The second edition of Archipel sets a sunnier scene on a decidedly open-air theme. Archipel 2018 will be completely free, focussing fully on outdoor electronic and urban music to foster a friendly atmosphere for dance experiences. Setup at the heart of the Brussels Beach, by the Kanal-Centre Pompidou museum on the Quai des Péniches, the Archipel dance floor is a chill zone with bars against a tropical guinguette backdrop with bamboo sculptures by artist Georges Cuvillier.

Aero Manyelo
Born in Zebediela, Limpopo in 1987, and growing up in the Johannesburg township of Ivory Park, Manyelo was influenced by his father’s love of jazz – and his music has a depth that distinguishes it from South Africa’s plethora of house music. Township Electro is how Manyelo describes his sound and sees him ready to take it to increasing numbers of fans around the globe and at home. Over the past decade, Manyelo’s career has been rapidly gaining momentum on the back of a string of releases on labels such as Out Here Records, Akwaaba Music, Get Physical Music and his own label Herbal 3 Records. His considerable remix skills have also been in demand (Amadou & Mariam’s “Ce N’est Pas Bon” and Jupiter & Okwess International’s “Margarita”), while his original tracks have been included in several high-profile international compilations, and has worked with many renowned artists.

7-8 July > Rebel Up @ Borgofuturo Social Camp, Ripe San Ginesio (IT)

Upcoming weekend, Rebel Up SebCat will be in Italy at the Borgofuturo Social Camp event in the village of Ripe San Ginesio (Macerata region).

The Borgofuturo Social Camp is a whole weekend of activism, ranging from social workshops to permaculture and architecture and much more.

The 2018 themes are the decolonization of the imaginary, the circular economy and the communities in transition. The paths will be interwoven through discussion tables and laboratories and will propose a critical and radical analysis of human and productive relationships. Deconstruct your conditioning and rebuild the foundations of a different future!

We will keep the sharing practices at the center, we will host yoga and meditation sessions and this year a stop-motion animation workshop for the youngest. Among the novelties, a design workshop of urban reuse, in which forgotten or unpublished waste materials will compose temporary or permanent installations for the village of Ripe. The workshop on the traditional voices and dances of the Apennines will prepare us for the final party on Sunday.

Every night there will be an afterparty with bands & DJ’s. On saturday 7 july, it will be Rebel Up SebCat and Brussels afro-jazz band Azmari who will heat up the night 🙂
