Ike KrijnenSpoken Word
Ike is a poet and performing artist, but also an editor from IG Karfield, an English-language writer. Sometimes he borrows a poem from Mr. Karfield and translates it freely into Dutch. Mr. Karfield writes about and from the elements of nature: art, revolution, sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll. His style is experimental, bouncy, elusive, sometimes otherworldly.
Broken Toaster RecordsPerformance
Performance art collective Broken Toaster Records consists of Kasper van Moll, Jelle Slof and Ide André. Since 2015 they make custom made performances who follow the principles of the band. For StukafestTV, Broken Toaster Records made an unique mix of their discography, which now already exists of more than 40 albums.
Cloudsurfers is a dangerous tasty mix of sunny surf and heavy punk. Manic guitar passages and grungy vocals are propelled by a flaming rhythm section. Cloudsurfers mixes the unpredictability of Pulp Fiction, the sweatiness of Oh Sees, and the garage pop of Together Pangea: That’s a pretty fucking good milkshake!
Roi Soleil is a gold-clad icon, inspired by pop culture, drag-/gay culture and French history. Roi Soleil (Matthijs Rijsdijk – vocals, keys and playing) makes Frenglish pop music with a dash of queer glitter. He performed at the Amsterdam Fringe Festival 2020 with his performance ‘Messe’. But now we’re in luck, because the king is coming to Stukafest!
Marc BurenSpoken Word
Marc Buren from Vlissingen has been listening to rap and writing lyrics himself since primary school. Some of the artists that inspired him are Rico & Sticks (Opgezwolle), Eminem, Dire straits, Limp Bizkit and Bob Marley. He likes to tackle spoken word in calm manner, without accompaniment enabling him to take his own pace. Clam, peaceful and clear is his motto. In Dutch.
Gyna & HannahDance
For Stukafest, Gyna and Hannah prepared a Contemporary Dance piece through which they would like to share their view on society. Gyna and Hannah are students at University College Roosevelt in Middelburg. They started dancing at a young age and have loved it ever since. In 2021 they both will also start studying at Fontys Dance Academy in Tillburg.
Driven by friendship and curiosity Umber Stills started a journey exploring the musical possibilities of combining contemporary folk, rock, funk and more. This Spanish-Dutch band consists of singer-songwriter Ato, bass player Ronald and multi-instrumentalist/composer Robin. Their Stukafest gig is the first one under their brand new band name: Umber Stills. Check it out!
