The party animal guide to Museum Night Fever

Are you the type of persons who won’t rest until you’ve seen all the parties, heard all the music and done all that booty shaking?

We’ve got just what you need tonight with this selection of 6 museums that are on a mission to make you dance til you drop!

ADAM Brussels Design Museum

Start at ADAM Brussels Design Museum and actually take some notes on how to party with their latest exhibition ‘Night Fever. Designing Club Culture 1960 – Today’ that swirls through the aesthetic universe of nightclubs. There’ll be synthpop with P.A.N.T.H.E.R., Belgian design blending fashion and plastic by Morph’Ose and sensory discoveries with Passe Muraille.

Choco-Story Brussels

Take the orange shuttle to go to the centre and get your fix of chocolate at the brand new Choco-Story Brussels. Meanwhile both the mysterious Lady Valentine and a group of Belgian DJs (Planet 16, Space Kid and Mr Strøbø) will make you dance the calories away.

ING Art Centre

At the ING Art Centre, go play dress up and relive the 60’s in music with ‘Revolutions – Records and Rebels – 1966-1970’.

House of European History

As you feel rebellion in the air, head out to the House of European History with the green shuttle to experience what it was like to be young in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. The museum is throwing a big European bash filled with music, dance, costumes, sets and activities in collaboration with RADAR events (the organisation behind Radio Modern and Dr Sketchy’s Belgium).

Army Museum

Not too far from there, the Army Museum invites you to channel your inner Josephine Baker with a jazzy night around the ‘Beyond the Great War’ exhibition. With music by the young folks of LUCA Jazz (conducted by Jos Machtel), Charleston demo’s by UNIK and a personal makeover, the roaring 20’s will no longer have any secrets for you!

CIVA

Earlier from the centre, you might as well have taken the purple shuttle and if so, you’re in for a treat at CIVA, centre for architecture and urbanism, where the coolest The Word are in control of the music programme with a DJ set by Mind Warp and a live set by Lawrence Le Doux. Exhibition-wise, the sound installation retrack, rehearsal by Fien & Kevin lends a new dimension to ‘Designed Landscapes’. And to end up the night on an extravagant note, Art-T and students from Saint-Luc pay homage to Akarova, a choreography queen of the Brussels avant-garde.

Museum Night Fever takes place on Saturday, February 23, 2019 from 7pm to 1am in 30 museums.Info & €12 tickets now available.
