Orange glow

Covid-19 update

Today it’s still not certain if we will be able to organize the festival, or in what form. We’re keeping as many options open to organize something within the given framework, which is deemed responsible and safe. Due to the current circumstances, we’ve adapted Horst’s summer program: The Exhibition won’t take place this year, instead we’ll be organizing an alternative summer program.


Lab 2020 announced

The Horst Lab is a nine-day summer workshop where you engage with leading and inspiring voices from the arts, architecture and music industries. A place where you connect with likeminded people from around Europe and where you further develop your personal self.

It's intended as a life changing experience for every participant. It's created in close partnership with KU Leuven. The full program for the Architecture Lab, Music Lab and Art Lab is now here.


Their Way

With ‘Their Way' Keytrade Bank and Horst inspire their shared philosophy of entrepreneurship and innovation through a new interview series. It offers the stories of DIY entrepreneurs at the forefront of art, architecture and music. Brussels-based BC Architects, Studies and Materials kick-off the new instalment.



The Lab is a platform, set up in partnership with KU Leuven, for experiment, co-creation and creative talent development. A setting in which influential creatives, pioneers and outcasts inspire the next generation to unravel their own talent.


In the past seven years, Horst has grown to a movement dedicated to developing talent, cities & spaces. We blend & celebrate the worlds of arts, architecture & music. We see them as catalysts to build Labs, Exhibitions, and Festivals as momentums for the better.
