A few years ago some music loving students decided to organize a festival and BAMMMMM: a few years later it’s one of the best free music festivals in Eindhoven. We’re talking about Plugged, of course. Young, talented artists, good weather (this has already been arranged), free entrance and (here ends the free and starts the cheap part) beer, resulting in an amazing ambiance and a great festival.
In the past Plugged has seen acts like Lookapony, Tamarin Desert, Grim Tim and MOOON . And oh yeah: Studium Generale will take care of the headliner this year: Caïro Liberatioin Front.
Cairo Liberation Front are electro cha3bi pioneers, as featured in New York Times, Afropop Worldwide and Okay Africa. Maybe you’ve seen them perform at festivals as Amsterdam Dance Event, STRP and Best Kept Secret around Europe. or in underground clubs throughout Europe.
CLF promotes the sonic Arabic revolution. Electro cha3bi comes from the popular neighborhoods of Cairo. Producers use cracked software; combine American hip-hop, eurohouse and Arabic rhythms. Like Omar Souleyman meeting Sean Paul and Aphex Twin at a wedding party. It has the live power of punk rock shows and early house parties. In their first year Cairo Liberation Front produced mixtapes that premiered at WDR (German national radio), The Quietus, Playground Magazine (biggest Spanish pop medium) and leading world music blogs like Afropop Worldwide, Generation Bass and Okay Africa.
On stage Cairo Liberation Front performs with one DJ, one MC and one hypeman (a colonel). Sometimes they are joined by belly dancers, döner vendors and other friends. The collective is known for their highly energetic live performances. In their first year they played more then 40 times in whole Europe, from underground clubs to big festivals. Join the revolution and say Yalla!
