The second and completely sold-out day of WECANDANCE 2019, was even wilder than the first one. 18.000 festival lovers released their inner nomad and went along on a safari trip with the best beats, finest foods and most delicious drinks. The strong wind didn’t stop the crowd from having a good time, on the contrary, it turned it into an unforgettable experience party with everyone fashionably dressed in true ‘Burning Man’ style.
Even though the wind was very tough, it did the crowd no harm. More than 500 crew members made sure every second of the festival was safe and sound. By sundown, the wind slowed down and we had the perfect ‘golden hour.’

Take a walk on the wild side
With the last waves beating on the sand, WECANDANCE is proud to call its Super 8 live stage a success. Today Claire Laffut and Tessa Dixson broke the silence of the sea and took all nomads on an extraordinary trip. The highlight of the day: The WECANDANCE theme song “Walk on the wild side” by Tessa Dixson. Nomads walking the beach on Sunday can look forward to live performances of Charlotte Adigéry and Sylvie Kreusch amongst others.
Next, to the live shows, our visitors could explore 5 other stages with hip hop, techno, house & disco, all-round and slow dance. The biggest musical highlights Mathew Jonson and Krystal Klear. Peggy Gou and Acid Pauli just started their sets and will close off with an exclusive festival performance, surely creating a magically starry night with her funky beats.
The first opening day of AIRcafé on the festival site was a downright success. Especially for WECANDANCE 2019, Sergio Herman & Paul Morel set up camp to provide a range of extraordinary dishes and cocktails in a relaxing oasis. While enjoying the food and drinks, the crowd could lay back and listen to some downtempo Balearic-infused DJ-sets.
This year, WECANDANCE strengthened its culinary line-up with a Farm To Table concept that is unique for the festival industry. In this way, WECANDANCE wants to show the general public that cooking with local, seasonal products is very tasty, sustainable and affordable. Three dishes created by Belgian top chefs with fish, meat or vegetables are offered at the festival in the new Farm To Table corner. All ingredients come from local farmers. The brand new #Boerentrots movement is a partner of this advanced food approach.
For the very first time, WECANDANCE created an open and safe space for everybody to live out their dreams of freedom. Filled with calming décor and mats, the WECANBREATHE tent is a place to calm down and recharge with Breath Work sessions, Dynamic Meditation and an Ice Bath challenge for the bravest Nomads.
Buckle up for the last day
The third and last festival day seems very promising with good weather and big names such as Kölsch, Patrice Bäumel, Antal and Damian Lazarus. There are still some tickets available for Sunday, August 11th online and at the door. People who are excited to join in for an expedition in the wild can find all information on ww.wecandance.be.
