We are very happy to announce three new members to EJN, representing prestigious festivals and clubs in Europe:

Punkt (Kristiansand, Norway)
Punkt is a music festival in the city of Kristiansand in the south of Norway. The festival concept is centered around the concept Live Remix. This concept is an extension of how the curators of the festival, Jan Bang and Erik Honoré, have worked with a range of Nordic and international musicians; with live sampling and live electronics, and as record producers and remixers. Many prominent musicians and guest curators have contributed to the Punkt project, including Brian Eno, David Sylvian and John Paul Jones. In addition to the mothership festival in Kristiansand, Punkt events have been arranged in London, Paris, Tallinn, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Mannheim and other European cities, and more offspring events are planned.
