Guacamayo Tropical (CO / Madrid)
The Colombian duo Guacamayo have been taking all the afrolatin flavour in their suitcase, spreading the sweaty love in their wild Guacamayo Tropical parties in Madrid and their Festival Guacamayo in the mountains near Madrid. Their sessions are characterized by the integration of organic musical instruments such as Colombian gaita, tamboras and djembe, and even typical and native dances switched up with digital beats. Also, they explore new sounds created from traditional roots with a slightly digital edge. Hearty, lively rhythms and flood the crowd with a colorful wave of love, joy and Cumbia! Inspired by earthly ancestral trips, they show us a path, an idea and a project aimed at challenging the senses on all fronts, shooting out sounds explosively charged with good vibes, light and hope.

The Silly Tang (UK/FR – Madrid)

Playing alongside names such and Randall and J-Man in the Jungle music scene and rocking up some Gypsy Folk next to names such as Balkan Hotsteppers or Innamorati. He has now settled to live tangly in Madrid, Spain to start continue producing more delightful tangoloid sounds, between dub, cumbia and ancestral latino folklore.

Mr Orange (Lowup, Bxl)
a Brussels based music aficionado and founder of both the infamous Los Hermanos Brothers and Lowup. His musical universe is broader then broadway and he’s also active as a sound designer for theater and film. In his more informal playing moments he’s also known as Carrot or El sñr Naranja. Groovy tropicalism with a pinch of the unexpected and some tongue-in-cheek humour. Good music is timeless.

Sat 5 July > Rebel Up! & Lowup present; Frikstailers (AR) cumbia from outer space party @ Salle Rogier, Bxl

Poster Web

Rebel Up!  has teamed up with the Lowup crew to organize a Brussels show for the Frikstailers 2014 European tour at Salle Rogier.

We kick off early at 18:00 with BBQ (veg + meat) and cold drinks on the terrace out front and showing the world cup quarter final between Belgium – Argentina,  just the perfect game for our Belgian-Argentinian party!!!
At 23:00 we move inside for a concert by the “indisputable galactic emperors of tropical futurism” followed by a steaming global bass party with all the local heroes. Have a peek at our FACEBOOK event for details and more music.

The rhythms and textures of traditional Latin American music infused with hip hop and dancehall beats, dramatic synth leads and krauty electro noodlings: Argentinian duo the Frikstailers boldly go where no band has gone before and they do it with verve and gusto.


With one album, two ep’s and some sizzling hot remixes to their name this Mexico City based duo have established themselves as a first class electronic live act at festivals on both sides of the Atlantic and are now bathing in the favourable attention of reputable institutions such as XLR8R, The Fader, Boiler Room and Modeselektor.

The dj’s of the Rebel Up! & Lowup crew will surround their live set with cumbia bass, dancehall, urban electronic and many other spicy tropical dance styles.

18:00 outdoor on terrace: FOOT (BEL-ARG) + BBQ + APERO > free in
Come round early for food & drinks, enjoy one of DJ Mellow’s big kefta & Leblanc’s chickpea sandwiches (5€) with homemade dressing and salad out on our rainproof terrace. Join us for the pre-party quarter final BBQ and hang outside for a relaxed summer feel.
