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

Despite what you may think, hardcore is more than just music!

More Than Music 2019 logo

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 leftist shit! Enjoy!
At the time of printing this booklet, what’s underneath is what we plan on doing with timings and days yet to be determined. (Which means there’s lots of stuff to be added)

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

Get ready for the coolest documentaries, inspiring live interviews and presentations, thought-provoking talks and feel free to join the discussion!

Some of the bands performing on stage might invite you to come and talk about topics that relate to their songs, so really do sharpen your ears kids!

Interviews at Ieper Hardcore Fest 2019


This is the place to be for critical, counter-current books and publications, vegan and sweatshop free clothing & accessories, cool stickers, posters, and what not… This stuff is hard to find in mainstream bookstores and shops.  Copyleft not Copyright!

You can find these stands representing their organization during the whole weekend at the MTM- tent. Here’s a short introduction.

More info soon.


A decent collection of Zines from around the world. There will be a really cozy reading room near the MTM-stage (thanks to Kringwinkel West). Feel free to read’em here, but put’em back, thanks! We kindly ask everyone who makes musical or pure political zines to bring 2 copies to the MTM-tent.

Your zine will be available for everyone to read for the duration of the festival and then taken up into the Ieperfest Zine Library for future editions. A great chance for you to spread the DIY ethics and ideas of our movement and to present your work. If you would like to keep feeding the Ieperfest Zine Library with your zine, please contact us at ‘’ or send them to Ieperfest Zine Library, Postbus 42- 8900 Ieper/Belgium

If you can’t finish your meal, bring it to the MTM-tent, you’ll most likely find someone who will finish it for you. Throwing food away is just not done and yes, we’re always hungry!
