EX-RZ is replaced by ... Red Zebra

We lost the art of conversation ... At the end of 2010, Red Zebra burst. Singer Peter Slabbynck founded EX RZ. The four other members, including guitarist and co-founder Geert Maertens, grouped under the name Elements. It was especially EX-RZ who kept the music of Red Zebra Music alive with a set full of Zebra numbers.

We found the art of conservation ... About 6 years later, the five members reconciled. W Festival gets the scoop. Red Zebra will close the festival on Sunday, August 20. Last year EX-RZ closed the festival with a brief surprise appearance. If this year, they will also bring new numbers, it is not yet known. The group now wants to concentrate mainly on the set for the W Festival.

Dear W festers,

Entrepreneurs know this all too well. Managing an event is not simple. You are dealing with people and a lot of worries. And the same applies for the festival organizer.

Last Friday we heard that The Human League can only play on Saturday, the 19th of August - and not on the 20th. Luckily Front 242 could make it on Sunday and so the two headliners made a switch. And also luckily, most booked tickets so far are weekend tickets. What’s really important for us now, is to organize the switch for the day tickets as smooth as possible. And this is how we will do that. Each customer with a day ticket can expect a call from Veerle this week between 18h and 21h. She will consult with everyone how you can all enjoy your favourite bands!

That this is force majeure, that it is clear. We had planned our week differently, but by Friday we want this all sorted out for you!

We conclude this breaking news with a positive message for the early bird campers. Those who already get there on Thursday night, will be spoiled with an exclusive performance by Fiji from Switzerland and for the first time in our country, and Implant – a shooting star from Belgium! Start is foreseen at 22h, so no rush.

If you still have questions after this week, this is the number of the hotline: 0486 131313.

See you soon!
