20:00 | Stadt can be considered the "grand cru" of the music scene in Ghent, and their steady climb keeps on going strong. As a liveband they are unmatched (no small feat considering the amount of quality live bands in the area). And what's more: the success of Stadt is the result of their authenticity and musical craftmanship. They are a bunch of headstrong artists who march to the beat of their own drum – averse to trends and hypes, without any crass commercialism and accepting no compromise. In short: a band that will delight the world for many years to come! The new album 'Escalators' by STADT will be released in October. It's another elusive and literally indescribable piece of work, but the musical experiments and layered arrangements never obscure the solid songwriting. You could even say that 'Escalators' has its moments of supreme catchiness in all its eccentricity!
20:00 | The mighty Land of Voodoo was founded by guitarist Pieter De Busschere, who lives in Ghent, Belgium. To rule over Voodooland he needed some help and reached out to Brent Pauwels on the bass, Harm Pauwels on the drums, Arne Bogaert on the guitar and Andrea Roegiers on the keys and tambourine. Now, they bring a fuzzy mix of uptempo garage/psych.
