WORM and The Quietus team up to bring a mix of new and celebrated alternative acts to Rotterdam.
WORM decided to create a festival with a difference. Rather than look to the international press just for support, WORM threw down the gauntlet to internationally renowned music site The Quietus, to help programme a day of alternative fun in Rotterdam.
The Quietus will visit WORM’s ‘Culture Bunker’ and bring new and inspiring avant-garde sounds to Rotterdam. WORM will respond in kind, adding piquant dashes of “hot-Roffa sonic sambal” to the overall mix.
Expect exciting new names from the British underground (some making their mainland European debut) some local heroes and Benelux buddies, leftfield deejays and John Doran reading from his brilliant book, Jolly Lad!
As first name on the bill, we are very happy to announce legendary bass player Mike Watt’s brilliant rock opera project, Il Sogno Del Marinaio.
Bassist mike watt (Minutemen, Firehose, The Stooges), guitarist Stefano Pilia, and drummer Andrea Belfi are back to dish out another helping of idiosyncratic rock opera; making tuneful pastiches out of beat verse, and mixing a strange brew of punk, progressive, country and jazz.
