The first edition of SpaceFest! will be held in Gdansk on 9-10 December.
SpaceFest! in 2011 will comprise of workshops for professional musicians ran by Ray Dickaty (ex-Spiritualized) and Karol Schwarz (KSAS, Prawatt), concerts, meetings with artists and a competition for young bands.
Over 10 shoegaze, space-rock and alternative bands will play gigs on 9-10 December, among them White Noise Sound (UK), Ścianka (PL), Jaime Harding (UK) and Simon Scott (UK). The performance by Pure Phase Ensemble – the collective of 15 musicians playing songs composed during the workshop will be a high point of the festival.
If you have a band and play space-rock or shoegaze and you’d like to perform at our festival, you must certainly take part in this competition. All you need to do is send us 30 minutes of your music on a CD - it can be a demo, live recording, material from your rehearsal or an album if you’ve already released one. Deadline for submitting you entries: 30th October. More details in the regulations:
