Jera On Air 2018

Jera On Air is a nice, cosy and kick ass two day punk and hardcore festival in the rural town of Ysselsteyn located in the Limburg province of The Netherlands. The year 2018 brings the 26th edition of this punk rock banger and to sum it up, this year’s line-up is basically off the charts.


But more on that later, first let’s have a look at what bang your buck will bring with a Jera On Air weekendpass. Two days of punkrock, hardcore and metalcore located in an idealic setting surrounded by eager punks who are ready to kick of the summer vacation. Because let’s admit it, we’ve all missed Groezrock this year and let’s face it, we haven’t had a proper opening to the festival season yet so far.


So in 2018 Jera On Air is the place to be if you’re on the edge of getting two months away from school. And for the working folks, that moment when you feel that yearly vacation creeping up but still so far away.  Maybe Jera On Air might be just what  you need to refresh yourself for those final weeks of counting down. Hell, it might even be better than your vacation… Actually it’s more like three day as Jera On Air also hosts a small camping pre festival on Thursday 28th of June, but the main course still remains two rocking day on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th of June.


Two massive tents with killer stages will have you hopping back and forth to catch all the bands playing and it doesn’t stop there. There’s also the cosy Punbrockbar if you feel for more of a clubfeel. Or what about the refreshing beergarden at the festival that serves plenty of delicious special beers and of course their signature Jera On Air beer, brewed especially for the weekend. Throw in a walhalla foodcourt serving everyone’s taste from fresh charred beef burgers on the grill to vegan delights and much more and your set for a punkrock gourmet weekend. Side animation is provided by signing sessions where you can have a short chat  with your favorite artists and get their autograph or a picture. And for those that like to get active the Dutch Stagediving Championships may provide a relief, as you can jump of the stage onto an airpillow will performing your signature stagedive moves.


But the main recipe for a succesfull Jera On Air remains the amazing line-up featuring bands such as Sick Of It All, Terror, Anti Flag and Dutch punk legends  I Againstt I, who have recently reunited, are all playing on Friday.


The saturday brings us NOFX, Less Than Jake, Underoath, even a Swedish invasion by Satanic Surfers and No Fun At All. Or what about Dog Eat Dog who will get the whole festival jiving to their smooth saxophones. Ysselsteyn will be shaking to it’s core.


The Jera is also a rune sign meaning as a sort of ancient blessing for a good harves. Well in that case Jera On Air must mean a supermoon harvest of bands looking at this year’s line-up.


See you all soon in an Ysselsteyn field to ‘officially’ kick of the summer of 2018.




Sjock Festival 2018

At the beginning of summer, a small Belgium town in the ‘Stille Kempen‘ is not so quit any longer. Hordes of raging Rockabilly fans, Punks, Metalheads and many more music loves have found the path to this three day celebration of all things rocking in the lovely town of Gierle.

Kicking off the 43st edition of Sjock festival, this years edition is packed with legendary bands, up and coming talent and of course the overall chill vibes that Sjock festival has become known for.

On Friday the 6th of July Sjock festival commences the celebrations with more of a welcoming evening programme to get the weekend started. A diverse line-up focused featuring artists such as Rev. Horton Heat and The Bronx may set the pace for the days to follow.

On Saturday a full on festival day begins and will have the visitors of Sjock running from left to right to catch all the great acts on the roster. A few of the must see’s that day include Californian proto punks Dead Kennedy‘s and the Scandinavian dragqueens from hell Turbonegro that will get Gierle rockin’ and rolling all night long.

But the piece de resistance must be the Sunday line-up with a few bands that the punk kids can eat their heart out too. At least four long lasting punk outfits will destroy the Sjock stage on Sunday ranging from the most handsome vocalist in punk, Blag Dahlia from The Dwarves to the smartest punk around, Milo of Descendents and let us not forget the epic sing a long that Pennywise never travels without or what about some Swedish cool from No Fun At All.

A diverse line-up featuring all kinds of rock’n roll in a stunning scenery accompanied by Belgian beer and hopefully sweet summer weather. What more could you wish for to start your summer?
