Inter-Faculty Rockrally (IFR)
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to be the admired frontman (mostly in the shower probably)? Are you tired of playing just for your dog? Do you have a secret urge to play on a stage? Then leave your garages behind and give it a shot on the 33rd edition of the Interfacultaire Rockrally!
VTK and LBK join forces for the second year in a row to organize the most awesome event in Leuven. IFR is a prestigious music contest between bands, every student association (of a faculty) can send in a band that will do everything to get on of those desired final spots. The final takes place on Monday the 13rd of March (2017) on the coolest stage of Leuven (and surroundings): Het Depot. To get there, you will need to struggle your way through two qualifier rounds. These rounds take place on Monday the 21st of November in 'De Baarr' and Tuesday the 22nd of November in 'Vleugel F'. During every part of the competition, the audience and a jury will judge the performances. It surely will not be the first band that will make his way to a further career because of IFR…
The rules are as follows: one band member has to be a member of the student association that is being represented. Only one band per association is allowed and half of the band members have to be students. The assignment: fill a setlist of 20 minutes with own songs and one cover. Interested? Send all of the info (band name + band members + student association) to email@example.com.
Besides taking care of the organization of the actual rockrally, IFR also provides the students of Leuven of a rockparty for the lovers of the better guitarwork with genres from alternative rock to postrock, punkrock to hardcore, ska to indierock. This event should not be missed and takes place the 11th of October at ‘t Elixir!
Music would not be music if it were not possible to play it yourself. For those who would like to share their singing talents, are not allowed to drum their hearts out at home, or those who are up for a cosy musical get-together, there is also a jamsession/open mic on Monday the 14th of November.
For those about to rock, we salute you! The IFR team.
