Rebels of the Sacred Heart

Rebels of the Sacred Heart: a tribute to Flogging Molly

You can say what you want, but if there is one band that knows how to throw a party it has to be Flogging Molly. With their up-tempo folk-punk this Irish/American band led by guitarist/vocalist Dave King knows exactly how to get the crowd going.

Dutch tribute band Rebels of the Sacred Heart comes very close to the real deal. Every show is truly a
tribute to the no-nonsense and highly accessible folk-punk from the band from Los Angeles, California.

“We’re Rebels of the Sacred Heart and this is what we do, so put on your dancing shoes and sing your
drunken lullabies on the devil’s dance floor!”

Rebels of the Sacred Heart will play on Sunday on the Yule Stage at the Castlefest Winter Edition.

The band members are:

– Robin “Skottie” Slutter: lead vocals, acoustic guitar
– Robbert Arentz: electric guitar
– Rens Bourgondiën: bass guitar
– Jeffrey Hartjes: drums
– Hanneke Rinders: fiddle, tin whistle
– Gwendo Jansen: accordion
– Sjoerd van Ravenzwaaij: banjo, mandolin, tin whistle

Flannery Castlefest Winter Editie


Flannery is a Scottish folk rock band with only one mission: creating an unforgettable party that the audience will always remember. The band makes this happen with their music filled with Scottish, Celtic but also Irish influences. Flannery means flat land and is the perfect name for the chilly men, who want to entertain with raw but also snappy, melodious music.

The repertoire of Flannery is varied. Instrumental, folk, rock and even rap will be played by the band. They write the music and the lines themselves which gives the music its unique feel. These men do everything possible to create an unforgettable party. Fine rock music with the bearing tones of the bagpipe!

Flannery plays on Saturday at the Castlefest Winter Edition.

Ball Noir Castlefest Winter Editie

Ball Noir

Like obsessed alchemists, Ball Noir mixes electronic metal with medieval and classical instruments such as the harp and the hurdy-gurdy. Inspired by their heroes from Anathema, My Dying Bride and Qntal they compose their own music: medieval metal with a longing for haunting melodies, dark fantasies and smashing heartbeats.

Ball Noir plays on Saturday at the Castlefest Winter Edition.
