Motorpsycho to play Haldern Festival

Haldern Pop Festival

While we are still impatiently waiting for the spring tour to get underway another date can be added to festival/summer tour: the band will appear at the 22nd annual Haldern Pop Festival. The festival will take place between August 03 & 05, 2006. Tickets can be purchased via above banner, they are 47 Euro & there are no one-day tickts available. With a capacity of 7000 the Haldern Pop Festival appears to be one of the smaller festivals. Besides Motorpsycho the exquisite line up includes Mogwai, Lamchop, Element of crime (the festival's "house"- band), Kante, Vashti Bunyan & others.

The band is also confirmed to headline Oslo's Øyafestival to be held a week after Haldern. It's kind of difficult to predict a schedule around these two dates -- maybe they'll be one off performances. There is a good chance though that the band will play more dates in August. For instance it wouldn't hurt to keep an eye on the Lowlands Festival's line up (to be held August 18-20) where the band has appeared in 1997, 2000 & 2002. Maybe they will fill up the weeks between Haldern & Lowlands with a couple of more festival or headlining shows.

Motorpsycho have last toured Europe's festival circuit in the summer 2002, when they took their collaboration with Jaga Jazzist on the road for seven shows & recorded "In the fishtank" in a dutch studio.
