- What’s new at Groezrock 2016?
– There will be no Macbeth stage this year, which means no competition BUT, it doesn’t mean the event will be missing a stage; as former Macbeth will become the Watch Out Stage.
– Pricing has changed little. Details : http://www.groezrock.be
- Why we do think you should go :
– Dude, how many times a year do you get to see Saosin and Pup during the same weekend in Mainland Europe? That’s what we thought.
– Rancid, period. You punks.
– The Movielife are back, do you really want to miss out on that? (Spoiler : You don’t. He’s why : The Movielife || Future Feeling (Afraid of Drugs))
– Who doesn’t want to witness Jason Butler climbing on things outdoors?
– Who doesn’t want to fall in love with tons of new music in a mere 48hours?
– We could keep this going for hours but we won’t, don’t worry.
That’s all for now, stay tuned for more updates!
