Plovdiv Game Jam 2018

Plovdiv Game Jam is a part of the Global Game Jam (GGJ) - the world's largest game creation event. It is open to anyone interested in video games - professionals, students or just people with talent!

The idea behind the event is to get together a mix of people with different backgrounds, interests, and skills, and motivate them to work together on an idea - to plan and execute the concept of a game in 48 hours. Just for the sake of the challenge!

NU/ANCE live at Bee Bop Café

Probably the youngest and fastest growing alternative rock band in Bulgaria. With their energy charge on and off the stage, they continue to create new music and gather new audiences. The boys are often compared to the sound and sensation of serious groups such as Muse, Highly Suspect and others. Over the past two years, they have consolidated their place on the alternative scene with more than 50 club and festival events. In June 2017, their first EP-0.4 came out. They will introduce us to their new vocal, with whom they will present some of their new songs for the first time.

Moonwalks [detroit, usa] в Пловдив // support: Oohs!

A good start of the year for the Alarma Punk Jazz Fest with the psychedelic-dark-space-rock and roll trio Moonwalks from Detroit, Michigan (Jacob Dean - guitar, vocals, Kate Gutwald - bass and Kerrigan Pierce - drums). The new album of Moonwalks will be released literally on the day of the concert in Plovdiv. Of course, the first pieces will be available along with the band.

27th January

Big Beat party w/ Schnitter

Evenings are all the same. We go 20 years back. We're in a smoky, neon basement in Faringdon. We can’t hear well. We see mostly the white part of the eyes of others. Our pulse is 130. The vibrations in our belly - too. The manifesto is: 1 big beats are the best 2 get high all the time. Life is nasty, but it's not part of it. We have no money for a taxi, so the only option is to stay until morning.

There is no closing sentence.
