fredstock, the frederick street sound and light exploration society's annual festival, 2010


radio cegeste was invited to perform at Fredstock 2010, a festival of experimental music and sound, hosted by the Frederick Street Sound and Light Exploration Society, a venue space in central Wellington, run on the smell of an oily rag by Daniel Beban, Nell Thomas and friends, and part of a long tradition of free-jazz and improvisationally-oriented underground performance spaces in the city, stretching back over a decade.

essentially a celebration of the diverse musical community which oscillates around the venue, fostered by regular Sunday night 'variety shows' and non-hierarchical in structure, the lineup for the 2010 incarnation of the festival, with approximately 62 performers, can be read about in detail here
