Since 2015 we have a new summer festival in Antwerp. Borgerwood wants to be an alternative celebration for you and for me, straightforward, and of course foxy and sexy. And there’s wood as well: the stage looks like a piece of art, the benches to sit on at the side are tree stumps and they have their own wooden Borger(Holly)wood sign.
The first edition was a tragedy as a horrific storm gazed over the festival and leaving only rain instead of people. Luckily, in 2016 the organization stood up and made up for the disaster the year before. For the third edition this year, I hope the weather forecasts will be favourable so we can enjoy the promising lineup.
I especially look forward to see Millionaire, the Belgian band who became world famous about ten years ago touring with the Foo Fighters and Muse.
Fifteen bands and DJ crews ensure an unforgettable day. At night the party continues in Trix, the music center next to the festival site.
The last important thing I can tell you: don’t go by car, the disaster of 2015 is upon you.
