It all began in March 2006 when Catherine Blaise, at the time organizer of small Liège parties and Mathieu Fonsny, who had just returned from a long and intensive internship at the prestigious Parisian editorial Les Inrockuptibles, decided to reinvent the nights of Liège, their Belgian Burning City.
In the first year, names such as Boys Noize, Surkin, Uffie or TTC were on display at the evening parties of the two Liège residents. Little by little, the name Forma.T penetrates into the most pointed circles and goes beyond the borders of small Belgium.
In July 2007, Forma.T was also entrusted by the prestigious Dour festival with the programming of a full night. The people of Liège agree with Justice, Erol Alkan and the whole Ed Banger clique. More than 6000 people crowded under the large Forma.T tent. Forma.T is now joined by three, since Olivier Leidgens (Francofolies de Spa) brings his knowledge of events to the amateur couple. Building on the success of the previous year, the Forma.T stage in Dour is now part of the festival: Boys Noize, Sebastian or Surkin in 2008, Diplo, Rusko, L-Vis 1990 in 2009.
In 2008, the famous Mecca of electronic music, the Fuse, has also courted the Liège collective. The success is total: between 1000 and 1500 parties at each month.
Forma.T also had its Parisian residence a year later at the Social Club. In Liege, the celebration continues its course, with as an annual ceremony, in the form of a mini festival, of the collective’s birthday (3500 people in Happy in 2009).
But Forma.T is also part of a graphic history that the graffiti artist RVO (member of another Liège collective, Partyharders) strives to symbolize and singularize through his skilfully created drawings. These graphic designs have given rise to new collaborations such as by the clothing and headphones brand WESC, Eastpak and Quiksilver.
