28/06/2023 - Sjock 47 : Recycle Point, End of presale, Lockers
Only 9 days till Sjock..
Time to get practical :
* Sjock will use reusable cups, please gather them and bring them to our recycle points.
You'll get 1 token for every 6 cups or bottles !!! (no damaged cups). This makes your drinks even cheaper.
* Important : no camping (tents, seats, drinks, ....) on our parking. The past years we had lots of waste on the parking lot, which gets us in trouble with the owner.
We will be very strict this year and you risk to be denied entry to the festival.
Thanks for supporting us !
* This year we will have lockers at the entrance of our festival. Lockers in 2 sizes and some with loading docks for your mobile.
* Presale ends next week on Wednesday, so don't wait any longer to score your tickets here.

Drink and Food Tokens in presale
Our regular visitors know the Sjock site is located in a remote area so 4G is poorly accessible.
Online payments were only limited available last year. We will improve this somehow, but to avoid queues, you can buy your tickets in presale.
You can buy the Token bags together with your entrance ticket or if you already got the entrance ticket, just buy your Token bag now !
1 Token = 1 Belgian beer (or lemonade or wine, ...)
You will receive your Tokens at the entrance were you get your Sjock wristband.
Your Rock 'n' Roll Highlight of the Year !
03/05/2023 - Sjock 47 - Tami Nelson cancels for Saturday
Sad news from @tamineilsonmusic
"As many of my fans will know, I am still in recovery from sepsis after multiple emergency surgeries earlier this year. I am trying to keep my commitments to as many shows as I can while still being careful. It is why there are not as many shows as I would normally play in 2023 and why I unfortunately cannot get to every town or city I would like to. It’s also part of why I chose to base myself in North America and predominantly travel in a motorhome with my family for 5 months- to reduce long flights where I can, for the benefit of both my physical and my mental health while touring. Unfortunately there are a couple shows I have had to cancel that my Dr has advised against due to extensive travel. I’m afraid one of those shows is the Sjock festival in Belgium in July. I’m very sorry to let my fans in Europe down and hope to be back to play for you next year when hopefully my health is fully restored. Thank you for your understanding."
