- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
The third edition is a fact! Same beautifull venue as the previous edition; the Grenswerk concert hall in Venlo, Netherlands. Again we have two stages in the hall, so be prepared for an non-stop surf assault!
Tickets are 12 euros pre-sale and 14 euros at the door. Pre-sale link will be posted here soon!
There is also a tiki-market in the venue with art, fashion, records and even an old fashioned barbershop.
The same afternoon (around 15:00 hrs) we have a pre-party at Sounds Recordstore (the best & biggest recordstore of the Netherlands - just ask Lorenzo or JonPaul) with in-store gigs by Aloha Sluts and the Terrorsaurs.
Venlo is only a 40 minute drive from the airports of Dusseldorf, Eindhoven and a little bit longer from Antwerp or Cologne.
This year's line up:
Bradipos IV (I)
Italy’s oldest surfband has been one of Europes best and spectacular surf bands since 22 years! They just released their sixt album Lost Waves (vinyl only).
Imagine Kyuss playing Dick Dale songs! Stonersurf! It got them a
split single with Californian stonerlegends Fatso Jetson. On their latest album they collaborate with Peter te Bos (Claw Boys Claw) and sax-player Bertus Borgers!
Aloha Sluts (NL)
The hosts of tonight had a very succesfull 2018. Imagine a surf band on festival posters with big names as Descendents, Pennywise, Mummies, Dead Kennedys and more! 666% SURFABILLY! Imagine Link Wray & the Sonics had 3 little sons who started a surf band….
Back on popular demand! They tore up the Aloha Stage at the
first edition of Aloha Fest and left everybody breathless! Now they are back, with a new double album on the legendary US Wild Records. Swamp surf that will rock your sox off!
Grinding organs, guitars drenched in reverb, catchy tunes it seems like a trademark for surf bands from Gent, Belgium. Remember Fifty Foot Combo? Akulas sound like the angry little brother!
For the second year in a row, a Berlin band is opening Aloha Fest. A start of a new great tradition? Hicadoolas combine old school surf instrumentals with a female singer. They just released a new EP that got raving (international) reviews!
Here is a photo of the party during the Phantom Four gig last year:
It's time for a new surf music festival in the Netherlands! On November 16, DB's in Utrecht is the place to be for all surf music fans!

After the success of last year's inaugural Surfer Joe tour of Japan, the international Surf Music Ambassador continues to live up to his name and returns to Japan once again for an even longer tour! The 2018 tour will visit even more far-reaching locations including Kokura, Fukuoka, and Hiroshima and will be highlighted by performances from some amazing Surf colleagues including The Surf Coasters, The El Caminos, Lulufin The Woo Hoo, The WHYs, The Fuzziyama Surfers, The Surf Vader, The Palms, Switch Trout, BCV and more! In addition, on this tour Surfer Joe will be joined by a bi-coastal American rhythm section consisting of his longtime collaborator Jonpaul Balak (Insect Surfers, Tikiyaki Orchestra) on bass, and Vincent Minervino (Black Flamingos, Royal Pacifics) on drums!
Arigato! See you there!
