More music, more loudness, more people, more fun – this is exactly what is going to happen from July 25 till 27 at festival KLANG! 2014 which is going to take place in Klangu hill, Kekava parish, Latvia.
Comparing with 2013, this year there will be guests from Estonia, Poland and Russia along with Latvian doom metal experts Frailty (https://www.facebook.com/FrailtyMetalOfficial), heavy rock`n`roll veterans Rūsa (http://www.draugiem.lv/rusa/) and turbo rock pioneers Oranžās brīvdienas (https://www.facebook.com/oranzasbrivdienas). Organizers announce the first international act – the upcoming Russian experimental black-death metal band Arcanorum Astrum (https://www.facebook.com/ArcanorumAstrum). More band announcements coming soon!
Festival was founded in 2013 by two music fanatics – Edijs Rudzis (boss at Rock Distribution / www.rock-distribution.com) and Edgars Rakovskis (musician, manager at Relicseed / www.relicseed.com). “We were having a glass of whisky and discussing Latvian alternative music scene activities and one of us went like “where are you going to play this year?” When we discovered that none of us was able to answer this question it was agreed – we need to create the place, event to play at!” Edgars reveals the idea of creating the festival. “We hope this will grow as a tradition and become one of the central rock and metal activities of the year.”
KLANG! has its own self titled radio show provided by Latvian showman`s Ufo (Kaspars Upacieris) founded radio station BOOM FM. “We created not only a show (can be heard each Thursday via www.boomfm.lv), but also a rock/metal playlist “Radio KLANG!” in order to keep Latvian rock and metal music alive at least on one Latvian radio station. You can also hear the coolest and our most beloved foreign bands there as well” explains Edijs. Hear the music here: http://www.boomfm.lv/kasetes/klang/
