Groezrock Acoustic Punk Meeting VI

So, that was yet another very fun edition of the Groezrock Acoustic Punk Meeting. The sixth in a row and it's still not getting old and tiresome. We enjoyed singing along to lots of different artists playing lots of different songs. We've heard some NOFX, The Menzingers, Against Me!, among other covers and even got treated to some spoken word. Thanks lots to Groezrock for having us but the special thanks go out to everyone who was there! We'll see you next year.
If you have any audio/video of the event please do share with us: !

Info for acts:
We'll do our best to let everyone play a few songs. We don't want to make a time schedule or rules for this. Let's just get together and have some fun. We'll bring a guitar and that's it, if you'd like to have additional gear you'd have to bring it yourself.

Info for all:
You'd need a campsite ticket to be able to attend. Please note that we do not organise Groezrock. We're just a few guys who like to have a great time by setting this up, watching everybody play, singing along, and hanging out.

This is the end of this hippy note; just come drink and party.See you there! And don't forget to invite all your friends!
