MAASTRICHT. The Dutch DJ duo Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano will be the closing act of the Inkom’s final party in the Mecc on Friday 23 August. The Inkom Working Group presented the names of the artists during the pre-Inkom drink last Monday. For the opening event on the Markt, on Monday evening, they did not choose a well-known Dutch artist (like Ali B in 2012, Alain Clark in 2011, Waylon in 2010, and Gordon in 2009), but the Heeren van Aemstel Band, performing alongside Jaap Reesema, Joost Marsman and Leonie Meijer. Marsman was the singer of Is Ook Schitterend (I.O.S.), Reesema won on the Dutch X Factor show in the third season, and Leonie Meijer was fourth in The Voice. Another artist who has not been overlooked this year, is - ‘Sjiek is miech dat’- Fabrizio from Maastricht. The opening event is free of charge.
On the Thursday, for the first time, there will be AquaDANCE, a pool party in the new Geusselt swimming pool with DJs Lucas & Steve. During the Mecc party on Tuesday evening, there will be performances by cover band JeWelste, DJs Roul & Doors, and DJ Jeroen Nieuwenhuize.
The Inkom - the introduction week for all new students to Maastricht University and Zuyd Hogeschool - will last five days instead of four. This year’s theme is Challenge accepted.
