Zephyrus Records is 15 years old! They celebrate this with a festive label night full of live music and special acts. 

At Ha’fest they hijack the first evening with a number of top artists from their stable. It will be an explosive label night in a festive festival jacket, with no less than two album presentations by Black Flower and Palenque Matongé.

Zephyrus Records

For 15 years, Zephyrus Records has been supporting artists and music groups that challenge musical box thinking and blur cultural boundaries. Rooted in Ghent and with an international outlook, they have supported locally, and more recently also international talent with Belgian roots.
