Did you know that Leuven is the birthplace of the Big Bang Theory? In 1931, Georges Lemaître introduced his revolutionary theory of the primaeval atom and the expanding universe. And it rocked the world of science to its core. It’s no small wonder then that Leuven has made the Big Bang the theme of its sensational city festival.
We'll be igniting our very own world-shattering cultural Big Bang in the autumn of 2021. BANG! sucks you into a sensory journey through how the Big Bang continues to inspire art and science today. Enjoy music, exhibitions, events, and everything that makes life BANG! exciting!
