I want to see you screammmmm!!!!

Desi seamana a un refren de cantec, eu chiar vreau sa te vad tipand. Omul tipa deobicei atunci cand emotiile sale ating o intensitate maxima, ori ca e suparat, ori ca e vesel, ori cineva tocmai l-a enervat la culme.

"Screamminnnn`" este un proiect fotografic in care eu vreau sa iti captez aceasta emotie, aceasta clipa in care inima iti bate in piept ca aripile unui colibri si tipatul vine ca o reactie naturala de eliberare. Vreau tipatul tau de bucurie, de suparare, de nebunie.

Acest proiect este lucrarea practica pentru cursul de fotografie pe care l-am urmat in ultimele luni de zile, la CPPC. Cele mai bune poze vor fi printate si expuze in cadrul unui vernisaj public.

Vreau chipuri interesante, freze uschite, cercei, dreads, daca ai tatuaje e si mai bine, vreau multa nebunie, poti sa vii cu amicii daca vrei. Eu aduc muzica (de scandal) si niscaiva bautura, in caz ca nu te-ai hotarat deja in ce fel vrei sa tipi. 

Totul va fi capturat intr-un studio, asa ca nu o sa aiba rost sa iti faci probleme ca te aud vecinii atunci cand tipi. Daca vrei, chiar poti sa imi faci sugestii in legatura cu muzica pe care vrei sa o auzi cat timp esti acolo..dubstep...rock..dnb????


Aaa, sa nu uit ce era mai important!
Cand:  Sambata 14.01.2012 incepand cu ora 15.00.

Unde: Studioul TeleObiectiv, 
          Str. Sagetii nr 6

Deci be there or be square!
Trimite-mi un mesaj pe piriuvlad@yahoo.com sau pe Facebook pentru confirmare de prezenta. Merci!

In caz ca ai nevoie de inspiratie, pozele alaturate iti vor arata ce doresc eu sa se intample sambata:

Surprinzator si unic, specific romanesc: Anul acesta are numai...fiti foarte atenti!!...numai 3 zile

Nu stiu cum se intampla pe la altii, in ceea ce priveste festivalurile si concertele, dar se pare ca pe la noi e altfel. Cineva zicea ca America e tara tuturor posibilitatilor, dar se pare ca s-a inselat amarnic. In tara in care manelistii prospera, caci Uniunea Europeana ne arata cu degetul, cum ca nu ne-am iubi minoritatile, in care preturile sunt comparabile cu cele din Marea Britanie, in care artistii isi permit sa cante pe stadioane cu pozitiv - vezi concertul Madonna din 2009, uite ca la noi anul are numai 3 zile.

Este fenomenal si in acelasi timp unic, dar e adevarat. Sunt curios daca va prindeti la ce ma refer...Nimic? Sa va dau un indiciu? Luna Iulie 2011 va spune ceva? Inca nu va-ti prins? Hai sa va dau alt indiciu: 1-3 iulie 2011? Daca nu va-ti prins, o sa spun eu despre ce e vorba. In mai sus amintita perioada, in Bucuresti si zonele inconjuratoare avem 3 evenimente majore si care, fiecare dintre ele, are darul de a atrage enorme mase de oameni. Care sunt acestea?

Pai e simplu: 1-3 iulie 2011 - ROCK THE CITY @ ROMEXPO, Bucuresti
1-3 iulie 2011 - BESTFEST CAMP @ Pipera Tunari Camp, Bucuresti
2 iulie 2011 - Jamiroquai @ Plaja H2O, Mamaia

Pe scurt, se pare ca pentru unii, anul are numai 3 zile. Daca am avea parte de niste evenimente mai mici, asa, de cartier, am zice: Hai lasa, ca ne strecuram noi! Dar asa, ce naiba sa mai faci?

