Bossaball participates in the ‘What’s Up Brussels’
The ‘What’s Up Brussels’ festival is a multidimensional annual event around urban cultures, mixing art, music, dance, fashion, sports and food. Bossaball was part of the 2019 special edition #BXLove that took place on the Place de la Monnaie (Muntplein) on the 5th of October.
The ‘What’s up Brussels’ festival, with the support of the Region Wallonia Brussels, highlights the positive image of Brussels but especially gives the many street artists a chance to perform on stage and alongside professionals.
In the wake of the terrible attacks on the Brussels Airport and the center of the city, the population fought back against extremism with the hashtag #BXLove. The ‘What’s up Brussels’ festival was born a year later, in a benevolent questioning: How are you, Brussels? The 2019 special edition wishes to pay tribute to this moment never to forget.
In this dynamic of promoting the diversity that represents Brussels so well, the organizers planned a colorful eclectic program that will bring together participants from multiple backgrounds. The Bossaball court was installed right in the centre of the famous Place de la Monnaie, or Muntplein, and throughout the festival the two national teams from Belgium and the Netherlands held demo matches and invited the public to try Bossaball and receive classes and workshops by the professional players.
The teams of Bossaball Belgium and Bossaball Netherlands participated in the What's Up Brussels Festival, a multidimensional annual event around urban cultures, mixing art, music, dance, fashion, sports and food.
