A night of Belgian beats (we’ve enlisted the cream of the crop of Belgium’s beat scene to bring some bass to the dance floor), photography treats (the launch of a commemorative photo book we’ve been working on for the past three months) and future foundations (we’re about to ask you to put your money where your mouth is and show some love). Read on for all the practical details.
