Dancing the night away while enjoying a great drink is not something we usually tend to associate with a train station. Nonetheless, that’s exactly what you’ll be able to do in Belgium’s Liège-Guillemins station on September 16th. The famous building, designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava Valls, will be transformed into a club for just one night during the electro festival Link.
Even though it will be the first time for Link to come to the Liège train station, we’re not talking about a first edition. Previously, the festival has already been organised all around the globe, from Mol, in Belgium, to Bogota, in Colombia, to Mexico City. Over the years, Link has come many time to Liège but never to the train station – a location that has now been made possible through a collaboration with the Belgian national rail service SNCB.
“For the first time ever, Link Festival will set up camp in the incredible location that is the station of Liège-Guillemins, a masterpiece by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava that has been coloured in since short by Daniel Buren”, the organisers said. “It suffices to discover this futuristic space to be able to live a unique experience. On September 16th, the station will show itself under a new light, putting art and electronic music in the spotlights for a one-day-lasting outer-worldly journey.”
As far as the line-up goes, Link has already announced a good amount of artists. Nastia, DJ Bone, Marco Bailey, Dany Rodriguez, Pierre, Tindra et PRSPCTV aka Xentrix will all be present during the festival which will take place from 2 pm until 11 pm at Liège-Guillemins. Tickets for Link can be purchased through the website and cost 34 euros per person. According to the latest update, 80% of the tickets have already been sold so if you want to grab a spot, you better go for it.
