A real radio DJ ‘pur sang’ is probably one of the best ways to introduce Maarten Vancoillie. Born and raised in Belgium, he has been bitten by the radio microbe at a young age and is now considered as one of the most promising raising stars at that firmament.
After working for several radio stations, Maarten joined the commercial radio station Q in 2009. He started as a DJ during the early morning hours but soon joined the immensely popular morning show ‘Ornelis & Rogiers’ as an editor behind the scenes. In 2012 he replaced Kürt Rogiers as the second half of the show that got rebranded with his own name in 2014: 'Ornelis & Vancoillie'. A year later Sven Ornelis left his spot and Maarten got a new co-host Dorothee Dauwe. Since 2016 ‘Maarten & Dorothee’ are filling the prime-time evening spot every weekday from 4PM to 7PM.
During his spare time, Maarten chose to stand closer to his audience as a DJ-performer at various parties and events throughout the country. With his perfect serve of new hits and guaranteed floor fillers, he charms audiences of all ages. Maarten is confident on every stage and stays true to his own unconstrained style: a unique blend of passion for the music of today and tomorrow.
