Ancienne Belgique blows out 40 candles: a festive pretext to look back over the exciting history of this 40-year-old Flemish rock temple. But Belpop takes the viewer even further back in time, to the very beginning, when the Ancienne Belgique was still a spectacular music-hall where stars like Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel and Charles Aznavour were regulars.
AB has undergone many transformations since then, but the venue can thank its unique soul to the enthusiastic teams that have worked behind the scenes over the years. Driven by a collective mission and unconditional love of music.
