New alternative musical “SGA” throws in the towel
The festival has decided to throw in the towel, with only a bit more than a month left before it was to take place. The reasons for the cancellations are said to be poor sales, and some key personnel that dropped out. Not surprisingly since they did have troubles from start when Elegant Machinery dropped out and later also Mr Jones Machine
Note also that Arvika has a very strong electro programming this year with bands such as Front 242, Hocico, Covenant playing amongst such mainstream acts as Aphex Twin, Röyksopp and Digitalism.
Bands that were scheduled to play included Assemblage 23, Autodafeh, Clan Of Xymox, De/Vision, Funker Vogt, Solitary Experiments, Virgins O.R Pigeons and many more, around 30 in total.
