Dance your butts off at Club Z
Let's get the party started! From the 19th of June until the 2nd of September, Zomerfabriek’s Club Z is back in town. This year, the club returns as an upgraded ‘secret garden’ edition including an open air terrace. Doors are open from Thursday to Saturday for these weekly concepts:
Catch the summer vibes at Tropical Thursdays where you’ll move to the smoothest summer beats. Music ranges from tropical bass to reggae and dancehall music.
If you really want to show off your dance skills, join the preselections of Dancehall Queen contest by BackazzClub. After their passage in Bruges, Ghent & Brussels, it's time to show what you got in Antwerp, as your last chance to go to the finals.
Get down to the hottest future beats at Future Fridays. The line-up includes Belhop hotshot DVTCH NORRIS, Chase resident Yooth, the DJ-teams Soul Shakers, Catwar & Lilihell and Faisal & Jewels. Need we say more? We’re particularly looking forward to DJ and producer Susobrino. He was the winner of the Champion Sound Beat Battle 2018 and we recently had a talk with him:
If you want to get down to the hottest hip hop and smoothest r&b, Urban Saturdays are the place for you. The DJ's will be serving their finest tunes to heat up those summer nights even more.
No parties at Sundays, but don’t panic, the party week starts all over next Thursday. See you there!
