Cutting Edge spares no efforts to keep you up-to-date. Editor-in-chief is Kevin Major, one of Flanders best-known radio voices; he reads the news on national radio station VRT.
For the fourth year running, Cutting Edge is staging a multi-genre bash the day before Easter in Antwerp's Petrol club, with music, film, comedy and disco bars.
Easter Edge gathers a selection of artists who have received great reviews on Cutting Edge. Headliner this year is Antwerp-based pop-rock band A Brand (pictured), whose brand new album, Future You, got four stars from Cutting Edge.
More music comes from the alternative pop duo Chloe & The Lonesome Cowboy. A few months ago, the pair received the Cutting Edge Award for Talent of the Year - remarkable considering that three years ago, neither of them played any instruments or had any experience.
Short film screenings at Easter Edge are Now/Here by Flemish Audio-Visual Fund wild card winner David Williamson and Marie by Jozefien Scheepers, which finds a young woman running broken-hearted through Antwerp.
Stand-up comedy comes in the form of Leids Cabaret Festival winner Jeroen Leenders and actress, singer and stand-up Veerle Malschaert. Once your laugh muscles are warmed up, get ready for some more action...on the dance floor.
Discobar A Moeder's style is anything but predictable (polonaise meets reggae meets '90s hits). Then meet the man himself, as Kevin Major spins the decks.
Tickets to Easter Edge are a bargain at €11.50 in advance from the website or €13 at the door, which you'd normally pay just to see A Brand alone.
The evening starts at 20.00 and ends on Easter morning around 5.00, just in time to nip home, have a shower and start hunting those chocolate eggs.
