For two months, there’s music, movies, stunts and parties all over Antwerp’s hidden corners, like an industrial site in the harbor where everybody watches the sunset (and nothing else) from a wooden stage. Prices vary, but movies and outdoor concerts are usually free.
Antwerp has a proud gay community. There’s gay bars, bookshops, clubs, ... all over the city. But one week in August we just do that little extra: a stiletto-run, golden shower parties, Mr Wet Underwear contest, pride parade, ...
The Laundry Day Festival started as a small street festival that didn’t even have a stage. Today it’s a giant electronic music festival that has 13 stages, over 100 artists (Martin Solveig, Laidback Luke among others, and local heroes TLP and Murdock) and over 60.000 visitors each year.
In order to create some space in their warehouses, Antwerp’s most famous designers sell their leftover stock at reduced prices: you might walk out fully dressed for the money normally spent on underwear (fashionable underwear, that is).
