On Friday night September 30 the DAG HAP festival will kick off with a concert featuring three exciting bands. At 8 pm the festival will be officially opened by Marnix Norder (alderman for city development, housing and integration).

Philson (starts 8.30 pm)
Rock music from the village of Schagen in the province of Noord Holland. Not bound by any specific style, Philson is driven by a sense of urgency. It must happen here and now!

John Dear Mowing Club (starts 9.30 pm)
Last year this popular band from The Hague travelled to Texas to perform at the prestigious South by Southwest festival. For Melle de Boer, visual artist and leader of the band, it was an unforgettable experience to visit the southern states of America, the home of the music he is inspired by. Now the band is back in its home town. Come and see them at DAG HAP!

Trio Escobar (starts 10.30 pm)
Ex-members of Burma Shave have reunited to form a new band: Trio Escobar (powered by Paard van Troje. This surfrock band have invented their own modern alternative for ‘feeling groovy', the ‘feely groove'. Join in and dance your socks off! www.myspace.com/trioescobar
