Brussels’ Horst Arts & Music Festival has revealed its full line-up, with the addition of over 50 electronic acts set to descend upon Asiat Park in May.

Among the newly-confirmed acts are Belgium’s Lefto Early Bird, UK grime and garage aficionados Shy One and Nene H and contemporary UK club music DJ and producer Anz.

A partial line-up for this year’s edition was revealed in December, announcing that Octo Octa will attend with a special drum ‘n’ bass set, Aurora Halal & DJ Nobu and duo Swayzak in a live set.

Headliners Skream & Benga will resume their tour after a ten-year hiatus, with Horst 2024 being their only Belgian show.

The festival will feature local acts in prime festival slots, with Bibi Seck & Jenny Cara, Lola Haro, Kr!z and Sixsixsixties & Timmerman playing closing or peak slots.

Music lead, Simon Nowak revealed in a statement seen by Mixmag that this year’s edition aims to reintroduce a “warmer” house sound to “counter today’s ever-increasing tempos”.

Nowak reassured that “ample” space will remain for more experimental styles and “fast-paced frenzies”.

Resident Advisor is set to curate the Vesshcell stage and Kiosk Radio will return to the ‘Moon Ra’ stage joined by The Lot Radio for its Horst debut.

As with previous years, the festival is to host its electronic music acts alongside a variety of art, in the form of exhibitions, workshops and architectural design spaces.

This year’s main stage, set to be designed by Piovenefabi, will remain after the festival functioning as a sports area for local organisations and park visitors.

The three-day festival is scheduled to take place May 9 – 11 at its current home in Asiat Park – a former military terrain reimagined for the Arts & Music Festival.

Horst moved to Asiat Park in 2019 after out-growing its original home, Horst Castel in Holsbeek.

Last year‘s edition welcomed the likes of Bitter Babe, BLUMITSU, Calibre, Donato Dozzy, Evian Christ and more.
