The Muziekodroom is a musical centre in Hasselt with something for everyone: both active musicians and passive popcorn consumers.

Thanks to the pioneering work of the province of Limburg with its pop music policy and a rapid growth spurt, the Muziekodroom has acquired a unique position on the Belgian cultural scene. Its offering covers every possible facet of pop music, and is expanding all the time. There are currently two concert halls, three rehearsal rooms, six classrooms, a DJ lab, a software lab and a café with play podium.

The Muziekodroom's integrated approach allows it to reach thousands of people every week, who come to celebrate their passion for music. The organisers look forward to welcoming you soon, too. Everyone is always welcome!

BELGIË, the only state-recognised art centre in Limburg, housed in a renovated industrial complex, presents a remarkably young and versatile continuous programme of innovative cultural activities. Art centre BELGIË draws from as wide a pallet of disciplines and sub-genres as possible: from performing arts to film, music and stage productions to interdisciplinary creations and festivals.

Its trendsetting agenda ranges from the local to the international, and reflects what is "now" in the cultural and artistic landscape, but also what will be consumed "tomorrow".
