Tel Aviv Alternative Rock Festival
Hola! We`ll play at Tel Aviv Alternative Rock Festival
in Israel on october 1st!
Buy tickets here:
Read more about the festival below...
The first ever alternative rock festival in Tel Aviv will take place on October 1st-3rd, with 4 acts on the first day, 6 acts on the second, and 4 more on the last day, with noon and evening shows. The shows will be held at 'Tzavta hall 1' (capacity: 380 people) and 'Tzavta 2' (capacity: 100 people). The festival is produced by Hamon Volume with Tzavta and it is the first time Israel's alternative scene takes this kind of center stage.
Tel Aviv's alternative rock scene is rapidly growing and developing. There is an increasing number of young band and performing artists composing and performing current music, influenced by the ever growing international alternative music scene.
In recent years there between 40 and 60 alternative rock groups based mostly in Tel Aviv, with the most prominent ones performing in international tours and festivals.
Locally, most alternative artists and bands perform in clubs which are associated with the genre and ultimately are confined to these specific places. On the other hand, the more "commercial" rock genre seems to be stuck in the same place for several years.
Our goal is to bring the alternative scene closer to the center and to the main stage, which is why we have chosen 'Tzavta' - home of Shlomo Artzi, Shalom Hanoch and possibly the most recognized main stream venue in Tel Aviv.
The need for a local alternative festival is great. There have been a few similar events in recent years, but never in Tel Aviv, which is the center of activity for the genre and its fans. In similar festivals crowds have exceeded 3,000 people and therefore we predict a similar response for our festival.
We expect roughly 3,000 people for the 3 days of the festival, ages 18-30 mostly. The fans will be able to purchase a ticket for all 3 days or a one day ticket which will grant access to every show on the day in both halls.
The festival's line up is still in the works, with the intention being to bring a wide section of the leading acts in Israel, such as:
Midnight Peacocks, Carusella, Haivrit, Antibiotika, Reines Girls, Electra, Amit Erez, Zaka and more.
These acts are well established in Israel's alternative scene and have a large fan base that grows with every show, this festival is the best place to see your favorite group, or discover a new group to follow.

Heroes & Zeros will perform live at FZW in Dortmund at Visions Music Magazine`s anniversary tour october 30th with Madsen, Bela B, Biffy Clyro and Eternal Tango.

This session is what became the project's debut album, titled "Session One: Oslo". An hour of 100% improvised versatile joy - inspired by the likes of Edgar Varese, Delia Derbyshire, Peter Zinovieff, Luigi Russolo, Daphne Oram and even actor Klaus Kinski.

Støttekonsert for Skral Festival 2. desember
Vi er veldig lei oss for at våre venner bak vår absolutte favorittfestival, Skral Festival, må legge ned grunnet økonomiske problemer! Derfor spiller vi, i regi av Nøgne Ø, en støttekonsert for "den lille festivalen med det store hjertet" på Luftslottet i Grimstad!
Tirsdag 2. desember trommes det sammen til en solid markering som skal fronte at gode initiativ ikke bør straffe seg! Målsetting er gründerne bak Skral etter denne datoen kan stryke en stor del av den private gjelden de har opparbeidet seg.
Alle dere 13000 som besøkte festivalen i år vet med andre ord hvor dere har å finne dere 2. desember, som en takk til den fantastiske gjengen bak Skral Festival!
We just arrived from a short tour in Germany, and we had a smashing time! Thanks to all the great people who showed up early at our shows, we really appreciate you!
Mini album release: "In the slipstream vol 1: live"
Heroes & Zeros proudly presents "In the slipstream vol 1: live". Only 1000 copies of this release will ever be made, and each and everyone will be handnumbered by yours truly. "In the slipstream vol 1" is dedicated to everyone who came out to see us over the last couple of years, and we offer this release as a tribute to all of you! For those of you who have never caught us live before, these 45 minutes features 5 live recordings that we feel captures what we`re about on stage, a trio who sounds as big as a six-piece, not afraid to mix things up and venture into free-form exercises if the mood is just right. Enjoy! We sure did!
In stores from july 26th.
Release consert at Canal Street Arendal Jazz Festival, july 26th.
