Deli Teli

60’s greek revival
Gathered around the sacrosanct triptych: bongo, bouzouki and farfisa organ, the Greek-Marseille band Deli Teli revives the forgotten hits of Laïko.

This is the music that set the Athenian nights alight at a time when Saint-Tropez was rocking to the sound of Yéyé. Mixing, with a subtle dose of Mediterranean melodrama, the hits of this mythical era with a 60’s rock sound, Deli Teli preach a collective, sensual and solar wiggle on the dance floors of the rest of the world.

About

Open to all, environment-friendly, festive, familiar, situated in a magnificent Brussels site, Forest Sounds encloses the Belgian summertime in style.
Powered by Le Palais des Sciences (Antitapas Night), the BRASS (Cultural center of Forest) and the Municipality of Forest.

FOREST ABBEY

Since its foundation in 1106, the Abbey has been in turn a place of worship, a place of market gardening and then industrial production (the mill was followed by a first factory in the 19th century, then a second…), a place of life (for the nuns, the pilgrims, the foresters), a place of culture and artistic creation…
This patina of history gives today to this small village a very particular and precious atmosphere.

Although the development of the railway infrastructure and industrial activities to the north and west have partially disconnected the site from the city, this real green lung is still very much appreciated by the forestois. The presence of the administrative center, of a commercial core and of a real communal square where cultural animations, flea markets and markets multiply are indeed only some of the numerous assets of the district.

For several years now, the heart of Forest has been the object of particular attention: the Hôtel Communal has been renovated since 2010 and in 2014 the Commune of Forest benefited from the Abbey Sustainable Neighborhood Contract, which allows for the implementation of projects to renovate public spaces, public facilities and socio-economic projects.

At the heart of this dynamic, this remarkable heritage that is the pride of its inhabitants and the Commune will be renovated, redeveloped and converted into a Cultural Center by 2023.

À propos

Ouvert à tous, respectueux de l’environnement, festif, familial, situé au cœur d’un magnifique site bruxellois, Forest Sounds clôture l’été en beauté !
Une initiative du Palais des Sciences (Antitapas Nights), du BRASS (Centre Culturel de Forest) et de la Commune de Forest.

L’ABBAYE DE FOREST

Depuis sa fondation en 1106, l’Abbaye fut tour à tour lieu de culte, lieu de production maraîchère puis industrielle (au moulin a succédé une première usine au XIXe, puis une deuxième…) lieu de vie (pour les moniales, les pèlerins, les forestois), lieu de culture et de création artistique …
Cette patine de l’histoire donne aujourd’hui à ce petit village une atmosphère tout à fait particulière et tellement précieuse.

Bien que le développement des infrastructures ferroviaires et des activités industrielles au nord et à l’ouest aient partiellement déconnecté le site de la ville, ce véritable poumon vert est aujourd’hui encore très apprécié des forestois. La présence du centre administratif, d’un noyau commerçant et d’une véritable place communale où se multiplient animations culturelles, brocantes et marchés ne sont en effet que quelques-uns des nombreux atouts du quartier.

Depuis quelques années, le cœur de Forest fait l’objet d’une attention particulière : l’Hôtel Communal fait peau neuve depuis 2010 et en 2014 la Commune de Forest bénéficie du Contrat de Quartier Durable Abbaye qui permet de mettre en place des projets de rénovations d’espaces publics, d’équipements publics et des projets socio-économiques.

Au cœur de cette dynamique, ce patrimoine remarquable qui fait la fierté de ses habitants et de la Commune sera rénové, réaménagé et reconverti en Pôle Culturel à l’horizon 2023.

Over

Forest Sounds is een open festival dat de omgeving respecteert en de zomer op een feestelijke en gezellige manier afsluit in het prachtige Abdij van Vorst  .
Het festival is een initiatief van het Palais des Sciences (Antitapas Night), BRASS (Centre Culturel de Forest) en de Gemeente Vorst.

LOCATIE

Abdij Van Vorst 
stib Tram – Sint Denis – 82-97

⛔️🐶 Helaas zijn onze vrienden de honden niet welkom op het festivalterrein!

