Stage Europe Network is a collaboration of six cultural organizations from six different European countries: France, Germany, Poland, Norway, Iceland and The Netherlands. Their main goal is to motivate young people to actively participate in music in an European context and give them a intercultural learning experience. Music is a powerful medium of intercultural communication, that can offer young musicians from different countries the chance to express themselves by sharing their common passion.
On Tour is the theme of this multilateral exchange project as a result of the Stage Europe Network. This Dutch / Icelandic project involves young people from six European countries creating an intercultural and European experience with pop culture as a tool. They will travel, live and work together for nine days based on the theme: On Tour. They will explore the theme literal by traveling to Iceland and from Iceland to the Netherlands and then back home. It deals with mobility and borders. A very dynamic exchange with presentations at festivals in Iceland and The Netherlands, with collaborations of youngsters creating new songs, making videos and photos, living and traveling together. Go with us On Tour!
A.JAM A.JAM is inspired by the Hip Hop and Soul scene in France, but they approach it in a Jazzy way. The band makes a groovy and energetic sound with drums, bass and vocals combined with electronics. ENCHANTED HUNTERS Enchanted Hunters is a young Polish trio that combines elements from Dreamy Pop and Folk in their music. They create a nostalgic atmosphere that now and then evolves in a psychedelic sound with references to American Indie Rock from the nineties. Their debut album Peoria was released last year. KJURR A new surprise from Iceland is the trio Kjurr. Since March they are building on their reputation within the Icelandic music scene and in August they will release their
ﬁrst Ep. LES DYNAMIC Les Dynamic is a progressive metal band from Drammen in Norway. This young band combines Heavy Metal riffs with catchy Pop oriented melodies. The arrangements are however closer to the progressive metal bands of today.
MOVING HOUSES A combination of nationalities, instruments and genres come together in the German band Moving Houses. That it is difﬁcult to label this band should be pretty obvious. VöK Vӧk was only founded this year, but they have already won the pretentious The Ice-
landic Music Experiments. Vӧk is a combination of vocalist/guitarist Margrét Rán Magnusdóttir and saxophonist/ electronics Andri Már Enoksson.