Daca ai banul pe tine iti iei bilete la toate trei si vezi numai trupele preferate, dar nici asa nu e o solutie, caci ajungi sa te damblagesti la cap si sa pici pe jos de oboseala, dupa ce ai facut un tur de 3 zile intre 2 festivaluri si un concert la mare. Ce te faci atunci cand chiar vrei sa le vezi pe toate? Caci la toate aceste evenimente ai ceva de vazut, in fiecare zi este cate o trupa pe care poate nu o sa o mai vezi niciodata, cum ar fi Judas Priest, Whitesnake. Nu zic, The Prodigy au tot venit pe la noi, dar chiar si asa, tot merita sa ii vezi de fiecare data cand ai ocazia, caci show-ul lor te face sa iti iesi din minti cum poate nu ai avut vreodata ocazia. Deci vezi Prodigy in prima zi de Rock the City, fugi apoi a doua zi la mare pentru Jamiroquai si apoi te intorci fuguta la BestFest Camp ca sa ii vezi pe Pendulum live si apoi te declari multumit.

Pare o solutie, asta asa, ca sa zici ca ai bifat evenimentul si apoi ai trecut la altceva. Dar un festival este mai mult decat muzica. Mai ales ca ambele evenimente, atat Rock the City cat si BestFest Camp anunta o serie de atractii care mai de care mai interesante.

Sunt curios cum va fi cu incasarile anul acesta, mai ales ca suntem in an de criza si toata lumea se va duce acolo unde considera ca are mai multe de vazut. Prevad o multime de bilete de o zi si mult mai putine abonamente, caci mai toti vor vrea sa se duca la ambele, daca nu la toate trei evenimentele. Si sa nu uitam...anul acesta ne viziteaza Bon Jovi, la o saptamana dupa ce aceasta mare vanzoleala se va fi terminat. Cum naiba sa te imparti? Nu stiu coane, dar parca istorioara asta nu prea e una din cele fericite. Un festival pe luna sau chiar la doua luni poate fi mai usor de inghitit, dar 2 festivaluri mari cu nume si mai mari pe frontispiciu, in aceeasi perioada, plus un artist de talia lui Jamiroquai la mare, tot atunci, sunt mult prea greu de inghitit.

Si apropos de festivaluri si concerte, ca tot veni vorba. Daca va numarati printre organizatorii de evenimente, gen festivaluri si concerte: este un anumit fotograf, pe nume Filip Silviu, care are prostul obicei de a-si face acreditare la evenimente, folosindu-se de numele meu sau de cel de FestivalPhoto.net. Daca se intampla acest lucru, va rog frumos sa ii refuzati acea cerere, caci acesta nu are dreptul de a se folosi de numele meu sau de cel de FestivalPhoto.net, nefiind vreun reprezentant nici al meu, dar nici al FestivalPhoto.net. Am patit asta la concertul Scorpions, unde acesta si-a facut acreditare spunand ca este si el de la revista lui Vlad Ionut Piriu...Si nu si-a facut numai lui, dar si intregii familii!!! Sa tot mergi asa la concerte, nu? Moca! A.. si nu a figurat pe lista numai din partea mea, ci si din partea Jurnalului National, tot fara sa fi avut vreo legatura cu acesta. Cat de prost si nesimtit sa fii, mai Filip?

Rock the City 2011 brings to the heart of Bucharest some of the biggest bands of the moment

Rock the City 2011 is an ambitious project, a festival that brings to Romania some of the biggest and best rock bands of all times, said Marcel Avram, the man that brought to Romania names such as Michael Jackson, Metallica. The festival has been officially launched on april 5, after a very busy press conference. The ears of all journalists presents there at the conference have been tickled when names such as The Prodigy, Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Papa Roach, Mike and The Mechanics, Therapy, Hatebreed were announced as the line-up of the festival.

After the initial confirmation of the locations as Piata Constitutiei, the Rock the City Festival was moved to ROMEXPO, the same place where Sonisphere Fest took place last year.
The three days of the festival will keep the people busy with parties organised by the sponsors, and all sorts of surprised.

