HARRY JENNER: Well cleary the beginning were among the best kept memories as I was learning 10 new things every minute and all was fresh and new and full of wonders :-)… probably two… one with Metallica 2003 for the first time together on stage and 2nd 2009 with Radiohead coming finally to Austria for their first time

ATHENS CALLING: Tell us please, about your strengths, from the festival Pr.Manager position?
HARRY JENNER: Though question as everyone might see this in a different shape, if you ask myself I would say I’m best when there is quite some important decisions
To make and all 10 of them in the same second, you need to focus, prioritize and they should be correct and save too ! But also in the long time logistic planning and my personal strength in this field is that I still love to go to visit other festivals and
I can see the festival very clearly from the audience point of view

ATHENS CALLING: How difficult is it, I mean to organize a festival in those days with all about the economic crisis… What do you think about it?
