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.

Due to a series of cancellations, mostly because of the COVID-19-related restrictions in other countries, the 2021 edition is unfortunately cancelled. The fifth edition will eventually take place in 2022. As soon as any decisions have been made, everything will be announced here.

The link below provides information on what's planned for the upcoming edition of the festival.
