Listen Festival announced the program of Listen Festival Extra, their two-days free event during the festival weekend on Saturday March 31st and Sunday April 1st at the ING Art Center in Brussels. Eye-catcher is the European premiere of of the first large scale physical installation of Radio Soulwax's video series, creating an immersive environment for the audience to dance in, dream in, and explore the endless audio-visual world of Radio Soulwax. There will also be a large record fair, a gear/synth fair, workshops and a soon to be announced exhibition.
The world premiere of the Radio Soulwax Immersive Installation in Houston (Texas) during the Day For Night Festival in December 2017 witnessed enthusiastic reactions from the festival audience, taking the opportunity to (re)discover the beautiful animations and stunning music mixes of Radio Soulwax. It even became a dance floor of it’s own, adding an extra festival stage to the line-up.
Stephen & David Dewaele: “Our only demand for including our Radio Soulwax installation at Listen festival was that they would temporarily change their name to Watch & Listen festival, in order to certify that all people present have the ability to see the animations as well as hear our mixes. Unfortunately our lawyers made the mistake of not signing the contracts in time and now we are stuck with this painful situation where we are allowing the product of years of hard work to potentially be experienced solely by the blind people of Brussels. In order to avoid being called out as discriminators, we have let this one slip but we advise everyone to bring their eyes as well as their ears for this year’s edition of Listen festival.”
Important to notice is that neither Stephen & David Dewaele, Soulwax or 2manydj’s will be physically performing at Listen Festival 2018. They will only be digitally present in Brussels.
Radio Soulwax is a pioneering digital radio Station launched on 4th July 2011. It provides a total of 24 themed albums, each containing a one hour mix of exclusive and uniquely created audio & visual content.
Listen Festival takes place during the Easter weekend from Thursday March 29th until Sunday April 1st in Brussels.
