Longing Disco at the Lonely Hearts Club Bar

Nick Fox

6 November 2021
22:00 — 23:00


Location: Het Huis Bar

Late Night Event at the IMPAKT Bar //

Ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn’t have fallen in love with? Ever been left heartbroken, not knowing what to do next, and played a record over and over again? Your lovelorn record and lovesick stories can become part of the Longing Disco: a unique event staged by artist Nick Fox at the IMPAKT Festival.

The Longing Disco is a live art event shaped by the people taking part. Each song at the Longing Disco has a unique story to tell. Participants anonymously request the song most connected to personal stories that chronicle blissful courtship, tragic romances, unrequited loves, displacement, loss, hopes and dreams. You are invited to anonymously share with us the songs that evoke your most powerful memories of love and the stories connected to them. We’ll be playing these songs at the Lonely Hearts Club Bar every night of the festival, and on Saturday 6 November they’ll be the centre of the Longing Disco, an evening of music, dance and desire inspired by the emotional spectrum of love and longing.

To become part of the Longing Disco, send us your request through this form. Please include:

  • Song title
  • Artist
  • Short story behind your song choice 
  • Optional: image representing your story to display at the disco

All submissions will be treated anonymously and you can share your song with us even if you’re not attending the event. 

Submit your love song

The event is free, but make sure to register to attend the disco. If you have a day pass you can make a ‘seat’ reservation to attend the disco
