The legendary Franck Vigroux will be headlining the festival this year. Franck is one of the few artists who are both a musician and a director.

He has performed and recorded with internationally renowned musicians such as Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic), Reinhold Friedl, Elliott Sharp, Joey Baron, Zeena Parkins, Ars Nova Ensemble Instrumental.

Also performing are major artists from Chile, Bulgaria, France, UK, Italy as well as Ireland and beyond!
