No 25th anniversary without our favourite Norwegians! Probably no introduction needed for this band that is renowned for their long adventurous concerts in which they bring their songs to a higher level. Since early days they are persistent in refusing to comply and we love them for it.

As Olavsfest rightly put it: "Motorpsycho move continually in and out of musical comfort zones, combining the experimental with the catchy, the unexpected with explicit references from the history of rock - while at the same time remaining first and foremost themselves."

Ufomammut played its first show for Orange Factory in 2000, and since then this Italian power trio has been recognized worldwide for its unique genre of space sludge that combines monumental riffing with futuristic psychedelia. Many albums on Supernatural Cat and Neurot Recordings, tours in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Russia followed and now Ufomammut will return with a new drummer to set Het Depot on fire!

Ufomammut live shows are supported by the art of Malleus, the collective of which Poia and Urlo are part and that is responsible for those gorgeous Orange Factory concert posters!

Since their early days Monkey3 has a strong connection with Belgium through Buzzville Records, so no wonder they did several shows for Orange Factory over the years. Their music has been ever expanding since and the Swiss four-piece has ventured out further and further into Europe from their launch bases at Stickman and Napalm Records.

Those who've seen them recently on Belgian festivals fields know to be prepared for an intens cosmic sound-wall from a spaced-out stoner bastard child of Pink Floyd and 35007.

This tremendous Norwegian powertrio specialises in heavy psychedelic rock jazz with a ferocious Hammond organ and has one of the most tight and groovy rhythm sections around. These past years they've been conquering audiences in Sojo's and surely will do the same in Het Depot!

Veterans on the world's jazz festival circuit, but these musicians also rock; organ player Ståle Storløkken (Supersilent, Humcrush) is known to co-operate with Motorpsycho, Torstein Lofthus used to drum in Norwegian progressive metal band Shining and bassplayer Nikolai Hængsle is also member of Møster! and Needlepoint.



With their own brand of energetic and dynamic psychedelic rock, this Belgian cult band combines strong and heavy sounds with pleasant melodies and jazzy, melancholic and spacey moments. Probably closest to an in-house band we ever had, so glad they'll reunite for our anniversary!

Their sound has obvious hints to King Crimson and Pink Floyd, from dreamy to violent with propulsive interplay, fiery guitar and powerful saxophone. They use a myriad of influences to produce a very vital sound with a sonic power that goes beyond the easily noticeable vintage influences.
