Rootstown-concerts organiseert als feitelijke vereniging al jaren concerten in en rond Aarschot en plant dit in de toekomst ook zeker te blijven doen. Om die heropstart een duwtje in de rug, een klopje op de schouders, een stamp onder het gat te geven, hebben we jullie hulp hard nodig. Net zoals ieder jaar plannen we in het najaar een editie van ROOTS IN DE HERFST in de Klinker Club te Aarschot. We hebben hiervoor al een mooi aanbod van muzikanten vastliggen en willen hier kost wat kost mee verder om jullie een kwaliteitsvolle editie te kunnen aanbieden.

Steunkaarten kosten 15 Euro en kunnen gebruikt worden als toegangsticket voor Roots In De Herfst op 30 oktober 2021.

Indien dit event omwille van corona-restricties toch niet zou doorgaan (men weet nooit hé), voorzien we zeker een alternatief waarvoor je je steunkaart kan omruilen.

Uiteraard ben je vrij om je steunkaart al dan niet te willen verzilveren!

STEUN JIJ MEE? Goed zo want “WE WANT & NEED YOU” 
Je kan kiezen uit 2 steunkaarten, klik op onderstaande link om uw steunkaart aan te kopen:
– Steunkaart: 15 Euro
– Steunkaart met ticket Roots In De Herfst (30/10/2021): 15 Euro
