According to the bible quote of the year:
God says: I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. (Book of Revelations 21,6)
The new place has running water, and electricity directly from the walls, and … CAUTION!!! Internet and mobile phone reception!
We are completely in love and look forward to seeing you on the new ground!

Aanstaande 3 maart zijn we Snoeihard terug! In De Helling als nieuwe locatie, maar met hetzelfde idee: wij draaien, jullie dansen!
De moddervette beats vliegen je om de oren als nooit te voren.
Doe dingen en dans.
the past months have been quite challenging and intense for us in the organising committee. Above all, the pending issue of water supply and regulations from the local agency for nature conservation (which surfaced during the last Freakstock) have forced us to put our plans on hold. Despite of tiring cycles of reminding, waiting, urging, hoping, praying, and demanding, we still have no results or statements, making it impossible to continue with concrete planning. In consequence, Freakstock 2017 cannot take place.
There`s nothing we would rather do than procede as always with preparations for our beloved Jesus Festival this summer, with you and for you. However, doing so while risking a short term cancellation with drastic consequences for us all is not an option. Though in our hearts we feel „we are definately doing Freakstock!“, there is also this little cautioning voice saying „this year, it is not to be“. With heavy hearts we have come to the conclusion: Freakstock goes Sabbatical.
This year, in the spirit of the original meaning of the Sabbath, we will pause and let go instead of clinging on to something at all costs. And we felt it would be fair to communicate this to you as soon as possible. We`d like to use this year to reflect on Freakstock, improve what has worked so far and dream about new concepts as well. For we are sure of one thing: We will see you at Freakstock 2018!
We hope you spend this summer having a marvelous time, missing Freakstock and perhaps thinking about new ideas on how you can participate next year!
For six years plant your fields and gather your crops. But during the seventh year do not plow your land or use it. Then the poor people who are among you can get food from it. The wild animals can eat what is left over. Do the same thing with your vineyards and your groves of olive trees. – Exodus 23, 10-11

As a worshipper at Freakstock you receive the staff-status, which means reduced entry, free delicious food (full board, yeah) and as much water as you can possibly drink. Unfortunately, we do not have a budget for travelling costs or payments.
During the day there are different slots for worship. Each Worshipper/Combo will have 1 to 2 Slots during Freakstock, probably at different times and on different stages during the Festival. Right before every slot there will be time for setups, soundcheck and praying. For all those things a Guide will support you and be there for you … whether in terms of nervousness-combating, organization, companionship.

This year several international leaders form different parts of the world said that they will participate at Freakstock (27th to 31th July 2016 in Allstedt, Germany). They are ready to support us in Germany and pass on what God gave them as vision and insight for our country and for Europe.
We are living in exciting and stirring times where God is building his kingdom also and purposely at an international level. Everywhere new forms and ideas of networks are springing up. Specifically it is about:
what is right now really happening from a spiritual perspective and how can we learn to live and connect with all those newly arrived people in germany from the middle east
Multiplication of the kingdom of God locally in all its forms and colours
New ways of discipleship and mission in our continent
God gave them some deep insight into these things which they will share with us and they want to challenge and encourage us in that. On Thursday and Friday, between 2:30 and 3:20pm at the Quiet’n Riot there will be a meeting-place where you can meet with us – getting to know each other, exchange, pray, dream, network and think further together.
If you are searching for yourself personally or your group, church or organisation new companions and friends, impulses and inspiration in these areas then just come along and lets get to know each other. We will do spontaneous meetings, workshops, prayer-times and conversations.
Unti now those people have said yes to be there:
Andrew Jones / Neuseeland, World-Traveller
Wolfgang Fernandez / Los Angeles
David Campbell /Youth with a mission, USA
Jim Yost / Indonesia
Florian Bärtsch / Switzerland
Wolfgang Simson / Author of “Houses that will change the world”
Dave Andrews / Australien, one of the main-speakers
Eno / Bulgarien, he is building communities mainly among turkish-speaking people in europe
Yacouba / Niger, Afrika

