theme — just an illusion

It’s not an illusion dear dancers, our theme is back! Inspired by the hypnotic colours and psychedelic prints that appeared during the Paris fashion weeks last September, we’re taking you on a trip full of wonder and magical enrichments!

As psychedelics do, this edition of our festival aims to enhance your awareness and perspective of your days with us at the beach. Think distorted creatures, illusions and colourful textures, trippy prints, fabrics inspired by the 60’s and a whole lot of colour. This year’s edition we hope to offer you a sense of euphoria when taking a break from real life with us.

Head to our Pinterest page for some more inspiration! 

Do note that WECANDANCE is not a dress code required festival. We hope for you to be your unique self, in any way that suits you! Creative expression is in our DNA and we look forward to seeing yours too.

food — and drinks

We’re known for breaking the rules and pushing boundaries when it comes to our festival food! It’s in our DNA to raise the bar in culinary terms. Think: high-quality, sustainable and local ingredients and a broad variety of vegan, vegetarian and halal dishes.

FOOD & DRINKS — What’s new this year?

BRUNCH — A SEASONAL BUFFET 
On Saturdays and Sundays, our new concept grants you exclusive access to our fully decorated brunch restaurant on the beach! Serving cocktails and a vegetarian 3-course buffet from 13:00 to 15:00, the seasonal menu and charcoal grilled goods by Vincent Banic (i.a.) will make this a memorable festival experience. The brunch restaurant is accessible on reservation only and tables are limited so make sure to book your seat in advance on www.wecandance.be. Saturdays are hosted by #Boerentrots (Trots aan tafel), Sundays by Grey Goose (Vive La Vodka).

WHEN? — Saturday 6 and 13 and Sunday 7 and 14.08.2022 from 13:00 till 15:00
WHERE? — In our fully decorated brunch restaurant on the beach, Zeebrugge
PRICE? — 175€ (including your festival ticket) or 110€ (if you bought a ticket already).

WINE — ILLUSION  
We proudly present ILLUSION, our very own natural wine! Illusion is a super juicy and fruity bottle of dark rosé: 100% natural with peachy notes that make you feel a little suave. A mix of Zweigelt and Gelber Muskateller, the perfect bottle of natural wine to serve during hot summer nights or sweaty beach days! For sale at the natural wine bar on the WECANDANCE beach this summer.

COMING IN HOT (SAUCE) — FIND YOURSELF
As psychedelic substances do, this collaboration is one to enhance all your senses! We teamed up with SWET, natural hot sauces handmade in Brussels! The WECANDANCE hot sauce ‘Find Yourself’ with a 6.5/10 heat score and a mango, pear and ginger base is the ultimate topping for those who like to challenge themselves. Besides the personalized WECANDANCE hot sauce, SWET will launch a limited-edition version of their ‘Fumado’ and ‘Green Light District’ flavours fully branded in the WECANDANCE season 2022 trippy vibe. And for those who feel like adding some spice to their food at the festival: head to the SWET spice station and get ready to go on a hot trip.

MENU — WECANDANCE FOOD! 
At the always crowded food market, you’ll find Mission Masala, Bokertov and new this year… a full menu made by WECANDANCE! Think creamy smash burgers, crispy fried chicken, sourdough pizzas and velvety pastas.

We hope you enjoy all that we developed in our restaurant on the beach! Oh and for dessert, our local buddies from Oyya, homemade ice cream from Bruges are developing a WECANDANCE ice-cream flavour! Any idea what the WECANDANCE ice-cream flavour could be? This year’s theme – Just An Illusion – is the trippy inspiration…

FOOD & DRINKS – What you already knew

All things crispy from Frites Atelier by The Sergio Herman Group were a great success last year, so we invited them back! No WECANDANCE without something Sergio!

And after selling out every day in 2021, our 100% natural wine bar will be back too. Black & Yellow will take care of your energy espresso shots and we’ll add flavourful and surprising non-alcoholic drinks and cocktails to our bars to enhance mindful drinking for all you dancers.

At this year’s two-weekend edition the WECANDANCE food market is open from 12:00 till the end of every festival day. Ideal for grabbing some unusual festival lunch before dancing on Saturdays or even some hangover food to get fuelled up to go all day and night on both Sundays.

We’re soooo looking forward!
