Conincx Pop Festival (NLD)

website, facebook
This year we celebrate the 37th edition of Conincx Pop, a free boutique festival at the meadows adjacent to the river Maas (Meuse).
The quality of the bands has always been the major criterion when selecting bands. Last year we realized that for years already we had more women on stage than most festivals. We now challenged ourselves to see if it is possible to book great bands, all with at least one woman on stage. And we succeeded!

Subhumans (GBR)

website, wiki, facebook, bandcamp
Anarcho-punk-rockers Subhumans (the one from the U.K.) started out in 1980, and a few years later toured The Netherlands several times with the help of Paperclip Agency. One of the cannot-do-without-albums of that time is the band’s “From the Cradle to the Grave” which is a classic in the genre.
Later Dick, Bruce, Phil and Trotsky put Subhumans on hold for a while, until they kick-started the band again in 1998. They have toured the world frequently after that, and have spread their anarcho-social message at the same time, of course. And still with an incredible amount of energy.
