- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
2019 started with the announce one of the most ambitious Brazilian surf music releases. Reverb Brasil Records and Orleone Records join forces to release Brazilian Tsunami, a three CD box set with 63 Brazilian surf bands.
Brazilian surf scene was always known for its activity and creativity, with a lot of bands from all over the country and different interpretations of the style, with influences that go from Brazilian music to metal, punk, latin and new wave, but never missing the main point of surf music: fun music to dance to.
The digital release took place during January. The box set was released in early February and release parties took place in a lot of cities around the country.
Now we are proud to announce the first edition of Brazilian Tsunami Festival, in São Paulo. 16 of the bands appearing on the compilation share the stage at Cervejaria Tarantino in two days of Brazilian surf music celebration. We will also have an album artwork exhibit by Henrique San, the man behind the box set artwork, vintage instruments exhibit, food trucks, record vendors, brewery tours and a lot more.

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:
