Rice 2
21:00-22:00
StuD Mainstage
Rice 2 is the trio that won the band contest on the 11th of March this year. It’s a band that was formed by a couple of friends who decided to make music. From relaxed Jack Johnson surf-vibes to funk, ska and hip-hop. Drummer Sybe Rietman and guitarist Ben De Jong know each other for years now, and two years ago bass-man Pim Meester joined the band. With a lot of varying own work, and also known covers, they always manage to build a party or a relaxed atmosphere.
StropStrikkers
22:30-23:30
StuD Mainstage
StropStrikkers have no mercy for people they disagree with. Their raw beats and raps about streetlife show the darkside of Utrecht, their hometown. In 2007 they presented their album “Dark Days” in a sold out Ekko and won the Utracks Award. Then in 2008 there was a period of solo succes for the members of the group and they parted their ways. However this year they decided to come back together and released a brand new album called “Tabula Rasa”. Their sound is comparable to the music of Mobb Deep and Wu-Tang Clan so if you are into raw hip-hop be sure to check them out!
Broken Brass Ensemble
00:00-01:00
StuD Mainstage
Broken Brass Ensemble combines the traditional New Orleans brass with hip-hop, balkan, funk, fanfare (and much more) into a blazing mixture of energy. The eight BBE members are all very young and talented musicians who combine swinging brass with tight percussion. All of their work is original, though the band isn’t ashamed to rock the audience with a surprising cover every now and then.
De Skaggerz
01:30-02:30
StuD Mainstage
For years, the Skaggerz bring the craziest party reggae-ska-punk to the Dutch stages and festivals. The six strange creatures of which the band consists succeed again and again in transforming everyday moments in true sweat-sessions where the visitor leaves with more energy than that he went in with. All six members really adore music, but during every show it all comes down to one thing: having the craziest, most energetic and fun party ever, together with the audience. The Skaggerz play and sing about love, fairy tales, pensions and expensive concert-tickets. About how beautiful the world is, or not. About pleasure, nerds and girls. All this wrapped into a colourful coat of steaming ska with a more than rough edge.
