6 events that you just can't miss this summer

  • 1. Beleuvenissen
    For three Fridays in July, you can enjoy free concerts during Beleuvenissen. Feel like getting a little nostalgic with Billy Ocean or rocking with De Kreuners? The ambience at the Oude Markt is guaranteed as well as on the other summery squares.
  • 2. M-idzomer
    M-Museum Leuven and the temple to music, Het Depot, are treating you to a unique musical and cultural festival. From 2 to 5 August, you can visit the museum’s unique inner garden for music by Gabriel Rios and Novastar, among others, as well as dance performances, movies, and exhibitions.
  • 3. Hapje-Tapje 
    On Sunday, 5 August, Leuven city centre is the place to be for foodies. Hapje-Tapje is Leuven’s culinary climax. Leuven city centre’s best restaurants are letting you taste a petite version of one of their ‘signature dishes’.
  • 4. Half Oogst
    On 11 and 12 August, Half Oogst will be serving up music, dance, and street art; absolutely free of charge. With well-known names like Grandmaster Flash, ’t Hof van Commerce, and The New Power Generation, it promises to be another rocking party.
  • 5. Films in open-air
    Movies played outdoors at unique locations; that’s the Summer Films recipe for success. The Kasteel van Arenberg, the Abdij van Keizersberg, or the trendy Hal 5. It’s the perfect ending to a beautiful summer day.
  • 6. Parklife
    During the summer, the city park is the greenest, most enjoyable ‘pavement café’ in Leuven. While you enjoy a tasty bite to eat and a drink in the pop-up family bar, your kids can live it up at an original workshop.
