’’Do you know Jesus?’’ Those were the welcoming words from preachers we’ve got when we set foot at the premises. The bitter history of Elsrock is still etched in our memories. A few years ago Elsrock was one of the greatest festivals on dutch soil. The last open air festival was in 2011 with great acts such as Asphyx, Nuclear Assault, Grave, Grand Magus and so on. They booked a succesful and well attended edition. After 5 years of absence, the organization decided to do a comeback. Metal fans from all over the region went massively to Rijssen to support our local dutchies. What a way to start the resurrection of Elsrock with our own talented musicians by pulling a varied line-up and a great atmosphere. All the ingredients of a metal festival were there! From greasy bites and an endless flow of beer to band merchandise and of course good LOUD music, guaranteeing a day of absolute fun and metal mayhem.
