Over het evenement

BabelFestival is a free summer festival at the BabelBühne. A green oasis in the frayed edges of the city, with a bamboo stage, grandstand and sun loungers around a well.

On Friday evenings, young curators and their artists hijack the site with Urban Sounds, vocal beatboxes & beats, while the cooking pots smell of culinary herbs from all over the world.

Hunger & thirst? 

BabelBar is open from 5 pm!

Syrian cuisine from Ahmed Alhamid.

Stiques and the Wavecome to warm us up, the band around Majesty Stiqler, from Nigeria and newcomer to the Dam since 2 years. When he's not on stage, somewhere in the world, you'll find him bartender DoDo in the BabelBar. Stiques is one of Africa's hidden musical gems. He is an eclectic

singer/performer/producer/audio engineer/songwriter/music composer/sound design artist, based in Antwerp and Amsterdam. He brings 'Afro Street Soul': Afrobeats and Soul and a little psychedelia...

Ruth-Marie& bring band tonight Eastern - African fusion with a pinch of psychedelics: 

Ruth-Marieis an electronic indie-pop band centered around the singer-songwriterRuth-Marie, with Antwerp and Mechelen as home bases. Together with bassist/guitarist and partnerMenno Buggenhout(His Trust Fund, Undskyld) and drummerMathias Ghesquiere(Pardon Service) Ruth-Marie brings a surprising mix of social criticism and intimacy in a wonderful bath of vocal loops, psychedelic synths, supporting basses and driving beats.

The Antwerp songwriter Ruth-Marie has been writing cabaret and sing-song pop for years, and was also in the finals of Imagine Festival and Talent der Lage Landen in 2011. Many years later, in the isolation of 2020, she found a new voice and sound in electronic synths and beats. Her lyrics are an uncensored look at her innermost thoughts – from lust on the dance floor to her anger at climate mismanagement.

A surprise DJ will close the evening!

Come discover what motapaqa, fattoush and fatteh are. Ahmed Alhamid makes lentil soup with various Syrian side dishes, (motapaqa = eggplant, tomato, onion dish, fattoush = mixed salad, fatteh = chickpea salad with yogurt sauce). 

Order your dinner for 10 euros via the ticket link below: places are limited!
