Best Rock Instrumental Award to Insanitizers for "Shootout"

Besides hosts The Phantom Four and Russian cult legends Messer Chups the Belgian surf scene is represented by The Scrammers and Humanga Danga, two bands that already blew the crowds of Pacific Parc away during one of the returning North Sea Surf Nights.
