Alrick, 20:00

Alrick makes indie-pop/songwriter music in an intimate acoustic setting with influences from Ryan Adams, Radiohead and Phoebe Bridgers, among others. The musical project around Jens Dolleslagers is co-supported along with guitarist Dave Lantsoght and Stanzi Cresens. Jens has been singing/playing/making music since a young age and was born to be on a stage. With Alrick, he takes the audience into musical realms yet to be discovered.

Jens Dolleslagers (vocals, guitar, synths), Dave Lantsoght (guitar, synths), Stanzi Cresens (cello)

Batota, 21:30

Batota (translation; fraud/deception) is a young and exciting Belgian fourpiece brought together by Jolan De Caes (27) after a tragic incident in which he lost all his ambient tape recordings in the Ardennen. The band blends saudade, indie and subtle electronica, topped off with the phenomenal voice of frontwoman Brenda Rodriguez (57). Together with Siebe Chão (27) who lived in Argentina for thirty years to study Tango and Erkan Peyffers (27) who’s first air guitar appearance on festival Dour marked the beginning of his drumming career. They won Humo’s rock rally in 2023 and their success was assured.

Jolan Decaestecker (electronics, guitar), Erkan Peyffers (percussion), Siebe Chão (guitar, bass pedals), Brenda Rodriguez (vocals, FX)
