Just like last year the URB festival is cancelled due to the corona pandemic. But instead of doing nothing we changed our plans.
The designers of the original ACHbar, the outdoor festival site for URB 2020, Jason Slabbynck and Lukas Proot, transformed their plans into a pavilion. The Anything Can Happen bar became an octagonal monument. A contemporary eye-catcher, right next to a historic institution. An ode to the festival that never happend. A tribute to youth creativity, which had to hibernate for too long.
Het Entrepot hereby concludes a two-year process. But don’t let this pass by just like that. The URB Memorial Pavilion is a symbol of exuberance, parties, artistic extravagance and total freedom. It’s a silent testimony to an abandoned festival site. And a heart under the belt for all young people, who have had to put away their wild plans for more than a year The URB Memorial Pavilion is, above all, an honorary salute for youth creativity.
