The Wire



Numusic Festival of progressive and avant garde music in Stavanger, Norway, has announced that their forthcoming instalment will take place over ten days between 8–18 September 2010. A considerable increase from the usual four day events programme, especially after festival organisers Nuproductions learnt that the administration funding which they had expected from Stavanger city council had been completely cut.

The 2010 event is to be based loosely around the theme "Rhythm, the Rhythm!" and is set to include performances from Grandmaster Flash, Bugge Wesseltoft & Henrik Schwarz and Lee “Scratch” Perry. Also included is the Neu!/Hallogallo 2010 project, a group formed by Michael Rother (formerly of Neu! and Kraftwerk) to perform the music of Neu!
