I've never been to Groezrock but I have been to a few other Belgian festivals.
Belgians are super nice and laid back but not all that well organised, a bit like Danes really :lol:

How are you travelling? It's only a little more than an hour from where I live but I don't have a car or I would come by for a day to see Lagwagon and some other punk-rock.

Hey there,

I'm going there myself on the same busfare as you. I went last year, and it's a really great festival; it's cheap (beers are around 15-20 Danish crowns), rather well-organized (I am a big fan of Belgian festivals in general), and the ques for food and beverages are seldomly too long. Plus, the place rarely feels overcrowded in comparison to a lot of other festivals I've been to. And ofc, the lineup is stellar as usually.

See you on the bus! :)

It will be about the same as in Denmark, Germany, Netherlands etc.

Here are some links to the weather service from Belgium:

As far as I know, and in my own experience, the English proficiency levels in the Netherlands and Scandinavian countries are about the same.

In Belgium you will defiantly be able to ask for directions and order a beer ("pintje") in english though :lol:

It looks like we (danish) are number 3, after Norway and Holland.

If I remember correctly, is depended on which stand you were at. Like, french frites, spring rolls, that kinda greasy stuff was cheap enough, around 25 DKR. Then some were more expensive, like the vegetarian food and shawarmas (not sure if I remember correctly, but 40-50?). Around that area. But it's kind of a blur :p
