April 2020 will therefore, once again, thousands of fanatics from all over the world to the Dutch Tilburg to indulge a common passion: blechernem Black-Metal-welded Rammelsberg in the darkest of Dives, for example. Or a Atmo-Rock epics and hypnotic Stoner Rock Gewummer. Or all at once. The Motto is: music without limitations. And anyone who has been there, knows what musical border-crossings-on-site full pull.
