Fairytales about the moon and other music


LUNALIA is a festival full of stories with their roots in timeless music. Something new for this year is a trail of stories and fairy tales that winds its way through the festival. On 28 April, there are no less than four magical moments to experience. Meet Polina Tserkassova, one of the best storytellers in the world. And discover fairy tales from Estonia, Russia, Morocco, Argentina... and Mechelen, of course! With storytellers Maja Jantar, Jamil al Asadi and Gustave Min, as well as the musicians Gabriel Rivano, Karima el Fillali and Jurgen De Bruyn, the muses are in good hands.

The venues are every bit as unique as the stories. What is more, they are all within easy reach of each other. So you can comfortably combine several shows in one afternoon.
