After playing Sziget 2009, it seems that 08001 will be at Sziget this year, too. This wonderful news is confirmed on the 08001 official website (thanks, Fantomas). In case you don't know who 08001 are, we'll just tell you that they are quite a very interesting project, combining the inspiration of a line-up of artists from all around the world, that meet in Barcelona to create their music. 08001 live shows mix the performances of a large number of artists with a visual screen show. 08001 are set to play Sziget Festival 2010 on August 15.
Still no big names, even though it's March already. We're expecting them in the following weeks, though. Even if they're not a big name 08001 are quite an interesting project. First, because they make a very special kind of music, combining the inspiration of a line-up of artists from all around the world, that meet in Barcelona to create their music. And second, because their live shows mix the performances of a large number of artists with a visual screen show. They are to play Sziget Festival 2009 on August 13.
