Krewe du Belge is a belgian company of the New Orleans carnival. Their ambition is to promote the culture of this outstanding city : its folklore, culinary art, cocktails, myths and that incredible ability to survive. And also, of course, its music : jazz as well as funk, rock, rap, folk... A city that has never been as creative as today, 15 years after Hurricane Katrina.

In Protected content , Krewe du Belge will experience its very first Mardi Gras. Before leaving for New Orleans, the association organizes a
“Bal” as in the Nola tradition. A King and a Queen will be crowned. Cocktails, gumbo and Po’Boys will be tried out. Everyone will be invited to express their grievance for the past year, on a parchment that will be burnt and thrown by the Krewe in the Mississippi river a few days later.

A “Big Easy” music festival will liven up the evening, with several Belgian bands, equally passionate about New Orleans music, with compositions from the 20’s untill now.

Concerts from 18:00 :
- Brussels Bayou Orchestra
- Morning Call
- Laurent Vigneron & Max Malkomes
- Krewe du Belge brass band
- DJ funk at the Crescent City
