Festival

Different Class 2021

Subba’s hitting the double digits this year. It’s been an adventurous ride, sometimes fueled with uncertainties, but we’re still here and vibing strong. Ten years of music, interviews, films, and exhibitions. A decade of friendship, bonding, and thirst for witnessing breathtaking shows together. A few wrinkles here and there, but fuck that, we’re not done yet. So you know the drill, summer’s here and Different Class is around the corner. The tenth (!) edition of our Summer festival gathering trailblazing acts and members over a few pintjes, arts, and music.

Reservations are not required. There are still some places available. Our digital subscription (€24) grants you access to our platform for 3 months. Our subscription gives you free access to all our events, including Different Class. 

 

Oriana Ikomo, the Ghent-based golden voice who delivers a mix of Jazz, RnB, and Soul with a zest of electronics.

Mattias De Craene, our local Dirty Beaches explores the side of minimalist soundscapes at the tip of his saxophone.

Bby Eco, hailing from Amsterdam and producing earth-conscious tracks, or as he describes it: Earth-pop. Don’t know wtf that is? Come and find out!

Vica Pacheco, a Mexican star based in Brussels, who, for a moment, will take you into a mystical world rocked by multiple layers of sound bites, electronic beats, and ethereal vocals.

Elias Bender Ronnenfelt, the frontman of Danish punk rock band Iceage, is busking around Europe this Summer with poems in one hand and an acoustic guitar in the other.

LYZZA, the young Brazilian DJ – producer – vocalist – curator that is currently shaking up the experimental club scene is back. Expect a mix of bass-heavy club music, underground hip hop and grime groovin to the rhythm of Brazilian funk.

 

PRACTICALS

Before jumping into the festival, here are some practicals to keep in mind!

To enter Different Class 2021, you don’t need a Covid Safe ticket. Instead, the festival will take place under several safety guidelines creating a safe space for everyone. This means social distancing is ensured at the festival site, and a 1,5m distance rule is applied at all times except at your table. Next, don’t forget to bring your facemask! It is mandatory to wear your facemask before entering Different Class. Wear your mask upon arrival (via Godshuizenlaan), and when you’re standing up or moving from your table. Lastly, we encourage you to stay at your table, unless ordering at the bar or going to the toilet inside. We kindly ask you to respect these guidelines, in this way everyone’s safety can be guaranteed. 

Make sure to bring your card and cash to pay! Beers, wines, soft drinks… will be available at the bar by card. Food? Different Dog! From 18h until 21h our delicious vegan hotdog will be available for just €3 in cash. Please leave your own food and drinks at home. Your bags will be checked upon entering. Btw, don’t worry about rain!  All concerts will take place under the esplanade when the weather isn’t too good. We’ve got you covered!

Last but not least: doors open at 15h, the music starts at 15h30 and ends at 22h. There will be a 1-hour break between the show of Matthias De Craene and Oriana Ikomo which gives you the chance to try our very own Different Dog or grab another drink. See you on Saturday!
