Jelusick confirmed !

Jelusick confirmed !

For the first time in its long history, RAISMES FEST will be welcoming a Croatian group, and not just any group. Indeed, Dino Jelusick's namesake band includes the talented guitarist Ivan Keller, who appeared with Marco Mendoza at Bully on Rocks in 2022.

Dino Jelusick, a super-star in Croatia, already has an impressive carreer, having toured in recent years with his band ANIMAL DRIVE (1 album in 2018 already with Ivan Keller), he sang on DIRTY SHIRLEY album in 2020 with George Lynch on guitar (DOKKEN). also in the TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA in 2022, released an album under the name JELUSICK in September 2023 and formed a metal-prog supergroup with Derek Sherinian and Ron Thal, WHOM GODS DESTROY, whose album was released on 15 March.

Not forgetting, of course, his participation in the (sadly shortened)  WHITESNAKE's farewell tour in 2022 as keyboardist and, above all, vocal support for David Coverdale. In short, it's an immense singer and his band that we'll have the pleasure of welcoming to Raismes on Sunday 8 September.

Thomas Frank Hopper will be part of it

Second announcement and second "incredible talent" emerging, this time from our Belgian friends: Thomas Frank Hopper and his energetic and original rock/blues rock with a voice with intonations......at times (take a listen to "Come closer" studio version and the excellent live performance below). 1 EP and 2 albums to his credit, with the latest, "Paradize City," released last year being a real must-see. A concert not to be missed under any circumstances!

Kim Melville is the first confirmed artist

The honor of opening the line-up for the 24th Raismes Fest goes to the talented Kim Melville, who gave a more than convincing show at last year's Handi-Rock-Bike. An excellent singer and guitarist, she's been immersed in a multitude of musical influences since childhood, and will be performing a varied set with influences from blues, rock, country to glam, classic rock and even metal. There's no doubt that Raismes Fest audiences will love her!
