Obonjan’s Second Wave
The soon-to-be pearl of the Adriatic, Obonjan, announced their second wave of musical acts and talks last week, and boy are those first year islanders in for a treat! Added to a bill that already boasted the likes of DJ Shadow, Roy Ayers, and Lindstrøm, were Four Tet, Floating Points, Gilles Peterson, Kate Tempest, Erol Alkan, Midland, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, and many, many more. This swell solidified a line up that covers the majority of the inaugural two month season (18th July – 10th September 2016), with just a few more additions to be made in the coming weeks. With the selection far too extensive to list in its entirety, you’ll just have to check out the programme schedule on their website to see the full rundown.
On top of the musical offering, figures such as author Daniel Pinchbeck, life coach Jules Evans, and TED fellow Tim ‘Mac’ Macartney, have been added to the bill of talks and workshops due to take place in the islands’ custom-built Geo-dome. They’ll be joining Mark Vernon, Rachel Armstrong, Nick Jankel, Zoe Cormier, and more, illuminating the assembled throng of willing castaways on subjects as diverse as astronomy, architecture, photography, music, philosophy and marine biology.
