Welcome to a haven of peace and calm at the CactusFestival site!

Do you want to take a relaxing break in between two concerts? At Cactus Oasis, your favorite hang-out spot on Saturday and Sunday, that’s not a problem! Snuggle up on the banks of the Lake of Love in one of our hammocks, enjoy a drink on the sunny terrace to completely unwind. Meanwhile, the kids can romp on Bolwerk‘s imaginative playground. Join the experience and have fun at Oasis!

Discover the installations at Cactus Oasis:

Creatool – Domino Drop
Use all the brain cells of the participants, communicate and work together to make it one big success. Will the domino drop or not? That is the question!


An animated open arena where participants can practice to their heart’s content. Every half hour you can also attend a micro-circus workshop.

Human Claw Machine
A hilarious variation on the familiar claw machines you can come across at any fairground. Those devices where you throw in coin after coin and then do your best to grab a stuffed animal or a watch with the help of a gripper. Okaaaay, let’s go!

A fixed value at Cactus Festival: a ‘bouncy castle’ made of giant balloons, better known as Playscape.

Productions en Zonen
Productions en Zonen performs theatre and creates concepts in many forms. Inspiring, atmospheric, audience-oriented, interactive, with a humorous undertone and a touch of poetry. At this year’s Cactus Festival, they will provide the mobile interventions Poetry Bathtub, Mirror Ball and Floss.


Hair salon OdeVie
With wacky play equipment comes wacky haircuts. Hair salon OdeVie will take care of you and your kids’ hair at Oasis.


In collaboration with Bolwerk.

cabane gitane hosted by BLVRD

At nightfall, the Cabane Gitane is opened up, a handy caravan with the appearance of a cozy living room, which will serve as a DJ booth. Together with the Bruges youth magazine BLVRD, we are inviting a fine collection of DJ’s and selectors to transform the Oasis terrace into a sultry dance floor on Saturday and Sunday night.

Saturday 13.07

la rosa 19:00-20:30

Young talent but already a regular at youth radio Villa Bota, La Rosa knows how to charm the Bruges audience, so she could not be missed on our dance floor. Expect a mixture of baile to brazilian funk, ghettohouse and techno.


ennaw 20:30-22:00

As DJ, producer and founder/resident of Bruges-based party concept Club Stout, Ennaw knows better than anyone how to get the dance floor moving. Inspired by jazz, house, minimal and techno, his sets feature the grooviest tunes. He has been behind the decks at Livingroom808, Chinastraat, Who's Driving, Campo Solar and even went international in several clubs in Switzerland.


slomo sean 22:00-00:00

A founding member of the 'Chineurs de Belgique crew', Slomo Sean is an all-rounder. Often lost in the best record shops or in the depths of the internet, he is constantly on the lookout for new releases and old rarities. With his very specific musictaste, he has turned his diversity into his strength, not hesitating to go from techno to drum & bass or exploring the wonders of experimental music.


Sunday 14.07

offtherecordclub 19:00-20:30

Started from the bottom, now they're definitely here. This DJ duo worked their way up nicely into solid party starters, quietly distinguishing themselves with a selection that transcends the boundaries of musical genres. To create their sound, they draw inspiration from hip-hop, R&B, amapiano, house and breakbeat, among others. They produce an energetic mix with peaks and lulls, from a slow groove to uptempo beats with everything in between.


jaegher 20:30-22:00

Jaegher provides a wide selection of records from all levels of the electronic landscape. Electro, world, disco, house, italo garage, breaks, you name it. Variety is key!


catalina 22:00-00:00

Catalina cemented her place in the Belgian electronic music scene through sonic combinations of breaks, leftfield electro and heavy UKG. She has made a name for herself, with residencies on the airwaves of Bruzz and Kiosk Radio, by exploring the chemistry between deconstructed, percussive tempos and aquatic melodies, while borrowing elements from her musical influences in the UK. Her sets demonstrate a technical ability to transcend genres, focusing on the experimental and upbeat side of electronic music and teleporting dance floors further into the stratosphere and beyond.
