The 00's: a new wave takes the stage

After the somewhat dull and uninspiring 90’s a new wave of rock bands was ready to take the stage  in 2000, including Ozark Henry, Dead Man Ray, Novastar, Daan, Stash, Millionaire, Flip Kowlier and Zornik. Around 2005, we saw Absynthe Minded, Gabriel Rios, Milow, Sioen, Admiral Freebee, Das Pop, The Black Box Revelation and Triggerfinger stood up. Many of them have ever won Humo's Rock Rally, or at least reached the final. They sometimes experienced success abroad and stood on the stage at Rock Werchter and Pukkelpop.

In Wallonia, it was mainly French artists that scored hits. Yet Bands like Puggy and Ghinzu did well in the south of the country. Dance act Milk Inc. continued to score hits and developped their fanbased audience into a commercial success. The girl group K3, which in the late 90s, the intention was to be a kind of Flemish Spice Girls, scored particularly with young children (and their parents).

An important factor in the spread of popular music were the televised talent shows such as Idol and X Factor. Natalia, Hadise, Sandrine and Tom Dice had a reasonable success after their performance in such TV programs.

Kate Ryan had several European dance hits, often with covers of famous French songs. In the techno genre the festival “I Love Techno” grew into an event with thousands of visitors. Some DJs like Marco Bailey and Yvesderuyter established themselves. In the dance genre a festival with the name Tomorrowland had instant success.
