    Saturday 19 July 21u30 - 23u00 USA

    Sometimes it is better to shut up and let things do their own talking. In the case of these toppers from East LA this is very much the case. Forty years on the road catapulted this band into the absolute world top, and you must have live deep in the jungle not to be able to cite at least ten of their hits off the cuff.
    The Wolves were our guests for the first time ten years ago in 1993, and twelve years later they joined us again and twice they knocked everybody over in our tent. That they could not be lacking at this year’s party is sheer logic. Their thrilling musical oeuvre meanwhile smoothly covers twenty records and their life reputation is known worldwide. Whether they go for straightforward roots-rock or dive deep into their norteno-roots, whether they choose to go experimental such as in their Latin Playboys project or just shoot off their “Greatest Hits” at us, we know for sure that we will all go into the night singing and dancing. This really is not “just another Band from East LA”, this is absolute world top class, combining hits with unequalled originality.

    Monday 21 July 20u00 - 21u15 BE

    Today is our national holyday and we cannot finish it better than with a few strong Belgian acts.
    Admiral Freebee, alias Tom Van Laere was here already in 2005 and 2010 and twice he succeeded effortless in convincing even the most sceptical visitors. Following the arithmetic series, the Admiral should only have to make his appearance next year, but what do you want? The man just released a very nice new CD, and we could not resist the call of “The Great Scam”, as the record is named. Seldom was the title of a record chosen worse. No scam at all, on the contrary: raw rock songs with an undiluted blues feeling: that is what is presented here. An absolute welcome return of one of our better songwriters.

    Friday 18 July 19u00 - 19u45 BE

    In these hectic soccer times, kick-off must be given by people who aren’t really impressed by hectic events anymore. That is the reason why the starting salvo of our thirtieth edition is given by Rusty Roots, the pride of Peer that recently gave birth of a fabulous fourth CD, produced by Mario Goossens (Triggerfinger). “Your Host” made it to “Album of the Week” on Radio 1 and was also elsewhere showered with honours. Perfectly deserved, since the growth of the group towards raw, uncut roots-rock is quite impressive, with a scent of Stones in it, a pinch of Black Crowes, a sprinkling of Neil Young, but especially loads of Rusty Roots.
