Firefly Sessions 2022

From 26 June until 30 June 2022, Muziekpublique will organize this special event for the second time. As darkness sets over Brussels, male fireflies hit the forest looking for mates. They blink their beaming bellies as they fly around and before long they have synchronized with their neighbors. This bioluminescent mating dance peaks for just a few nights a year.

With musician-biologist Raphaël De Cock, the Belgian firefly specialist, we invite you to a musical stroll through the Forêt de Soignes. Between an intimate concert and a moment of nature observation, the “firefly sessions” are a magical and unforgettable moment. The tour includes explanations about fireflies, moments of very quiet acoustic music orchestrated by Raphaël De Cock and a surprise guest, and ends with the observation of fireflies, which only appear at sunset.

The ticket sale starts on Tuesday 17 May at 10h30. Limited places available.
Be careful: if you reserve with several people, make sure to make the reservation for the same date of the session. Afterwards it is not possible to change the date of your tickets.
