Due to overwhelming demand, Far East Film Festival’s Nights are back this year! For the thirteenth edition, however, the venue for all but one of the events is moving from Teatro San Giorgio to Parco del Cormor (just outside of the city center), which will be transformed for this occasion into an authentic, completely covered nightclub.
The Far East Village @ Parco del Cormor – kept a secret until now – will be the setting for the best DJ music which will provide an explosive mix of metropolitan beats and sounds that will have Far East Film Festival followers dancing all through the night! Headlining at the Far East Village stage @ Parco del Cormor will be talented stars, both rising and established, who will be performing for the first time in Udine.
This will kick off on Saturday 30th April with the incomparable Greg Wilson from London, considered among the top 20 DJs in the world, who will take to the turntable for what will be an unforgettable session.
The Nights continue on Thursday 5th May, this time at Visionario Cinema on Via Asquini, with eclectic music from Zhao, a Pekinese DJ who mixes sounds from 5 different continents. Guest DJ at some of the best clubs in the world, he has performed with artists like Konono n.1 and Pan Sonic.
Next up on Friday 6th May at the Far East Village @ Parco del Cormor, a force of nature from Sri Lanka: Mrs. Rea K, an eclectic artist who flows seamlessly between stringed instruments, voice and cool electro-minimal grooves. Beware Communication, who collaborated on this evening, has organized for DJ Agazzi & Bhard to be the opening act.
And finally, at Parco del Cormor, to close the Far East Film Festival in style on Saturday 7th May, a DJ set that needs no introduction: Andy Butler, Hercules & Love Affair DJ set who was catapulted in 2008 to the top of the international charts with the single Blind (a collaboration with Antony and the Johnsons). This project, created in the Big Apple, is known as the best new dance music right now: DJ and producer Andy Butler has created a unique and distinctive sound inspired by 70s disco, funk and synthesizers. The Andy Butler, Hercules & Love Affair DJ set is coming to the Far East Film Festival of Udine thanks to a collaboration with the independent Udinese label Reddarmy. Supporter, Electrosacher.
But Far East Nights 2011 doesn’t end there. To complete the jam-packed calendar, there will be an event in the city center at Via Paolo Sarpi scheduled for Wednesday 4th May. On this weekday, traditionally dedicated to the aperitivo, the city center street will come alive with performances, live sets from local bands and many more DJ.
