Pirate Farm Fest 2017 – Info

After a successful first edition in 2016 we will be back in 2017! Mark you calendar on June 30th and July 1st.
Friday will be all about psychobilly and heavy rock’n’roll, let me walk your through our line-up:
The SideBürns will be opening the festival. This German band with members from Cowboy Bob and Trailer Trash plays some damn fine speedrock. Before they changed their name to The Sidebürns they where known as Mr. Sideburn And The Barons.

Next up we’ll have something special for you guys! The Detrimentals vs. The Wallaroos!!!
The Detrimentals are a straight forward psychobilly band with Joachim from Tequilla Tattoo’s on drums. If you where at PFF in 2016 you know what a great band they are. In 2017 they are teaming up with one of the most promising Belgian bands in the underground rock’n’roll scene. The Wallaroos remind me of a young Kings of Nuthin. Full of energy and ready to party hard!

So you partied with us in 2016? So you remember The Mullet Monster Mafia?
THEY ARE BACK!!! The best surf trash band from Brazil will make you swing so hard that your ass will hurt the day after! But that’s not all…

Our headliner will be the legendary UK psycho clowns The Klingonz!!! They fly in for this one show only, so do not miss this you freaks!!!
Here is a live version of Bitch a song of their brand new album!!!

 

I’m damn sure we have a kick-ass line-up for friday, now let’s get on to saturday and see what we have in store for you nice folks…
The running order is not set yet, but you’ll get an idea of what we have to offer…:
We’ve got two Dutch bands this year, let’s start with them. First up, Baby Face Nelson. These guys will provide you with some sweet country punk rock’n’roll. I’ve seen them on stage a couple of times and they will get you going. Check out the video for the very catchy
“From Hercules CA to Maricopa AZ”!

Next one from the land of weed and shitty beer is CUDA. As the name may tell you this band plays fast, high powered cowpunk. It’s straight forward, nothing else to tell except they bring cheerleaders… Enjoy boys…

When we booked Call me Bronco we had to take 40RTY (so we did, it was this or nothing…)
It will be his first time in Europe so make sure to make him feel at home. We’re sure you’ll love his banjo driven folk punk songs! And he owns Beagles, so what could go wrong?

We sure are glad our friend Joshua James Esterline a.k.a. Acousta Noir will be back in our field. Without him and lots of others there would not have been a tent to party in last edition. I’m sure most of you know his music by now, so you know what to expect… If not here’s a video to remind you of his awesomeness…

The Dad Horse Experience… What is there to tell about this legend? You love him or you hate him, no in-between… We LOVE HIM!!!

Andrew Ellis came on tour in Europe for the first time in 2016,  and I have to say, I’m in love with this giant! Besides being a great guy he is one hell of an artist. With his dirty and sleazy one man blues he’ll take you on a wild trip into his world…

If you don’t know who Joe Buck Yourself is, then I have no idea where you have been the last 10 years… This man is a living legend and we are damn happy to have him play our second edition!

We have an exclusive and we are damn fucking proud about it!!! Shawn James & The Shapeshifters will play their very first show ever in Belgium!!! We know Shawn is starting to get a celeb status (remember that viral video of two guys in a wolf sanctuary? That’s him…) so we had to book him now, because we will not be able to pay him in a few years 😉
Also make sure to check out his solo stuff.
This video, shot at Muddy Roots in 2015, was my first introduction to this band and I’m hooked ever since. I play one of their albums at least two or three times a week and I have a BUNCH of records… Are you ready for some DOOOOM!?!?

Last year we had The Goddamn Gallows as headliner, I got to see them play two songs, then it was of to the E.R. for me… Long story, I don’t hold a grudge, we talked it out… You guys better make sure I get to see Carrie Nation & The Speakeasy play their set in full! I’ve told you guys before and I’ll tell it again… Carrie Nation is one of the most entertaining bands in this “scene” or even in this world! But you don’t have to take my word for it, come and see them for yourself…

Here is a little promo-video we made with all the bands:

Can we buy tickets now?
yes!
bit.ly/2hOkhbO
Friday: 20 euro
Saturday: 25 euro
Combi: 40 euro

Will it be sold out?
We do not know that… There will be 500 tickets, that’s it… We had almost 300 people in 2016… You do the math…

Where do you need to be?
Beurtstraat 42, Tielt-Winge, Belgium

Is there camping?
Yes and it is free if you have a ticket to the festival

Can I bring a camper or mobile-home?
Yes, we hope the weather gods will have mercy on us this year, so we can provide a better place to camp with them.

Can I bring my own drinks?
Yes and No… You can drink whatever the hell you want on the campsite, but please don’t bring your drinks on the festival grounds. You buying drinks is what keeps this festival alive…

Is it family friendly?
Yes, but we are not babysitters. If you bring your kids, please keep an eye on them. Kids left alone will be givin’ a bunch of redbull and a Florida Georgia Line cd… Try to deal with them after that…

Do kids need a ticket?
Kids up to 12 can get in for free. Please don’t be a dick and try to sneak in your 13 or 14 year old that looks like 10…

Why does the live music end at 12 on Friday and at 1 on Saturday?
Because we respect our neighbors and we hope you will too… Acoustic jams sessions are encouraged, yes even in the tent…

Will there be food?
DUH!!!! We love food, so we will make sure you have a choice between some of the best foodtrucks around. And yes even vegetarian…  Breakfast will also be served on saturday together with that sweet sweet coffee…

The most important thing you have to know is this:
Come and have fun and don’t be a DICK!!! If you want to come to the festival and fuck things up, you’re in the wrong place. Leave your politics, religion and shitty attitude at home! This is about having fun, dancing, catching up with friends and PARTY!!!

See you in our field…
