WECANDANCE FESTIVAL x “SAFARI NOMADS,” Belgium’s award-winning festival returns Friday August 9th thru Sunday August 11th, Zeebrugge, Belgium.
For this edition WECANDANCE calls upon a gathering of SAFARI NOMADS to take over the shores of Zeebrugge during the second weekend of August. However, this year the beach boutique festival will add a third festival day on Friday August 9th and will include a sixth stage with live music throughout the weekend. The 7th edition will be as magical as the number itself, combining music, food and fashion to the wildest imagination of the WECANDANCE tribe.
Since the beginning of WECANDANCE always went the extra mile and this edition is no exception to the rule. On the contrary. The festival offers a multitude of music genres, even more so with the addition of an extra festival day on Friday August 9th. As from 5PM WECANDANCE kicks off with a selection of outstanding performances spread over 2 stages among which one live stage. These live performances will remain for the rest of the weekend bringing the total to six stages exploring hip hop, techno, house & disco, all-round, slow dance and live music. WECANDANCE continues its collaboration with Sunparks for this edition and offers housing, including a shuttle service to and from festival.
This year’s theme is sultry yet adventurous: SAFARI NOMADS takes their tribe on a journey without boundaries or frontiers. Capturing the essence of fashion, WECANDANCE challenges its devotees to strive for authenticity. No need to be Indiana Jones to rock the effortless Safari-look. Aspire towards the latest fashion trends seen on the S/S19 runways and go for belted jackets or all shades of beige one can think of. Throw in some khaki to blend in with the colours of the savanna. Be inspired by contemporary safari shirts, indulge in leopard prints or perfect your look with some python patterns. For in the tribe of SAFARI NOMADS there are no dress codes, only inspirations.
Next to music and fashion, food is considered an equally important cornerstone in this wild expedition. The WECANDANCE Food Market demands a prominent role. Last year, the plant-based corner made its entrance and was a downright success. Furthermore, the Pure C-formula with star chefs Sergio Herman and Syrco Bakker at the forefront will continue in 2019. More food experiences will be announced in the next months.
Dance for A Good Cause
This year WECANDANCE would like to raise awareness for the preservation of Africa’s wildlife and reserves and will support African Parks.
