    Before he releases his hair and is baptized with James Leg, he is John Myers – son of a preacher growing up between the sands of Tennessee and Texas with gospel background music.
  • What we didn't know about... Hildur Guðnadóttir

    text Kristina Yordanova

    We are sure that the Icelandic composer laughs at good jokes and loves life, but when she has to make music without a smiley face, she delves into the darker corners of her mind. This is how she gives birth to the ominous chaos in the Danish movie Kidnapping, the darkness in Sicario 2: Soldado and the horror in the series Chernobyl and most recently her cello partnered with Arthur Fleck in The Joker . These consecutive masterpieces make us find her on Spotify and pop her right into our list (to well-selected Chopin nocturnes and Russian rap).

    Geike Arnaert's breathless curves in Mad About You probably are the first you think of when you hear Hooverphonic. And you are not alone - the decade with this singer is the most strong for the Belgian trip-hop group, driven by the bassist Alex Callier's and guitarist Raymond Geerts, which since their start in 1995 have changed altogether five frontladies. The sweet melancholy of 18-year-old Luka Cruysberghs is the latest ingredient in their music that we absorb here with the latest album Looking For Stars on the show on October 11, that most certainly will also spin old hits.

    The location of this party is still a mystery, but the line-up tells it everything important. It is headed by Jeroen Search, who discovers techno landscapes from the mid-90s and is noted for being the inspiration behind many names behind the panels. Next in line is Jay Clarkre with his beats.
  • 50 years of Woodstock

    It's mid-August when, in 1969, 70 miles away from the town of Woodstock, New York, free love, cheap drugs and bubbling rock'n'roll were the solutions to all the problems for a weekend. In the background there is the Vietnam War, the Charles Manson cult and the civil rights movement, while four men under the age of 27 seal the dates from the 15th to 18th with the sign of peace. Happy 50 years of Woodstock to all who will remember.

    They are neither brothers nor chemists - big beat pioneers Ed Simmons and Tom Rolands are historians by education, but they write their own history. Since making their Exit Planet Dust debut in 1995, the two from Manchester have not stopped putting electronic creativity in our ears, and their song Galvanize has been spinning in all NBA games. After 2 months they come here with a stunning 3D light show and effects in 7 trucks to burst with their latest album No Geography, but vacancies in Arena Armeec are melting like 3422 ° C metal, so we are already rushing to October 10 with 4 of their pieces.

    They call him a Renaissance personality, and we agree with the definition. The Iron Maiden frontman is about to turn 61, but finds magical powers for world tours with the band and for piloting a passenger plane, writing books, fencing, and lately - spoken word performances. The latter is exactly why he arrives in Sofia on December 23rd.

    When we say her name, we expect to call out for a woman with a burning cigarette in her mouth and two middle fingers up in the air. Punk's blues force starts from an Indian family in New Jersey and reaches the streets of New York, which crossed with the band Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers for two albums.

    They are one of the most bold and stylish amorphous groups on the planet and on June 30 they come for their first concert here. The criminally low interest in it (almost all European dates from their tour are "sold out") gives you a chance to take a ticket for the Ancient Theater in Plovdiv at the very last minute.

    At the age of 83, the reggae guru leaps to the world scenes with an eccentric beard, biting a cigarette between his teeth. Known as one of the key figures of the Jamaican style he had worked with Bob Marley, Paul McCartney and Keith Richards. NowLee Scratch Perry is circulating between Jamaica and Switzerland and he's not tired, he is coming in the laste afternoon with another force of the dub scene Mad Professor to make us move to his new groovy beats.
