As I think many of you know, we’re always busy promoting the little guy and not in the business of promoting megastars. Generally anyway. He’s a bit like marmite for me, but I know a lot of you love Bruce Springsteen, keynote music speaker at SXSW this year. Below is the performance-type video for ‘Death to My Hometown’. Enjoy it, if he rings your bells. I’ve also included his known appearances in the UK this summer, current as of today.

Preview: Soundwave Croatia 2012

 
By on Tuesday, 6th March 2012 at 9:00 am
 

Sometimes you need a summer holiday but also want to the fun and the freedom of a music festival, so what better way to combine the two than a foreign festival. Take a trip this summer (19-23 July) to Tisno, Croatia, for 4 days of live music, boat parties and beautiful beaches at Soundwave Croatia!

And who will you be seeing if you take the flight to Eastern Europe? Already confirmed are the Long Island hip hop masters De La Soul, the indie folkster Fink (pictured above), the mesmerising vocal styles of Ghostpoet and the turntablist troubadour DJ Yoda.

There will be over 50 artists providing the soundtrack to the summer across a range of boat parties, a beach terrace full of DJs and a tiki bar. Showcasing their skills in to the beach bods and body poppers include the BBC 6’s renegade of funk Craig Charles, Asia’s first World DMC champion DJ Kentaro, the elegantly experimental Submotion Orchestra and Metronomy‘s own Olugbenga.

For just £105 + booking fees you can enjoy four days of nothing but sunshine and live music outside of the Eurozone. For more information visit the official Web site and to keep an eye out for further announcements and stage times.
