Adebisi Shank cancelled!!!

Hello everyone, it's with great regret that we have to announce that Adebisi Shank cancelled their performance at the Out Of The Crowd Festival as there drummer Mick just broke one of his finger.

Here's their official statement :

"agfgdgfrftyghyuuyuytfThis SUCKS. Mick has broken his finger so we can't do the Out Of The Crowd Festival this weekend. Sorry guys. We were really looking forward to playing, and seeing our buddies in Luxembourg again."

We'll try to find a band to replace them on the bill.

Sorry once again for that.

Exhibition - from 31 March to 7 April 2012

Out of the Crowd 2012's exhibition is inviting the french graphic designer collective L'Atelier du Bourg and their exhibition projet "Homer's Odyssey in 48 prints". The exhibition, bringing together artists from all over France and Belgium, tries to recount the epic tale of Ulysses through a series of contemporary prints, made by lino-, woodcut and silkscreen print. Based on a text considered complex and old-fashioned, the exhibition offers a modern vision of Homer's work, but also of traditional printing techniques. An unconventional journey questioning the notions of transmission and interpretation.

From 31 march to 7 april, open from tuesday to saturday 14h-19h, free entrance !

Participants :
Collectives: Pan ! (Nantes) / Arrache-toi un oeil (Paris) / Cagibi (Lille) / Amour et Linge Sale (Montaigu) / Force Béton (Bruxelles) / Presse Purée (Rennes)
Artists : Alice Bertrand / Claire Chaboud / François Collette / Loïc Creff / Alexandre de Moté / Sylvain Descazot / Julien Duporté / Théodore Duporté / Stéphane Girod / Sophie Glade / Benjamin Grafmeier / Raphaël Gromy / Éléonore Hérissé / Audrey Jamme / Fred Langout / Catherine Le Carrer / Alexandre Leguedey / Cédric Lestiennes / François Marcziniak / Mioshe / Emmanuel Pamphile / Myriam Pennetier / Estelle Ribeyre / Kim Gerard Roselier / Ryngar / Lucia Salzgeber / Olivia Sautreuil / Michel Schmitt / Maxime Sudol / Dorian Taburet / Nicolas Thiebault / Gwen Tomahawk / Klaus Walbrou

The Redneck Manifesto (EIR)

They're be the last confirmed and we're super proud to welcome the mighty Redneck Manifesto for this exclusive performance at the Out Of The Crowd festival!

Their brand of Math-Rock/Post-Rock makes them one of the pioneer bands of this genre! Their live shows are probably their best weapon playing with passion and with their hearts out!

It's definitely not to miss then as it will be their only show in Europe!

Third and last local act confirmed!

The last local act to be confirmed for this 09th edition of the Out Of The Crowd festival is the practically newcomer's band : Mount Stealth.

After having played in bands such as Mutiny On The Bounty, Miaow Miaow, Actarus, Lafa Connected, Metro and so much more, this lot has decided to create a new entity where experimental, math-rock and post-rock never worked that much together.

This will be their second gig ever (after their first one last July as a warm-up) so don't dare miss that!

First Hip-Hop act ever at OOTC festival

Yes, you've correctly read it.

It will be the first time that we'll ever welcome a hip-hop act at the festival.

But we're talking about a very special band called Le Klub Des Loosers, with their funky beats and their jazzy atmospheres, they create some kind of (hipster-hop) with vitriolic lyrics! I fyou're not familiar with their univers, check them out, they're truely an amazing band!

A special treat from Ireland !

Hey boys and Girls,

we've got a special treat from Ireland that we always wanted to have at our festival and it will be nontheless than the amazing, what do I say Incredible, Fabulous or any superlative : Adebisi Shank!

These three lads are probably one of the most electrifying band in experimantal rock at the moment with energetic live shows and an innovative brand of music!

Aucan, well they actually can! Having played pretty much everywhere in Europe.

They'll be playing the Out Of The Crowd Festival and give people what they know what to do best :
A good dose of live instrumental dubstep with a pinch of angular and atmospherical rock!

Lets get Ready to Rumble...In Rhodos!

We're proud to announce that the festival will welcome the Norwegian Post-Hardcore heroes :

Rumble In Rhodos!

They're probably one of the hardest working band from the last years and just have put out a brillinat record called : "Signs Of Fervent Devotion"

Enjoy !

Second local act confirmed : Cyclorama

Hey everyone,

Cyclorama has been one of the hottest band around Luxembourg over the last months with the release of a first EP as a band and outstanding live shows around the country. They will surely be a band to watch at the Out Of The Crowd!

Second confirmed act : Sun Glitters !

Born from the ashes of his ancient project : Sug(r)cane. Victor Ferreira came back with his new project Sun Glitters with a sound so in today's mood that he had reviews in reknowned blogs such as Pitchfork.

Expect some quality Shoegaze/Post-Dubstep from this amazing artist from Luxembourg!