Some of the bands are a premiere for Romania. Papa Roach, for example, is visiting Romania for the first time.
The third edition of the festival, comes after a 1 year break. The last edition of the festival has brought to Romania bands such as Saga, Queensryche and Lipm Bizkit, and it was held at Arenele Romane. As the need for good and powerful rock music has becaome bigger and bigger, the festival has been moved to a larger arena, in order to accomodate the crowds that will flock to mingle with the stars.
The first names that were confirmed for the festival were Judas Priest – promoting their last world tour, and Whitesnake – promoting their latest album „Forevermore”.
Even if Rob Halford, the lead singer from Judas Priest, has announced that the „Epitaph World Tour” is going to end the prodigious and the prolongue carreer of the group, Glenn Tipton, the guitar player gives some hope to the millions of fans outhere and announces that definettly, Epitaph is not going to mean the end of the band and of the worlwide tours. Presently, the band works to a new material, and if the band is to play, they will play in smaller tours. Halford & Co. have chosen their bands name after a Bob Dylan`s song, „The ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest”, from the album „John Wesley Harding”. Along the ages, Judas Priest has launched 16 studio albums and sold over 40 million disks. Their newest album is „Nostradamus” (2008), and it has reached the 11th place in the Billboard Chart 200.

Also Whitesnake returns to Romania, for a concert in Bucharest. Their Bucharest performance is part of their worldwide promotional tour „Forevermore”, album that was launched in Europe on march 25th. Their first single disk from this album was „Love Will Set You Free” and it also comes with a video. This newest album was produced and arranged by David Coverdale, Doug Aldrich and Michael McIntyre in the Snakebyte and the Grumblenott Studios & Villas in Nevada and California.
Whitesnake is a british rock band that started in 1977 in North Yorkshire), with David Coverdale (ex Deep Purple) as lead singer. The guy is so good in what he is doing, that a lot of voices have said that in fact, Whitesnake is only accompanying David Coverdale and nothing else. VH1 has nominated the band to occupy the 85 position in the Best HardRock Bands of All Times Chart. The first formula of the band brought together names such as David Coverdale, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Neil Murray, David „Duck” Dowle and Brian Johnston, at keyboards, to be soon after misplaced by Jon Lord, from Deep Purple. Their first album was not so succesful, „Whitesnake” being launched in 1977, in a time when punk music was rulling the charts. The newest album, „Forevermore”, was described as having no boundaries, being melodic and full of passion in the same time.
This album has been recorded in a new formula, Aldrich being the only surviver from the origibal crew. In Bucharest, Coverdale will share the stage with Doug Aldrich – guitars, Reb Beach (Alice Cooper) – guitars, Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol) – drums and Michael Devin (Kenny Wayne Shepherd) – bass.

This month, in june, after the long performances in USA, Whitesnake will play in Europe, in Russia, Norway, Sweden, UK, Italyu, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, The Cech Republic, Austria, Serbia, Romania, Bulgary and Turkey.

The tickets are sold exclusively through Eventim.ro and can be bought in the following shops Germanos, Orange, Vodafone, Domo, Humanitas, Cărturești and online on www.eventim.ro.

The tens of thousands of people that will go to the festival will enter the Festival area starting with 2 p.m. in each day of the festival, and the live performances are to start at 5 p.m.

Sound barrier built around Zone Arena for the Roxette concert in Bucharest, Romania

Even if we want to see more and more bands playing live in our city, it seems that sometimes, there are some others that feel the need to complain. It is not that the international stars are not quewing in order to get our attention, it is not that Bucharest still doesn`t have a propper stadium to accomodate the heards of people flocking in order to see their idols on stage, but it seems that now, some people are bothered by the noise those concerts produce. Yeah, you heard very well, it is the noise that it is bothering them.

So was the case after Ozzy Osbourne`s live performance in Bucharest, on Zone Arena, when some people living near-by, started complaining that the concert is too noisy. It is a rock concert, god dammit, it is supposed to be noisy. But, if the people complain, the organisers have to obey, or that is what the law is saying.
As a result, the organisers of the concert are building a wooden fence, 8 m in height and 100m in length as a sound barrier, so the people living near-by will not complain anymore. Needless to say that even if this wall is being built, you will be able to hear the concert even if you are 5 killometers away from the area where the concert is taking place. But, well, as I said, if the law sais that the wall should be built, the organisers have to comply and build it.

Roxette plays live in Bucharest for the first time, on May 30th. This is part of the worldwide promotional tour for their last album,`Charm School`.

