Aloha Fest 3 - Jan 12 - Venlo, NL

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).

del-Toros (NL)
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….

Terrorsaurs (UK)
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!

Akulas (B)
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!

Hicadoolas (D)
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:
