At the end of August is rapidly approaching. That means that except for the summer holidays, the festival summer draws to an end. Music lovers can during the coming weekend at the last minute, however, still enjoy Laundry Day, that tomorrow will start on the Left bank in Antwerp. “With eight stages is our poster is very varied”, says co-organiser Wim Van der Borght.
The line-up is as usual a clever mix of genres, ranging from techno to hip-hop and drum’n’ bass. On the poster there are dazzling names of technogoden as Fritz Kalkbrenner, Jeff Mills and Booka Shade in addition to hiphophelden as Roméo Elvis, Nitrogen, Thecolorgrey and Tsar B.
Although the majority of the stages are linked to well known clubs such as Amps, Versuz and Café d’anvers, there is also one under the rule of the Dutch hiphoplabel Top Notch. That is the musical home of, among others, The Youth Of Today, Lil’ Small, and Brotherly. It is no coincidence that they present signs to the festival.
“Just like last year, we now work with a 360° cirkelopstelling. Geluidstechnisch is a feat that is unique in the festival world were made. The containers, which is loyal visitors may also will recognize from previous editions, a reference to Antwerp as a port city”, says the. The festival is very popular in their own city.
The cirkelopstelling will this year be supplemented by an additional stage, the Super 8 Social Club. “That zone is like a kind of grand café abroad. There is live music from emerging Belgian talent such as Sylvie Kreusch and Claire Laffut”, sounds.
In the daily life to keep everyone, best both feet on the ground, but not on Laundry Day. There are two ways to get to the festival from the sky. Just like last year, there is a ‘view point’, but in the middle of the circle is also a special attraction that festival-goers high and dry in the air tilt.
