Talking about Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2018, the label founder Casper Dee explains: “A big part of what we at Fuzz Club want to do this year is take a step back from being just a label and go about celebrating the amazingly far-reaching and creative scene we find ourselves so lucky to be involved in. One of the ways we’re planning on doing that (and trust us, this is just the start!) is with Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2018. We really wanted to create an event that brings together this huge international community and showcases the bands in the best possible way – and what better way than throwing a huge two-day party with heaps of our friends! It’s going to be a pretty special weekend.”
