The well-loved Fran Palermo formation will once again give a dizzying concert, which continues to advance unbrokenly on the path of the noblest Rock & Roll, Tropical and Indie Rock traditions! 

Cosmic Wacho (ES)

The Málaga-based duo Cosmic Wacho is formed by the Spanish Alejandro Domínguez (Aless) and the Argentinian Franco Felice. Born in the midst of confinement (2020) and with a background far removed from tropical roots, the two producers and musicians come together to form a project that serves as a bridge between Latin sonorities and the urban avant-garde. Cumbia, as the favourite daughter of Latin American rhythms, serves as a mother ship to transport Cosmic Wacho's lyrical and sonic conceptual mix that recreates a musical universe unheard of on the current scene. 

Like immersing yourself in a bubble bath in the middle of a tropical sea. This is the fantastic and brand new eponymous debut album by Cosmic Wacho, that fabulous Spanish-Argentine duo who have made Latin their vocation and urban their devotion. Effervescent and relaxing, hypnotic and vibrant. In their sound we find that musical and psychedelic jungle in whose fauna live cumbia, bachata and calypso, flirting with trap, hip hop and pop. 

Almost as if the Meridian Brothers were going out for tequila with C Tangana, or as if Kevin Johansen were tangling with Quantic & Flowering Inferno. An invitation to enter a unique world full of sonic sensibilities in which Cosmic Wacho are our best guides. In 2022, Cosmic Wacho, in a state of grace, consolidated their status as the revelation band of the season. This is attested to by their performances at events of the calibre of BIME, Cooltural Fest and Cala Mijas, among many others, where they have boasted that unique sound mix that draws equally from the most ancestral tradition and the most radical modernity. 


Concert released with the support of the Liveurope.


Fran Palermo

Fran Palermo was formed by the singer-songwriter Henri Gonzo in late 2011 in Budapest, Hungary. The band’s music and style are characterized by different genres, mostly by indie, rock and roll, afro pop and even by mediterranean vibes. The unique and original soundscape requires a bigger band on the stage. The speciality of the band comes not just from mixing different instruments, but from the diverse origin of the members. They have a vivid inherited cultural background such as Cuban, Spanish, Greek and Hungarian. By now Fran Palermo has become one of Budapest’s main concert bands, owning numerous loyal fans. The band released their first EP called ‘Arizona’ at the end of 2011. Their next records, both EPs, are called Museum of Clouds (2012) and Natural Cash (2013). In 2013, Henri Gonzo moved to England for one and a half years, thus during this period the band only gave occasional concerts. After the ‘gap-year’ and a dynamic come back, the band released a new EP called Sun in Splendour, as the herald of the first full length album. In 2015, the first Self Titled album brought a new, tropical jungle-rock sound to the Hungarian music scene. Real recognition and popularity followed the release. Ever since than the band performed at each famous Hungarian music festival and was also finalist in a prestigious song competition. After their performance in the talent show called Nagy-Szín-Pad, where they received the highest votes from the jury, Fran Palermo was chosen the Discovery of the Year at Petőfi Music Awards. 

Only a year after their debut album, in May 2016 they released Razzle Dazzle, which is the band’s most vivid, colorful and diverse album yet and finished on every Hungarian album top list of the year. Fran Palermo is a returning guest to each great festival, such as Sziget Festival,
VOLT Festival, but they also performed at Telekom Electronic Beast Festival and at the Dutch Eurosonic Norderslag Showcase 2017 in Groningen. After touring around Hungary, the band desires to play on European stages.
