SpaceFest! is a festival of shoegaze, space-rock and alternative music. It consists of concerts, workshops for musicians from Poland and abroad, meetings with legendary artists, a competition for young bands and live album releases.The fourth edition of the festival will be held on 5-6 Dec 2014 in Gdansk!
SpaceFest! is organized by Nasiono Association in cooperation with Laznia Centre for Contemporary Arts, Club Zak and with the support of the City of Gdansk.
The winners of the competition for young bands and those that are not so very young at all but wanted to join our line-up are:
The Enters - a shoegaze/pop noise outfit from London (originally from Orneta). Their debut Small Town Love 12” vinyl EP was released in August this year. The album received wide positive response, being described as ”an impressive collection of dense noise pop” or ”awesome slab of 90′s excellence”. The follow-up EP is expected in 2015.
3moonboys - The band, who have already made a name for themselves on the Polish alternative underground scene, keeps surprising the listeners and refuses to be pigeonholed. Their records are thought-out from the very first chords to the unusual cover. We think it’s a great band that should be promoted worldwide.
We also added to the bill Przed Państwem Rara - the solo project of Rafał Skonieczny who suspended his band Hotel Kosmos and decided to embark on lone voyages through acoustic spaces.
