Our pagan ancestors had some fine customs. Every year in june, they celebrated exuberantly during midsummer night, through the summer solstice, the shortest night of the year.
Time to breathe new life into this tradition. Handelsbeurs Concert Hall provides a night full of intimate music, making sure the shortest night passes by slowly.
This second edition, we spend the night with the pure music by Ictus & Liesa Van der Aa, dancer Fumiyo Ikeda (ROSAS), long drinks and good company.
