On Saturday, October 8th, 2011, THE BUG performed, on the T-Mobile Stage, during the Avant Art final. The show by Kevin Martin feat. Flowdan and Daddy Freddy has gathered throngs of people, and confirmed the pertinence of choosing the Pasaż Pokoyhof – a new space of Wroclawian meetings, in the heart of the city. After THE BUG, three amazing performances, by the laureates of the T-Mobile Music and Avant Art contest “Make it louder during the Avant Art Festival” [Zrób głośniej na Avant Art Festival], took place. We saw Audiomanufacture and GAZMO Project, soon followed by Q600.
We’d like to thank the winners greatly, for their enthusiasm, freshness and commitment. We are also very glad that, in cooperation with T-Mobile Music, we can support such talented and courageous creators from the Polish music scene. We will have a close look at their future endeavours and support them on the road to success.
We’d like to thank all the attendees of the 4th edition of the Avant Art Festival: the wonderful and demanding audience, unique artists, our patrons, partners, media patrons, volunteers and all the individuals committed to the organization of the festival. We’d also like to invite you to next years edition – in 2012 AAF will take place under the banner Poland/Germany.
Feel free to take a look at the Swiss edition’s gallery.

After the exploratory, and rich in unique artistic events, weekend with the Swiss art, it is time for avant-garde in a international dimension. 2g, a unit well-known after the previous edition, will perform today (07.10.2011), followed by Vienna Sounds – and evening with sounds straight from Austria. Broken Heart Collector will present some fascinating and eclectic music – elegant, sophisticated and well thought over, captivatingly emotional, but in at the same time – harsh, industrial, brutal and full of cynicism. These are chanson style songs, however, performed in a experimental and noise-rock way. A DJ duo, Cid Rim & The Clonious, together with a energetic dose of hop-hop, funk and offbeat, will appear as a part of the Vienna Sounds.
On the final day, Saturday, October 8th, we’d like to invite all the fans of dubtronics, to a fete with Kevin Martin.
See you there!
