Raw punk/garage noise from Ghent city. Their debut full length LP Nerve Endings (PNKSLM Recs) received a lot of positive reviews from all over the globe. For years, they’ve been known for their wild and intense live shows.
Tristan is the new project of Belgian vocalist and composer Isolde Van den Bulcke, which she would describe as ambient jazz. A fusion of Lianne La Havas, Boards of Canada and Wayne Shorter.
Dare to take the deep dense ’n dark road and let LA MONEY transcend you into her world o’ magical mystery. ‘Cause when you follow the money, you’ll never know where the fuck it’ll take ya.
Simon Segers rarely does anything other than playing the drums. He beats his way through time and space, effortlessly filling every corner of the Saint-Jacobs Church.
STADT is organic and unrestrained. There is room for experiments and songs, ‘new’ and ‘raddled’ are shameless next to each other. Their concerts are a form of space tourism where both the swooner and the headbanger get their take.
Janne Vanneste brings an intimate interpretation of her newly founded band Monskopoli: with only a Russian EM-25 and her voice, she will bring the environment to ‘higher realms’. What better place than the campfire for this spacey and intimate set?
A platform where all the musical projects of Laurens Schnurrbart Marien come together. He categorizes his songs from instrumental to cheesy, pop to noise, hard to soft, shit, minimal, atmospheric… Every show will be a try-out. Expect dark & gloomy, noise & roomy.
The inspiring project of Lander Gyselinck (LAB Trio, Stuff.) and Fulco Ottervanger (De Beren Gieren, Stadt). Their debut EP is an untitled volume full of wonderfully orchestrated chaos, brusque drum excesses and surprising synth-utterances. Long live the ‘Suikerbeat’!
With the floating atmosphere of the unknown and the unexpected hits of concentrated emotion, the blood- brother duo Peenoise takes a trip on experimental yet minimal guitar and synth.
This countertenor will surprise you with his heavenly voice while you take a look at the numerous artworks in the Saint Jacob’s Church.
Solo project of Pieter De Wilde (drums for Raketkanon) who finds his inspiration in dark electronica and hiphop.
Technopoetry is a phrase we’d like to coin with this collective. Nymphonic Orchestra will bring you some dark techno while poetry is being incorporated in some crazy visuals. Music: Stijn Vanmarsenille and Brent Vanneste; Visuals: Thomas Delbeke; Words: Sarah Veders.
FUTURE OLD PEOPLE ARE WIZARDS
A band from Gent with Stijn Vanmarsenille on guitar and vocals. Nele De takes on the bass, but instead of going for the classic bass guitar, the bass sounds are created by some brutal synths. Responsibility for the drum lines lies with Sylvester Vanborm.
TTN dark DJs
A strange fascination for all things dark binds veteran dj Thang, party don Tjon and musical brain Francois De Meyer. Inspired by the left field scene and with a luid-vuil-traag undertone, you can describe TTN as dirty, dark and sexy.
DRUMS ARE FOR PARADES
“We first had a physics discussion group, and then it turned into a band. Don’t know why.”
THE GURU GURU
Since 2012, The Guru Guru have been happily dealing in Borderline Rock. Live, they are a must see. With energy gushing from the stage, singer Tom balances on the verge of theatrical psychosis.
The fantastic simplicity of two gentlewomen, two gentlemen and their captivating yet smudgy Shaman-resonance. The music delivers a frisking rustle, veiled by an oppressively dark sample-web.

As a living sculpture, with her hyper trained body and super toned muscles, DOLLY reaches beyond the limits of human life into the animal, digital, hybrid, enhanced and heavenly.
