29/10/2009   Some good & some bad news ... 

Latest newsFirst the bad news ... :-(

The management of the double bill tour ‘Laibach & Juno Reactor’ informed us that both bands won’t be able to make it to our BIMFEST due to ‘logistic’ reasons. Of course it’s needless to say we are not happy with this (one-sided) decision that decapitated our BIMFEST line-up in one blow, just two months before D-day. In an attempt to cut our losses and to enlighten the disappointment of those amongst you, who just like us, where looking forward to this, we are negotiating for alternative date for this package.  
We are sorry about the inconveniences this might cause but it is way beyond our own will.
As soon we have more news we will post it here!

But now some good news! :-)

Of course we couldn’t and wouldn’t leave our BIMFEST beheaded, so we at BodyBeats & Dark Entries worked day and night to find last minute replacements for this sad cancellation… And we are please to tell you that the Danish cult and electro band LEAETHERSTRIP confirmed to headline BIMFEST 2009 while, in the real BIM tradition, the English ‘80’s New-Wave band C CAT TRANCE, responsible for New Wave Club Classic tracks like ‘Shake The Mind’ & ‘Hypnotized’,  will enforce the further line-up.  C CAT TRANCE last concert on Belgian soil dates back to 1988, when the played at the renown Brussels concert club Ancienne Belgique!
