From Saturday March 28 to Monday May 25, we light the torch (De Fakkel in Dutch) 50 times. Every evening at 7pm, a Belgian artist covered the next one and passed along the torch. How did the fire spread in the Belgian music scene? Through which living rooms did the spark run? You can discover them all via our Instagram!
