This Saturday (September 3) it’s time for another edition of Laundry Day. What once started out as a small event in one of the coolest streets of Antwerp, Kammenstraat, is now a mass event with 130 artists performing on twelve stages. We selected five acts that will definitely make your Laundry Day a great day.
There’s no better way to kick off your Laundry Day than with a set by Stu Bru DJ & producer Faisal. Turning heads with productions, bootlegs and edits that go worldwide and drawing influences from a wide array of genres for his sets makes him one of Belgium’s biggest upcoming talents.

Abraham Blue’s signature lo-fi beats and sultry vocals earned him a co-sign ofSoulection and landed him various gigs in London including a performance at the Lovebox Festival. Soulection affiliate and renowned producer J-Louis remixed a couple of his songs and he made a thumping tune with PYRMDPLAZA at the Red Bull Studios in London. His live perfomances are always on point and he frequently perfoms unreleased material which sounds even better than the stuff he already released.
