The centerpiece of #HORST15 is Castra: a pavilion created by Robbrecht en Daem architecten & MOUTON housing the Red Bull Music Academy artists. It’s a pure translation of HORST’s search to gracefully combine arts with music and the castle surroundings. Together with respected architect and engineer Guy Mouton, Paul Robbrecht created a very basic yet very exceptional design.
The video gives an insight in the concept and design of Castra. DJ and tastemaker Lefto: “The pavilion will create an intimate space within the festival, resulting in a concentration of energy in between spectators and performers”.
‘Castra’ is currently being built. Upcoming Friday is the festive opening for the artpiece’s month long stay at the castle grounds.
HORST is a two-day festival championing a diverse and broad spectrum of electronic musicians, visual artists and young creatives at an ancient festival location. HORST presents 25 (inter)national artists, a mash-up of backgrounds and disciplines in a stunning castle surrounded by water and woods.

In 2014 HORST set foot with a sold out debut edition. 2015 will bring a well-selected collage of 40 (inter)national artists. Expect more art more music and more people without compromising the feel and identity of the festival.
