It’s confirmed and official!

We’ll have a chance to listen again to Mark Gardener (RIDE), Ray Dickaty (ex-Spiritualized), Jacek Rezner (Wilga), Kamil Hordyniec (Wilga), Michał Pydo (Hatifnats), Michał ‘Kostek’ Stolc (Cisza nocna) and Karol Schwarz (KSAS) play the material released in 2015 on the seminal album “Live at SpaceFest!” w 2015.
It’s our pleasure to share with the whole wide world the FULL CONCERT of Pure Phase Ensemble 4 feat. Mark Gardener recorded at SpaceFest! in Gdansk in 2014. Last year we released the live album but this material is just so damn good that we’ve decided to publish a video version as well.
The band will meet again to play a concert this year. We can’t tell you when and where just yet, but we can already share the news. More details soon to come. Meanwhile here’s the FULL CONCERT from 2014 for you to enjoy!

Here’s another confirmed band in SpaceFest! line-up: TAU – a collaborative project spearheaded by Shaun Nunutzi, a member of the fearsome Dead Skeletons. Inspiration for the music was manifested in the desert lands of the Real de Catorce, north-west Mexico. This project is a collage of ideas and trance-induced soundscapes and comes from a lineage of those who are influenced by the psychedelic/psycho-active experience. Themes include animal totems and reimagined indigenous medicine songs aimed at transcending the mind and liberating the spirit.
Ok, holiday’s over – let’s reveal our SpaceFest! 2015 line-up! The first band is Kairon; IRSE! – a fiery mixture of prog rock, shoegaze and krautrock straight from Finland!
