Frank Zappa once said: “Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.” We at the Zwemfest committee strongly agree with this and in this spirit, we will work hard this year to organize the best one-day festival in Groningen. It’s not just a festival; We want to be a platform for upcoming bands and artists. In past editions, bands likeVoicst, Orange Skyline, and Yakumo Orchestra en Mysterons gave great performances and this year it will be no different.

Since the study organisations VIP (Psychology) and GHD Ubbo Emmius (history)organized the first edition of the festival in 2002, the committee has been expanded with IDUN (Biology/Life Science and Technology) and Ibn Battuta (spatial sciences). The location of :our festival has been changed as well; From Simplon to a completely sold-out Vera.

This year, the committee consists of chairman Thomas Vos, secretary Jannike Dedow, treasurer Ren de Jong, head of acquisition Floris Rotteveel, programmers Simon Bakker and Arjen Bloem and PR’s Eike van der Weele and Arjan Kuiper. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date! We’ll hope to see you on Thursday 27 September 2018.
