For the 19th edition of Nekka and the 1st edition of the ‘Houden Van’ Festival, SLP once again assigned ASP as their technical partner. We assured for both productions an optimal sound quality thanks to the L'Acoustics sound system (36 x V-Dosc , 30 x dV Dosc , 6 x Arc en 16 x SB 218 subs) and 2 Soundcraft VI6 en 2 Soundcraft VI4 digital mixing consoles. The light set existed of 64 Clay Paky units and 18 Vari*lite units in combination with 150 kW conventional fixtures and 2 truss followspots.


The host of the ‘Houden Van’ Festival was Luc Appermont. Like no other he was able to create the perfect atmosphere for artists such as: Rob De Nijs, Free Souffriau and Luc Caals. For Nekka, this year's special guest f was Willem Vermandere, one of Flanders most authentic singer-songwriters. During the evening many other artists joined him on stage such as Lisbeth List, Raymond Van het Groenewoud, Yevgueni, Axel Peleman, Mira, etc. According to the Belgian newspaper 'The Standaard' it was one of the best Nekka editions ever! With Nekka's 20th anniversary coming up, we are already looking forward to the next edition.
