Supersucker replacement >> John Coffey!

Sjock Festival Supersucker replacement >> John Coffey!You may or may not have heard that Supersuckers have cancelled their complete European tour, as Eddie Spaghetti, the bands frontman, will be fighting cancer the coming weeks and months.
So no Supersuckers at Sjock! We wish Eddie a quick recovery anyway and hope to see him back in Gierle very soon!
To help Eddie fight his cancer, a support fund was set up, you can find the link here:
Sjock will also contribute its part to this fund and for every visitor that presents him/herself at the box office, wearing a Supersuckers T-shirt on Saturday 11th of July, we will donate money to the fund!
Let's help Eddie get well soon!

Now, that leaves us with an open spot on our bill and we've had a lot of feedback from you all on who should fill in this spot.
Some realistic, others quite impossible or unaffordable. But we've given it some good thought, and after some negotiating, we believe we've come up with a good replacement for Supersuckers…they played Sjock before in 2013, they are loud, heavy and fast, they are John Coffey!!!

Hope you dig this, like we do.


Supersuckers Cancellation

Sjock Festival Supersuckers CancellationWe regret that Supersuckers have to cancel their European tour due to Eddie Spaghetti's health.

This means Supersuckers will not be able to play Sjock. We are looking out for a suitable replacement, and we appreciate your input, if you have a good suggestion to fill in Supersuckers spot, let us know!

We wish Eddie a speedy recovery!
