Greppelpop 2008

It was amazing, it was awesome, thoroughly enjoyable!!!

Met cool people, made music and had a lot of fun, shared a stage with cool musicians and made new friends!
Among wich “Misty Basement” and “Little Mystic” sticked out.
We especially enjoyed meeting up with “Mala Vita” a folk punk rock band, memorably great bunch of people!

Marianne Fortuin, for Hart van Holland wrote:

Striking because of original music was the band Driftkikker. When asked for the origin of their name Daddo the singer/songwriter and gitarist of the band said: “We all three are not particularly impetuous but rather emotional. Fortunately we get along very well with each other and agree with the direction where we want to take our music to.”

You can check the photos of our performance at the media section.
