The largest underground music festival of Belgium, Pukkelpop 2019, a report of day 3.
We’ve pointed out the visit of hip hop legend, Mike D (Beastie Boys) for the 3rd day at Pukkelpop Unfortunately, the Beastie Boys no longer exist due to the tragic death of Adam Yaugh or MCA, but kinda hoped for the presence of Ad-Rock or Adam Horovitz. Unfortunately Ad-Rock wasn’t present yesterday, but we do must say that the gig of Mike D and his DJ can be describes in just 1 word, “excellent”. Funk, house and of course hip hop passed by quickly. Starting with So What Cha Want, Brass Monkey, following with Dr. Dre’s Nuthin But a G Thang, a beautiful A Tribe Called Quest tribute offering Can I Kick It, Check The Rhime, Scenario and ending with the Beastie’s huge hit, Intergalactic. Because of this performance we missed Meute, but this was captured by the electro house and rave tinted music of The Subs. Thé moment of Anne-Marie, on the mainstage, was the Clean Bandit song of Rockabye. The grey dark clouds and rain turned out to be no damper on the celebrations on the festival and we closed day 3 on Pukkelpop with Paul Kalkbrenner. (JL)
