BIMFEST XVI (2017) - Line-up revealed!

It is with great pleasure that we may announce the 16th line-up of our Belgian Independent Music Festival 2017 (BIMFEST) !

Like every year, we believe we succeeded to compile a varying, but still always fitting within the 'BIMFEST spirit, line-up.

After our last year’s 100% Belgian and 15th anniversary bill, we went also looking abroad again this year. Also, because there’s no BIMFEST without at least a few qualitative homegrown products like this year, for instance, IMPLANT (presenting a brand new album!) and cult band PARADE GROUND.

Loyal BIMFEST-goers will immediately spot a couple returning BIMFEST values like NO MORE (D), THE INVINCIBLE SPIRIT (D) and PSYCHE (CAN) on the poster, but also some less obvious names (to Belgian festival standarts) such as the German rhythmic and industrial act XOTOX or the Techno / EBM crossover project of tNYC electro producer and performer Oliver Chesler, THE HORRORIST (LIVE!).

This year we also succeeded to get KIRLIAN CAMERA, out from the hot but dark and industrial Southern Italy and fronted by the stunning and charismatic Elena Alice Fossi. Without doubt they will bring the temperature in the front rows to the boiling point.

Also electro-punk-rockers THE CASSANDRA COMPLEX (UK) will easily get the crowd moving and all warmed-up with beautiful songs like eg 'One Millionth Happy costumer', 'Second Shot' or 'March 89'.

The main catch of BIMFEST 2017 is undoubtedly the pleasant deranged British Electro combo BLANCMANGE, who almost everyone should know from their 80's mega-hits like "Do not Tell Me," "Blind Vision ',' Feel Me 'and' Game Above my Head '... just to name but a few!

The only two names that remain to be announced are those of the bands that will open on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th December. These two names can in fact be chosen by YOU on the Dark Demons Night on Saturday, June 17th in the nice concerthall of the Antwerp venue Het Oude Badhuis.
