Vice has always been about sex, drugs and rock & roll, particularly rock & roll of the punk and metal variety, the heavier and smellier the better. Where are you going to find sex, drugs and smelly music in a greater concentration than at a festival? That’s right: nowhere. So, VBS strapped on it’s novelty beer bong hat and decided it was time to document the best that European punk and metal festival circuit has to offer: Groezrock.
Vice UK’s James Knight was sent to the legendary Belgian punkstravaganza to meet both the bands and the festival goers who make Groezrock the only festival in Europe that Bad Religion call home.
If you want to know why Agnostic Front’s Vinnie Stigma likes wearing wooden clogs around his New York apartment, what Pamela Anderson has to do with why Sum 41’s Derrick Whibly is bummed at the guys from Lit and the inside scoop on Pennywise’s new line up then you’re only going to find out about it right here.
On top of finding out what makes the average Belgian punk festival go-er tick, blagging their way on to tour busses to plunder bands riders and interviewing everyone from Rise & Fall to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones we also got a bunch of exclusive live footage of Bad Religion, Pennywise, The Bronx, Agnostic Front, Glassjaw and a cast of thousands.
