Kraak Festival 2023
Here’s to KRAAK Festival’s 2023 return, back for yet another loaded day in the shrubbery of Antwerp’s trippiest woods! For its third edition at Het Bos, KRAAK Fest assembles a motley troop of sound makers and breakers from the underbush of the experimental at large. The call of Italian warsongs, the melodrama of burdened masculinity, the poetry of humble earthenware, the invented languages of goblin electronica, the jagged shrillings of steel and glass and cowhide and whatever gadgetry can be found to make noise almost incarnate ~ and that’s just a sampler of the bountiful phenomena to witness at this year’s reunion of sonic oddities and buzzed-out camaraderie. There’s much intense memory-making to be done in these Scheldian backwoods, and it’s always better to be there than to not.
