Middlemist Red, The Luckies, Birth if Joy (NL)

One of the most kicking, heartbreaking and succesful young bands will play its great psych-rock on this night in the company of two great young brother-bands, the Hungarian Luckies and the Dutch Birth of Joy.

Middlemist Red

Middlemist Red is a hungarian psychedelic-rock band, founded in late 2012. The band consists of Soma Nóvé (vocals, guitar), Dávid Papp (lead guitar), Soma Deli (bass, backing vocals) and Ábel Ürögdi (drums, backing vocals). The band's main inspiration channels from late 60's and early 70's rock bands like The Doors and The Beatles, as well as bands from the new wave of psychedelic rock like The Black Angels and Tame Impala.
They released their first EP called "As If You Could Mess This Up" in november 2013 which received great response in Hungary. Their single "Single Switcheroo" has won in a major hungarian song-contest and soon after that, they've been picked by Deezer to participate in an international competition called "Young Guns". Middlemist Red made it into the best 4 from 182 bands and Deezer let the listeners choose the winner. After a few weeks the hungarian band collected the most listenings and likes and won the competition.
In 2014 the band was invited to play at numerous hungarian festivals such as Sziget Festival, VOLT Festival and also had the opportunity to play gigs with bands like Wooden Shjips or The Black Lips.
The first Middlemist Red LP called "Supersonic Overdrive" has been released on November 3rd on Deezer. In March 2015 the band went to their first european tour and soon after that key players of the music ecosystem picked them and 13 other artist to participate in Midem Festival's Artist Accelerator programme.
They start 2016 by attending at Europe's biggest showcase festival: Eurosonic Noorderslag.

Birth of Joy (NL)

Influenced by psychedelica, blues and steaming rock&roll this trio takes you back to the good old times of MC5, The Doors and even Pink Floyd. At the same time they introduce a modern twist with references to QOTSA and Nirvana and hence create their own sound! With a drumplayer that could be Keith Moon's son, an organist that harasses his instrument to death and a singer/guitarist that seems to be the power version of Jim Morrison, this band is bound to catapult psychedelic sixties rock&roll back into our modern times with an energy you can’t resist!
