This summer again, the Bruges city centre plunges head-first into a bath of atmosphere during MOODS! Spread out over 8 concert evenings, the city festival leads you through an exciting and surprising experience of music from all corners of the world.


Concerts on the Burg The stately Burg square serves as perfect scenery for four free concert evening. On Friday 29 July, the square is covered in a jazzy/r&b-atmosphere with Okon & The Movement, followed by the extraordinary José James, the leading jazz vocalist of the hiphop generation.

On Saturday 30 July, we launch the party evening with the Jamaican Jazz Orchestra and their mix of jazz, ska and reggae; the ideal choice to prepare the square for Tiken Jah Fakoly, pioneer of the African Reggae movement.

On Friday 5 August, Jungle By Night will turn the scene into a tropical dancefloor with their mix of funk, afrobeat and hiphop. No better place for Keziah Jones to thrill you to pieces with his 'blufunk': catchy funk, intertwined with raw bluesy influences.

Shantel & Bucovina Club Orkestar will tickle your summer vibes on Saturday 6 August, together with Orchestre International Du Vetex, by filling the square with their energetic balkan beats.

Moods! Intimate The courtyard of the historical belfry hosts four concerts with paid entrance. For the occasion, the concert location is transformed into a particularly atmospherical setting for a seated audience. In this unique and intimate scenery, we present the 'master performers' Mark Lanegan (Tue 02.08) en Tindersticks (Wed 10.08).

In this setting, undoubtedly, the public will profoundly experience the soulful performance of Paco Cruz Y Su Grupo Flamenco (Wed 03.08), with star dancer Claudia Cruz In a capital role. This is also the location where you can witness the encounter of flamenco pianist and -componist David Peña Dorantes and contrabassist/jazz-virtuoso Renaud Garcia-Fons (Tue 09.08), surely this will result in exquisite and adventurous musical fireworks.
