Watch exclusive Groezrock live sets from Iron Chic, The Wonder Years, H2O and more

By Ben Tipple

The Etnies Back To Basics stage at Belgium’s annual punk-filled Groezrock Festival strips live performances back to their raw state. There’s not a laser light show or smoke machine in sight – instead the crowd are pushed right up against the stage as security hang in the wings rather than centre stage.

Barriers? What barriers? What really makes this a unique experience is the invitation to crowd surf, stage dive and pit until your heart is content. Bands who now find themselves regularly separated from their audience by vacuous spaces get up-close and personal, as dust driven up by the enthusiastic hordes takes over the tent.

But don’t take our word for it – we were on hand to film various sets over the two day festival. Over the next few weeks we’ll be releasing live videos by the likes of I Am The Avalanche, The Wonder Years, Touche Amore, PUP, H20 and more.

The videos will be hosted over on the Punktastic YouTube Channel, but we’ll embed them here for you for your viewing pleasure too!
