The first 2012 edition took place on Saturday 28 in Merz, Dordrecht. Three Labtones artists got the chance to present their music to a live audience in a great atmosphere. First on stage was Annik (NL). They played a very interesting mixture of rock, funk and soul. Singer Anneke has a very special and beautiful voice, which perfectly fits the original music. The fact that she sometimes also played the trumpet certainly adds to the originality.

Next, Fraud the Band (IE) gave a set. In a very small setting (voice/guitar and flute), they played folk music with an Irish sound. A group of people gatheredsilently in front of the stage to enjoy the intimate and beautiful songs.

Grant Moff Tarkin (BE) gave the final show of the night. And what a show it was. Their music is very original and creative, and clearly inspired by artists from earlier years. They sometimes even sounded like a crossover between Velvet Underground and Neil Young. Singer Julax has a good voice and looks like she is completely absorbed by the music. And so was the audience!
