The new name might ring a bell. For the past 10 years, our annual summer festival has fostered this title. From now on, Different Class is the name of our whole picture, a place of community, boundary-pushing, and new experiences:
Different Class builds a bridge between artists and audiences. From the writers, photographers and videographers that help us highlight the artists and venues we work with to our dynamic community of members and volunteers, we’ve created quite the ecosystem! On our social media channels, our carefully selected agenda, and our publications, we invite everyone to explore something Different.
We value Different thinking as we seek boundary-pushing artists and fresh faces. We choose to focus on young, diverse, and local artists to serve as a stepping stone for many collectives, organisations, and talents in Belgium.
Making new, Different memories has never been easier. By partnering with more than 70 venues and promoters all across Belgium, Different Class offers you free spots at the best and brightest concerts, parties, performances, films, and exhibitions.
Different Class is a place for people who are open to discovering new artists and art, and also making new friends who have similar interests
Herlinde Raeman, Founder and Editor-in-chief
Whether you are an art lover, a party animal, someone finding their place in a new city, and anyone else wanting to discover new events, people, and art, we open the gate for you! Get a glimpse of the best events and artists in Belgium.
So, what is Different?
With the arrival of Different Class, we are launching a brand new website. A new website which makes it easier to reserve your spot at Different Class events. Now, in order to attend a concert, expo, or party, you must make a reservation in advance. This makes it fast and easy for you to get into events for free.
We value our members’ skilful eyes! Want to recommend a show, party, or concert for our agenda? Want to write or take photographs for our publications? Want to intern at the DC office? Want to be featured in our magazines? Our new website makes it easier for members to get involved with Different Class.
New members can now join DC for a minimum of one month. We’re sure our event agenda will convince you to stay, but you can pause your membership at any time.
This year, our agenda will be framed around three Different Class parties, starting with one in Antwerp on 10.03.2023 at De Studio. Working with local organisers and collectives to organise these events, we are connecting our community through new experiences for our Different Class members.
