Suikerrock

Soulsister, Tom Jones (Jul 28), Triggerfinger, Iggy And The Stooges, Deep Purple (Jul 29), Heather Nova, Moby, Basement Jaxx (Jul 30), Tom Dice, Tom Helsen, Bart Peeters (Jul 31) In Dutch, suiker means sugar, making Suikerrock the sweetest festival of the summer as it's named after Tienen's renowned sugar refinery. But all this is unimportant as Suikerrock appraoches its 24th birthday and invites you to witness live sets by the wrinkly, perma-tanned professional Welshman Mr Jones, doubtless playing the hits as well as his rootsy, Johnny Cash-like current LP 'Praise & Blame', leather-skinned punk rocker Iggy Pop and co and the mainstream, pop-leaning Brixton dance duo BJ.
