Breaking Barriers

Malcolm Nix is repsonsible for the booking of the bands for Breaking Barriers, the annual alternative festival in Leuven's music center Het Depot. Breaking Barriers started in 2016 as a celebration of Punk's 40th anniversary. Since then, the festival tries to make it clear that the city of Leuven, in spite of all the urban embellishments, rising rents, superficial student fraternities and obsolete franchises of expensive fashion brands, still has an underground scene. Another purpose of the festival is to offer smaller alternative bands from various countries a chance to play on a large stage in Belgium.

The next edition will take place on Saturday, the 21st of September 2024.
