Fotis Sound at work

We did another giant leap in our preparation for the Boogie Brain last weekend. The festival site was visited by Mirek Michalak, the main sound engineer from Fotis Sound. His visit to the scene of the crime assured us everything is going to be perfect. And now, it is time for a joke: Sound system suppliers in Poland are divided into two categories: Fotis and the rest. The reason? If Fotis lacks of equipment they just simply buy it, the rest borrows it. And as the old Polish proverb says: it is a good habit not to borrow.

Menu with taste

According to the idea of the festival, dictate of mass culture must be stopped. Not only in music, but also in food. We have enough fast food, preservatives, dyes, boosters and other tasteless stuff. Fortunately, during the festival only specially prepared, vegetarian dishes will be served. Delicious menu with reasonable prices will be prepared by "Fundacja Amar – Pożywienie dla Zdrowia", publisher of the eco magazine "Zielony Rynek". The purpose of this organization is to support ecology and health related activities in everyday life. Health and ecology are unbreakably bound with simple, basic things. Because simplicity is the true nature of genius.

The mission of Amar foundation is to make people understand that food is also an art, because you can cook and eat like an artist. That is why delicious food made by Amar tastes great and everything is just the way it should be. It seems “normal” but is different, better. Palatable, healthy, colorful… open air and artistic ambience. And all of a sudden, it turns out that the highest level of music contemplation is the place where a real flavor exists.

So come and taste the real food! This taste will certainly satisfy you!

Boogie Edi on the podium

Edi - our hero Maciej Eiding, known as Edi, the official festival messenger was third in Polish Cycle Messenger’s Cup Poznan 2008 in Alleycat Polwiejska. He was cycling in the night race for the messengers from outside Poznan. Edi is our hero. His face is very well known to the police in the city greeting him with a tender smiles everyday. Edi is also a friend of the city guards supporting him while doing his propaganda work.

Professionals should know that Edi uses a fold-up bike: Unibike Mission frame, Shimano Deore LX gear, Novatec hub (rear) and Deore hub (front), Shimano Deore LX brakes (rear) and Deore brakes (front), No Name crank. But the most important influence on Edi style has some Scotch tape that glues the lamps and fenders in his bicycle. It looks like without the Scotch tape it could fall into pieces. Anyway, we think Edi is the best and we believe that next year he gonna beat everybody.
