Sun 16.08 > Rebel Up & Friends @ Saintklet Summer weekend #1, Saintklet terrace, Bxl

This weekend starts the programme of the new Saintklet outdoor terrace!

Saintklet wants to play a pivotal role in the development of the canal area, together with local institutions. The core idea for creating this space was that we wanted to keep it public, meaning free for everyone to use.
This crisis has taught us that safe public spaces are in decline.
Local initiatives and citizen collectives have to work together to make sure they stay accessible, even during a pandemic.

On sunday from 17:00 – 22:00 we will do a takeover with Rebel Up & Friends with a sweet local lineup!

Rebel Up SebCat
