Station Narva Festival 2018: Echo & The Bunnymen (UK), Actress (UK) jt

Fr 21/09/2018 17:00 - Su 23/09/2018 23:00
Narva

The first edition of the music and city culture festival Station Narva in the easternmost Estonian city Narva to host Echo & the Bunnymen and Actress as headliners


The first edition of the music and city culture festival Station Narva will take place in the easternmost Estonian city Narva. The live music hotspots of the festival will be the Kreenholm Manufacturing Company and the cultural hacktivists’ headquarters Art Club Ro-Ro.


The headliners of the festival are the grandmasters of nocturnal pop Echo & the Bunnymen and the cerebral electronic music producer Actress, both from the UK. Echo & the Bunnymen’s  dark, swirling fusion of gloom and theatrical psychedelia is bound to bring out the poetry of Kreenholm’s rough steampunk milieu. Actress, the creator of cerebral abstract techno and R&B concrète, will fill the industrial era colossus with post-industrial power of future, crafting chopped sample loops into rumbling tracks soaked in static.

Kreenholm will also embrace the gender-and-genus-bending industrial pop by Gazelle Twin, and the unflinchingly honest Swedish singer-songwriter Jenny Wilson.” St Petersburg’s Shortparis will offer the audience a thrilling ride on the dark side with their spastic dance grooves whilst Moscow’s RSAC (Red Samara Automobile Club) will play their irresistible hoodlum-hymns. The Finnish shoegazers Joensuu 1685 are readying for their global comeback; also from Finland comes the grime and dubstep mixing hip-hop star View.
Estonia’s own music scene will be represented by around a dozen cutting-edge acts. The ‘true child of post-genre’ Mart Avi will present his upcoming solo album “OtherWorld.” The Lovecraftian milieu will provide a perfect setting for the hip-hop shamanism of 12EEK Monkey. The dance version of Estonian indie founders Röövel Ööbik, Una Bomba 50+, will vent their hooligan house steam, whilst the noise-rock stalwarts Zahir guarantee to fly everyone to the other side of rock ’n’ roll. Sõpruse Puiestee will deliver melancholy vintage melodies. More about the lineup: https://stationnarva.ee/#artists

Besides the main musical frenzy, Narva will come alive various interactions – from art activities in Narva Art Residency to the public talks by BAZAR opinion festival. Trilingual stand-up performance will take place in cooperation with Comedy Estonia, and the European Commission Representation in Estonia will arrange fun Speak Dating sessions. Joining forces with Narva’s Lamprey Festival, Station Narva will bring Nordic street food to Narva River Promenade. At the promenade, Tarmo Tammiste, Mayor of Narva City, will receive the annual title of the autumn cultural capital of Estonia at September 23 midday, followed by a public get-together meal at the long table.

Station Narva’s info desk along with DIGIX Games Café will be open in the main atrium of Narva College of the University of Tartu from 20th to 23rd September. The full programme of Station Narva 2018 and new performers will be announced during July and August.
Station Narva is organised by Shiftworks OÜ (previously Musiccase) in cooperation with representatives from Narva: Narva Gate Ltd, Art Club Ro-Ro, Narva College of the University of Tartu, Narva Art Residency, festival BAZAR, Lamperey Festival, and NGO Uus Sild.
