Rockfreaks.net to host 10th Anniversary / Summer Fest

Posted by TL on 13/06/13

If you've been keeping an eye on our facebook you should already know this, but in case you haven't, our site is turning 10 years old this year, and to celebrate, we're throwing a 1-day Summer Fest at BETA, Copenhagen on August 10th.

- but do read on, as I quote PP's words in our official press release:


The festivities will take place between 2 PM and 2 AM both inside BETA and outside on the plaza, where we've taken steps to create a festival-like atmosphere throughout the day. Key Rockfreaks.net staff have used our extensive experience and knowledge of the music scene to hand-pick five Danish bands from different genres that best represent their respective styles of music, who will be showcased in the intimate locale of BETA, while outdoors will feature a Louisiana style BBQ, a swimming pool, an outdoor bar, Rockfreaks.net DJs playing our favorite songs from the past decade in all genres, and much more (to be announced in the coming weeks). This day is about more than just live music, so we've ensured that there is plenty of space between each band to sit outside and enjoy the sun, the beer, the BBQ, and good company.




As for the live entertainment, we're proud to reveal Danish metalcore band CONTRITION as the first band in our lineup, who will represent the metal scene to coincide with Copenhell's Danish metal/warm-up day. CONTRITION excel in writing dark, intense metalcore with a progressive and experimental washing; a ferocious mix of stylistic influence ranging from Lamb of God and Gojira to Miss May I and Sylosis. We’ve picked this quintet first and foremost because in a relatively short period of time, they have established themselves as the flagbearers of the metalcore genre in Denmark – not least by virtue of an always tight and hugely confrontational live performance brimming with the sort of explosive energy that we are used to seeing from much more established foreign acts. If they keep at it, CONTRITION have much and more to look forward to in terms of a successful career, and with such promise showing already on their debut album ”Reflections”, we have absolutely no hesitations about having these boys represent the metal aspect of our event.


Four more main acts (+ special guests) will be announced in the coming weeks, each of which will represent one or more of the following styles of music:


HARDCORE

SLUDGE

POST-HARDCORE

ALTERNATIVE ROCK

INDIE

PUNK ROCK


We're also happy to announce that the first sponsor for the event is:
