Liberation Festival Brabant invites hundreds of musicians to form the largest rock band in the Netherlands together and play one song: ‘Everyone is of the World‘from The Scene.
The Freedom Band will consist of 60 live musicians including Björn van der Doelen, Nona, Anneke van Giersbergen and members of Organ Eating, The Wild Romance and PYRO. They will be recorded together on 2 or 3 May at De Pettelaarse Schans in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. The rest of the band is formed by home rockers who can participate in the project with video submissions. All the footage is merged into one large polished whole.
The idea for the project comes from the Italian Rockin’1000, where 1000 musicians performed. Artistic leaders Ivo Severijns and Wouter Hardy initially had the idea of having 500 people play together live, but that turned out to be impossible in view of the corona rules.
The video will be presented on May 5 at 1:10 PM.
Liberation Festival Brabant is now looking for musicians. Are you a drummer, singer, guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, headbanger, triangle player or something else? You can register via the festival website.
Anyone can submit a video to be part of it. Also outside Brabant and even outside the Netherlands.
