Friday: 22u00 - 04u00 MONSTER ENERGY opening party by DJ MIKE ROCK

Mike Rock is djin' all around the world (usa, china , europe , russia) since ten years, and he's back to Groezrock opening party to celebrate it. He is a DJ who has never been able to decide between rock n roll and punk rock sounds. So it's like for whiskey and coca: it mixes the two. His motto is simple, clear and precise: drink, dance and have a good time. He is the official DJ of Monster Energy and almost every public event where you push a skateboard and where it is fashionable to wear a cap with a large visor Suicidal Tendencies logo . Well, by the way, if you had not noticed: in the pseudo of Mike Rock, cleverly concealed, there is the word "rock", eh."

Saturday: 01u00 - 04u00 by Rude boys outta jail Soundstation!

Born and raised at the world famous Bacchus cafe and festivals like Reggae Geel, Retie Rockt, Rock Stenen, Een paar hete zomers, Fiesta Mundial, etc. And famous for their killer after party last year at Groezrock.

We present you again:
Rude boys outta jail Soundstation!

They'll bring you the perfect mix of ska, reggae, punkrock, metal and balkan music. They know how to start a party and definitlely how to keep it going. Time to skank your booty! Music from the people to the people straight outta Geel.

Sunday: 23u00 - 04u00 by DB groezzmachien

These 2 know each other for a long time. Zoemba, born as an unwanted child on a 13th , is almost 30 years a dj and nobody can’t stop him! Don’t be afraid for the beast on stage, it just came out of his cage, be prepared for “e specioaal geval”!
DJ National is a local dj who started playing in the pubs (and bars) of Meerhout 16 years ago. He will make the speakers pop by playing some tunes of Johnny Cash, Flogging Molly,... or even Hatebreed. Just listen to the beat, enjoy some alcohol and all the Groezrockers will JUMP DA FUCK UP

GROEZROCK joined forces with BBQ-Team "SMOKE on the wild side"

SMOKE ON THE WILDE SIDE, is a group of energetic and driven caterers, foodies and restaurant owners that founded a BBQ team in 2012, purely for recreational reasons. Soon however, they started participating in national and international competitions*, which they've been doing regularly the past two years. In these competitions they demonstrate their genuine love for the profession, but even more so, the fun in doing it.

Because they wanted people, who aren't familiar with the delicious BBQ world, to get to know this, they decided to set up a food booth on several summer festivals. Due to its big success they want to do this even more in the future, to please as many festivalgoers as possible with their tasty creations.

On their festival menu you can find dishes such as pulled pork with BBQ herbs, Black Angus entrecote burger, Chicken wings with BBQ Wedges


There will be a special BBQ area.There won't be any GAS BBQs available anymore at the BBQ zone at the campsite. No need to bring your own BBQ or charcoal to the festival. BBQ between the tents is strictly forbidden.

More than that, you don't have to carry around (or keep fresh) all your food you wanted to put on the BBQ. There is a very varied BBQ offer at a reasonable price. 

If you still want to bring your own meat/dishes, you can get these baked/grilled/fried by professionals for only 1/2 (half) drink ticket.


20:00 - 02:00, Thursday
12:00 - 02:00, Friday
12:00 - 22:00, Saturday
