The Icelandic band Hatari plays in the Netherlands for the first time since its participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. Hatari 's (political) sources of inspiration include Theresa May, Ian Curtis (Joy Division), Die Antwoord, Noam Chomsky and Naomi Klein. In the run-up to the Eurovision Song Contest, the controversial band's BDSM outfits, anti-capitalist electro-punk and political statements received a lot of attention and made the band the odd man out.

It's probably the first time that a Eurovision finalist performs at an alternative festival. The combination is nevertheless quite logical, says director and chief programmer of the Baroeg Open Air festival Leon van Rijnsbergen: “Our festival focuses on a lot of different hard and alternative genres, such as metal, gothic, hardcore, punk, rock ('n roll), EBM, industrial and breakcore. This act fits perfectly in between. ”
