ABOUT

WECANDANCE

WECANDANCE stands for quality underground music divided over 4 stages providing you a supreme line-up with local as well as international talent.

To top it all off, our partners The Jane and Pure C will see through that you will be drenched into the WECANDANCE atmosphere by letting you enjoy some celestial sounds while wandering on the beach.

WECANDANCE 2015

 

WECANDRESS

WECANDANCE is absolutely thrilled with this year's main festival theme: SPACE!

In terms of festival decoration, you can expect a futuristic freshness of raw constructions and monochrome simplicity. On the fashion department, think sheer materials, sleek metal, see-through plastic with splashes of eye-blinding white and silver. A space suit may just be a little too hot for summer, but we're sure your inner-galactic mind can handle a few fashionable eccentricities, so go ahead!

It's time for that retro-futuristic finesse with a contemporary touch.

WECANDRESS

WECANTASTE

Last year's Food Market proved to be a huge success where WECANDANCE collaborated with fifteen food partners, each with their own signature WCD dish. This year won't be any different. We hold strong to variety and quality, so don't worry about liquid astronaut food. We realise any mission requires a full stomach so we'll make sure you'll have food options enough to embark on that space odyssey.

Needless to say, we'd like to avoid space-beach dehydration so we made sure there will be more beverage points on site that will get you fuelled up and ready to go.

WECANTASTE

For those who opt for that little extra, we are delighted to welcome The Jane where the lucky few can savour a tastebud-tingling meal. For this occasion Sergio Herman and Nick Bril will close the doors of their beloved The Jane in Antwerp and move their entire staff to WECANDANCE for two days just to come and cook for you.

 

KEEP THE BEACH CLEAN

Last year we had a great and especially clean edition thanks to you all! Some of you may also remember our bespoke WECANDANCE cups with nothing but positive messages. We collaborated with the Surfrider Foundation Europe to protect and enjoy the Belgian coast. They made it possible to donate your used drinking cup and show some support.

We also teamed up with CO2LOGIC last year to reduce our ecological footprint by making an effort for a clean environment and by compensating the remaining climate impact. This year we can proudly say that we are a CO2 Neutral Festival thanks to this partnership.

ROM- Nachtvogels

On Saturday the Container Stage will be hosted by Nächtvøgels x Roots of Minimal, joining forces for the very first time. Expect a musical journey with sunny lightweight house and deeper techno down the road, making stops at planet Giegling and Hivern Discs, with a grand finale into the Life & Death universe.

Labyrinth

Labyrinth will be hosting the Container Stage on the second day, continuing with the story brought to you by Nächtvøgels x Roots of Minimal. This club that started off in Antwerp in 2014 and moved to Hasselt in 2016 became a place for quality house and techno with a focus on the more underground subcultures moving between music, art and entertainment.

Bloody Louis

Bloody Louis will be yet again providing that urban sound on the beach of Zeebrugge for two days. This leading Brussels-based club is always looking for that new, enticing sound going from oldskool hip hop to a more electronic vibe. Saturday August 13th, you will be served an all-Belgian menu while Sunday will cross borders.

Kitschclub - Magic

We are definitely happy to welcome back Kitsch Club x Magic that will be hosting for two days. This perfect marriage produces an eclectic dance sound for all to enjoy. While Kitsch Club likes to take you back to the roots of La Discoteca and house, Magic likes to entertain a fun-loving, devil-may-care crowd with an unmistakably fashion-forward profile, perfect for WECANDANCE.

Schweppes

The artists of tomorrow will be performing at Villa Schweppes that partners up with a Belgian festival for the first time. Just like their beverage brand, they reach those who want a way out of the ordinary and look for new experiences. This curator will focus on a more downtempo electronic genre with live performances and relaxing vibes during the day, working up to the perfect climax at the end of the night.

WECANDRESS


WECANDANCE is undeniably linked to apparel, which ensures a cool but more feminine touch. With that asset, we aim to continue a conversation that started at the foundation of this premium boutique festival. To give it that something extra, WECANDANCE drowns itself in Space for the summer bringing joy to those who love to compose their outfit with the right pieces and accessories. In that way the festival wants to create a scene that lives not only within the festival walls.

WCD16: wecandress

WECANDANCE searches for creative collabs with the right brands and Belgian designers to create #WCD16 limited edition items. Go and follow our Pinterest to spark that inspiration.

WECANDANCE is delighted to present you our fashion partners. We have some of the finest Belgian fashion brands participating that each created a unique piece for this year’s edition.

WECANTASTE

WECANTASTE

WECANDANCE approaches food on a different level. The Food Market is an opportunity to eat on site, but also an asset to attract early visitors and make them stay longer while pampering their taste buds. Moreover, it is a conversation maker for all our beloved social media users. Food is a big part of the #WCD16 experience where foodies come together for a community celebration.

WCD16: wecandress image

WECANDANCE always holds strong to quality and variety. Visitors will be able to choose from a wide and international range of signature dishes developed by partners, inspired by this year?s theme. For that, we carefully choose our partnerships to build a long-term relationship with premium restaurants and chefs.

WECANDANCE also likes to contribute to keep that ecological footprint as small as possible. Using organic products and disposable tableware brings us one step closer to that goal.

WECANDANCE would like to present you our fifteen food partners that will be cooking for you at the WCD16 Food Market! They all created their own WCD16-dish inspired by this year’s theme.

WCD16 Food Partners

THE JANE

We are delighted to welcome The Jane where the lucky few can savour a tastebud-tingling meal. For this occasion Sergio Herman and Nick Bril will close their doors in Antwerp and move their entire staff to WECANDANCE for two days just to come and cook for you. Afterwards, Pure C will be providing spacey cocktails. 

To top it all off, both The Jane and Pure C will see through that you will be drenched into the WECANDANCE atmosphere by letting you enjoy some celestial sounds while wandering on the beach.

EXPERIENCE

DECORATION AND ART

WECANDANCE wants to tell a story, a story which you can be part of. We tend to create a unique setting in which we invite you to come and discover. Blend into the surroundings and undergo a makeover to enjoy a whole new experience.

We attach great importance to the setting, each year transformed into a different theme. This year has taken a turn towards the intergalactic.

This fourth edition brings something extra to the table, soon to be announced.

EXPERIENCE ZONE

Every year, WECANDANCE teams up with several partners to let you submerge into the festival atmosphere. We'd like to offer you the opportunity to discover new horizons. It is more than music, fashion and food, and we like to offer you the opportunity to discover new horizons. Have a refreshing cocktail, try that new dish, finish off with make-up or that perfect hairdo.
