The not-for-profit association Muziekpublique keeps music and dance traditions alive and kicking in Brussels through an ambitious programme of concerts, courses, and projects.

We bring artists and members of the public together in a spirit of enjoyment, discovery and respect for cultural diversity.

A year-round concert programme, featuring Belgian and international artists, forms the core of the foundation’s activities. From the contemplative to the madly festive, concerts take place indoors and outdoors, around the city and throughout the year.

Muziekpublique members receive many benefits including a substantial discount on ticket prices. By becoming a member you can also access a remarkable programme of courses, where you can learn authentic folk dances from many corners of Europe, and how to play a wide range of traditional European, African and oriental instruments.

Muziekpublique is the musical home of local performers including members of Tamala, Las Lloronas, Jawa, Toasaves, Refa / Refugees for Refugees, Voxtra, Vardan Hovanissian & Emre Gültekin, A Contrabanda.

Situated in the heart of Matongé, the African quarter located next to the Porte de Namur in Brussels, the Molière Theatre has been hosting Muziekpublique’s various activities since 2005. This magnificent theatre with a capacity of 370 seats is regularly filled for Muziekpublique’s concerts as well as used for lessons, musicals residencies or recordings. The theatre is also used for activities from the borough of Ixelles, who is the owner of the theatre and has confided the day to day management of the theatre to Muziekpublique in support of their vocation to promote and give value to traditional world music in Brussels.

This beautiful theatre which dates from the 1960s includes a bar, foyer and exhibition space in addition to the theatre hall whose 370 seats are shared between the stalls and the balcony.

Under certain conditions the theatre is available for activities from external organisations.