ABDIJ VAN VORST

Sinds haar oprichting in 1106 was de Abdij beurtelings een plaats van godsdienstbeoefening, een plaats van groenteteelt en vervolgens van industriële productie (na de molen kwam er een eerste fabriek in de XIXe eeuw, daarna een tweede…), een woonplaats (voor de slotzusters, de pelgrims, de Vorstenaren), een plaats van cultuur en artistieke creatie … Deze patina van de geschiedenis geeft vandaag aan dit kleine dorp een erg bijzondere en o zo kostbare sfeer.

Hoewel de ontwikkeling van de spoorweginfrastructuur en van de industriële activiteiten aan de noord- en westkant de site gedeeltelijk hebben afgesloten van de stad, wordt deze echte groene long nog steeds zeer gewaardeerd door de Vorstenaren die de plaatselijke dynamiek zeer goed kennen. De aanwezigheid van het administratief centrum, van een handelskern en van een echt gemeentelijk plein met een veelvoud aan culturele animatieactiviteiten, rommelmarkten en markten zijn immers slechts enkele van de talrijke troeven van de wijk.

Sinds enkele jaren wordt bijzondere aandacht besteed aan het hart van Vorst: het Gemeentehuis wordt sinds 2010 in een nieuw jasje gestoken en in 2014 krijgt de Gemeente Vorst het Duurzame Wijkcontract Abdij toegewezen, wat ons in staat stelt renovatieprojecten van openbare ruimten, van openbare uitrustingen en socio-economische projecten uit te werken.

In het hart van deze dynamiek zal dit opmerkelijke stukje erfgoed, waarop de inwoners en de Gemeente zo trots zijn, tegen 2023 gerenoveerd, heringericht en omgevormd worden tot Culturele Pool.

WORKSHOPS FOR KIDS from 2:00 to 4:00 pm

#1 🤖🔨♻️ Robot Eco-Heros : create your own robot mask with recycled materials

#2 🎷🎶🥁 PRINS ZONDER CARNAVAL & DE GILDE feat. DIZZY DOUX : Build your musical instrument and participate in the parade

PERFORMANCES

Professeure Postérieur 🏃🏼♀️🎶

Professeure Postérieur offers a participatory performance in the form of a wild and grotesque aerobics ceremony.

A hybrid genre between buffoon show, gym class and music selection
embodied music. This activity is sprot ≠ sport (sprot: [ spʁɔt ] n. lesser-known discipline
but less boring than its first cousin sport).
This is how she invites the audience to participate in a small, friendly, but very invigorating warm-up. We sweat a little, but it’s not dirty, on the contrary, it’s rather healthy, it creates links between people and at worst, it warms up the room. Together we celebrate the secret nerve that connects the posterior to the zygomatic.

Quality playlist, calibrated movements, endorphin sharing, and laughter to boot.
Put on your sneakers, dare to wear the gay, shimmering, vibrant costume and come to exult.

A spare T-shirt is strongly recommended.

DJ Belgitude 🎧

If you don’t understand Belgium, this is the answer. These forgotten Belgian vinyl collectors unearth the strangest music the country has to offer. Low quality guaranteed, it’s all about having fun and discovering the history of the most surreal country on the planet. Schieve Shit Pey!

Eco-Hero Robot 🤖

In her work, Precy Numbi takes objects discarded by society and
transforms them into something new that viewers interact with. As a performance activist and sculptor, he addresses the problems of recycling and proposes utopian and creative solutions through his work.

His performance is an artistic intervention that conveys messages about the environment and trans-humanism, intercultural conviviality and rhythm through different gestures. It highlights the unprecedented development of man by
opening tracks of thought on the state of the transformation of our bodies and our behaviors by including our current society in the major processes of its change.

The Tatoumages 🎨✍️

If you feel like being covered in colors, go see the Tatoumages during their wandering performance. These curious costumed characters are a troupe of intergalactic oddballs who, in a nameless hullabaloo spread love.

PRINS ZONDER CARNAVAL & DE GILDE feat. DIZZY DOUX 🎷

Oyé ! Oye! His Highness, McCloud 1°, Prins Zonder Carnaval (Prince without carnival) of Schaerbeek since 2020, proposes a festive twinning between Schaerbeek and Forest: We’ll celebrate with a joyful entry to the FOREST SOUNDS festival! DE PRINS and his band, DE GILDE feat. DIZZY DOUX, have prepared some rituals and odes to their musical principality. Together with the citizens of Forest, they build percussive instruments for a festive stroll, a crazy decor and an unforgettable moment in honor of the city of Forest!
