At Bažant Pohoda Deň_FM, we announced other 28 performers. The most significant change regards electronic music. For serious reasons, Kaytranada cancelled his summer performances. However, we were able to find an equally enjoyable compensation, as the most successful Scottish producer of the last decade, Hudson Mohawke, will perform in Space Arena SLSP. He has cooperated with the stars such as Kanye West, Chris Brown, and Azealia Bank. With the Canadian producer Lunice, they form the duo TNGHT. When Hudson Mohawke was only 15, he became the finalist of the British DMC Mixing Championships. Now he is 29 and has released two albums: Butter and Lantnern. Guardian called him one of the biggest producers and the guy that changes the shape of pop music.
Among other interesting confirmed names, we confirmed the band Le Payaco, a concert of Sendreiovci with orchestra, the ensemble Čercheňora, the electroswing duo Malalata, the project Komara, Transmusic Comp., and the Swingless Jazz Ensemble. We also announced the performers at Radio(active zone) _FM and the artists who will reign on our new club Visegrad stage (see the complete list at end of the press release).
The programme schedule of the 19th year of the Bažant Pohoda festival is gradually setting down
Thursdayʼs warm up will begin on Red Bull Tour Bus and the performances will alternate with the “birthday party” on the main stage. Here, Para will start the celebration of their twenty years on the stage, and after them, the “thirty-year-olds” of Bez ladu a skladu will perform. The highlight of the evening will be the two-hour concert of Manu Chao La Ventura.
On Friday, Eagles of Death Metal, FFS (Franz Ferdinand & Sparks), and Die Antwoord will give concerts on the Bažant Stage. The second largest stage will offer Tiken Jah Fakoly and the industrial legend of Einstürzende Neubauten. You will be able to enjoy a great entertainment and perhaps the best dance floor in Central Europe in the SLSP Space Arena on the same day. The artists to perform here are Beardyman, Mohawkke Hudson, A-Trak, and RL Grime.
Saturday will offer a little trip around the world on the main stage—the musicians to give concerts here are the Israeli band Lola Marsh, the Syrian artist Omar Souleyman, and Malian Les Ambassadeurs (in this set, you will be able to see the stars of world music such as Amadou & Mariam, and Salif Keita). At about eight oʼclock in the evening, perhaps the most awaited event of not only this year will begin—Björkʼs concert. Besides the excellent music and a larger string section, her concert will also offer day-time fireworks. The Orange stage will be dominated by softer music and strong melodies by of Montreal, Korben Dallas Symphony, and CocoRosie.
There is news in visual art, too. Yesterday we announced the results of the Public Art Festival Contest. The winning designs (see the attachment) will beautify the area of the festival. There will also be a creative zone, an exhibition of photographs, sculptures, and other expositions. Thanks to the cooperation with White Night, the visitors of Bažant Pohoda will be able to view some of the works of the festival of visual arts, too.
