Last weekend, a whole host of punk and hardcore’s royalty descended upon the Belgian town of Meerhout for yet another weekend of pits, riffs and chaos. Groezrock 2017 established itself as the first main port of call for the 2017 festival season, doing so in style with a line-up which boasted the likes of Parkway Drive, Deftones and Thrice. Trusty photographer Sebastiaan de Vries braved the crowds and returned from Meerhout with plenty of shots from across the two-day event.
