Popkomm Festival program confirmed

Popkomm just sent out the festival program for 2010: 60 artists in 14 locations over two days.

In an interview with German b2b magazine ‘Musikwoche‘ Popkomm Festival Manager Paul Cheetham stated the downsized program (60 acts in 2010 to nearly 400 in 2008 / here is a list of all 2010 and 2008 festival artists) is due to his efforts to focus and highlight higher quality instead of a broad mass of bands.

One thought on “Popkomm Festival program confirmed

  1. Mr Fogg,
    Thank you again for the coverage.
    It should be pointed out that Popkomm this year is part of Berlin Music Week so as well as the 60 Popkomm showcase artists, there is also a number of artists performing at Berlin Festival, Jazzkomm, Berlin Clubnacht, and all other events under BMW. So, the total number of acts performing in Berlin during Popkomm is probably not dissimilar to 2008. These 60 are purely the ones booked and promoted by Popkomm.
    Regards
    Paul
