Due to some problems Farzad couldn’t go with his band and he playbacked the songs (instead of guitar parts that he played) with video clips that had been made by his paintings, and he played on it. it was a concert with a different visual performance. Some tracks from Albums “One”, “Two” and “Three” was playing in that gig. For view some pics from that concert checkBand Photos page.
There were 12 Iranian bands and musicians from Iran and Europe with various styles in that Festival. Goal of festival was make progress for new Iranian music styles instead of current commercial styles.
