20:00 Brainstorm (Latvia)
The Story of BrainStorm is that of best friends who grow up together, went to the same school, shared the same dreams and together fulfilled them. Born in Latvia which was then part of the giant Soviet Union, they experienced a Soviet upbringing, the battle for a freedom and were part of the first generation to embrace new possibilities the freedom brought. Experiencing these two radical systems has shaped their musical style. After they conquered the hearts of music lovers in native Latvia and became a household name, the band took a chance on reaching the audiences beyond the borders of their motherland. First internationally released album „Among The Suns” with its catchy single “My Star” in year 2000 proved the ambitions were satisfied. “My Star” finished third in Eurovision Song Contest 2000. Album got released in Europe and particularly Belgians, Scandinavians and Baltic people embraced BrainStorm’s piece of work. „My Star“ for 16 weeks remained on Belgian national airplay charts. Band toured with own sold out shows and played festivals across Europe. During their career BrainStorm have released albums in Europe and Russia, supported bands like R.E.M., The Rolling Stones, Depeche Mode, e.t.c.. World-known photographer Anton Corbijn has made photos for three albums and designed the logo of the band. As A.Corbijn has described: “There is this beautiful thing that great bands have something… Identity and I think BrainStorm has that”.
