Psychedelic celebrations are already firmly established in the 90’s , here in our little Belgium..I started at the open air festivals of dance a Delic early 2000.
Which was a turning point in my choice of music and partying . It all started with the Oldschool sound that is well known. In the year 2003, the Full -On sound more emerged ( Melodic , And a lot of Israeli artists) . And it was a nice mix of both styles . Today, the Old School sound is still very poulair in Belgium . With Suntrip Records certainly known for their Melodic , Uplifting Goa -Trance , which brings you back to the old days . Also Greentree Records is one of the leading Psy -Trance Labels in our country . With many more releases and parties in the main stream Psychedelic Trance genre . They brought already nice Live Acts to Belgium.And ofcourse Dacru Records also gives great partys,more focused on FullOn Psychedelics . Also Internationally known for their artists and nice releases.And the Unio Mystica events are also worth a visit if you are in Belgium . They have parties in many styles and genres of Psychedelic Trance .
So something for everyone in our small country . With every weekend a party somewhere , so you will not get bored that’s for sure .The most partying is into smaller cozy remote locations.But sometimes it is not easy to find a location for Psychedelic partys ,and the police sometimes stops a party!Of course there are regular greater Mainstream partys, whit a lot of famous and upcoming international Live-Acts.And in the summertime we have a few Open Air Festivals in Belgium. But A Big Psytrance Festival from 4-5 days is still not possible in Belgium.
So tHATS iT nOWADAYS,,, hOPE 2 cu sometime on Belgium Playground.
Cheers , Sebidelica

Drugs is Illegal in Belgium.Always watch out. You can smoke on most partys but it is forbidden.You can have a small amount of weed in your possesion, but the police will always take it when they take you. There are not that many police controls on partys.Sometimes it can happen. If you are whit car & they stop you. you will have to do a Alcohol test, and if they think you used drugs they can do tests,and call a dokter for a blood test. which can cost you a lot of money. Always watch out if you drive on something. Better let a sober person drive after the party 😉

About the Author:
Dj Sebidelica is Steven Sebrechts. He started dj’ing in 2000 just as a hobby … using vinyl; ‘old skool’ style. “In the old days I mostly played elektro, techno and acid. I really liked the acid releases that came out these days. In 2001 I went to a dance-a-delic festival, and I heard psytrance for the first time. In those days the music was more filled with that acid sound, so i fell in love with psytrance immediately … and the crowd of course, gotta love’em. I really digged the locations of the psytrance-parties. It was love at first sight. I started collecting psytrance mostly from Psyshop and Kairoo records and switched from vinyl to cds eventually. Those days I mostly played @ afterpartys, birthdaypartys and small venues. A few years ago I joined Psysky Records and with these guys i played on several bigger parties in Belgium.In 2011 I joined Unio Mystica & from then it go’s verry smooth playing on many partys in Belgium,Holland and Thailand In 2013 they signed me to MUTAGEN RECS as Label-Dj based in London. Also giving the Unio Mystica Events Its a verry bissy time!!
