Volcom Entertainment is delighted to announce the return of the Volcom Garden Experience to Pier15 in Breda Netherlands, for another epic edition on the 22nd of June 2024.

The one-day mini-festival concept is a physical embodiment of Volcom’s "True To This” mantra by providing a creative hub for the local scene with an emphasis on both regional and global creators, makers, musicians, artists and anyone who needs an outlet to express their passion. 

The eclectic line-up will consist of live bands and DJs, skateboarding challenges with prizes on offer and a creative market which will gather an array of artists revolving around the Volcom universe.

PIER15 is much more than just a skatepark, it’s a true space of expression and entertainment for the local community. And after two very successful editions of the event on its docks it was a no brainer to come back!

THE BANDS

MELTHEADS

Meltheads have been spreading wildfire on stages in Belgium and The Netherlands for a good while now, driven by the metronomically tight rhythm section of Tim Pensaert (bass) and Simon de Geus (drums), and fuelled by the razor-sharp and skilful guitar of Yunas de Proost. And then there’s frontman Sietse Willems, a man born to be on stage, like Morrison, Plant and Iggy Pop in one brutal and gnarly package. On 9 February they released their long-awaited debut album ‘Decent Sex’

KARKARA

KARKARA means “Punks / Slackers” in Tunisian.
Slackers because we all feel out of place in this society that gives us the feeling of going 240 km/h into a wall and we don’t want to go there. So if we’re going to crash into that wall it better off be a wall of amps, and if we can get high in the process it’s even better.

ABOUT VOLCOM ENTERTAINMENT

2023 marks something of a rebirth for Volcom Entertainment, the independent record label founded in 1995, brainchild of Volcom co-founder Richard Woolcott and Volcom’s first sponsored snowboarder Ryan Immegart, who also was and still is theLINE’s singer/guitarist.
 
Today Volcom Ent’s mission is to reconnect our passion for experiencing the power of music and the arts with others. Our goal is to use lessons we learned prior to the modern social media era to build awareness for our artists and adapt those same DIY spirit and “punk” ethos to the energy we see happening now. 
 
V-Ent comes back in the shape of a community with a variety of creative initiatives and tools connecting musicians, creators, and enthusiastic music fans worldwide to be discovered or to discover their next favorite artist.
