It rocks, the feasts, it improvises, convinces, it's different, it knows to blow off the roof and it creates chaos ... That's exactly what "AR!E "stands for!
With the motto "Live everything is different" and armed with a Rock 'n Roll bus packed with guitars, amps and drums they have a history of more than 18 years of touring in the Netherlands and Belgium. And one can say with conviction: "AR!E came, AR!E saw and AR!E conquered'! Whether the gentlemen play in a pub or a mega party, it does not matter ... Not only the roof, but also the façade, will be blown off!
AR!E does not just guarantee a huge party ... With all their musical knowledge, creativity and love for rock & party they know exactly what the perfect show looks like: the beech of recognition should be there! AR!E is not afraid of improvisation, no show is the same and with unexpected medleys, mash-ups, fast changes between songs and a high interaction level they achieve a steaming party every time!
(Rock) songs from the years ' 60, ' 70, ' 80, ' 90 and now, but also dance-hits, everything will pass along at a high rate! AR!E is not comparable to many others, AR!E is an individual as a group that likes to share it's enthusiasm on stage with everyone else,AR!E is. ....AR!E !
AR!E was previously associated with Ruud de Wild at Q-Music, played in many party tents, halls, small pubs and festivals and shared the stage with, among others, BZB, WORK Experience, The Dirty Daddies, Rattlesnake Shake, Pater Moeskroen and The Heinoos!
ART FELIXX is a new and upcoming Dutch pop-artist. After a couple of years as the frontman of Monks Avenue (ex 3FM Serious Talent) it was time for Arthur Wils to go his own way. He started writing songs under the name ‘Art Felixx’, inspired by current popartists as Maroon5, One Republic and Gavin DeGraw.
With 3 single releases and a brand new EP, Art Felixx has put themselves firmly on the map in the past year. With more than 700,000 streams on Spotify, performances with (a.o.) Roodshow (Radio2), Muziekcafé (Radio2), 2017 is already a great year for this in Tilburg-based artist!
Art brings American-oriented pop songs driven by catchy melodies and strong hooks. A high dose of dancing energy and charismatic performance provide a dynamic and fresh show.
Four quasi-ideal sons-in-law and their guitar player, met at the ArtEZ Conservatory in Enschede. They make easy-to-the-ear pop songs in the beat tradition of the 60 's, with the energy of Franz Ferdinand. Their five-part harmony vocals is reminiscent of The Beatles and The Beach Boys.
The band was formed in the fall of 2014 by songwriter and frontman Frederick Christ. They played already at various stages such as Abdallah, metropolis and the Booster Festival. On the Booster Festival was their first EP ' V ' released. The band is currently working on her second EP. This EP will be released on February 25, 2018 in the small Hall of Hedon.
BandaBordel is a Gypsy Punk Super Group, consisting of members of BandàpArt & QUEL BORDEL!
These five musicians have sold their souls to rock. They all share the same love for music, which gives them a near perfect on-stage chemistry. No wonder that Barking Bruce can call themselves the best cover band of the Benelux, after winning the Clash Of The Coverbands.
The reward: a full schedule and their very own single, Lena. The band was founded from the former members of Fast Forward and 10tation, two groups from the North of the province of Antwerp, that have build quite a name for themselves for their live performances. They’ve passed on this tradition with Barking Bruce. Grunge, punkrock, hiphop, it’s all well represented in their repertoire, thanks to a solid drummer (Kris Van Meel), a nimble bass player (Guy Roelands), two dynamic guitarists (Hans Doomen and Paul de Kooning), and last, but certainly not least, a extraordinary vocalist with a distinct and exceptional voice (Jef Broes). Classics and hits are part of the setlist, but the band’s known for their interpretations of hidden gems as well.
Begz is existsing for almost 8 years. The past years they have been able to perform on lots of Dutch stages as an allround coverband. But there is an end to everything. Within a short amount of time a couple of people left Begz and that was the moment to change directions. The remaining members had a desire to focus more on Funk- and Soulmusic. And with the neccesary replacements, this desire will be pursued.
After 7 years of Rock and Pop, the band really found the Funk and Soul. With new members and new repertoire the band started a comeback-tour, to celebrate the new Begz. We hope to see you!
There is this place – an everyone probably has one somewhere – that emits a magical aurora. You don’t exactly know why but you always find your way back to it. It is a place full of secrets and even if you think you know everything, small moments happen which surprise you. And for this there are two possibilities, maybe even more. You curse this place for it’s unbearable attraction. For how it fascinates people and manipulates them. For how they throw away their own lives and become sick. A facade, a lie…hypocritical. Or you fall in love with it and it becomes the love of your life. The best thing that ever happened to you, the best decision you ever made is to stay there because you can be happy and free…like you always wanted. It is some kind of paradise for the spirit and heart. A paradise…or hell?

After founding the band in March 2014 the work of the five musicians Graeme Salt, Robert Meinel, Marcel Behrens, Mathias Wagner and Marvin Jiménez emerged pretty quickly. A fan base grew vastly in the first few weeks which supported the band in what they did. The summertime brought numerous gigs in clubs, bars and festivals. The band released their debut EP ‘All For The Good’ in September 2014 and produced a professional music video to the title track.
The sound of the band is influenced by different genres, such as Indie, Alternative and Post Rock and creates a profound atmosphere which appeals especially in the bands live performances. Playful, tender guitars, profound drums and bass combined with Graeme’s sonorous vocals yield impressive dynamics within the songs.