our ticket presale startet. Some things will change this year.
For over 10 years we were able to keep the ticket price constant, but due to risen costs, that won’t be possible in 2016 and we have to raise the price by 10€. Current prices can be seen here.
But we have good news as well:
We changed out ticket system. You can order online and print your ticket at home. It will be scanned at your car and you can drive through to the camping space. You safe time but also money.
There are no more shipping cost and the booking fee drops from 5€ to 3.50€. This balances a part of the raise.
The family tickets One&All and Two&All can be bought in advance for the first time. So no more standing in line with your kids in the sun. Yippee!
U-NITE Gathering take place from 25 to 28th August 2016. The main vision of this event is to unite people from the different linguistic regions of Belgium for a weekend of unity and creativity. Similar to Freakstock there will be concerts, DJs, workshops.
The organisators are looking for bands, volunteers, visitors … Mail to:
If you ask people why they come to freakstock, they might say:
I found a home here!
This feels like family!
Here, I feel accepted!
The heart of our home is Jesus. We were created as Gods counterparts and feel restless until we meet him and come into his home.
The gift of that home is not a given. Many people in our society yearn to find a place that feels like home, and desperately search for it somewhere, somehow. Some things actually look good or give a feeling of safisfaction, such as success, family life, commitment to noble ideas… but the last bit is missing. We can’t create the home we long for. We can only accept it over and over again. It is given to us.
To be without a home can put you into turmoil. The despair it creates can become exhausting – for yourself and others. Great good can come from having a home. Here you can find reflief, here you can stand firmly to face new challenges and watch Gods plans unfold.
Let us spread that home this year. Let us be a living invitation for a life with God. Let us build open, welcoming churches, which make it easy to get to know Jesus. Let us open up our houses and our hearts to invite others to be at home.
The invitation stands for us as well: Come Home! No matter where you have been roaming, no matter what you`ve searched for or tried, the doors are open. Be encouraged to open your heart anew and let God in, so that he might give you a home.
There have been 4 long years with silence since Nordicfest had the epic 10th anniversary in November 2011. It was a Grand finale for sure, and we have a lot of wonderful memories. This was the perfect way to end an era. But in the aftermath of the anniversary we could feel that our hearts were still not at peace. A yearning slowly grew through the silence and after a while it gave life to a dream. A dream of gathering the family again. Now the time is here!
From the shadows of the valley of death, Nordicfest is resurrected! This time we will give you a festival that is musically more brutal and extreme then ever before! Blasting bands and amazing people will come together and celebrate faith and friendship! It is a great pleasure for us to welcome you to “Nordicfest 2015 – The Resurrection”! See you in Oslo in September!
– Pål, Oddmund, Stefan, Markus & Rikard
Location: Sub Scene, Rosenkrantz gate 17, Oslo, Norway
The venue is also very special SubScene is an all ages venue in central Oslo. The venue combines a great cafe with top of the line backline and quality productions. The venue is run by SubChurch.
The bands for this years edition are mainly within the brutal and alternative part of metal. Mantric (Extol&Lengsel) and local act Leovov delivers intriguing massive music with a strong metal edge. Without being as brutal as Necroblation (CH) and Norways best hidden doom jewel Dalit.
It’s been quite some time since some of us saw each other. In the meantime new people want to join our international circle and don’t know how to connect. But let’s be honest: We are not as connected as we like to be either. So let’s meet at Freakstockand talk about that. Let’s find out about each other, how we are, what’s going on, what our takes on starting up our network are and where we wanna go from there.
See you at the JFI Space:
Just drop by, get a coffee and sit down. There will be a JFI-PICKNICK Friday, 31.7.2015, at 12:30 a.m. Maybe bring your lunch and have it with us.
Put your name on that list. It’ll be there somewhere.
We will start an emailing group so we get to read from each other once in a while.
Another way to get in touch – whoever you are and whyever you wish to get in international contact, no matter if you are one or many – is to write us at . Sharon from Netherlands, and I, Mona from Austria, will see what we can do for you and how your request fits into that whole picture.
You want to know what’s going on in Germany? Have a look here.
We follow Jesus and to him our heart clings. FULL STOP
Our vision is that in our country, in Europe and everywhere around the world people stand up for Jesus, because an uncompromising life with Jesus is the coolest, heaviest, most intensive and most exciting thing at all.
