Bob Vylan is one of a kind. The duo from London consists of singer Bobby and drummer Bobbie. One is an essential and central mouthpiece, the other a rhythm maker and guardian, a leader of the audience, a master of calmness. With their unique combination of grime and punk rock, this duo can be called a genre-transcending collective.

The duo formed in 2017 and played their first show two weeks later. The first releases on their own label, Ghost Theater, soon followed. In 2022, the album Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life was released, which scored highly in the UK charts and won Kerrang’s ‘Best Album of 2022’ award. The duo’s lyrics deal with social and political issues such as racism, police brutality, unequal income distribution, access to healthy food, gentrification, Hollywood’s influence on the working class and the influence of necessary medicines on the population.

Best of all? The band indicated during a show at festival Down the Rabbit Hole that Groningen is their favourite city, and they would be only too happy to move here. So this will be a show to remember for sure!
