Kokopelli is not only the god of music but also the god of love. We therefore combine our love for music with love and attention to our fellow man.
Kokopelli supports new events: Lioness is a brand-new event on Saturday 10th of Marchn two days after the International Woman's day. Lioness puts women in the picture. Not only already known female talent gets a place, but also up and coming female artists get a place onstage.
Lioness offers stages to different art disciplines, from dance and music to visual arts. Throughout the day there will be an ongoing exhibition, and there are various dance and music performances.
In addition, you'll be invited on Lioness as a visitor to actively participate. There are various workshops as well as a market with homemade stuff.
Lioness is an event for everyone! You're welcome!

‘The New Programming: Global Sounds?!’ This was the name of a new network- and information event about festival programming on sunday 14th of Januari in the AB (Ancienne Belgique). Kokopelli sent some of our line-up responsibles to this event, so we can keep up with the latest trends and news in the festival world.
The title of the event covers a lot, so here is a small summary of the topics that where discussed:
Keynotes are also a habit on informationdays, this one was given by Kurt Overbergh (Artistic Director AB). Mr. Overbergh explained his artistic voyage of discovery, the new artistic course that the AB is sailing in recent years and the obstacles that he encounters.
In addition, there was also time to make contact with colleagues and to exchange experiences and information.
More information about the information day can be found on the AB website: www.abconcerts.be/het-nieuwe-programmeren-global-sounds
