Why did you set a maximum number of participating choirs?

The festival team wants to limit the maximum number of participating choirs to 120. This number takes into account the experience of previous festivals: 90 choirs were present in Munich in 2018 and 105 in Bologna in 2023. Welcoming more choirs to Brussels means hiring more venues to be able to plan all the groups, with a direct impact on the festival budget. Choirs benefiting from the Support Programme are guaranteed a place at the festival. Once the number of 120 choirs is reached, we will set up a waiting list, so that one choir can be added to the list, in the event another choir cancels its participation.
