Jera On Air - 2 days of punk, hardcore and metal
Where Belgium has Groezrock, The Netherlands have Jera On Air and on June 13 and 14 the 22nd edition of this festival will take place. Jera On Air is a two-day alternative festival in the south of the country, with the main focus on punk(rock), hardcore and metal music. The rich history, the size of the festival and the quality acts they book make them the country’s biggest of its kind. Just reading that bands like Dropkick Murphys, Hatebreed, Architects and Zebrahead will perform should be enough, but if this isn’t convincing enough we’ll give you some other tips as well.

Like mentioned before, Architects and Zebrahead are two of the bands that top the bill on the Friday night of the festival. With the strong album Lost Forever // Lost Together, the guys of Architects are celebrating a beautiful, and during their show a probably powerful and energetic, 10 year anniversary. Zebrahead on the other hand is here just to party hard. With their catchy music they will sure get the audience bouncing up and down. But there is more this first day, for example The Black Dahlia Murder. Just dropping this name should be enough in my opinion. Thundering melodic death metal, but above all a great live band. But besides the renowned acts it’s always fun to discover something new and in that case I can recommend the White Russian Records showcase. In the name of this record label The Lowest Standard, Said And Done, Note To Amy and Screw Houston, Start Screaming will kick you in the face with some energetic punk rock and/or hardcore.
 
The Saturday will be headlined by hardcore giants Hatebreed and working-class folk punk heroes Dropkick Murphys. Both perfectly know how to entertain a crowd and do it both in an admirable way. But since you all probably already know them I will focus on some other acts. Like Letlive. for instance. Back in 2010 their second full-length, Fake History, made a lasting impression, at least it did on me. Powerful, catchy, emotional, passionate; the album incorporated every element a post-hardcore album should have. And on stage? They’ve toured two months with the Warped Tour and according to its visitors this is the best live act at the moment.
 
Another band definitely worth checking is the Welsh down tempo hardcore outfit Brutality Will Prevail. A month ago they released their new album Suspension Of Consciousness and this hard-hitting band with a “no-fuck-is-given”-approach will now present their new music with a new line-up to the audience on the European mainland. This rough diamond might become one of the unexpected highlights of the festival.
 
The whole line-up: Dropkick Murphys, Hatebreed, Of Mice & Men, We Came As Romans, Architects, Against Me!, Zebrahead, Letlive., Emmure, First Blood, The Black Dahlia Murder, Born From Pain, The Amity Affliction, The Charm The Fury, Brutality Will Prevail, Napoleon, AYS, Gnarwolves, Antillectual, The Filaments, Faintest Idea, The Octopussys, Call It Off, For I Am King, The Lowest Standard, Said And Done, Note To Amy and Screw Houston, Start Screaming.
