Hardcore, More Than Music 2016

…Animal, earth and human liberation will only come through education… (Chokehold)

Despite what you may think, hardcore is more than just music! The MoreThanMusic tent is a free space for free thinking and discussion, for debate and creativity in changing our world for the better and for Non-Governmental Organizations & Action Groups to present themselves. Where music on stage fails to bring the message across, we try to fill the void and we always put together a series of non-musical activities, making people think, talk and act in a positive way. Check it out from time to time, feed your head, feel free to discuss… You’re in for some positive shit! Enjoy!

Be sure to visit the Oxfam Fairtrade Bar and Vegan Snack Shop in the MoreThanMusic tent!

Check the message board in front of the MTM-Stage for a daily update. (Very) subject to change.
