Finalists Fresh Blood III


In 2017 Rock Herk organizes yet again their very own rock rally: Fresh Blood III. Last week, five judges -festival organizers and promotors- had the difficult task to select eight bands and live acts out of more than three hunderd subscriptions for the final on Saturday April 15th in Café Café, Hasselt.

It was not an easy task, as the musical level was pretty high. These bands were selected:

  • CELESTIAL WOLVES – postrock / alternative – Herzele

  • DANNY BLUE AND THE OLD SOCKS – lo-fi / indie / surf – Antwerpen

  • EVERY STRANGER LOOKS LIKE YOU – grunge / hardcore – Brussel

  • GROSS – noise – Genk

  • HEISA – alternative – Hoeselt

  • LONDON BULLET – punk / hardcore – Deinze

  • THE HIPSTER JUGEND – pop – Leuven

  • THE WALTZ – grunge / alternative – Kuurne

The organization wishes to thank all who subscribed for their participation, and good luck for the future.

The winner chosen by the professional jury and the winner chosen by the audience will be able to perform on one of the stages of Rock Herk 2017.

There’s more! FRESH BLOOD is a collaboration with PXL, school for higher education. Thanks to this partner, the winner can also be offered a professional recording session, in collaboration with students sound engineering from PXL-Music.

FRESH BLOOD III is organized by Rock Herk, Poppunt, Café Café and PXL-Music. The final takes place on Saturday April 15th in Café Café, Hasselt. Free admission. Check the website and Facebook page for more news and subscribe for the newsletter:
