Outernational Days, the first edition of the world music festival, will take place between July 1st and July 3rd at Uranus Garden and Control Club in Bucharest.
The public will get to listen to musicians from Congo, Burkina Faso, Turkey, Egipt, SUA and Romania, but also attend music-themed conferences, performances, view documentary films and many more.
Among the artists performing at the festival are Booty Carrell (pictured), Andy Votel, Rabih Beaini, Hisham Mayet or The Attic Soundsystem (Scoro). The full line-up and the program of the event can be checked here.
On July 2nd, French director Vincent Moon will talk to Lebanese DJ and producer Rabih Beaini about various creative modes in the digital era and about hybrid artistic forms, in a discussion moderated by Aaron Gonsher, editor of Red Bull Music Academy. The discussion will be followed by a performance delivered by Vincent and Rabih.
The aim of the event is to give a more specific definition to the generic ‘world music’ term and highlight the authentic, original and specific aspects of today’s music. Outernational is a relatively new music term referring to contemporary music genres that are specific to subcultures or peripheries in the cultural spaces that do not directly identify with western norms. Music covered by this term can be found all over East Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe, including Romania.
Tickets, priced RON 20 to RON 70 for a day pass, can be purchased at eventbook.ro.
