Every time the end of the year is in sight, the city of Mechelen becomes Belgium’s jazz heart for three days. From 3 to 5 December 2020, the 6th edition of the BRAND! Jazz Festival takes place at nona arts centre nona and the Mechelen Cultural Centre. BRAND! boasts an attractive mix of international big guns, established Belgian artists and emerging talents. Previous editions were constructed around central guests (Joachim Badenhorst, Susana Santos Silva, Niels Van Heertum) or a country (the Netherlands, Portugal). BRAND! 2020 focuses on jazz and improvisation from Norway, with a few exclusive Belgian-Norwegian collaborations. More info in September, on www.brandjazz.be.
