Once again, it is event promotion time! On this occasion I present to you the famous "Ieperfest", an amazingly epic festival in Belgium. The fest has been standing out as one of the strongest and most solid events that gathers hardcore bands from all over the globe. For twenty years two Belgian diy collectives, "Genet Records" and "Republyk Vort'n Vis", have been running the constantly growing show with some truly genre shaking bands on their repertoire. From a tiny event to a 10.000 visitor monster festival, "Ieperfest" 2012 is not just a celebration of underground music, diy and friendship, but also a birthday party in the name of its wonderful two decade journey.
The festival will be held on 10, 11 and 12 August in Ieper, Belgium, a small town just 15 kilometers from France. If there is anything that can intrigue you to attend, aside of the very tradition behind the fest, it is definitely the list of bands which perform. Thus feast your eyes on the insane lineup for this year's "Ieperfest"!
