Heverlee Transforms Unused Arches into Belgian Micro-Festival

Edinburgh’s New Waverley arches is going to be transformed into a contemporary Belgian beer garden as Heverlee beer launches a 3 day micro-festival. Friday sees the launch of this event, fusing Scottish and Belgian cultures, with Friday being Belgian National Day.  The event will run until Sunday.

Heverless at BNew Waverley is bringing together some of Scotland’s best know names in food, music and art to create an exciting and diverse line-up.  Heverlee is a street food market,

Over the micro-festival, Firecracker Recordings will programme a hand-picked line-up of eclectic electronic DJs to soundtrack the party atmosphere. Those playing include the likes of Charlie Bones of London’s underground radio station NTS and Edinburgh’s own Linkwood. Another big name on the bill will be LuckyMe Record’s Éclair Fifi, a Scottish DJ who has previously held slots on BBC Radio1.

A full line up of the arts and entertainment available will be available through Heverlee’s social media channels: Facebook , Twitter and Instagram

Heverlee at Tontine ran a successful pop-up Belgian beer cafe in Glasgow’s Merchant City festival back in 2015, and if this is anything to go by this, really should be an excellent event.

We are heading along on Sunday, as Picture House are taking over the arch for an exclusive screening of Steven Spielber’s The Adventures of TinTinThe boys will get a belgian waffle while Gim and I get to taste test the Heverlee Belgian beer for ourselves – I for one cannot wait – it should be so much fun.

The event certainly sound fun and there should be something available to suit everyone in the family,

Here is the promo video for the event – I for one cannot wait – who else is coming along?
