MAASTRICHT. Lyrics by Nirvana poured like a sauce over the music of the Final Countdown. It's those types of mash-ups that new first-years can expect when Daredevils play during the Inkom opening event on the Markt. They are one of the few bands that will come to Maastricht from 21 until 25 August. Most of the music at the Inkom parties will come from DJs. Freddy Moreira will be on the Markt on Monday, Funky Risotto at the festival on Tuesday. In the evening, Lucas&Steve will be in the MECC. The introduction week will be closed by the Maastricht cover band Dubbel Fout and DJ duo Bassjackers. Especially the latter met with a lot of applause during the Pre-Inkom drink in the Kruithuis last Monday, when the artists’ names were announced. A remarkable absentee is in the line-up is dialect singer Fabrizio, who was present on the Markt almost every year since 2010.
The Inkom Working group has also incorporated a few minor changes in the programme. In addition to the Sports Event, there is now also a workout for the early birds in the UM Sports Centre (on Wednesday and Friday). The cultural festival CultiFest has been moved from the Stadspark to the Bonnefanten Museum. A stage will be installed there near the water and visitors to the museum can see what Limburg and Maastricht has to offer in terms of culture.
