2 WEEKS TO SPIRIT OF BURGAS BEACH FESTIVAL in Bulgaria
Taking place from 14-16 August and located on the picture-perfect
white sands of the city's central beach, SPIRIT of Burgas was named
one of the Top 20 European Music Festivals for 2009 in The Times and
was previously nominated Best European Festival at the Virtual
Festival Awards. Acts confirmed so far include; Faith No More, Fun
Lovin' Criminals, Crystal Method, Dreadzone, Clawfinger, Gravity Co,
LTJ Bukem feat. MC Conrad, Sub Focus, Speedy J, Alexander Kowalski,
and nights from many respected labels and promoters including HMSU,
Metropolis, Renesanz, Remote Area, Rush Hour, and Welcome To The
Future plus some other very special guests to be announced soon.
Launched in 2008, SPIRIT of Burgas is set to be even bigger and
better than ever, with over 100 acts across seven stages, showcasing
a diverse range of artists and performances across all genres of
music. And what better location to experience it than Burgas city
beach, with stunning views of the Black Sea coastline, stretching
over 20km. It's no wonder that MTV chose to film from the festival
and made a special program featuring live performances and exclusive
behind the scenes coverage that was broadcast across the MTV European
Network in 16 countries.
This years festival also marks the arrival of the Go Dutch Stage,
which will be dedicated to the Dutch electronic music scene. As a
special treat for electronic music lovers, promoters and labels
Remote Area, Rush Hour and Welcome To The Future will be bringing
their unique blend of minimal, techno and house to this all-new area
from midnight through to the early hours. Expect stellar performances
from DJs and producers including Makcim, Lauhaus, Boris Werner,
Julien Chaptal, Antal, Cinnaman and Quazar.
The City's desire to embrace contemporary culture and the arts makes
Burgas the perfect location as the home of SPIRIT of Burgas Music
Festival. Located on the stunning Black Sea coast of Bulgaria,
Burgas is the country's fourth largest city being home to 250,000
residents. In the summer months the city swells to around 500,000 as
the unique combination of sea, sun and nature make Burgas a favourite
destination for holiday makers. This year's edition of the SPIRIT of
Burgas also includes a new camping zone alongside the Black Sea next
to the festival site. So now it's even easier to experience the
SPIRIT of Burgas!
