No sleep for Captain Fufanu
Tromsø is renowned for breeding innovative artists within the electronic music field. Insomnia Festival seeks to evolve the creative energy this has given rise to by creating a plattform for new electronic music and techno culture.
Insomnia is a festival for innovative electronic music – which means music created with electronic contraptions. The creative process within the genre is as varied as the music itself, and the festival hopes to sample a variety of it. The Festival also combines new innovative music with new technology and design through public seminars during the festival. It all shapes through live concerts, dj/club events, seminar, exhibitions, performance, installations and debates. Our venues vary from Tromsøs beautiful old cinema, Verdensteatret and the student house Driv witch used to be the old youth house Brygga where artists like Bel Canto, Röyksopp and Rune Lindbæk started their career.
The festival has its base in Tromsø as the city was Norway’s capitol of house and techno when the genre emerged. Insomnia Festival runs as a non-profit event, with our main goal to create an artistic melting point and an important platform for innovative artists above the arctic circle.
Captain Fufanu consists of two youngsters from the Icelandic dance music scene and since their first gig in 2008, at the modest age of 16 (!), they have come a long way. Now also to the north of Norway for the first time! Kaktus and Gulli have now got a larger repertoire of music which continues to amaze and recruit new fans with their sincere and sophisticated approach to their unique take on electronic music with their mix of dub, techno, house and experimental electronica. The Icelandic underground techno label Reyk Veek has described the duo as “probably the youngest and brightest hope of the Icelandic electronic music scene”, so we are in for an exclusive treat!
