Behind The Scenes

Rock Zerkegem

What does it feel like just days before the festival you are organising? Curiosity is a beautiful thing; it’s what makes us grow, think and incites us to try new things. To satisfy our members’ curiosity about the partners Subbacultcha works with, we’ll be featuring one of our partners every month. This month that’s Jonas Messelier, Promotor for Psych Over 9000, Rock Zerkegem and Purple Panda.

This edition will be our 10th edition. Our collaboration with Subbacultcha has been going strong for four years now. Rock Zerkegem is a DIY festival, it’s back to basics. Great bands, cheap beer and good vibes,  surrounded by cows and grass, somewhere deep inside the polders. The concept is quite simple; we always pick a cool headliner from the psychedelic garage scene, preferably a great US band. This edition we have White Fang and The Memories but we also welcome Le Villejuif Underground from Paris and The roaring 420s from Dresden.

This is Fien Meelberghs drawing this years poster. She works at Dift – Dok Noord as a graphic designer and is Jonas’ girlfriend. They met when Jonas was looking around for someone to design the poster.

Decoration on point.

In order to make sure nothings get stolen, we sleep on the terrain.
This year it’s Pieter-Jan’s turn.

Had a bad night while sleeping in the car but almost there.

The solo promo team from last year. Really cheap and efficient.
