Something slightly weird is bugging our chers copains at resmusica.

Tomorrowland is a hard-core electro-pop music festival in Antwerp.

This weekend they’ve invited the Belgian National Orchestra to show how it’s done unplugged.

Go figure.

    Excellent! Great festival with a great idea. Blunier will be a perfect conductor for this event. Now we only need a nice video feed!

    There’s another interesting article on resartica published today about the opera Bluthaus by Haas. Enjoyed this opera in Vienna last year. Great story, very memorable.

    Jajaja. I have many friends going there.

    Maybe LSD, and the other drugs that all those guys are in Make them appreciate classical music better?

    In any case, another failed apporach to “reach new audiences” is approaching. Its like watching an accident hapoen in slo-mo.
