Where do Candlelight Brussels concerts take place?

As part of our exploration of candle concerts, we also had the pleasure of discovering the Concert Noble, a prestigious ballroom located in the heart of Brussels. With its ceilings rising crescendo to an impressive height of 15 meters in the Balzaal, offering a surface area of ​​400m², its paintings, its chandeliers, this room is a true architectural gem. In addition to its private events, the Noble Concert also offers cultural events accessible to all throughout the year, providing an ideal setting for candlelit concerts. 🎶

A few months ago, I had the incredible opportunity to experience a unique experience within the Atomium ! ✨ This summer, Fever organized a series of candle concerts in one of the spheres of this emblematic monument of Brussels. The concerts, lit by the subdued glow of candles, took place in the Prigogine room of the Atomium, thus offering a retro-futuristic setting perfectly suited to the intimate atmosphere created by this particular illumination. Even if the candles used did not produce real flames (for safety reasons), the visual effect was absolutely stunning ! 🕯️ This romantic atmosphere appealed to most of the participants, mainly couples looking for a unique musical experience. 💑

My experience and opinion on the CandleLight concerts

My experience with the candle concerts was simply magical. In this spectacular place in Brussels, I had an enchanting and intimate musical experience. It was a timeless moment, where Coldplay's music resonated in the warm, dimmed atmosphere of candles. Well-known songs such as “Clocks”, “Fix You” and “Yellow” added a touch of magic to this exceptional evening. The concert went by too quickly, but every moment was wonderful. It's easy to see why Candlelight is such a success in more than 100 cities around the world, with more than 3 million participants. It’s an experience that I highly recommend to all music lovers looking for a unique and memorable moment.
