REVIEW: Brakrock Ecofest 2016 AKA our own Punkrock Holliday

Brakrock ecofest in Duffel AKA our own Punkrock Holliday was again a fine outdoor punk rock experience. The nice green setting, a park area in between a river and a castle ruin, at the ‘Ter Elstlei’ in Duffel, Belgium offers a great hangout for punk rock minded people on a nice summers day.

Like Ieperfest (B), Brakrock is an eco-minded festival that pays attention to their ecological footprint when it comes to use of space, materials, water, energy, catering (although I prefer my coca cola to be the real thing and not that fair trade sugar liquid), waste, … A real example for a lot of festivals.

This years line up was great with bands as Strung Out, A Wilhelm Scream, The Dwarves, The Flatliners, Adolescents, Mean Jeans and many more resulting in a bigger crowd that came to Duffel this year. but this friendly DIY punk rock festival still has some growing pains: they could use some more lights when it is dark and an extra bar would be great. Also I hope it never rains during Brakrock because its a fine way to spent your summer holliday.

Here are a few lousy pics:

Sorry Bearded Punk Records but this band could not convince me with their live performance … it sounded so out of tune at times.20160806_184548
