During the late 90s, Tijs Vandenbroucke was involved in the organisation of several Ghent-based party concepts – Rendez-Fou was one of the best-known at that time. Shortly afterwards he got to know Mathias Kerckhof, the founder of Kozzmozz and to whom he would supply bar crew at every one of his parties. At a certain moment, Mathias and Tijs joined forces, resulting in the foundation of Nasty Mondays bvba. Over the years, more concepts were added to their resumé: a wide range of concepts and events with different music styles, from techno to urban, and rock ’n’ roll to drum ’n’ bass, with a total of +/- 70 productions per year. Nowadays Tijs is CEO at Nasty Mondays bvba, CEO at Magique Belgique bvba (Cirque Magique festival) , co-owner at The Resistance bvba (Voltage Festival), COO at The Ark NV (cruise festival) and Managing Partner at First In Line bvba (staffing company).
