Rockfest 2016 – It’s a New Dawn!

Rockfest1 on September 17th – 18th!

This will be the third year of Rockfest, and as Calanne, who set up the two first Rockfests, has gone into retreat for an indefinite time, Rockfest is now under new management, hence the motto for this third Rockfest: “It’s a New Dawn”.

Rockfest 2016 is two days of rock music in the broad sense of the term, spanning from Sister Rosetta Tharpe to Inglorious, or, if you will, from Anthrax to Zappa.

It was the idea from the start to show migrants and newcomers some love while on the other hand also having some of the well-established bands. Hence Rockfest 2016 brings you bands large and small, known and not so known, from many servers and from all over the globe2.

This is the schedule so far (last update 2016.09.11) for Rockfest 2016.

All times are EDT (currently co-incident with /servertime).

(1) No connection to Rock Fest in Wisconsin, USA.

(2) Well, Asia, Africa and South America are under-represented if they are represented at all which is due to me not knowing of very many players from those parts.

(3) Searching might not lead you to the correct source!
