Listen! Festival I BE
Brussels born Lorenzo Serra has been interested in electronic music as long as he can remember. In 1988 he co-organised the first ‘raves’ in Brussels, desperate to listen to the sounds of ‘New Beat and ‘House Music’ that came from Belgium, UK and the States and take part in this musical movement.
After graduating in Communications and working for 8 years in Marketing, Lorenzo decided to go back to organising events with the idea of bringing something else than commercial music or Techno that was the usual playlist on the nightlife scene. It was during the electro clash or the return of the 70’s & 80’s sounds that Dirty Dancing was launched at the legendary Mirano Continental by and under the artistic direction of Lorenzo Serra and Renaud Deru, followed by its inimitable successor ‘Libertine Supersport’(2003 – 2015). Both became icons of Brussels nightlife.
These two projects welcomed and celebrated many artists and created surprising line-ups for the first time in Brussels for eclectic audiences, and over a very short time created a new version of clubbing for fans and artists. It coupled electronic music with artistic expression in the form of live concerts, fashion shows, art exhibitions, product launches and internationally recognized deejays in their line-up.
With his experience in qualitative events and nightlife trends, Lorenzo has co-founded Listen! Festival, the first urban electronic Festival in Belgium bringing together some of the scene's most talented artists from Belgium and abroad. Its fifth will be hosted in Brussels venues from the 8th to the 12th of april 2020.
