This year Speedfest celebrated its 10th edition at the ‘’clock building’’ in Eindhoven. No wonder the festival was sold out with such a great line up: Carcass, Napalm Death, Danko Jones, Peter Pan Speedrock, Obituary, Voivod, Pro Pain, Refused, High on Fire, The Hip Priests, Death Alley, Crobot, Avatarium and many more. Unfortunately, as we all know, The Eagles of Death Metal cancelled their European tour and didn’t perform here. The festival took one minute of silence to commemorate all the victims of the tragedy in Paris.
DJ ‘’De Rooie Neger’’ entertained all the visitors at the foodcourt with tracks from Dolly Parton to Slayer, from Snoop Dog to Bob Marley and all the oldest dutch songs you can ever think of. At Speedfest everything is possible: We saw visitors, who wore the most brutal metal shirts, singing and dancing on popular tunes from the 60’s to the 90’s. This DJ offered something for everyone and surprised everyone with well- and lesser-known old school music in so many genre. Thanks to the organisation for this amazing festival, all the volunteers and of course a special thanks to Peter Pan Speedrock!
