Klinkers has ceased to be. Since 2014, the renewed concept of a city-wide festival bears the name Moods! The summer festival (free of charge) lightens up July and August, and brings a unique atmosphere to the centre of Bruges. Spread out over eight concert evenings, Moods! lets you discover a wide array of relevant sounds, with the illustrious medieval city of Bruges for scenery.
The famous Burgplein serves as a unique venue for four free shows. Over the years, The Scene, Garland Jeffreys, Zap Mama, Babylon Circus, José James, Billy Bragg, Wovenhand, Suzanne Vega, Sophia, The Magic Numbers and many more filled the square with music.
For Moods! Intiem, we dig for gems from the larger musical traditions and present four concerts for a seated audience with admission fee. Moods! Intiem has hosted Gavin Friday, Spain, Tom McRae, Múm, Nils Frahm, Melanie De Biasio, Avishai Cohen, Villagers amongst others.
Moods! Is a co-production between the city of Bruges and Cactus Muziekcentrum vzw.
