After Mugison his dutch debut on Reykjavik to Rotterdam in 2005, much has happened. Now 4 years and an equal amount of cd-releases later Mugison he plays bluesy rock ‘n roll, the most honest rock ‘n roll you’ll ever hear. Mugison will take you on a ride, spill his guts in front of everybody, rip his heart out and serve it on a plate to make you angry, happy, sad, horny... all at the same time.
Support Act: Benny Crespo’s Gang
Benny Crespo’s Gang is an Icelandic rock band that sounds like the quirky fuzz of Sonic Youth and the dirty sludge of Queens of the Stone Age. The band is co-fronted by both Helgi and Lovisa, Lovisa is nowadays better known as Lay Low, her solo singer-songwriter alter ego. Benny Crespo’s Gang brings you majestically refreshing rock.

Ticket price: 12 EUR
