Rock In Opposition Reveals First Acts
The first names for this year’s Rock In Opposition event have been revealed – Magma, Offering, Doctor Nerve, Le Silo, Artaud Beats, October Equus, Stabat Akish, Caillou and NI will appear at the three-day festival in France in September.
RIO’s most recent format took shape in 2007 after Henry Cow created the anti-industry movement in the late 1970s. As with every incarnation, the requirements for bands who wish to appear are that they must make innovative music and they must stand in opposition to the commercial music industry.
The 2014 event takes place at the Maison de la Musique, Cap Decouverte, Carmaux, during the weekend of September 19-21.
More acts are to be announced in due course and tickets are on sale now via the RIO website.
