Created over ten years ago, Food For Your Senses has now grown into a festival featuring more than 70 acts performing over three days.
This year’s Food For Your Senses festival features a swaddle of extrovert, offbeat bands and a handful of artists familiar to Luxembourg audiences, such as party band Bonaparte (at Rockhal last year), mad Norwegians Kakkmaddafakka (who lit up den Atelier last October) and indie-folk artist Son Lux (a star at Exit07 in January).
UK acts to watch out for include sometime Bombay Bicycle Club vocalist Lucy Rose, sexually-charged garage punk chanteuse Findlay (photo), London indie rock group Apologies, I Have None and upcoming pop-funk star Dan Croll.
In addition to Son Lux, the US supplies hard-core bands Texas In July, I Wrestled A Bear Once and Brutality Will Prevail.
German artists at the festival are an eclectic bunch, including current folkpop faves Milky Chance (whose hit ‘Stolen Dance’ was all over radio this year), Berlin DJ act Alle Farben and NRW hip-hop formation Retrogott und Hulk Hodn.
Fans are also looking forward to cult Australian hardcore band Deez Nuts and a slew of local acts including the brilliant Artaban, Corbi from De Läb, young upstarts Tuys and Serge Tonnar and Legotrip.
The festival also features an art exhibition, which this year includes works by a number of Luxembourg and Belgian artists.
The festival site is accessible by bicycle, train and bus or via a nearby P&R facility--see the Food For Your Senses website for details and maps.
