"Mainstream comes to you, but you have to go to the underground."
Subbacultcha! and Ancienne Belgique launch a unique festival, ‘The Sound Of The Belgian Underground’. On 26 January 2014 the Belgian cultural platform presents ten national acts from the alternative circuit together on stage at the AB in Brussels.
Ever since its establishment in 2011, Subbacultcha! has been promoting the most progressive independent music and art of the moment. Aided by their membership, monthly magazine and concerts, the organisation found an ideal working-model to already support exciting national and international acts in an early phase.
Subbacultcha! and AB now bundle all the local musical talent active on the edges of the scene under the title ‘The Sound Of The Belgian Underground’ - bands that emphasize artistic freedom and don't necessarily focus on a broader audience. From enjoyable, introverted blues to adamant noise. From indie-rock to idiosyncratic electronica.
Pas de deux main act at first edition of Subbacultcha! and AB’s the Sound Of The Belgian Underground
On 26 January 2014 the Belgian cultural platform presents ten national acts from the alternative circuit together on stage at the AB in Brussels. A fine headliner has now been added, with the unique reunion of Belgian cult-band Pas de deux!
You probably know them best, or only, from the song Rendez-Vous, the Belgian entry for the Eurovision Song Festival in 1983 and the very first song sent to air by Studio Brussel.
But Pas de deux was (and is) much more than that one song and, aside from that one commercial foray, a real cult-band from the underground. That's what we'd like to reinstate now, 30 years later.
We are certainly convinced that their unique show will top off an already exciting evening full of music from the Belgian underground.
Pas de deux are: Walter Verdin; Hilde Van Roy; Dett Peyskens
Anno 2014, complemented by:
Karen Willems (Inwolves, Yuko, Zita Swoon Group, Delvaux)
Kevin Strauwen (True Zebra)
Ciska Thomas (Bright Entity)
Dieter De Mits (The Moonlovers, Mombasa Houseband, Soniquete, Los Mariachis, The Mixtape Gang)
Peter Schneider (Natalia, Leki...)

Dizzying lo-fi pop from Meetjesland
Bear Bones, Lay Low
Futuristic electronica with dub- and noise-influences from Brussels
Obscure pop with a wink to R&B and hardcore
Idiosyncratic beatmaster from Luik who can count the likes of Oneohtrix Point Never amongst his biggest fans
