Monday, 4 Nov. 2002 / Festsaal Messe Basel
The guitarist, singer, composer and producer, who is recognized as a creative genius worldwide, Dave Stewart (formerly Eurythmics) gathered together artists published by his provocative independent label «Artist Network» for an exclusive event at our festival.
After the opening program of Hawskley Workmann, who was frenetically praised at the Paleo festival 2002, the very diverse second set was carried by Dave Stewart’s band «Da Univerzal Playaz» with Gary «Mudbone» Cooper (formerly P-Funk) and went from pop to hip hop and reggae. The young Jamaican singer Nasz Seid also participated. Joining them, at spacious intervals, the then 17-year-old guitar wonder named Joanne Shaw Taylor, the saxophonist Candy Dulfer as well as the world star Jimmy Cliff. A summit for which even longer travel times were worth it.
