b-classic cycles!

C-Mine 10

3600 Genk 

Coproduction with Villa Basta and C-TAKT/C-Mine cultuurcentrum

Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, Tour of Flanders, Ghent-Wevelgem. All spring classics in Flanders to which you may add the Tour of B-Classic. This year our bicycle ride takes you through four neighbourhoods in Genk. Along the way we’ll have fun and hear music at every stop.


The starting signal is given at C-Mine, where Ekaterina Levental will motivate the participants by singing. We’ll be cycling, combining music and sports in four neighbourhoods: Waterschei, Winterslag, Sledderlo and Zwartberg.


To set the right tone, Marockin’ Brass drives along with us for a while in an open vehicle. In Sledderlo Sufi musicians are waiting for is. In Waterschei there will be a cycle of local guitarists with a pianist in the middle: Maarten Lingier. In Winterslag young locals show us their football skills in true street style, accompanied by classical music. In Zwartberg we take a break under the famous bridge where eight rappers and one classical musician will create a universe perfect for the setting: barrels of fire, graffiti on the wall, … the works.


At every break we’ll here the ringtones of Anti.Anti, made with music and sounds of the different neighbourhoods in Genk. Each time local mothers will provide us with a small homemade snack.


We’ll leave the final word to Gökhan Girginol, who created a bridge between classical B-Classic music and the sounds of the youth in Genk: “We connect the four directions of the wind. And in the middle, there’s C-Mine. C-Mine is the cosmos, the centre of ​Genk. Just like classical music is the centre of B-Classic.”
