This Paradise City takes you into the historic setting of Kasteel de Ribaucourt in Belgium for a weekend of electronic underground beats. The venue, a beautiful 15th century castle in the city of Perk, is just outside Brussels (and right next to the international airport!).
Paradise City runs for 3 days, with a mix of the finest DJs and live acts that will bring you the warmer side of electronic music. Some of them are famous DJs and don't need introductions, others are young talents and require your curious ears to explore.
With the breathtaking view of the castle and with special energy, Paradise City is a sanctuary that explores what a great future can look like, a place that encourages diversity, where conversation and inspiration can blossom, and where meaningful encounters take place.
Steenokkerzeel is a municipality located in the Belgian province of Flemish Brabant. The municipality comprises the towns of Melsbroek, Perk and Steenokkerzeel proper.
Ribaucourt castle was built originally in the 12th century, but it was just a fortitied wooden tower. The lords of Perk expanded the castle and it was in possession of several South Brabant noble families. During the French occupation in 1809 the French officer Pieter Bounder of Melsbroek bought the castle. He sold the castle in 1833 to Count Prosper Christyn de Ribaucourt, senator of Dendermonde. The current Count Daniël de Ribaucourt is still Lord of Perk.
The castle is considered as one of the most beautiful of the Brussels area. It counts more than 200 rooms and was modernized by it owners throughout the centuries. The current castle largely dates back to the 17th, 18 and 19th century. The park is 90ha and consists of meadows, forest and ponds. It is a real nature and bird sanctuary.
The castle is private domain but you can view it from the public road and on rare locations there are walks organized in the park.
