(Source: Eno Web) Erik Honoré e-mails: Legendary artist and producer Brian Eno is confirmed as Artistic Director of 2012’s Punkt Festival. Eno will curate all 18 concerts and live remixes during the three day festival (updated thanks to Rory Walsh, now running from 6th to 8th September). Limited edition „earlybird“ passes at a reduced price are available now. Last time Eno curated a whole festival was at the Sydney Opera House. Then, the New South Wales Government called the festival „the biggest event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere“. Now, in 2012, Brian Eno curates the Punkt Festival at the new Kilden Performing Arts Centre in Kristiansand, where he will present some of his current favourite artists. The Punkt Festival, started in 2005, is based on two main pillars: The combination of main stage concerts and the immediate live remixes of these on a second stage, and the extensive musician network of directors/musicians/producers Jan Bang and Erik Honoré. This year’s Artist in Residence was David Sylvian, and all concerts were sold out.
