Amelie Lens to Play Brussels' Iconic Atomium Monument for Next Installment of Cercle Event Series
The success of any party is intimately connected to the quality of its location, and with this in mind Cercle is constantly raising the ambience bar. The French event series has hosted parties in some truly legendary locations, from Solumon spinning at France's Théâtre Antique d'Orange to Nina Kraviz playing the Eiffel Tower to FKJ performing for a crowd of zero in a vast Bolivian salt flat.
Next week, the Monday night party series returns with Amelie Lens playing Brussels' iconic Atomium Monument. The 335-foot-tall silver structure was erected for the 1958 World's Fair and built to mimic nine interconnected atoms, magnified 165 billion times.
"With its slogan 'a world for a better life for mankind,'" reads a press release on the event, "Expo 58 was intended to be the expression of the democratic ambition of building peace between all nations, of faith in technical and scientific progress and, finally, of an optimistic vision for the future of a new, modern and hyper-technological world where all people can live better lives."
The retro-futuristic structure now serves as a museum, and on Monday, July 15, it will moonlight as a nightclub when Belgian artist Lens gets behind the decks, with opening and closing support from Farrago and Milo Spykers. The show will be live-streamed 9-10 p.m. CEST (that's 3-4 p.m. ET in the States) via the Cercle Facebook page.
In the meantime, watch FKJ's surreal, salty February 2019 performance below.