The tickets for the show are available on myticket.ro, or in the Diverta Bookshop Network, at Sala Palatului, in the Mihai Eminescu Bookshop, Musica Store and at The Ark. There are several cathegories, depending on location and price:
Golden VIP (seat included, in front of the stage) - 350 lei( 85 euros)
Tribuna VIP (seat included, in the tribunes) - 250 lei (65 euros)
Gazon A (lawn, standing) 120 lei (30 euros)

Sting and the The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra hit Europe with a Bang


Live Nation has announced that Sting, together with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, is extending the number of areas that his world tour is going to visit. As a result, a number of performances have already taken place in Europe and United Kingdom.

The Symphonicity Tour, that started almost a year ago, on JUne 2nd in Vancouver, included a full series of sold-out concerts in USA along the entire summer. This way, a very large number of people had the opportunity to listen to some of his best hits, sung in a completelly new manner, the symphonic way.

The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra is and has been directed by Steven Mercurio (known for his work with names such as Pavarotti, Bocelli).

The european tour has started last year, on September 3rd, at Konserthus, Oslo, followed by a majestique performance on September 5th at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen. On October 5th, Sting and the Northern Simfonia Orchestra amazed the audience from The Sage Gateshead with an amazing performance.

Live performances have been announced for some of the most prestigious venues in Europe, such as The Royal Albert Hall in London, on October 1st or the Verdi Theatre in Florence, Italy on October 25th, The Arcimboldi Theatre in Milan, on November 2nd and Santa Cecilia in Rome, on November 10th.

The tour has stopped in cities such as Stockholm, Helsinki, Berlin, Koln and Paris, followed by concerts in Dublin, Nantes, Antwerp, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Stuttgart in October, ending with Venice and Turin in November.

After a unmatched carreer, that has produced countless albums rewarded with platinum disks, a impressive collection of songs that reached the first position in the international charts, global sales exceeding 100 million disks, a collection of Stings best songs are being played it a complete new manner, orchestrated by Jorge Calandrelli, David Hartley, Michel Legrand, Rob Mathes, Vince Mendoza, Steven Mercurio, Bill Ross, Robert Sadin and Nicola Tescari.

The special playlist put together especially for this event includes hits such as "Roxanne”, "Next To You,” "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” and "Every Breath You Take,” next to hits from his solo carreer, such as"Englishman in New York,” "Fragile,” "Russians,” "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You,” "Fields of Gold,” or "Desert Rose.”

In order to support the long waited Sting World Tour, Deutsche Gramophon has launched the Symphonicities CD last summer.

The new studio album takes the live experience further, so the first single"Evey Little Thing She Does Is Magic” has already been launched on digital support on May 24, 2010. Also, you can find on this exceptional disk you can find songs from The Police era, such as"Roxanne” and "Next To You”, and also from the Solo period, such as "Englishman in New York,” "I Burn for You,” "Why Should I Cry for You” or "She’s Too Good For Me”. Symphonicities was produced by Rob Mathes and Sting and was mixed by Elliot Scheiner (Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac) and Claudius Mittendorfer (Interpol, Franz Ferdinand).
Sting started being interested in adding the orchestral side to his music, in 2008, after being invited to sing on the same stage with the legendary Chicago Symphony Orchestra. After remixing and arranging songs from his extended repertoir, Sting has met with the Orchestra for a concerts that gave birth to a very unique experience for him, making him eager to explore new potential collaborations with the symphonic music. As a result, the Philadephia Orchestra has invited him to join them in order to celebrate the 153rd Anniversary of the Music Academy.

Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra has worked in the past with some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Andrea Bocelli, Bryn Terfel, Renee Fleming, Kiri Te Kanawa and the regreted Luciano Pavarotti, to Burt Bacharach, George Benson, Michel Legrand, Diana Krall, Tina Turner or Randy Newman. The Orchestra has 45 members and will be following Sting on all his 45 concerts in USA.
Sting will be joined by the qwartet Dominic Miller (Sting`s guitar player), David Cossin (a renowed percutionist specialized in experimental music and member of the Bang on a Can All-Stars), Jo Lawry (vocalist) and Ira Coleman (bass player).

His first adventure with the classical music started with his successful album, "Songs from the Labyrinth" that represented a fold reinterpretation of the XVIth century music, by the composer John Dowland, launched in 2006 by the Deutsche Grammophon. After ending his extraordinary tour along with hie fellow members from Police, Sting has returned to his old dear passion of bringing together some of the most diverse musical genres, in one of his latest albums,"If On A Winter's Night...", album that has taken the international charts by surprise, landing on some of the highest places and also on the Billboard Classic.

