The first performances on Friday evening were watched by more than 70,000 people via the app of the daily ‘Het Laatste Nieuws’ or the site of the VRT’s music radio station Studio Brussel.
The organiser of the event is the musician and composer Miguel Wiels. Artists performing at the 24-hour music marathon include Axelle Red, Natalia, Tourist LeMC, Orzark Henry, 2 Fabolia, Clouseau, Daan and the evergreen comic Urbanus.
There really is something to suit all tastes. Each artist is performing their most popular tunes. They are playing to an empty Sportpaleis as almost all indoor gatherings are banned. The musicians are using the concert to show just how much they long to perform in front of an audience again.
"24 Uur Live" is a coproduction by Les Flamands, the Sportpaleis Group and Live Nation with support from the publisher and broadcaster DPG Media, the entrepreneur Marc Coucke and the Flemish Government.
