EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY summer tour!
It has only been some months since Explosions In The Sky visited Europe with their new album ‘The End’, but we are happy to announce their return this summer! This summer they’ll play M-idzomer (Leuven) and OLT Rivierenhof (Antwerp) in Belgium, while they will visit Muziekgieterij (Maastricht) and Paradiso (Amsterdam) in The Netherlands. All information on these concerts can be found on the artist-page.
New on our BeNeLux roster: KELLY MORAN
New York-based composer and producer Kelly Moran’s intricate, experimental pieces transcend the piano’s more traditional and classically-imposed school of thought. Her debut album ‘Bloodroot’ was so impressive that she got noticed by Oneohtrix Point Never and was asked to join his live band. On her forthcoming new album for Warp, Moran augments her pianistic abilities to superhuman levels in order to create a new strain of her singular experimental piano compositions. We will represent Kelly Moran for BeNeLux and have added the first shows.
TOUTPARTOUT x OLT Rivierenhof
It’s probably one of the most beautiful places in Belgium to check out a concert: OLT Rivierenhof. During summer months lots of (inter)national bands do their thing at this open-air amphitheater. Some of our bands are announced for this summer: Explosions In The Sky play a show on August 6th, Blonde Redhead and Noa Lee will perform together with Sleater-Kinney on August 21st. Portland plays the venue on August 22nd and we have a Toutpartout exclusive concert evening on August 26th with Mdou Moctar, Phosphorescent and Sam De Nef & Camille Camille!
Tickets for these concerts are already on sale.

JESSICA PRATT announces new album and goes on tour with JOANNA STERNBERG as special guest
Great news for fans of Jessica Pratt, new music is incoming! The respected Los Angeles-based artist has become one of the most distinctive songwriters of her generation, largely due to the mesmerising sound of her acoustic guitar and vocals: a mystical, elusive mix that leaves a deep impression. The new album “Here in the Pitch” will be out on May 3rd. We’re planning a little EU/UK tour with Joanna Sternberg as a special guest. All dates on the artist page.
New SHIDA SHAHABI tour
We’ve been working on a tour for Swedish composer Shida Shahabi after the release of her second album “Living Circle” in 2023. We already announced the support show at Gunnersbury Park (with PJ Harvey) but we’ve added some more shows and festivals (including BRDCST and OPIA Festival) for this spring. The full list can be found on the artist-page.
Meet DANA GAVANSKI, new on our BeNeLux roster.
Born in Vancouver, to a Serbian family, but relocating to Montreal to attend university, Dana Gavanski originally planned to pursue a career in film. However, following a chance encounter with a guitar left in her apartment by an ex boyfriend, Dana’s attention turned to music. In 2019, Dana signed with Full Time Hobby and released her debut-album “Yesterday Is Gone” in March 2020, where it received critical acclaim and (further) support from BBC 6 Music. “Late Slap” is Dana’s (upcoming – April 5th) third album and deals with themes of the tension between cynicism and despair, and openness and trust.
Dieter will be promotor for Dana Gavanski for the BeNeLux. First date online now!
