The Ancienne Belgique (AB) is a concert hall for contemporary music in Brussels, Belgium. It is one of the leading concert venues in Belgium. Since the reopening in 1996 the AB can also count on adequate support, firstly thanks to the Music decree, later via the Arts decree. As number one pop and rock temple, since 2008 it can proudly count itself amongst the select group of ‘institutions of the Flemish Community’.
The AB, and more specifically the Club, is still a real hotbed for young artists. Plenty of fresh young talent was uncovered during the Domino festival (1996 -2011). Now there are projects such as Silence Is Sexy and Artists in Residence. In 2014 a new initiative came into being: Get Sprouts Again: AB’s 10 for the future.
In short, AB is still doing what it has been doing for years: introducing interesting new and established artists to as broad a range of music enthusiasts as possible. With passion for music and love for the audience. And there’s no reason to suppose things will change in the future!
