The European LGBTQI+ Choir Festival

from 24 to 28 June 2026

Coming to Brussels in 2026

5 days of concerts, 120 LGBTQI+ choirs, 4000 singers

Various Voices takes place every 4 years in a different European city and uses the power of singing to foster a more welcoming world with greater inclusion and solidarity.

With choirs coming from 20+ countries, each has its own culture and pop-rock repertoire to discover. From joint performances to intimate concerts, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.



Get involved in the festival

Various Voices is an opportunity for the LGBTQI+ community to celebrate our pride, raise our voices and make our hearts heard.

Various Voices is about sharing emotions with a range of audiences. For the LGBTQI+ choirs of Europe, it’s an opportunity to join together in song, to interact and to party the night away. But the rest of the city is welcome to join in, too!

Music is a universal language. Come and share in the joy of singing together as a communicative act, either at our public shows, or by taking part in activities where you can even sing with us yourself.

A fabulous team!

The festival is being organised by LGBTQI+ choir Sing Out Brussels! (The Fabulous Queer Choir), with the support of Legato.

Sing Out Brussels! is delighted to be hosting Various Voices in 2026. A passionate team of volunteers has been working to prepare the festival since 2020 when the bid process began.

To bring this large-scale project to life, we have built links with reliable partners and associations. So many people are working behind the scenes to make this event happen. Let’s meet them!
