Hey there. Two weeks ago we brought you the sad news that BONECRUSHER and WAR OF AGES will not be playing Ieperfest 2014. Today, we are bringing you the joyful news that the following 8 acts have confirmed their presence at our annual little hardcore festival. This brings us to a total of 78. 6 more bands will be announced next month. Ready? Here goes!

  • DEAD KENNEDYS (US) // Any one unfamiliar with these San Francisco hardcore/punk pioneers?  Around since 1978, writing hit after hit: "California Über Alles", "Holiday in Cambodia", "Too Drunk to Fuck", "Nazi Punks Fuck Off!", "MTV Get Off The Air", … Need more? So stoked to have them play Ieperfest for the very first time!
  • The DICKIES (US) // Among the first punk rock bands to emerge from Los Angeles back in 1977 (!!). They became famous for their humorous, comical style resulting in comments as "easy listening punk" or even "bubble-gum punk". Glad to welcome...

A week ago we announced that we will be adding a brand new small and cosy stage to our festival this year. This means we will be having 84 bands playing the festival instead of the 64 that played the past few years. We’ve announced 51 of them already, and today we are adding another 21 bands to the line-up. 72 down, 12 to go...


Dear reader, this is an important update regarding the future of Ieperfest. Over the last 22 years, our festival has gradually but surely grown from a very small (but nonetheless significant) two-dayer to a middle-sized three-day event. Since 2008, you were able to enjoy music on two stages (Main Stage and Marquee) and get yourself informed/involved in the More Than Music stage/tent.

This year, 2014 that is, we thought it was time to add an “extra touch” to the fest. So we are proud to announce the introduction of a third music stage (fourth stage in total). This stage will allow us to offer you no less than 84 (!) bands from a wide variety of genres spread over three days.

This new stage will be an indoor (tent) stage. It will have a small capacity, allowing no more than 200 kids at a time to enjoy a band’s performance. This will enable the “smaller”, “lesser known”...
