Muevelo has finally landed in Brussels, this is their 1st party and surely not the last! 

The party originally hails from Paris, with monthly residences in venues such as l’Alimentation Générale or l’International and always a flurry of special guests from Latin America & elsewhere. The parties specialise in furious *tropical* music, the biggest shakers from Latin America, the Caribbean & beyond.

Rebel Up!, Max le Daron, Grandpamini, Pedrolito et MC C-Imperatriz will put the dancefloor on fire with Reggaeton, Merengue, Moombahton, Cumbia, Dancehall, Tropical Bass and more.
Heat allover, that’s MUEVELO mami ! Ya tu sabes.
