HARDCORE LIVES AGAIN IN:
As you might have guessed already, we have added Cro-Mags JM to the line-up of The Sound of Revolution today. This incarnation of the legendary New York hardcore band headed by John Joseph and Mackie Jayson have been wrecking stages for many years now, including at TSOR 17. We are stoked to welcome them back again on November 2nd.
Unfortunately there is some bad news as well, because GBH have to cancel their performance this year due to logistical issues beyond our control.
Nonetheless, we are looking forward to welcome you all in Eindhoven once again on November 1st and 2nd for two days of hardcore punk. HARDCORE LIVES!
Today we complete the line-up of The Sound Of Revolution 2019 with the addition of 15 new names, such as Dutch punk rock band Heideroosjes, melodic hardcore powerhouse Ignite, UK punk legends UK Subs and LA hardcore band Terror. The festival will take place once again in the Klokgebouw at Strijp-S, Eindhoven on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 November. These bands join bands such as The Bruisers, Youth of Today and Shelter that were already confirmed. Scroll down to check out all the bands!

There are several parking facilities near Klokgebouw. You can find a PDF with all parking spots on the website of Klokgebouw.
You can buy your parking ticket (€ TBA) at the Info Desk of the festival if you want!
You can pay for food and drinks with tokens. The tokens cost € tba each and can be paid for by debit, credit or with cash at our token desks. Please note that some registers are ‘Cash Only’ so you can’t pay by debit card at these registers. It's also possible to withdraw up to an amount of € 100 cash at the token desks.
At the end of the festival (from: time TBA) it's possible to return your left-over tokens up to a maximum of 10 tokens.
Hard cup retour system
During The Sound Of Revolution, we are working with a deposit system for our plastic cups. How does it work? The first time you buy a drink, you will have to pay two tokens. One token counts as the deposit for the plastic cup. Whenever you get a new drink, you give the people at the bar a new token and your cup, to get a new drink.
To exchange your last cup we offer two options:
1. Donate your cup to the Hardcore Help Foundation. You will find special containers at the HHF-stall at the festival. For every cup we will donate € tba to the foundation!
2. The other option is to trade in your hard, plastic cup for € tba at the 'Cup Retour Desk' at the festival. This is possible from (time: TBA).
There is a food court present with vegan food, vegetarian food and food for carnivores. You can buy food and drinks with festival tokens.
Are you 18, but look younger? Get your special 18+ wristband at the Information desk! If there is any doubt about your age at the bar, all you have to do is show your 18+ wristband to get your beer. But if we doubt your age and you don’t have a wristband, you will not be served any alcohol! So if you or your friends think you have a “baby face”, avoid discussions at the bar and get your 18+ wristband at the Information desk.
The festival site is accessible for people with disabilities. There will be no additional platform for people in wheelchairs, but there are toilets with extra space and more.
At the festival you will find an Info Desk. At this point we will have the Lost & Found and 18+ wristbands, but you can also buy ear plugs (€ TBA) and parking tickets (€ TBA) over there. Besides that, the people at the Info Desk are willing to answer every question you have. They also have festival maps and the time schedule for you! Also lockers are available at the Info Desk: € TBA or € TBA for a big one.
Before the party gets started and you’ll enter the venue, we want to make you aware of some practical stuff and specifically our house rules.
The Sound Of Revolution is a festival organized and produced almost entirely by volunteers. So be nice, to us and to each other! Everyone is making an effort to make sure it’s a fun and enjoyable party. Drink plenty of water when it’s hot and don’t forget to eat. Take care of yourself and the people around you, on the festival grounds and in the rest of the city. Think about your ears and wear ear protection. Don’t harass people with other beliefs, just show them music lovers áre open-minded.
The Sound Of Revolution makes an effort to get the best bands to Eindhoven. But unfortunately we cannot avoid accidents or a band has to cancel their whole tour. We can’t do refunds because your favorite band cancelled.
It should all go without saying, but just to make things clear for everyone, here’s a list of things that you are not permitted to bring into the building: Your own food/drinks (unless you have a special diet or medication, and then only after you have permission), glass, surf boards or other attributes to crowd surf with, weapons of any kind or sharp objects, pets and animals, drugs (Klokgebouw has a zero tolerance policy, and we urge you to respect this), flagpoles with flags, umbrellas and canes (with the exception on those medically necessary). Professional photo/film/sound gear is only permitted after strict permission from our organization.
Because we want to keep the festival fun for everyone, provocative clothing will not be allowed. You can (must!) leave it home.
Of course you can bring along: normal (digital) cameras, little spray cans with deodorant and belts. Are you having doubts whether you can take something with you? Ask us!
Children aged 16 and younger are permitted only with guidance and if they have ear protection.
Are you 18, but look younger? Get your special 18+ wristband at the Information desk! If there is any doubt about your age at the bar, all you have to do is show your 18+ wristband to get your beer. But if we doubt your age and you don’t have a wristband, you will not be served any alcohol!
Selling items of any kind without our consent is strictly forbidden. Climbing, fighting and stealing are also forbidden. To make a long story short: don’t be an asshole! If you act inappropriately and don’t listen to any warning, you will be removed from the festival. If your behaviour have caused any damage, you will be charged for the costs.
If you have any more questions, you can ask them at the people of the Info Desk of the festival. At the Info Desk we also sell lockers, parking tickets and ear plugs if you need those and you can also get your festival map and time schedule over there.
Ook dit jaar wordt Dynamo Metalfest weer georganiseerd op de buitenbaan van Ijssportcentrum Eindhoven (ook wel simpelweg bekend als de Kunstijsbaan) aan de Antoon Coolenlaan in het zuiden van Eindhoven.
Binnen/buiten: in overleg met politie en security is afgesproken dat als je eenmaal binnen bent het niet de bedoeling is dat je weer naar buiten gaat. Dit heeft te maken met publieksstromen en veiligheid. Maar ook omdat we geen groepjes barbecuende metalheads op het parkeerterrein willen met Slayer op 10 door de autoradio.
Dus zorg dat je alles wat je nodig hebt meeneemt (voor zover toegestaan). Verder kun je alles krijgen op het terrein: eten, drinken, (gratis) water en er zijn lockers en wc’s. Als je wel naar buiten gaat loop je kans dat je er niet meer in komt!
