Special Performances


Lee Ranaldo, the legendary guitarist of Sonic Youth, will exclusively come to Grauzone with his project ''Songs & Stories'' in which he plays music, tells stories, a Q&A session and plays some old movie footage.

The Messthetics are Fugazi’s formidable rhythm section, drummer Brendan Canty and bassist Joe Lally who reunite for the 1st time in 15 years, joined by experimental guitarist Anthony Pirog. Another legendary act are dark wave/post punk pioneers Pink Turns Blue from Berlin who'll play the Netherlands for the first time in 20 years!

Together with Idles (last Grauzone) and Shame, The Blinders are considered to be the saviours of UK rock n roll (album of the year etc) and their live shows are stunning, spectacular and unforgettable, catch them while you can!

Thee spacerock acid kraut-heroes from Glasgow The Cosmic Dead are exploring the outer reaches of Krautrock, doom and psychedelic, think of NEU!, Hawkwind and Spacemen 3. Their 2017 album ''Psych Is Dead'' was called ''brilliant'' by the press and shows that Space Rock is very much alive.

Norwich post punk funk synth duo Sink Ya Teeth was one of the best bands at the last London Calling Fest and mixes post punk, funk synth & wave, think New Order, Raincoats ans Slits.

Charlie & the Lesbians from the Netherlands mix post punk, indie & punk. Nik Colk Void, of Factory Floor fame and her collaboration with Chris &Cosey will play an intense live set on friday, and a DJ set on Saturday. Also at the pre party on Friday is Dutch psychedelic, spacerock and kraut band OZMA, a new supergroup from The Hague feat members of Monomyth, Supersonic Bluesand Elektovolt. Greek DJ Pasiphae also plays at the pre party and mixes wave, elektro en techno.
