IQ Music 2012
The audience will be able to hear and see performances of several artistson 09. June in Belgrade Arena, for a total of 10 hours, with a variety of additional events.
IQ MUSIC will provide opportunity to young, still unknown performers to perform on stage at the Belgrade Arena. Bands will have the opportunity to qualify through open competition on the social networking site Facebook, on IQ MUSIC page, and to participate in the competition for this prestigious show. The competition, which starts 20th April, will not be limited just to Serbia, so the participation of young bands from the entire region it is expected.
The main star of the festival is a multi-talented American artist Marilyn Manson, who became modern icon of alternative rock music and pop culture by combining intelligent and provocative socio-involved themes in his songs. Marilyn Manson had never played in Serbia before, and on concert in Belgrade he will promote the new album "Born Villain", with recently published single "No Reflection".
Next to Marilyn Manson, performance will have cult Slovenian band Laibach, who proved their quality and success on the European scene. Great combination of avantgarde, experimental, and neo-classical with the biggest pop hits from different periods, accompanied by the original concert performances in audio and visual terms, do not leave anyone phlegmatic. Laibach is now on a new tour to promote the soundtrack of the movie Iron Sky, and is expected to release a double CD "Laibach Revisited."
IQ Music Festival, which will be held under the slogan "Use your head", would not be related exclusively to the genre of music, but above all the thought and idea which represents the music of these performers.
