Welcome on my ‘roof’.
ROOF gives artists a roof as a stage to tell their stories.
If you follow me on top you will get a beautiful (over)view of our best Belgian artists. A wide landscape of upcoming talents, rising stars or the ones you’re already fond of provide you of an awesome music blend.
Since I am not great at creating powerful sounds myself or reach high with my voice I share my Belgian favourites who can.
I’ll make sure you’ll get your funny, mindblowing stories to digest with some good music, beats and interesting personalities.
