Rotterdam(NL)-Zuiderpark-10 September 2016

17 September 2016 by HBLS team

More than 9.000 people gathered in Zuiderpark, Rotterdam (NL) to enjoy good music, tasty food and great company to the max. So yes this edition of Baroeg Open Air Festival was a great succes and the excellent Indian Summer weather circumstances were a bonus. Plus where do you find a festival with free entrance these days? Its rare, but BOA Festival does. BOA Festival is unique in its own way by having the classic alternative, punky, underground attitude and vibe and above all a very relaxed atmosphere, which attracted a diverse and loyal crowd and even included families with little kids who know how to rock their diapers. There were 3 different stages: Large Main Stage, Electronic Stage and Talent Stage and 16 bands in total get the party moving. Dutch photographer Jolanda van Velzen was present and pointed her lens on metal bands Bodyfarm, Angel Witch, Arkona, Discharge, Caliban and made some fun snapshots of the fans.
