With Mr. GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE)
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): All my best wishes to Greece. Thank you very much for letting me be with you again.
Athenscalling.gr: Where are you now? And how you had passed all these crazy of Covid-19 Pandemic Days?
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): I’m on the tour bus right now, on my way back to Vienna. I was in Italy and watched with colleagues and journalists a brilliant performance of Zucchero in the Arena di Verona. I was very fascinated by a virtual duet with Fabrizio de André, who died in 1999. Sensational thing. And that’s exactly what I missed. Finally concerts again. That’s my life and unfortunately it was very limited for a long time.
Athenscalling.gr: A new NOVA ROCK FESTIVAL in the year 2022, after Covid cancellations… I think that it is a special time for you… So I will ask you about it. How do you feel?
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): Somehow I still can’t believe it. There is a Nova Rock Festival this year! I really don’t know how to describe my anticipation.
Athenscalling.gr: O.k about you. And about NOVA ROCK FESTIVAL fans… How they welcomed this year’s festival?
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): We have missed you very much. What would we be without visitors and fans! We have come up with a few things in the meantime. You will be informed about them on our social media pages.
Athenscalling.gr: At the moment, that we are talking, tell us what exactly happens with the preparation of the festival?
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): I’m currently planning the Nova Rock Warm Up Party in one of the most iconic discos in Europe, the legendary U4. The quasi home of Falco. The DJ will be festival director Ewald Tatar himself… on May 13th. There we will show if we can still party.
Athenscalling.gr: Athenscalling.gr followers, many of them who will travel from Greece and from other place to Austria, for the NOVA ROCK FESTIVAL ask about the cancellations of the bands. Please can you tell us which ones they are?
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): Unfortunately, there are currently many overlaps and tour buses and equipment are not available in the required quantity in Europe. This forces many bands to re-route their tours and is still associated with postponements and cancellations. I don’t even want to talk about the tragic death of Taylor Hawkins. We are all still very much affected.
Athenscalling.gr: This year Athenscalling.gr put it on line interviews, with some of Austrian bands, of NOVA ROCK 2022 line up, B.Z.F.O.S, IGEL vs SHARK, KILL THE LYCAN, and in a few days we will put it on line, a new interview with MARCO POGO the front man of TURBOBIER! I must tell you the truth… Really we love their songs, of the Austrian bands. All of these bands they have nothing to envy from other groups in Europe and yet these groups are not known in Europe…. Why?
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): Austria is the country in the center of Europe and in its history has become a melting pot for many different cultures. This has created a uniqueness that exists nowhere else. Austrians are grumpy, always stressed, and that’s something you rarely find in the rest of the world. This, of course, flows into the music, just like the good food, the various digestible types of beer and wine, Gemütlichkeit and sociability with the right tendency to exaggeration and self-indulgence. The typical Austrian is a colorful, funny bird. Touring is of course also very expensive. That’s why the end of the line is usually in neighboring countries. The international market is too big, Austria is too small. J
Athenscalling.gr: Now please let’s play a game with the first letter of NOVA ROCK and please fill in the blanks, with any words you like…
(N)… (O)… (V)… (A)… (R)… (O)… (C)… (K)…
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): (N)… NAPALM DEATH (O)…OPETH (V)…VALHALLA (A)…ANTHRAX (R)… ROTTING CHRIST (O)…OVERKILL (C)…CALIBAN (K)…KISS
Athenscalling.gr: Have you something more to add about the NOVA ROCK FESTIVAL?
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): I would recommend our special gastronomy to everyone. With Max Stiegl we have a world-renowned chef at the start. At the Nova Rock Festival you can be spoiled culinary like in a top class restaurant. You won’t find that at other festivals. You won’t find lukewarm pizza and sticky pasta at our festival.
And of course every year the highlight: the “Frühschoppen” with Wendi’s Bohemian brass music and free beer tapping. Free beer!You simply can’t miss it.And there are a few good bands on top.
Athenscalling.gr: O.K … No more corona restrictions for festivals! …
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): Respect. Joy. Fun. Love. Peace. Rock’N’Roll.
Athenscalling.gr: Thank you Mr. Haubner for the interview and send all our love from Athenscalling.gr team, at the NOVA ROCK team and special to the festival director Mr. Ewald Tatar.
GEROLD HAUBNER (NOVA ROCK- PRESS OFFICE): Many thanks also from my side. I am looking forward to seeing you again at the festival.
