Absolute Beginners 2023

Absolute Beginners 2023



Absolute Beginners is back! For the third year in a row we are organizing 'Absolute Beginners': a series of workshops for everyone who wants to taste music in a safe environment, whether you want to take your first steps in producing, are interested in music journalism or have long been dreaming of your own band.

Throughout the summer holidays, Absolute Beginners takes over Trix every Wednesday from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Often up to three workshops take place in the building at the same time. The ideal time to meet like-minded creative souls!

In addition, there will be three longer workshops in which you will delve deeper into the themes 'Lighting technology', 'PA & Sound technology' or learn screen printing during a full day from 10:00 to 17:00.

Every workshop costs between €10 and €20. The longer ones cost €35. We offer concession spots to anyone in need of them. Please send us an email

All courses will take place in small groups of 9 to 15 people. 

Do you have a question about any of our workshops? Send us a DM via Facebook or Instagram, or message us on Whatsapp via 0468 21 35 63!
