Each year in late April/early May there’s a small earthquake in a small village called Meerhout (Kempen Area). It’s time for the annual GROEZROCK festival. Presenting the cream of the crop in the hardcore/punk world and kicking off the festival season pogo-style. During the past years this festival grew from a small venue (cap. 400 visitors) to an international punk/hc/emo/ska/rock festival with 35.000 visitors from all over the globe. GROEZROCK has become one of the largest punkrocking festivals in Europe.
