Huize Maas Main by Rockpalast // 22:00 - 22:40

The Vices present a contrasting mix of Britpop and surf rock. Imagine Cage The Elephant and The Strokes having a love-child who possesses a live-energy that recalls the early Chili Peppers.

Machinefabriek // 23:15 - 00:00

Banji is an indie pop act from Utrecht. Consisting of four fresh-smelling guys, this project is dripping with funky wonky beats and synths that go 'woimp'. Plus the necessary catchy choirs and a combined love for R&B, alternative pop and hip-hop.
