Rock Herk looks forward to a festive new year
It’s the time of Season’s Greetings, and it’s the time when the organization of Rock Herk reveals its plans and ambitions for the new year. 2017 will be a special year: Rock Herk turns 35!
On Saturday March 25th we kick off with the first ROCK HERK MUSIC QUIZ. This quiz takes place in De Markthallen in Herk-de-Stad and starts at 19.00. Stijn Meuris will be presenting and the winner will receive a citytrip to London or lifelong free access to the festival. Others can win concert and festival tickets.

A few weeks later, on Saturday April 15th, we continue with FRESH BLOOD III, Rock Herk’s very own rock rally. Acts can subscribe from Wednesday February 1st. More information will follow but bands who want to win a show on Rock Herk can prepare themselves.
On Friday and Saturday July 14th and 15th it’s ROCK HERK 35. Last Summer, the festival was sold out for the second Summer in a row. So next July you can come to Herk-de-Stad again to enjoy the best alternative music and discover new bands for a fair prize. Rock Herk 2017 will be a special edition. More news will follow in a couple of months.
Rock Herk enjoys being a not so big two day festival with two stages with about fifteen thousand visitors. Next year, the festival will not expand, but we’ll look for ways to increase the quality and experience for the visitors. Rock Herk will also try to increase the sustainability of the festival and try to function energy neutral and produce less waste. This is very important in times of climate change.
To conclude this festive year in style, we’re working on a small dance party on a unique location next Autumn. More news will follow.
Rock Herk 2017 takes place on Friday July 14th and Saturday July 15th on the sports grounds Harlaz-Olmenhof in Herk-de-Stad. Check the website and Facebook page for more news on Rock Herk.
THE TEAM OF ROCK HERK WISHES EVERYBODY A NICE FESTIVE SEASON AND A GREAT 2017! ROCK ON!
