Every month we bring you a small round up of some of the coolest events that are going on. So wherever you are in the world, you’ll always have something fun to do.

Brussels: Dour Festival

Dour by name – not by nature. The 2018 line up includes alt-J, Tyler, The Creator, Diplo, Chemical Brothers, MØ, ODESZA, Little Dragon, Mogwai, Action Bronson – and so much more. New for this year’s 30th Festival: a panormamic rooftop cocktail bar and a Relax Zone. Plus, the emblematic Wheel of Fire makes a flaming return, while a team of professional eco-hand washers sort you out after all that sticky street food. Or wait to refuel at the Radisson RED OUIBar + KTCHN!

11-15th July

Plaine de la machine a feu 7370 Dour



Brussels: The city beach

Brussels’ life’s a beach in summer when the area around Place Sainctelette is transformed into Bruxelles les bains – a ‘resort’ you can laze in the sun, dance, play games, catch an open-air film and enjoy an ice cream or aperitif. Stay late to meet in Archipel, the hippest, clubbing concept of summer. Or leave at sunset to admire your newly tanned body under Radisson RED’s Love Yourself lighting!

6th July – 12th August

Quai des Péniches – 1000 Brussels

Minneapolis: Food truck rally


Get stuck into a selection of scrumptious street food as the Minnesota food truck association – with meals on wheels – hosts the annual food truck rally. The 2018 theme is Around The World – and no two trucks will be the same. Sounds come from a number of live bands at the iconic Able Seed house and Brewery – less than 10 minutes from from Radisson RED.
