Hi people

I can confirm that it's the "Lokerse Feesten" they are playing. I live a few miles from the festival ground and I've seen it advertised.

Like Sven mentioned, every year they have one melodic rock/AOR band on this event (among all sorts of music, from techno to reggae). I guess they have one rocker in the organization, don't know who, but I sure would like to thank the man or woman.

It's an outdoor gig for about 1000-2000 people and it's almost for free ! (I think the price is 50 or 100 BEF, around 1-2 USD)

The last couple of years they had:

*Mystery: damned what a great (Belgian!) band that was, if only these guy would come back

*Gotthard: they played just ahaed of the most popular Belgian band (Clouseau) and they were amazing.
At the end of the gig they played Mighty Quinn and half of the city was signing along !!!
After the show many people asked me for info about this band, were they could buy CDs,...
The funny thing was that people even addressed me in English, it seemed that wearing a T-shirt of Gotthard (or any other melodic rock band) makes you an alien in your own country.

*Bob Catley: good show (didn't know they were recording a video), but not the response Gotthard got. (I do have this gig on minidisc)

Anyway, I'll be there !!! (Giant next year ???)
