Expect a bruising, but enlightening night of rock music in WORM's Avantgardistic State! This particular sound-clash is brought to you courtesy of the Popdottir and Yugofuturism organisations. Expect four outstanding live acts from Poland, Serbia, Belgium and – yes – Groningen. Including Poland's Coals, Belgium's Cocaine Piss, and Groningen's WOLVON. And Repetitor: a garage rock/post-punk trio from Belgrade, Serbia. They are, without doubt, one of the most exciting live bands in Europe. Repetitor “...make you fall in love with guitar rock all over again and are arguably the best guitar band on the planet right now. They are the 21st Century Nirvana who have come to save rock.” (John Robb, Louder Than War)
