The SOTU (Sounds Of The Underground) is a five day festival in Amsterdam, which is happening 5, 9, 10, 11, 12 May 2013 in a collaboration between venues OCCII, OT301 and Vondelbunker. On the 5th of May we collaborate with the Doek Festival on a night in the Vondelbunker. In 2012 we celebrated a succesfull first edition with around 90 acts and performances over 4 locations. The festival concentrates on alternative and independent music culture with noise, indie rock, psychedelia, avant-garde, bass music, improv jazz and underground dance. Also included within the program are documentaries, workshops, art and performances. This second edition is realized thanks to the dedication and contributions from 25 organizations, collectives and curators.
