Clowns (AUS) / Slam Harder (D)
In 2015 Clowns have unsolicitedly carved their name into the walls of the Australian punk rock hall of fame. The success of their most recent full length Bad Blood has seen them smash sold out shows and festivals nation wide, appear at the 2015 SxSW festival, become the first ever Australian act to (dis)grace the prestigious Riot Fest line up in Chicago and achieve high rotation on national radio stations and bedroom record players alike.
Combining a vicious base layer of punishing punk rock combined with influences that range from 77’ punk, to underground Australian rock, as well as thrash, doom, noise and powerpop all loaded with chaos, energy and fun. Clowns really know no boundaries in regards to leaving punters stoked that they left their couches and came out to see them at a show.
With two full length LP’s under their belt including 2013’s “I’m Not Right” which ranked in at number 5 of national radio’s ”Short Fast Loud’ top 40 releases of 2013, as well as the already highly acclaimed follow up LP ”Bad Blood” released in early 2015, Clowns are heavily equipped with the right credentials to back up their impressive live show. Both of these records are out on highly esteemed Australian label “Poison City Records”, which the band have a strong and proud working relationship with, as well as having North American distribution through “No Idea Records” in USA.
With over 300 shows since the bands inception, shedding the lifeblood of Melbourne hardcore punk across South-East Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and just recently USA; not to mention appearances at SXSW in Texas, MIDI Festival in China and many wild Australian East Coast shows, it’s safe to say that Clowns have a strong thirst for being on the road.

Bob Wayne (USA) / Louderdales (D)
The last few years have been nothing, but the usual wild ride for BOB WAYNE with numerous shows throughout Europe, North America and Brazil that didn’t just have him play festivals such as Ramblin’ Man Fair (UK), Speedfest (NL), or even the legendary Wacken Open Air (DE), but also saw him supporting The BossHoss on sold out arena shows in Germany in 2016.
After releasing “Hits The Hits”, an album with cover versions of some of the world’s biggest hits, the singer, songwriter, storyteller and nomad is back to telling his own stories on his new album “Bad Hombre“ some of which drew influences from meeting people while he is doing what means the most to him: Being out on the road, traveling to distant places, going to many remote little towns and villages throughout the world, playing live and meeting the most diverse people.
So saddle up your horses, folks, and get ready for another good ride with BOB WAYNE through 2017 as the “Bad Hombre” hits the road! YEEEEHAW!
Based in Aachen/Germany, Louderdales started out in 2009 as a bunch of friends not knowing where the road might lead to. Influenced by almost any guitar driven music from the past 60 years, they got hooked on Americana & alt. Country music. Spiced with Morricone-like Guitar scraps and a dash of old fashioned Rock'n'Roll, the striking honky-tonky voice of lead singer Joe tells stories from the world of Outlaws and failed lives.
As every bandmate is around in the music scene for many years, hitting european and worldwide stages with bands like The Bloodstrings, Cave 4, Pigheaded and Ray Collins’ Hot Club, Louderdales are always prepared to saddle their horses and burn down your barn!
Since 2010, Louderdales shared the stage with Americana & Country acts like Bob Wayne, Chip Hanna and Jenny Don’t & The Spurs.
2011, Louderdales laid down 13 tracks that have been released as CD/LP titled "Songs of No Return" on Crazy Love Records in early 2012.
In 2016, the recordings for the 2nd album got finished. The album contains 13 songs and will be released in autumn 2017!

Mammoth Mammoth (AUS) / Riff Fist (AUS)
MAMMOTH MAMMOTH return to Europe to deliver another powerful addition to their list of prior heavy rock convictions. Over the course of their 10 year career, MAMMOTH MAMMOTH have left a stamp on the music scene proving to be one of Australia’s hardest and heaviest rock exports.The band are well documented for their high octane, unpredictable live shows, fronted by the dynamic yet uninhibited vocalist Mikey Tucker. They’ll be storming down a highway near you soon for their Mount The Mountain Tour which kicks off in April.
Formed in June 2011 with the sole purpose of making your head bang, arse shake and ears bleed, Riff Fist spent their first 18 months introducing Melbourne's live music audience to the way of the Fist. In December 2012, the band organised the first Riffmas event, a mini festival celebrating the local "doom metal" scene, which has since become an annual tradition.
Riff Fist unleashed their much anticipated debut EP Fistful of Riffs in 2013, which was well received by punters and critics alike. The trio went on to produce a limited edition 7" vinyl single For A Few Riffs More the following year.
In 2015, the group completed their "Western trilogy" with the release of The Good, The Loud and The Riff. Riff Fist went on to tour Europe, including a performance at Desertfest in Berlin.

Am 7. September 2000 hatte die BeatORGANization ihr allererstes Konzert. Die Idee einer regelmässigen und ständig spielenden RHYTHM und BEAT-Band war geboren. Eine beständigere Live-Band gab es und gibt es bis heute nicht. Mit über tausend Konzerten und über vierzig Musikern, spielte sich die Band durch viele Berliner Clubs und blieb in den besten hängen. Ihre großen Idole haben längst mitgewirkt, so dass es schon vorkam, dass drei Generationen von Musikern zusammen auf der Bühne standen. Durch ihre große Auswahl an Instrumenten (Hammond-, Farfisa-, Vox-ORGELN, Bläsersätze, Querflöten, Sitar, Fuzzgitarren, Percussions etc.), Titeln und Stilrichtungen wird ein extrem abwechslungsreiches Programm geboten und Größen wie Big Jay McNEELY, Guitar CRUSHER, Werner KRABBE von den BOOTS, Michael HAUKE von den HOUND DOGS, Valerio Capolari optimal begleitet. Nicht zu vergessen, die eigenen großartigen Sänger wie Mister Tom, Lady Swan, Nik Terror, Sister JACK, Monsieur OLIVIER, ABRAHAM, Yann de Paris, NADIVA, Psyched Alex und viele mehr.
