Schoonebeek Deathfest 2021

Report and photography by Jeanny Petrocchi, Metalphoto

SDF is an underground deathmetal festival held in the beautiful county of Drenthe, The Netherlands. It’s one of the few outdoor metal festivals on Dutch soil that could take place after all the corona restrictions. It was a sold out festival, with a max capacity of 750 visitors. The volunteers were exceptional, a small but extremely well organized festival. It begins with a covid free check-in at the entrance. An important asset that is required to attend this festival is a recent negative covid test or a proof of full vaccination. It was a great sunny day with lots of happy metal visitors, great music and lots of beer. A happening that many of us were longing for a long time. So therefor it doesn’t matter if there were technical problems. However, not even that could spoil the fun. The first 3 bands for next year’s festival on September 3rd 2022 are announced; Exhumed, Necrot and Morta Skuld. The early bird tickets are already sold out! But don’t panic, there are still regular tickets available. We will be looking forward to this festival next year again!
