From the press release:

For the first time ever, Israel will host an international music conference – “Heineken Music Conference”. The conference will take place on Tuesday – Wednesday, 1-2 of September 2009 in the Israel Trade Fairs Center in Tel-Aviv, under the initiative of the Heineken brand… The Heineken Music Conference will host senior and key personalities from the international music industry that will arrive especially to Israel in order to participate in the conference, as well as local representatives from the Israeli music scene, among them: record company representatives, artist managers, international agents, media personalities and producers… An indie festival will take place in the evening, with preferences by MGMT, Faith No More, Dinosaur jr., LCD Soundsystem in a special Disco set, The Dallas Guild and the Monotonix.

Usually I’d throw in some clever commentary but all I can think is wow! I am impressed that this was pulled off. And that it’s going to happen. It’s not just a kick ass show, but also an industry meetup that will help get Israel on the international music map. Well, hopefully anyway. The list of Industry bigwigs is impressive and program sounds pretty good! So.. for more information, check out www.heineken.co.il and for press inquiries call Hani Levi, Gil-Ad Branding P.R. 03-6448050 / 054-6644677.

    That’s pretty freakin’ cool. Muffti loves faith no more and dino jr., though he’s surprised that the former qualifies as an ‘indie’ band…

    Seriously fantastic. I love Dinosaur Jr.’s “I feel the pain.” Wish it was happening a couple of weeks later :)

    ….Faith No More being Muffti’s personal motto.
