Finally the winds are favourable enough to hoist the anchor and set sail: Elfia here we come!
Since the spectre of Corona is still haunting the world, we will be well on our guard and set foot on Elfia’s shores with extreme caution. Our barber-surgeon, Hacksaw Henry, has stowed his crates with potions, amulets, peglegs, leeches, protective gear and his hamster, Mr. Celsius who can sniff out a fever from a mile away….well…at least from 5 centimetres.
Anyway, we have missed you all like crazy and are looking forward to see all you scallywags again.
We come protected and even though the revelling will be less lecherous as we’re used to, we’re prepared to party like it’s 1699.
Meanwhile: stay safe and see you all in Arcen!
beloved Crew.. Harsh times ask for harsh meassures.. It is with sadness
in our pirate hearts that we see the Yellow jack fluttering across the
seven seas.. Harbors are beeing closed for the safety of our
scallywags.. Therefore we shall not set sail to Elfia and Keltfest and
our journeys beyond are still uncertain. Our armada is anchored, using
all different means to natter and sing.. Expolore the horizon with yer
virtual looking glass and enjoy the artists across the World Wide Sea
doing thar best to amuse you! Keep yer distance and stay positive! Open
up that fine cask of Cooper’s Rum.. Let us hope this plague comes to an
end real soon..

We would like to wish a fantatastic and healthy 2020 to you and your loved ones! Last year was very important and joyfull to us as it was the year that the BlackPowder community was born. We can’t thank you enough for sharing all those beautiful moments and parties with us! We hope to see eachother at one of the coming activities so we can make 2020 even better! Please have a look at our upcoming events in the right section of our website.
Castlefest 2019 was again a Fantastic Festival, hosted by the beautiful people of Vana Events.After setting up the camp, we could immediately get into action with a performance of Harmony Glen, Followed by a great Sunfire Concert!
On Friday, we had the honour to listen to the wonderful music of VarendVolk, brought by our good friends at Plunder and Pyrolisis! Our singles got to meet new people at the speeddating, while others listened to the wake up call at the La Horde Pyjama Party.
The BlackPowder crew had such an amazing time with these bands before and after the gigs and at the festival site itself. With the few sparks of energy we had left we went to the silent disco and got totaly exhausted! Thanks to everyone who made this festival so amazing! Make sure to check out our pictures in the Gallery.
Last weekend, BlackPowder has anchored at our favorite watering hole, the Tortuga Bar in Durbuy, Belgium. The Commodore and his QuarterMaster Gheckoo made sure no bottle of rum was left untouched! Merci les gars pour le bon acceuil et une visite inoubliable. Make sure to check our gallery for more pictures! #TortugaBarDurbuy
During the weekend of July 6th And 7th, at El Mundo Fantasia in Landgraaf.. We were treated to several concerts of Sassenachs in a very different style as the one we have come to know and love them for. Having replaced part of the wardrums for electric guitars, a fullfledged drumkit and a keytar they have rocked our socks off!! After keeping us dancing and singing to exhaustion during the closing concert on Sunday, Laird Peter de Wit and Clan Sassenachs graciously agreed to pose with our small BlackPowder delegation, resulting in another great asset for our Wall of Friends. “Lang may yer lum reek” !!
