Hooverphonic

We are mad about them!

‘Geike, Alex & Raymond: The Magnificent Three are back’ Hooverphonic’s iconic line-up is back. We no longer present a group like Hooverphonic. In 1996, “A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular” launched the group on the Belgian music scene and opened the way to an international breakthrough. In 2000 Hooverphonic had its international success with in particular the album “The Magnificent Tree” on which appears the essential title “Mad about you”. Exactly 20 years after the release of this album the group announces its reunion: Geike Arnaert is back. Between 1997 and 2008, Geike was the singer of the Flemish group with Alex Callier and Raymond Geerts. With her the band broke through and her iconic voice made many people lifelong fans. The Magnificent Three, the apt nickname given to them by their Japanese label, are back. “We met. We started talking. We all felt a real urge and motivation to work together again, which is why we decided to just go. That’s still the main line-up of Hooverphonic, the version that is synonymous with the band for a lot of people. It really is that simple,” says Alex Callier.

To see Hooverphonic in concert is an experience like no other. An unmissable event.

Mister Cover

DJ Pops

Make the panties drop

Finally, DJ Pops will warm up the dance floor and take you through an amazing night.

He has performed at the Baudet’stival in Bertrix, the Summer Lake in Neufchâteau, the Viva For Life tour in Bertrix or recently as a warm up for DJ Daddy K.
