Kollibri Asbl has announced the lineup of the 2024 edition of the family festival ‘Koll an Aktioun’ on 18 and 19 May at the unique site of the slate quarries of Haut-Martelange (Musée de l’Ardoise).

From music to children’s workshops, art expositions, creators’ markets and street performances, the Koll an Aktioun will have various activities for all ages.

Saturday's lineup includes the dynamic sounds of Belgian duo La Jungle, Cologne's “Coma” and the homegrown talent of Luxembourgish band Don Piano. It will be the day to attend for those wanting to dance late into the night.

Sunday brings rock headliners Annie Taylor, Collignon and “No metal in this battle”. Children will be able to discover Nikki Ninja & Afrobeathoven, John Happi and Cie One Shot. Local music aficionados can look forward to luk., Culture the kid, Hannah Ida, Neah Lone and many more.

The festival grounds will include a creator's market, museum tours and the whimsical carousel “Les fabuleuses aventures de Marquis De Quevilly”.

This year, the public will be able to determine their festival ticket price. The base cost for a daily ticket is €25, and the weekend ticket costs €40. Attendees can choose to contribute more if they can. Entrance for children and teenagers up to and including the age of fifteen is free.

According to the organisers, a festival involves extensive work and resources, totalling around €40 per day. This covers fees for artists, children's workshops, logistics, facilities, stage and sound materials. The organisers emphasised they wanted to ensure the best Koll experience possible. While setting a higher fixed price would have provided more financial stability, they noted they wanted to keep “culture accessible to all”. “We are a non-profit organisation with a passionate volunteer team”.
