Two of last years artists, Umphrey's McGee and the Disco Biscuits, have been invited back. STS9 seemed to be the 'other' favorite among their fans, along with the Duo. Joe Russo has played many times with members of the Biscuits. We think this line-up will be even better than last year's, in terms of crossover interest.
The Melkweg is set up in such a way, as to allow a flow between the two rooms of the venue. There is also a restaurant, café, cinema, and art gallery in the building. This makes for many places to hang out before and during the concert. There is also a liberal in/out policy, so that any time you feel the need for fresh air, or a walk around the nearby Leidseplein, no rules will prevent it.
The show is presented with two hour sets from each band, each night, in one of the two rooms. Music starts at 9:00 and goes until 3:00, leaving the whole day to explore the "Venice of the North". With six hours of music per artist over three nights, you are sure to get your fill. There will be some overlap of the sets so that neither room gets too crowded, beyond the fact that we sell less than the capacity to keep it very comfortable for all fans.
