Pukkelpop and the famous Hasselt music centre Muziekodroom are teaming up. Muziekodroom has a surface area of more than 3500m² and is located in Quartier Canal, the oldest and hippest industrial area of Hasselt. They host music lessons, workshops and concerts, but Muziekodroom also puts a lot of effort into the development and professional support of (young) artists.
Talks about a partnership have been going on for quite some time, but the corona outbreak and the request from the Flemish Government to look for new collaborations accelerated everything. In a world where the culture and events sector is currently suffering severe blows, you better be ready for a new future. For us this means strengthening and anchoring as much as possible.
This cooperation is also fully in line with our ambition to further develop Humanistische Jongeren, Pukkelpop's youth and volunteering department, and to organise events, workshops and concerts throughout the year. For Muziekodroom it’s a logical step in the further development of their activities. Together with the city of Hasselt and the support of the Flemish Government, we are going to make it a great success!
