Kermesz à l'Est
From behind their emblematic logo, eight musicians with well-steeled personalities hammer out an original fusion of Balkan melodies, metal, math rock, electro and free jazz. With the inimitable look of metalheads without the guitars, intellectual punks and fairy anarchists all rolled into one, they also wield a typically Belgian sense of humour capable of ruffling the hair of even the slickest of rockers. Their unique repertoire is enhanced by their hilarious stage antics, drawing on freak shows and cabinets of curiosities to produce an explosive, dance-filled and festive show.
For more than 10 years, KermesZ à l’Est has been lighting up street art festivals and stages all over Europe. In addition to their rolling bar, this neo-fanfare post-punk band comes with its own prams and the Kramozaur, a domesticated dinosaur-on-wheels which increases the decibels and heats up the atmosphere even faster than the climate.
