NEW DATES FOR Les Nuits Botanique 2020!

“This year the festival will take place from September 29th to October 11th.

The full line-up is going to be announced very soon, so stay tuned!

As Les Nuits 2020 have been postponed from May to October, we are still working hard on finding new dates for all the announced concerts and for new additions to the line-up. Therefore, we are not offering any new day passes for now. When we are closer to completing the festival’s line-up, they will be available once again.” (source)


Formerly a national botanic garden, Botanique is a Brussels-based cultural centre dedicated to music discoveries and art exhibitions.

The launch of young musical and artistic talent through concerts (300 per year) and exhibitions (10 per year) is their mission and passion. Their music festival, usually in May, this year from September 29 to October 11 (Les Nuits Botanique), together with a year-long cultural season, welcomes numerous musicians from international artists to small local Belgian groups.

Particular attention is paid to the local scene as Botanique aims at developing artistic careers in Belgium and abroad. These bands also elect residence in Botanique, meaning that they benefit, for a set period of time, of a venue and ideal conditions to the outcome of their creation, including rehearsals.
