Between 1 & 3 october, three Excite bands get immersed in the Belgian music bizz by playing shows and doing radio sessions in both Hasselt and Ghent. Meanwhile, it’s a great opportunity for the Belgian crowd to discover talent from The Netherlands, Scotland and Luxembourg.
The promising bands that got selected, are Yuko Yuko (NL), Ice In My Eyes (LU) & Miss Irenie Rose (SC). They will arrive in Belgium on Thursday the 1st of October, with a packed schedule for the following days. First, Music Management students from the pop music school PXL-Music, will welcome them, and provide the artists with vital information about the local music industry.
Then, on Friday, they’re off to Ghent to play a live session on local radio station Urgent.fm, and to play a live show. The show is organized by concert promoter Democrazy, and will take place at the Charlatan, a renowned bar & music venue in the Ghent music scene. As an added bonus, the Belgian Excite band Byron Bay will join for the evening as well.
Finally, the Excite artists are off to Hasselt on Saturday for the main event of their trip: Play Festival, the indoor festival of music club Muziekodroom. There, they will be added to an already impressive line-up, fillled with national and international quality acts in a variety of genres.
