|Another year another swell line up…
Yes, once more we are ready to host the best day of the summer during Malmöfestivalen. We and our sugar daddy Nicklas Johansson have compiled a sweet list of great bands from Crunchy Frog, Denmark and Sweden for you to enjoy absolutely FREE OF CHARGE.
All you have to do is to show up on friday 16. august around 17.00 CET at Uppsala Bastionen (see map below) and bring your smile and money for beer and merchandise!
The party goes on at two stages – alternating between Main Stage and Lounge Stage – until 0.30. Both stages are covered by tents, so even if the weather is bad, you can enjoy the sounds of…
17.15 Ny Akustik (S)
…. just think of it: all these excellent bands for the price of 0 SEK… you just gotta be there!!
If you should happen be one of the poor people in the world that don’t know ANYTHING about the bands, here’s some info:
Quit Your Dayjob:
This map shows the excact location of the site. It takes about 5 minutes to walk from the Central Station and about 10 minutes from the boat from Copenhagen.
For Copenhageners it’s nice to know that the trains back to ol’ CPH departs every hour all through the night.
You can buy beer and food at the site, and of course records and t-shirts from all the bands that have any.
|The previous years…
As the 4 in VibraCrunch4 implies, this is not the first time we are doing this festival. It all started out 4 years ago when the local Malmö label called Vibrafon was asked by the Malmöfestival to put together a bill of cool artists. The boss at Vibrafon, Mr. Martin Theander, thought it would be cool to invite the soul mate label from Copenhagen to be co-host. This labe of course was Crunchy Frog. We started out having just one outdoor stage, and though it started raining in the evening, the first VibraCrunch was a great succes. The first year there was almost only Vibrafon and CF bands on the bill, but the next year we started inviting more outside bands, and developing the festival as a Danish/swedish brotherhood kinda thing. Still with a heavy base of our own bands of course.
Unfortunately Vibrafon just barely survived long enough to participate in VibraCrunch 2. The label caved in (with the signing of The Mopeds to CF as a result, and we also took over the management of http://www.vibrashop.com – so at least two “good” things came out of that…). The following year the Malmöfestival asked us to carry on the tradition, and we did it with pleasure. So even though it is now only a Crunchy Frog thing, we still take pride in presenting new intersting bands from both contries at the 1 day music feast. We hope that all the participants from the previous years and a lot of newcomers will take part this year and make it a great day for us all.
We want to thank Malmöfestivalen and especially Nicklas Johansson for being our partner in crime on this thing, and for supplying the funds to make this a FREE event.
C ya there!
