Belgium is a hotchpotch of several Western European cultures. The land itself is mainly divided into a Dutch-speaking Flanders and French-speaking Wallonia, with a German-speaking area and a not insignificant group of people of foreign origin, mainly from Italy, France, the Netherlands, Morocco and Poland. This diversification also continues in the Belgium music business, which - in addition to its national peculiarities - follows the music in the country, the traditions of the neighboring European countries and the rest of Western music.
The music in Belgium is delivered through the traditional channels. Radio and TV define mainstream music. Stores have recorded music of all genres for sale. Major festivals, hall performances, concerts, but also small-scale performances and club music give opportunity to witness the abundancy of live music.
