Saturday 9 August 2008: LE PLACARD festival
Headphone concerts for headphoned people.
LE PLACARD is a headphone concert festival that deals with concentration, intimacy, time warp, and teleportation. As part of the European Sound Delta project, over a hundred of these Le Placard festivals will take place in different cities, always for the duration of 24h or more. Le Placard is an open program, providing headphone spaces open for any performer that would like to perform in the programme. Interested performers should register online on forehand, using the project website. Rhine-Danube Placards consist of series of 30 minutes performances, open to the participation of local musical acts.
