Welcome to Globe Aroma’s summer festival! We invite you to an extra festive edition this year, as we celebrate our 20th anniversary.

We present artists who were active with us this year and the previous 20 years. We will open the doors, move into the (Mout)street and the city and make artistic experiments and new encounters possible.

During the day you can follow a workshop, visit an exhibition or watch a film in our small cinema. Every evening concerts, performances or talks are scheduled and daily between 6pm and 8pm we open Globe Aroma’s resto.
