Sunburn Surf Fest

Happy to announce a new, small, scorching hot surf festival in the south of the Netherlands: Sunburn Surf Fest will take place on Saturday, September 16, 2023, in Tilburg.

The first surf bands making up the lineup so far:

= THE KRONTJONG DEVILS =
Back to being a quintet, these veterans of the Dutch surf scene really need no introduction. Marvellous instrumental surf music, straight from 'Groningen Surf City'… and the stars.

= BARÍTON LOCO =
Ghent's Baríton Loco brings some mean twangy guitars, piercing bass, raw driving drums and with an edge of fuzz. Not for the faint of heart.

= THE MALBEHAVERS =
From the beaches of Tilburg, these locals like to throw a sonic beach party, inspired by their surf heroes.

More to come!

Sunburn Surf Fest – Scorching hot surf music
Saturday, September 16, 2023
Little Devil, Stationsstraat 27, Tilburg, Netherlands

2023 VENTURES INTERNATIONAL FAN FEST

This will be our 14TH such gathering honoring the legacy of "the biggest selling & most popular band in the history of recorded music!"

The (12) hour event (9 AM- 9PM) features all-day music, special guests, memorabilia & sale tables, a silent auction & a dinner buffet!

For the past several years, THE WILSON & BOGLE FAMILIES, longtime business manager FIONA TAYLOR & BOB SHADE of Hallmark Guitars have graced us with their presence. This year THE VENTURES themselves hope to tie in a fest appearance with several lined-up gigs nearby!

Co-founder DON WILSON sadly passed away in January of last year & we honored his own legacy last year at the fest with a 'Don Wilson Remembered' theme. In previous years- we did the same for legendary guitarists' Nokie Edwards & Gerry McGee. Don's son TIM will be onboard this year as a co-cordinator of the event & together we've chosen the theme:

THE VENTURES FOREVER!

In the months ahead- Tim will be reaching out to those musicians who were an 'integral' part of The Ventures legacy over the years: JOHN DURRILL, JOE BARILE, GEORGE BABBITT, HARVEY WICKLAND & DEKE DICKERSON to name a few with invites to what we hope turns into 'our gandest fest ever!'

Its early yet in regards to setting an 'exact' cover charge for the fest this year! We'll be in the process of gauging interest over the next few months but be advised that we're usually in the $70-$80 range for the day which includes breakfast, lunch & dinner!

Every year- for those unable to attend- we offer post fest pkgs, that can include the 'commemorative T-shirt & program &/or DVD SETS capturing all the festivities. Items are priced separately & $$$ totals count toward expenses! We encourage support in some form if you opt out of attending!

Our ID CARD for this year is attached (front & back). Contact info is included to clarify info within or to inquire about any of the fest goodies
available as a 'form of support!'
