This unique creation combines freestyle dance with live jazz from the band GlasHelder.

The best freestyle dancers will represent their style in a 1 vs 1 format. Each dancer will be paired with an instrument on which she/he will have to freestyle against an opponent. The further the dancer progresses, the more instruments he/she will be paired with.

We will announce the names of the dancers, jury and host later.

GlasHelder

GlasHelder are five young, super-talented musicians who study together at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. They have been friends for a long time and have played together many times in different line-ups.

The music blog Dansende Beren described their set at Sound Track 2019 as “the new and younger STUFF. in the making” with “a very fun, experimental jazz sound with more angles of jazz off than on”.

Aftershow: DJ Hygra

Born in Nepal, Hygra discovered his passion for music at a young age. After moving to Belgium at the age of 12, he found his own stage in the world of electronic music. This transition proved to be a turning point, with his musical journey evolving from a personal outlet to a bold artistic venture.

Hygra’s music blends various influences from his travels and experiences in different cultures. His sets include an eclectic mix of genres, including amapiano, afrobeats, gqom, bailefunk and hip-hop, reflecting his broad musical palette and boundary-pushing ability.
