This isn’t such a surprise, but it is true. Siren’s main stage, sited in the Piazza del Popolo, had its back to an epic expanse of sea, visible from a perfect vantage point near the town’s apex. Almost every band was awed by its vertiginous beauty and it felt as if performances were lifted because of it. But it wasn’t just here, from this point onwards, navigating the festival was a bit like some kind of immersive promenade performance – drifting between the various stages and encountering people, sights and most importantly, sound noisily wedded to its environs.” Amy Pettifer.
SIREN FEST 2014: CHE CARTELLONE! Il Vasto Siren Fest lancia un guanto di sfida ai grandi festival italiani. E’ obiettivamente difficile non essere emozionati da un cartellone che mette insieme The National e Mogwai, John Grant e Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), e ancora The Drones, Dry the River, Soft Moon, Fuck Buttons e Tycho.
‘Il Vasto Siren Fest ha saputo porre sullo stesso livello artisti e pubblico attraverso un fortissimo legame umano, confezionando un vero e proprio festival a dimensione d’uomo, bilanciato in maniera certosina’.
