Passing With Flying Couleurs

Jaune Toujours, Pablo Andres, Superlux, Skarbone 14, Slang, Puggy, and Abb are the acts that won the festival’s "Wanted" talent search, earning a slot at this year’s Couleur Café festival.

The idea was launched in 2006 because the organisers wanted to encourage Belgian artists to make themselves known through the festival, particularly those from genres that may not necessarily have thought of putting themselves forward for the 18-year-old world and urban music event.

The acts that won were culled from an initial entry of 124.

The international lineup for Couleur Café June 29th to July 1st already includes Ziggy Marley, Horace Andy, The Roots, Ayo, Johnny Clegg, Rachid Taha, Yuri Buenaventura, Cassius, Daan, Buscemi, Patrice, Adrian Sherwood, Manou Gallo, and The Havana Lounge.
