Campus Argenteuil, Waterloo – 26 May 2018 – from 12pm


RECYCLING: Give Music a Chance is the simple, but powerful, slogan of Music Fund, a humanitarian organization which collects and repairs used musical instruments, and donates them to music schools in developing countries and conflict areas. 


SUSTAINABILITY: Music Fund opens repair workshops and trains repair technicians locally, so that its partner-projects can ensure that the music instruments are kept in good condition, while people are given a trade to practice and teach. 


A CHARITY MUSIC FESTIVAL –  Waterloo Sessions, a non-profit organization, invites you to a family-friendly, charity music festival at the beautiful Campus Argenteuil in Waterloo, Belgium.  CHILDREN UNDER 12 ENTER FOR FREE.


All profits from the festival will go to support Music Fund’s work in Congo.
