YouTube (part two)

Et lille indblik i det mest spektakulære øjeblikke på Popfesten:

Roadside Poppies lydprøve på deres helt specielle version af Pocketbooks - Cross The Line med Pocketbooks egen trommeslager som på mirakuløs vis var dukket op:


Søndag aften, lige inden det var tid til a forlade Råhuset inviterede Cats On Fire deres svenske venner Johan Hedberg og to af Tellus About The Moon på scenen til en cover version af Genesarets Sjö af Kjell Höglund:

Volcano-action.

Som i jo nok har regnet ud er vi, ligesom de fleste, ramt af en del aflysninger, grundet aske fra Eyjafjallajökul. Læs mere her. En omstændighed vi desværre intet kan gøre ved.

De bands der er påvirket af dette, er:
Gregory Webster Trio (aflyst)
Pocketbooks (aflyst)
Horowitz (aflyst)
Rose Elinor Dougall (aflyst)



Men frygt ikke! De andre bands er ankommet/på vej med anden transport. Så vi skal nok få en fucking fab Popfest med:

Death Valley Sleepers, Roadside Poppies (UK), Tellus About The Moon (S), Johan Hedberg (S), Iiris Viljanen (F), Labrador (solo), Compute (SE), NoMoreHeroes, Liechtenstein (S), Cats On Fire (F), Ampel, Northern Portrait, Leaving Mornington Crescent (S), The Electric Popgroup (S), The Boombox Hearts.

Vi er i øjeblikket ved at arbejde på rokere lidt rundt i programmet. Vi lover ikke at flytte for meget rundt på dagene som bandsene spiller, for ikke at rode for meget i folks planer, men der vil højst sansynligt blive pillet lidt ved spilletiderne. Vi lover at holde jer opdateret!

Popfest program.

Vi har lavet en fin lille folder, med al den info du har brug for, om Popfesten - som vi kommer til at dele ud ved indgangen.
Den er på engelsk, og nok mest aktuel for vores udenlandske gæster, men hvis du har ligeså svært ved at vente som vi har, kan du KLIKKE HER for at downloade den officielle Popfest Program-folder som PDF. Klar til at printe ud og tage med (2 sidet-print, samme format som en pizzamenu).

Single day tickets.

Efter stor efterspørgsel på en-dages billetter, har vi valgt at tilbyde en-dages billetter i døren - Men kun så længe lager haves, så kom i god tid hvis du vil være sikker på at komme ind!

A quick word from: Pocketbooks


Vi får aldrig nok af Pocketbooks! Deres seneste album Flight Paths er et mesterværk indenfor sin genre og den yndige forsangerinde Emma har også skrevet i venindebogen:


Tell us a little bit about your hometown:
Although we're based in London, only Andy is actually from here. The rest of us moved here from various towns in the North but we think of London as our home town now. We all love it because it has so much going on, sometimes too many options! I don't know many people native to London, but everyone I speak to seems to have come for the same reasons - to see more gigs and have a better chance of getting involved in things, which is really easy here.


Which bands are you most looking forward to seeing at the CPH Popfest?
We're big fans of Cats on Fire, Northern Portrait and Liechtenstein, but I think we're really looking forward to seeing bands we haven't heard yet, and getting in a bit of dancing afterwards! Also it will just be really nice to catch up with friends we haven't seen for a while.


Top 3 things to do while in Copenhagen:
Last time I was in Copenhagen I wanted to visit Tivoli Gardens but it was closed, so that's one thing I'll definitely be doing this time! I'd also like to take a boat trip and see the city from a different angle, and of course spending as much time as possible at Popfest!

DIY-compilation.

Hvis du skulle være interesseret i at høre nogle af artisterne fra årets Popfest, inden det går løs på fredag, så er der mulighed for at downloade gratis numre fra den fabelagtige indie-blog Hits In The Car.
På den måde kan du jo lave din helt egen Popfest-compilation så du kan stå og synge med og virke helt enormt tjekket hele næste weekend.

Vi ses!

A quick word from: Liechtenstein

Vores yndlings pigeband, Liechtenstein kommer fra den smukke svenske by Göteborg, og har sagt ja til at være de første til at skrive i vores venindebog:

Tell us a little bit about your hometown:

Gothenburg is very cold, grey and windy most of the year, and if you like rain it's the place to be...

Which bands are you looking most forward to seeing at the CPH Popfest?
Northern Portrait, Leaving Mornington Crescent, Horowitz and The Electric Pop Group.

Top 3 things to do while i Copenhagen:
1) Visit Copenhagen Popfest, obviously, and 2) drink beer, and 3) dance to the dj's indiepop tunes!
