MANUPALOOZA is a ludicrous joke that has been carrying on on and off for a while. Manu still thinks it’s funny.
It is a festival where pals play for each other.
It is a festival where new music is oozed out.
There will be bands, there will be DJs, there will be food, there will be stands, and there are always last minute surprises.
It’s on a Sunday, but doors open at 18.00 and there is a non-stop program, short setlists, many changes, lots of genres that usually are never ever programmed together. Take the Monday morning off.
