On Monday 15 July 2019, the Belgian DJ Amelie Lens will deliver an incredible DJ set at the Brussels Atomium. The event, which has been organised in close partnership between Cercle, visit.brussels, the Atomium and the City of Brussels, will provide Brussels residents and visitors with an extraordinary experience.
Cercle is a French cultural media platform which sets out to create unique audio-visual experiences while raising awareness of heritage, art and culture among audiences. Every other Sunday, an artist and a place are thrown into the spotlight through a performance broadcast from a surprising venue. The live performance will be followed by an interview on Facebook Live.
The Atomium DJ set is certainly not Cercle’s first event. Indeed, it has already put on events in many unexpected places throughout the world, such as the Palace of Fontainebleau, Tahiti in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the Roman Theatre of Orange and even the Eiffel Tower.
Exclusive DJ set at the feet of one of Brussels’ iconic monuments
The DJ set, made possible thanks to the partnership with visit.brussels, the Atomium and the City of Brussels, will take place at the feet of the famous Atomium, which was built for the Brussels World’s Fair (1958), where it served as its signature building and emblem.
The artist will be filmed from a number of angles on a number of cameras during the broadcast. The programme will be streamed live on Cercle’s Facebook page. Following the live performance, there will be an interview with the artist, where users will be able to ask her questions.
The building was designed and built for the Brussels World’s Fair (1958), where it served as its signature building and emblem. With its slogan “a world for a better life for mankind”, Expo 58 was intended to be the expression of the democratic ambition of building peace between all nations, of faith in technical and scientific progress and, finally, of an optimistic vision for the future of a new, modern and hyper-technological world where all people can live better lives.
You would be hard pressed to find another artist whose star is rising quite as fast as the Belgian artist Amelie Lens. In just a few years, this relentless perfectionist has become one of the most in-demand DJs / producers in the world. Amelie released her début album on the Pan-Pot label’s highly acclaimed imprint, Second State, and then shortly after, a stunning EP on one of the most celebrated underground labels, ARTS.
At the same time, Amelie has launched her own events, EXHALE, which have been quickly booked for the biggest festivals. She has also set up her own label, Lenske, which reflects her authentic, energetic and ambitious image, helping her to solidify her reputation as a knowledgeable curator and an expert behind the decks.
