The theme of the 14th Nuit Blanche is “Borders”, a theme that has never been far away from the headlines over the past year or so.
The theme of borders is also closely linked to the Nuit Blanche’s aim of breaking down barriers between people; cultures and disciplines and bringing people in the city together through.
Last year 80,000 people attended the Nuit Blanche. The festival’s website reads "The theme is relevant in the current European context. We are currently confronted will a stream of migrants, but we also see that countries are closing their borders.
"The artists taking part in the Nuit Blanche have more than enough material to set them thinking.”
The route of the Nuit Blanche will extend from the Schuman roundabout to the Résidence Palace, the Leopold Park and the European Parliament and will take in iconic locations such as the Concert Noble dance hall and the Solvay library. The festival will go on until 3am.
