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:
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.
