The 13th edition of the Brainstorm Festival will go into the books as a special corona edition. Instead of two days of fireworks, this year’s festival should be limited to one evening, with room for only two bands. The amount of public has also been limited: there is room for 42 seated visitors.

Now we can mourn the fact that the annual festival cannot take place in normal form. We prefer to look forward to what promises to be a special and intimate evening. Eric Clayton and The Nine (USA / NL) presents their new album and with Scarlet Stories (NL) we have captured a strongly emerging band from the Low Countries.

UPDATE: WOW, the show SOLD OUT in 36 minutes! Super awesome! Thank you to everyone for their support. And for the people who unfortunately cannot be there this year: in 2021 we hope to put on a real bang edition again! And then hopefully you will all be there again!

Singer Anneke van Giersbergen can easily be called the hardest working and most versatile singer in the Netherlands. She will forever be mentioned as a singer of The Gathering but since 2007 she has built up her own solid solo career. That she is a musical chameleon is evidenced by collaborations with artists such as Devin Townsend, Anathema, Icelandic folk group Árstíðir, Napalm Death and BLØF.

2019 was all about the 25-year anniversary of Anneke‘s career, this anniversary was celebrated with 2 sold-out shows in the Effenaar in her own Eindhoven, and she was also rewarded with a Buma ROCKS! Export Award for most successful singer in the heavy genre. Anneke is currently working on a (semi) acoustic album, in order to give her fans a glimpse of what is to come, she sets off solo in March and April 2020 for a number of acoustic performances that will take her to special locations.

Anneke goes to Church is a series of unique performances in an intimate setting. Dates and locations are listed below.
