Botanique keeps going thanks to your support

Dear music lovers,

We don’t need to explain that these times are difficult, both for you and for so many artists. It’s especially hard for emerging small bands that we love so dearly, no matter if they’re from Belgium or any other country. On top of that, we don’t want to forget the numerous freelancers, independent labels, small booking agencies and everyone else who contributes to our musical experience. They’re counting on us, and we need them just as much as they need us.

So what can we do? Well, continue doing what we're already doing! And we will, but that obviously takes some patience right now.

Are you feeling impatient or do you just want to support the music industry? Then why not order your favourite band’s latest vinyl online? Or buy your friend that t-shirt of their favourite artist, and have it delivered with extra virtual hugs?

So far, we have found new dates for about 45 concerts, and have had to cancel about 15 shows. All the tickets to cancelled concerts are, of course, refundable. But as you might guess, it’s also quite a burden, so we want to find other suitable and fair solutions.

As a result of the COVID-19 situation, we have decided to launch a voucher, which we offer to you in exchange for your tickets when a new date for a postponed concert doesn’t suit you. By choosing this option, you will help support us and give us a strong signal that you want us to continue working hard, for you and for the promising artists that we support all year round.

When the lockdown is over and it’s safe to go out again, we’d love to welcome you to our venue again. That’s why, if your financial situation allows you to do so, we strongly advise you to buy tickets to our regular shows and Les Nuits later this year. If your friends aren’t convinced yet, or if they are unsure about which shows to attend, another way to support our work is by buying them our Gift Card.

Thank you, and we hope to see you all as soon as possible!
