These are exciting times to live in, especially if you’re a fan of alternative music. On Friday 29 June and Saturday 30 June, Antwerp will be the stage for a brand new festival featuring national and international bands playing Punk, Hardcore, Post-rock, Shoegaze, emo and everything in between!


What do you think about NYC hardcore og’s Cro-Mags and the equally legendary Cali post-rock outfit This Will Destroy You?

Killer up and comers?

Ofcourse! From San Francisco we have Epitaph Records signed and frequent WAVVES collaborating young guns Culture Abuse. Everyone’s favourite UK label Big Scary Monsters is sending over a trio of crazy talented UK punks with Kamikaze Girls, Gender Roles and Cassels!

That’s cool, but what about locals?

We’ve got you covered! Local boys Newmoon will be joining in on the fun as well so expect some loud and mesmerising shoegaze.

The festival will be dropping even more names in the next few weeks so keep an eye open for more goodness!