The tour has been organized by Live Nation and produced by RZO Entertainment Inc in association with Universal Music Classical Management & Productions and is presented by Xerox.

The new Sting album, SYMPHONICITIES, was launched last summer at Deutsche Grammophon.

New Tickets Cathegory for BON JOVI OPEN AIR, JULY 10th BUCHAREST


It seems that the voice of the poeple has been once again, heard. This time, it seems that some people were annoied when the orgianizers of the BON JOVI concert in Bucharest have decided to introduce a new cathegory of tickets and in the same time, a new zone.

The new zone was called Diamond Circle, and was supposed to occupy all the immediate front area of the stage, so its inhabitants would have the best vision. It was a bit infuriating, since there already a lot of people, and I am talking about the people that have bought all the tickets that were assigned for the Golden Circle, were hopping to get the best seats. And all of a sudden, they didn`t have the best seats.
So they started quarelling on the social sites, and, as a result, the organizers have decided to call it off and forget about the Diamond Ring.

Innitially, the organizers, announced on 18th of May that starting with that day, the people could buy a whole new cathegory of tickets, a far better one, than the ones sold before. Of course, it was all about the Diamond Gircle, a place where 700 very lucky people could be as close to their idols as possible, off course if they could afford to pay the price - 798.8 lei ( approx 200 euros). Pretty big, no?
But I mean, who are we to judge, if you have the money, why wont you go and sit on the stage, if you can. But here were the people that have already bought all the tickets from the Golden Circle area, which was supposed to be the best place, till the Diamond Circle came about. So those people got pissed and started quarellyng.

Finally, the wise decision was taken and the organisers announced that the Diamond Circle tickets would not be sold anymore.

In an official statement, Denisa Sandulescu, spokeswoman for DD EAST ENTERTAINMENT, has declared that the Diamond Circle is something that comes with the Open Air concept, worldwide. That particular area was designated as such by the sponsors of the tour and was supposed to offer a greater confort and a better view for those willing to pay the price. But that decision came too late, unfortunatelly, when the Golden Circle area was already sold-out, and when the people already have paid good money for the best seats in the house. So Denisa Sandulescu has decided to stop the process of selling the tickets for the Diamond Area and to give up this cathegory of tickets for good. Those that already have bought the tickets for this area, will receive a Golden Circle ticket instead, and the rest of the money.

As a plus, the organisers have decided to add the 700 Diamond tickets to the Golden Circle existing ones so they supplimented the Golden Circle tickets. This is a good decision, since there are a lot of fans willing to pay the price and be as close as possible to the New Jersey Cowboys.

If you want your ticket, you still can find tickets in the other cathegories, as follows:
VIP - 479,3 lei(125 euros)
Tribuna - 372,8 lei (85 euros)
Golden Circle - 298,2 lei (70 euros) SOLD OUT
Normal Circle - 186,4 lei (46 euros)
Peluza Parlament - 159,8 lei (38 euros)

The tickets can be bought direct from the Germanos, Orange, Vodafone, Domo Stores and the Humanitas and Carturesti Bookstores from all over Romania. If you are abroad, you can find them online from www.eventim.ro.

The concert is presented in Romania by East European Entertainment and Marcel Avram, in a joint venture with D&D East Entertainment.

The tickets can be bought direct from the Germanos, Orange, Vodafone, Domo Stores and the Humanitas and Carturesti Bookstores from all over Romania. If you are abroad, you can find them online from www.eventim.ro.

The band doesn`t want to come to Romania empty handed and also they want to visit the country a little bit, so they said into a interview on Antena 1, that they started documenting, using father Google as guide in their endeavour to understand as much as possible our country. They said that they were possitive that in all the 27 world wide tours they have visited every country on Earth, but then they have discovered Romania.
So they want to know about Romania, more than the usual Dracula stories. So if you want to see the band playing live in Bucharest, on July 10th go online and grab your ticket and let us meet there, and let us have the time of our lives.

The album was sold in a week in a equal amount to the number of copies being sold from the album Cross Road, launched in 1994, a number reaching over 21 million disks over the entire year. Prior to that, “Lost Highway Tour” has reached the top position in 2008.

