Alcatraz Metal Fest takes place every year in the second weekend of August in Kortrijk, Belgium. It’s an awesome festival that’s smaller, but definitely not less. With bands such as Anthrax, Whitesnake, Avantasia and Twisted Sister, the festival had one hell of a line up. Be ready for the story that follows…
Graspop, the festival where everybody can be themselves without being judged. One big community that comes together to enjoy the metal music. Even if it is rainy, stormy, sunny or all of the previous, it doesn’t matter. Bands show respect to fans and fans show respect to bands and to other fans. So raise your devilhorns and prepare for the four day story to be unfold.
We've had it coming. After the string of terror hits in the European continent. And after the bombings of Brussels it was descided the treath level remains on 3(after it was raised to 4 and lowered again). This has effect on every belgian festival(which number well in the 280).
For me it was the first time going to a concert instead of a festival. But hey, there’s a first time for everything right? My trip started out with missing my train, which forced me to take another train which made me into my old classmate. That shows that every bad thing, also has a good side. So, after my train trip to Antwerp, I took the tram to Trix. On the website itself it already says which tram or bus you have to take and at which stop you have to get off. I took the tram, got off at ‘Hof ter Lo’ and walked 2 minutes to Trix. There was already a waiting line in front of the door, which wasn’t really necessary because you could still get to the front easily if you came to the show later.
