As a result, Brussels By Night Federation has launched a petition to raise awareness of the issue and to urge the government to take action to support the nightlife industry. According to the council, the nightlife industry has suffered a lot due to the pandemic, with many nightclubs being forced to close permanently. The situation has been especially challenging for the Fuse nightclub, which has been a vital part of Brussels' nightlife scene since its inception in 1994.
Fuse has played an essential role in shaping the city's cultural identity, and it has hosted many international DJs over the years. The club is also known for its exceptional sound system and its dedication to promoting electronic music in Brussels.
The Brussels Night Council is calling on the government to provide financial support to nightclubs and to recognize them as a crucial part of the city's cultural heritage. The council believes that nightclubs should receive the same level of support as other cultural institutions, such as museums and theaters. In conclusion, we are working hard to save the Fuse nightclub and to ensure that nightclubs are recognized as an integral part of Brussels' cultural landscape. The council is urging the government to take action to support the nightlife industry and to recognize the vital role that nightclubs play in shaping the city's identity.
