limburgmetalbowling.jpgOn Saturday the 23th of January 2016, for the fifth time the Limburg Metal Bowling Championships are been held in the small town Horst (near Venlo/Venray) in the north of Limburg/ Netherlands.

As many other metal-events, this event started as a drunken idea at the bar! After coming up with some kind of plan, to our surprise the bowling-center agreed to our drunken idea and thus Limburg Metal Bowling Championships were born. This first edition was held in January of 2012 and was an instant success. The subscriptions for all open team-spots were filled within 2 days. The second edition was held in January of 2013 and had the same instant success.

Now four years later, we are on the brink of our fifth edition, bigger, better and louder! This year with more team-spots, free live-music, the best local metal DJ’s, cheap beer, food and merchandise-stands and cheesy exploitation/horror/bowl/sci-fi movies on big screen.

Over 20 teams will battle for the infamous Limburg Metal Bowling trophy! All this during the best old and new metal-classics played by two local DJ’s. This year again a FREE mini-festival during the bowling competition with the musical eruptions of :


THRASHCAN (Thrash Metal-covers w/ members of Wicked Mystic, Mortal Form and Death Squad)
ROTTEN CASKET (Dutch oldschool Death-metal heroes)
Z.O.D. (Local S.O.D. / M.O.D. cover band)
BANDITO (Dutch Stoner band)


So even for the non-bowlers, there’s plenty to see and do at this evening! A hilarious bowling-competition, cheap beer, good music, free live-music, bad movies and loads of new friends/drinking-pals!



The venue is open at      : 18.00u
Start                                      : 19.00u
First band                            : 20.00u