Alice Cooper uita de maniere in "No more mister nice guy!" si ne viziteaza la Arene


Jack Daniel’s Studio No. 7 prezinta Alice Cooper, „No More Mister Nice Guy: The Original Evil Returns!”, un turneu de senzatie la Bucuresti! Pe 14 iunie, la Arenele Romane, Alice Cooper isi da din nou intalnire cu fanii heavy-metalului din Romania. Concertul este organizat de Events.

Fara Alice Cooper, probabil n-ar fi existat niciodata KISS, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Motley Crue, Slipknot ori Rob Zombie ... poate nici chiarDavid Bowie, sau cel putin nici Ziggy Stardust. O legenda a hard-rockului, veteranul care a inventat literalmente conceptul “rockul ca si teatru” se intoarce la ce stie sa faca el mai bine cu turneul „No More Mister Nice Guy: The Original Evil Returns”. Inclus in martie in Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, regele heavy-metalului socant a declarat ca a fi alaturi de The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys “este un sentiment incredibil... S-a spus despre trupa Alice Cooper ca a revolutionat experienta rockului live – daca e adevarat si asta ne-a adus acest premiu, singurul lucru de spus ar fi ca "There's no business like show business!". De la primul sau album solo, din 1975, Welcome to My Nightmare, pana la albume precum 1994 “The Last Temptation” si albumul din 2000 “Brital Planet”, albumele-concept au fost specialitatea lui Alice. Ultimul sau album de studio, “Along came a Spider” 2008 , se concentreaza pe istoria unui ucigas in serie - o panza de intrigi, infasurata in jurul unui hard-rock de calibru greu. Co-produs de Alice impreuna cu echipa Dany Saber [Black Grape, Rolling Stones, Ozzy Osbourne, David Bowie] si Greg Hampton [Bootsy Collins, Buckethead], piese precum deschiderea "I Know Where You Live" si "Vengeance Is Mine," evoca imnuri clasice din cariera lui Cooper, precum as "Is it My Body," si "Under My Wheels". Din 12 mai, cei mai infocati fani au la dispozitie doar 4 zile (12 -16.05) pentru a cumpara bilete cu 15% reducere! Cumparatorii pot alege dintre urmatoarele categorii de locuri: Golden Ring – 136 lei, Tribuna (cu loc) – 119 lei sau Regular – 102 lei. Din 17 mai, tichetele vor fi disponibile la pret intreg: Golden Ring – 160 lei, Tribuna (cu loc) – 140 lei sau Regular – 120 lei. Biletele se gasesc in reteauaEventim

Hooverphonic ne provoaca la o plimbare pe campiile Edenului, pe 10 iunie in Fratelli

Vineri, 10 iunie 2011, trioul belgian Hooverphonic va susţine un concert live înFratelli Studios din Bucureşti.

Concertul Hooverphonic din Capitală face parte din turneul de promovarea al ultimului lor album „The Night Before”.

Trupa şi-a extins repede stilul spre punctul în care nu mai poate fi inclusă în nici un gen muzical. De la trip-hop-ul de pe albumul lor de debut, „New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular” (1996) la fusion-ul electro de pe „Blue Wonder Power Milk” (1998), sau la aranjamentele acustice de pe „The Magnificent Tree”(2000), sound-ul trupei este într-o continuă evoluţie.

Hituri precum “Eden”, “Mad About You”, “2 Wicky”, “Vinegar and Salt” sau coverul după “Skake The Disease” al celor de la Depeche Mode au rulat intens la posturile de radio şi televiziunile muzicale româneşti.

Single-ul „The Night Before”, lansat la sfârşitul anului trecut, în octombrie 2010, a constituit primul pas al trupei alături de solista actuală, Noémie Wolfs. Albumul cu acelaşi nume a fost lansat în noiembrie 2010 şi a câştigăt discul de platină în Belgia la scurt timp dupa lansare.

Bilete Hooverphonic

Biletele pentru concertul Hooverphonic sunt disponibile în reţeaua Eventim şi online pe www.eventim.ro.

New big names come to complete de line-up for B’ESTFEST 2011

If names such as Pendulum and Skunk Anansie came as a sunny day in the winter time, B’ESTFEST 2011 promisses even more fun when it comes to pleasing out thirst for good music.

