The long awaited timetables…
Just to be sure you all understand 🙂 the first band also likes to play for people..(trust me they do)
I also mentioned prices..75% of the money at the door goes directly in to the pockets of these nice bands who drove far to play for us 25% of the money goes to De Onderbroek to pay for food, drinks, money requests from cool groups/projects, maintenance, paint, cleaningstuff, fixingstuff, mics, cables, minijacks, screws and other stuff we are a DIY place so we dont get money from anyone (except from you…thanks 🙂
the reason im not doing weekendpasses or something is because this way the money you pay is actually going to the bands on the night itself (plus its easier)

19:45 – 20:15 Regn

Here’s some info on the place where the fest is gonna be..please read what we as a collective stated.
Its everyone’s responsibility to make our places and this festival a comfortable and safe place to be at.

De Onderbroek is a legalized squat that was squatted in ’84 and after a lot of hard work and effort was legalized in 2009.
We are a collectively organized space and have a steady group of people that takes care of the basic infrastructure through a meeting which is held twice a month. Everyone that is involved and doing work is doing so on a voluntary basis, please respect that and always feel welcome to get involved.

We do our best to create an atmosphere and space where people feel welcome and safe and can be whoever they want to be. We do not tolerate any form of oppression like racism, sexism, fascism, homophobia, genderphobia etc. If nevertheless you feel unsafe or see situations around you that make you feel uncomfortable/unsafe please let us know at the bar, door or let people know that are connected to De Onderbroek.

De Onderbroek is a self supporting venue. We don’t get external money from the state.
Our prices are low and flexible so people with different financial situations and backgrounds can get in. Our target prices for a show is 5 euros which will cover the expenses for the band that is on tour, we do encourage people to pay our suggested 7 euro soli-price, this will keep the place running and will provide us at De Onderbroek some money for maintenance and to keep this awesome space going.



Interwebs and next DIY Fest

Obviously i only put some messages on the Facebook event and completely forgot about this beautiful website.
Doing shows for quite a while now and last weekend was probably one of the most inspiring and most beautiful things that ever took place in a basement.Thanks you to all the people that showed up, drove far, hitchhiked trough Europe to get to Nijmegen. All the people and friends that helped out with cleaning, cooking, doing shifts, djing, doing ABC and Book stands, giving workshops, baking cakes, setting up, doing sound, making breakfast! Thanks to all 15 bands for making amazing music and being great people..
Thanks to my fellow friends in De onderbroek collective for making it a great weekend super excited to organize shows again and definitely doing a big DIY fest next year.

Suggestions, questions, ideas for next year please send an email

Also one of the people that spend the whole weekend in Nijmegen wrote a super nice report on the whole thing.

thanks for that!

Also im just finishing the line up for the next smaller DIY fest.
its gonna be on July 18th and it has kick ass bands.
also i noticed that people think that this was the first time im setting up the festival but its not..maybe it is in this bigger form but troughout the years im organizing smaller 1 day slightly bigger shows with good bands that all are in a way related to eachother and get the idea of DIY culture. # 9 is coming up!
