2011

Music video festival’s video and movie screenings together with live clubs and electronic music event Time Tunnel attracted, during the five event days, roughly 5 000 visitors. Special screenings presented the more colorful side of the music. The top favorite, standing out from the program, was Queen-screenings. In addition, Danny retrospective and colorful electro-videos screenings attracted the audience.
