Read about our audience's experiences

I witnessed firsthand DC's dedication to their community and the Belgian art scene. I learned so much from both the team and everyone I had the opportunity to interview.

Jesse Brazle

I gained more confidence as a designer, I experienced a lot of appreciation for my work, and I felt like a real part of the team, not 'just' an intern, for which I am grateful. I l❤️ve DC!

Emma Caers

During my internship, I got the freedom to experiment and grow as a graphic designer. I learned about the cultural landscape and had a lovely experience with the team!

Kobe Meeussen

I am grateful to have worked so closely with Different Class. The team is truly inspiring & made me feel seen and heard as an intern. The truest example of a community.

Britt Claes

I felt encouraged to bring diversity and new impressions to the team, something I am passionate about. I have also learned so much from the artists I have interviewed.

Lobna Morsi

I wanna give credit to the entire Different Class team for taking me on as an intern and appreciating my work <3.

Jeremy Tawedian

A blast to work for! The team is very welcoming and invites you to join their ambitious vision of an even stronger cultural landscape.

Florian Meersman

In our collaboration, we strengthen each other in the search for new and contemporary perspectives with a focus on creators and audiences of today and tomorrow. (De Singel)

Katrijn De Wit

In the eternal quest for new, exciting music, DC seems to look where no one is paying attention. A much-needed platform to young artists who dare to experiment. (Democrazy)

Bert Bossaert

DC has always been my source for discovering young artists who bring alternative culture in Belgium and one of the first media to give us visibility. (C12)

Tom Brus

In our cooperation, proposals are made to measure. The content they create is valuable and of quality, with fresh insights and an original approach. (M Leuven)

Samantha Fadahunsi

DC allows us to make great encounters by having access to varied cultural events, which enrich us in art and music.

Lauren Lizinde

I was able to have access to different visions, a world of experimental artistic exchanges, between members but also between artists.

Jennifer Izere

Different Class always had my back. They gave me so many opportunities to perform and express myself.

David Numwami

Some would say Netflix & chill, I would recommend DC & discover

Sacha Vernaeve

The first ones to believe in my work! More than just a medium, it is a community dedicated to enriching the cultural scene, linking emerging artists with institutions & the public.

Miguel Soll

It’s even more than the (awesome) magazine and (vital) event agenda. different class is a community - a family (with great taste)

Dlisah Lapidus

During my internship, I witnessed how much effort they put into connecting people who genuinely love arts and music.

How many options to become I member do I have?

Different Class offers 2 membership plans; standard and devoted, both with monthly or annual billing.

How much does my membership cost?
Is my membership strictly personal?

Yes, it is. That’s why it is impossible to change your name or profile pic in your account once you’ve uploaded or filled this in. If you have a good reason to change, you can always contact us.

Practicals

Do I have to make reservations for an event?

From now on, as a member, you absolutely need to make a reservation for an event you want to attend! 

Do I need WIFI at the door of an event or mobile data to use my membership?

No. If you don’t have access to mobile data on your phone and the venue doesn’t provide free WIFI you can show your ID at the entrance. Venues will receive a list from us with the names of our members who made a reservation. An ID which states your name and photo grants you access too. Attention: You’ll have to make a reservation for the event on your desktop through our website before you appear on this list! No reservation = no free access!

How can I submit my work or any other suggestions?

Determine our content and suggest what we need to feature! Whether it is an exhibition we need to promote, events we need to add to the agenda, a photo, visual artist, text, song, podcast, event or band we need to check,... - this time you tell us! Everything submitted will be considered for future features promoted to the entire Different Class community.

If you want to be considered for features in our magazine, on our site, social channels, or apply for open calls, we invite you to become a Different Class Member.

How do I get access to events?

Our agenda is updated daily to provide you with an assortment of parties, expos, concerts, and other events. Did a show catch your eye? As a member, you can attend any Different Class events for free in just a few steps: 

  • Log in to your DC account
  • Select the event you would like to attend in the agenda
  • Press the reservation button on the event page. Set! You’ll be on the list for free admission!
  • When you arrive at the venue, you can show your ID or your active profile with a picture of yourself. Your name will be tossed off the reservation list.
How does the waiting list for an event work?

We notify our members on the waiting list as soon as new spots free up so you can make a reservation. In this case it'll be first come, first serve, so don't snooze.

What happens when an event is sold out?

98% of our shows don't sell out. However, certain events do sell out more quickly than expected. In these cases, the policy is first come, first served. Please note, that only the members with a reservation can enter.

What happens when the reservation list is closed?

You can make a reservation until the reservation option is closed. After that, you have the option to subscribe to the waiting list for this event. Keep an eye on your mailbox closer to the event, we will inform the people on the waiting list when spots are available again as some people don’t go after all and free up their spots last minute.

What is the difference between favouriting an event and making a reservation?

You can favourite the events in our agenda so we can send you suggestions and info about that specific event, but that doesn’t automatically mean you have access! To reserve your spot, you need to make a reservation by clicking the reservation button.

Why is it important to cancel your reservation if you are not planning to go to the event?

Don't forget to cancel your reservation if you can't make it in the end, you could be freeing up a spot for another member! Maybe next time you'd be the lucky one to get a last-minute spot. We will send you a reminder 1 day before the event.
