We're sorry to announce the cancellation of the 17 Years of Orange factory birthday event. We don't seem to find the right bands to complete a line up that we can totally support. In stead of going along with the current tendency for bigger venues and more bands, we prefer to focus on small concerts like the ones we've been organizing for the last 17 years. We started doing shows because a lot of bands we like did not play in Belgium but since the recent increase of stoner, doom and psychedelic festivals in this little country we don't feel like we can add anything on that level for now. Apologies to Dozer and anyone who was looking forward to this.

    Their gig in Sojo's last year was fenomenal, THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX is a 100% bulletproof live experience, a classic power trio combining the versatility of Cream with Mountain’s crushing power and the manic energy of the best hard rock out there. If you are in for this, then come and check 'em out at Tijl in Diest on Friday May 20th (Driving directions). And the perfect support would be THE KILLBOTS, Limburg's own retro rock band.
