Four amazing days of music include among others performances by José González (SE), Howe Gelb and A Band Of Gypsies (US/ES), Emiliana Torrini (IS), David Pajo (Slint / Aerial M / Papa M ‐ US), Jason Lytle (Grandaddy ‐ US), The Sadies (CA), Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate / The Baseball Project ‐ US), John Parish (UK), Giant Giant Sand (US), Miraculous Mule featuring Michael J. Sheehy (UK), Robyn Hitchcock (UK), Sarah Blasko (AU) and Lambchop (US).
In 2010 and 2011, the festival hired PASS PASS to take charge of the communication for the event, its promotion and public relations as well as the artistic and technical production. For the upcoming festival, PASS PASS will also be in charge of the administration of the event.
