It’s fully Autumn and we enjoy the colouring of the leaves while being on the road with many of our bands/musicians.
We had amazing tours the last month and we’re now preparing our annual indoor festival Roots In De Herfst, November 24th, 2018 in Aarschot, Belgium. More info on all our events can be found on our facebook-page and website.
We also took our time to listen to all the great bands who sent us their music and info. We already know 2019 will be a blast.
New additions for end of December 2018, January 2019 and Febuary 2019:
