Anything But…Generiq Festival 2012

Hot shows in the dead of winter.

One of the perks of running this site (well, besides getting into shows for free) is discovering all the varied types of “festivals” around the world. Here’s one from France and Switzerland — The Generiq Festival — which runs from November 21-December 2, 2012. It’s a standard showcase festival with dozens of acts from around the world, but the twist with Generiq is that the shows are spread across a dozen cities in the Rhine-Rhone region. Some of the locales include Dijon, Besançon, Baume-Les-Dames, Belfort, Montbéliard, Mulhouse, Kingersheim, Dole, and Epinal.

This year, there will be over 100 shows with about sixty artists with a spotlight on both Colombian based talent and the Danish scene. Here’s a breakdown on shows by city.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