And so the surprise doesn`t stop here. Four other names come to add more flavour to the already enough presence of Pendulum live performance in the line-up. This time we will travel from Lamb, the Manchester trip-hoppers, to the legendary House of Pain, to the british ravers from Hadouken, to the extraordinary mix of dub, rapcore, dancehall and hard ragga-jungle that is Asian Dub Foundation.

So from the point of view of the line-up, untill now, we can rest assured that our musical tastes are soon to be pleased for good.

But B’ESTFEST 2011 is not only about music. B’ESTFEST 2011 brings something new to the Bucharest scene. If we take into consideration that in 2007 the Festival meant two stages one next to the other in a parking-lot...we will have to say that this years concept changes radically our idea of in-city festival.

B’ESTFEST 2011 moves outside the city, in a an open space that is only 10 minutes away by car, from where it used to be until now. Moving the festival outside the city, brings more space and with this come more stages, a new camping site, and also more room for the crowds that will gather in the 3 days of the festival. This is how a Bucharest Festival brings a true alternative to the already legendary outdoor festivals such as Peninsula (TG Mures), Pepsi Sziget (Budapest) or Bugras Fest (Bulgaria).

The tickets are already being sold. There is also a discount period, an early bird perios as it is called. This period expires on March 22nd, 2011 so if you want to get your pass with a 20% discount, you better access this page for details (http://www.bestfest.ro/editia2011/en/bilete).

See you there!

Pendulum promisses to wake up the dead at B’ESTFEST 2011

After almost two years of waiting and promisses, Pendulum joins us in full formation this summer, at B’ESTFEST 2011, on 3rd of July.

It is not the first time Pendulum comes to Romania. It first happened on November 7th, 2009, when Ben The Verse took the audience to shere dementia and the echoes of that party are still heard.

Mc Verse is waited to arrive in Bucharest on May 16th, this year, but let`s ne frank here:How much fun can you get in a DJ SET? So MC Verse kept his promise, and we will have the entire band playing Live at the biggest music festival ever organized in Bucharest, Romania:
B’ESTFEST

It all has started in 2007, when the E`Magic Crew brought to life the first edition of the Festival. It was named B’ESTIVAL back then and the line-up included over 30 artists, being headlined by Morcheeba, Faithless, Kasabian, Pink, Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, Wu-Tang Clan.
The festival reached a record audience for Romania with 50.000 people attending the event, during the three days.

The 2008 edition brought an extra stage, an extra day (AFTERSHOCK), more bands in the line-up (36 in total), and an impressive spectrum of headliners: Alanis Morissette, Cypress Hill, UNKLE, Kaiser Chiefs, Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics, Nelly Furtado, Manu Chao,
Roisin Murphy, Judas Priest. B’ESTFEST’s 2009 included DAY ZERO as a bonus for all the festival’s fans. This extra special day kicked off with an amazing show from the world’s biggest band, The Killers and continued with Patrice, White Lies and many other gigs. Unforgettable performances followed over the four days with performances from Santana, Orbital, Moby, Motorhead, Franz Ferdinand, Gabriella Cilmi, The Charlatans, Manowar and many others!

Being recognized as one of Europe’s best music festivals was just the beginning of a worldwide success. After its first edition, B’ESTFEST became a member of Yourope, the European festival industry association and ETEP (European Talent Exchange Program), a showcase organization that promotes new European artists within top international festivals.

After winning a place in the finals of the UK’s event industry Oscars - the UK Festival Awards, BESTFEST 2009 also gained a nomination, for the ''Best Medium Festival'' category at the
prestigious European Festival Awards. And that’s not all folks, the best is yet to come! We have fantastic news: in 2011, B’ESTFEST goes green!!!

So this year, your festival is back and will take place in the wonderful green fields in the north of Bucharest, 10 min from the airport. B’ESTFEST CAMP will be this year’s pinnacle of excellent music, funky atmosphere -an oasis of joyous celebration and fun! Some other big names that
have already confirmed their participation to the Festival, are Skunk Anansie and Asian Dub Foundation.

The idea of moving the festival outside the city, in an open space, with a propper camping place makes this years edition of the Festival an interesting choice for spending your summer days.
