For his live shows, Beatsforbeaches is accompanied by LEON & Dhazed. Not to be missed! A soul singer, ragga MC and a top-of-the-lot Brussels button-pusher give you a super concert.

De tweede koning van België, Leopold II, legde het in 1882 aan omdat de locatie het mooiste zicht op de grootstad biedt. Het S-vormige park verbindt de hoogste gebieden van Brussel (Hoogte 100 en Albertplein in Vorst) vol statige huizen en majestueuze lanen, met de lagere gebieden die dichter bevolkt zijn (richting Zuidstation).
