FemME Fatale – A hot weekend in the Netherlands!
Translation: Hanna Häßlein
For the first time, it wasn’t the organizer Ton Dekkers who hosted the festival this year but the tattoo-model Femke Fatal. She was able to fill those big footsteps and did a great job with announcing every single one of the 26 participating bands who performed, as per usual, on two stages. The large audience, which had the opportunity to enjoy this event for three days in a row, was clearly satisfied.
|Judith Rijnveld (Kingfisher Sky).|
|Janika Groß (Molllust).|
Marcela Bovio (ex Stream of Passion) was the first festival highlight with her new solo project – especially since she didn’t only perform with a keyboard but also with a string quartet. This made for an original album constellation. She shone with exceptional vocals, soulful strings and showed a lot of emotion – maybe because on this very day her debut album “Unprecedented” was released.

|Marieke Bresseleers (Circle Unbroken).|
|Micky Huijsmans (End of the Dream).|
Following them, Ex Libris and Dianne van Giersbergen took the stage. Unfortunately, however, we missed the performance due to a video-interview. Yet, since the interview was a success, the regret was very short-lived.
|Zuberoa Aznárez (Diabulus in Musica).|
|Kobra Page (Kobra and the Lotus).|
|Peggy Meeussen (Bliksem).|
|Emmanuelle Zoldan (Sirenia).|
The day was finished by The Charm the Fury, The Birthday Massacre and Eloyse. Unfortunately, we were not able to see them.
|Models mit der Kollektion "Freak Chique".|
|Lisette van den Berg.|
|Claudia Michelutti and Co. (Valkyre).|
|Sara Squadrani (Ancient Bards).|
|Laura Guldemond (Shadowrise).|
|Vicky Johnson (Winter in Eden).|
|Dianne van Giersbergen (Xandria) und Publikum.|

|Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy).|
|Michelle Nivelle (Hell City).|
The third volume of the Female Metal Event was just as successful as its last performance. Influenced by various genres and bands from all over the globe, the festival 2016 offered even more diversity than last year. Hence, the bands’ and staffs’ and, most importantly, the audiences’ mood was on top. Even though the audience had grown this year, the cozy and familiar atmosphere at the FemME could be maintained – very special, considering all the big names in the Line-Up. We are already very excited to see what the next year will bring – cheap Early Bird Tickets are already available!
More pictures of the bands as well as video-interviews will follow soon!
