Belgian festival Horst returns to their home of Asiat with a staggering 100+ acts and a killer design ethos to match. Now gearing up for their eighth edition the three-day celebration of art and music is taking aim at the full spectrum of electronic music. Taking place between April 29 and May 1 the former military site will be placing the aesthetic aspect of the event in the creative hands of Milan based architecture office Salottobuono, London’s JAM studio and Traumnovelle from Brussels.
With the artistic aspect of the festival stages taken care of now comes the monumental task of musically programming such an epic event across six festival stages. Across the weekend there will be major players from across the music sphere and while there will be some familiar faces returning there will be swathes of artists making their first appearances.
“9 months after the 2021 burst of energy, we wanted the 2022 edition to chart into new territories. Both in quality and quantity. We decisively aimed for a programme that breathes familiarity but is also infused with plenty of new discoveries and ample space for leftfield sounds on the Horst spectrum. The 2022 line up is open to all with a curious ear and a welcoming mindset for undercurrents and communities. We hope it will serve as guidance for new human connections, unbarred dancing and front left epiphanies.” — Simon Nowak, booker.
