision has been taken with the project leaders, Beats N Roots asbl with VK.

People who have already booked their tickets will be fully refunded.
We are in contact with all the artists and partners to find solutions in a transparent way and as soon as possible.

We would like to thank all the people who have been involved in bringing the festival to life, for their trust and kindness in this difficult situation.

The Bru·X·elles Festival is an event made by and for FINTA* people.

*FINTA = Fæmme, Intersex, Non-binary, Trans, Agender, …

In the heart of Brussels, it will be held on September 22 and 23, 2022.
For its first edition, a launch party will also take place on June 17th.

This new feminist and eco-responsible 
concept is an initiative of Beats'n'Roots developped in collaboration with Vaartkapoen (VK)

Its main objective is to highlight FINTA* people in the music sector. Too often forgotten or set aside, the goal is to give them more visibility.


The festival focuses primarily on professionals in the music sector

who share our values and who are interested in exploring them.

Four values guide the entire operation of the festival,

all based in the music sector :


- Giving visibility to FINTA* people

- Raising awareness on gender-based violence

- Raising awareness on eco-responsibility

- Highlighting collaborations between the language communities 

*FINTA = Fæmme, Intersex, Non-binary, Trans, Agender, …


More than just an event, it is a way to raise awareness among the public and the music sector about these inequalities and this lack of visibility that some artists face on a daily basis.


Our launch party in June will host the announcement of the results of the selection of artists for the September showcases and the full festival line-up. This will be followed by a series of concerts and DJ sets by local and international artists.


This event will be a part of the
Fete de la musique”, a high point for the music sector.


It will be an opportunity to draw the attention of the sector on the lack of FINTA* people on and off stage, and to promote
the festival as a way of overcoming this situation. 

*FINTA = Fæmme, Intersex, Non-binary, Trans, Agender, …
