PENINSULA PROPAGANDA - 11 DAYS TILL THE 8TH EDITION
If you'll open the official festival page you can read what these guys have in store for the Romanian audience this year, but Peninsula is more than just facts. It's true, they're gonna have over 70 artists performing in 4 days! this way covering a variety of genres, so no one gets to complain. Besides the big bands that are attending, the charm of this particular festival is that you're making new musical discoveries every day, finding gorgeous bands that you've never heard of before.
Peninsula promises to be a true festival experience for its visitors with shows held in 4 musical locations, film projections from Transylvania International Film Festival, a variety of sports competitions & extreme sports.
What I consider to be the peak of the whole 4 days, is being able to witness a DUB FX street performance in the center of Targu Mures. Besides that, Dub Fx, Flower Fairy and Mr Woodnote will have a live show in the festival camp on August 29th at Kiss Terrace.
The line-up gathers big names like Korn, Gorillaz Sound System, The Rasmus, Nero, Parov Stelar Band, Noisia, Babylon Circus, Above and Beyond, Sub Focus, Tricky, N.O.H.A, Theraphy and Europe, chilling the thirst for dance and music.
Romanian music was not left aside, therefore legendary rock band Phoenix, psychedelic band Tunderground, the funk-jazzy band Blazzaj, the electro crowd-rocking Suie Paparude, Kumm with their soon legendary sax player Iordache, Butterflies in my stomach and Gojira will hit the public with a mixture of sounds and rhythms.
Check the rest of the bands and Dj's on their website and get yourself surprised.
Also, count on safety and good behavior during your stay, Peninsula got a name of being a well-bred festival.
Yes, start counting days till the beginning of what is known to be the biggest musical happening in Romania.
And get some sleep before! Watch here and see my point!
