PENELOPE ISLES [UK]

LE LAC

When you’re trying to make it through tough times, you need a little light to find your way.
In 2019, Penelope Isles created a first sweet sparkle with a first album, “Until the Tide Creeps In”. Then, that sparkle turned into comforting fire when the second album, “Which way to happy” was released in 2021.

Penelope Isles is one those bands that only require a few seconds before the audience gets mesmerised by their musical dream. If the band is now based in Brighton, Lily and his sibling Jack started Penelope’s journey on Isle of Man, where they come from. They named the band after their mother’s name.

The band’s music blazes brightly eclectic melodies, setting the uncertainties of twentysomething life to alt-rock and psychedelic songs brimming with life, colour and feeling.

MOÏSE TURIZER [FR]

LA VALLÉE

The duo Moïse Turizer delivers an hybrid sonic experience, real shock similar to a party in an industrial plant, wild rhythms and an ice-cold post-punk gig.

From the first beat until the last one, the French duo only aims to create an apocalyptic wave that will transport the audience to cold-wave heights. After releasing a first 6 titles disc, “Bird Yard” in 2019, Moïse Turizer then came back in 2021 with a first EP, “Modern Light”. Since then, the band has been hitting the stages across Europe. In 2022, they released a new EP, “Cc: Dream”.

If you are looking for a band that will make your body shake, you better don’t miss Moïse Turizer!

Ways Around is not only a music festival. We want the event to become a community around which anyone, music lovers, families, hipsters, etc. could gather. We want to create an atmosphere and highlight values we consider important.

Le Lac is one of those underground gems Brussels has to offer. Independently managed the venue offers a variety of cultural events. From concerts to poetry or exhibitions, Le Lac is a cauldron of culture in which everyone is welcome to add ingredients.

The venue has become one of the main spots for music lovers in search of upcoming bands. It’s no surprise that several artists that played at Le Lac, then played on bigger stages either in Brussels or in Europe.

In 2014, the Smart cooperative signed a 27-year lease for the occupation of a 6000m² former industrial laundry in Molenbeek. The goal is to install within the building a community of artists and creative entrepreneurs and to offer a various cultural program as well as spaces for rent.

The ambitious project takes the name of La Vallée, from the name of the street in which the project is located, and develops rapidly inspired by the dynamics of the Third Places.
