Rocanotherworld is not just a music festival. It is a journey full of discoveries in the world of art, music and people. Initiated in 2016 in Iasi, this event is organized by the Creative Industries Association and Showberry. The festival brings together people from different backgrounds, providing a vibrant and diverse environment where they (re)connect to values ​​such as curiosity, individuality and caring for others. Rocanotherworld 2024 is a balanced mix of live performances and related events, promoting the values ​​of #becurious , #bedifferent and #beforothers. 

Alternosfera comes with 6 albums and an EP behind it, ready to transport in an unforgettable sound experience. Their lyrics often deal with topics like love, but they don’t hesitate to touch on social or political issues as well. Their sound stands out as unique on the Moldovan music scene, with their inspiration ranging from the 80s to the Seattle grunge of the 90s. 

Known for its unique way of combining elements of Romanian folklore with urban beats and electronic sounds, ARGATU officially debuted in 2012, becoming a member of the group Culese din Cartier, founded by Subcarpathians. With 10 released albums, he has created an impressive catalog that serves as a bridge between old and new, traditional and modern, embodying a variety of musical genres such as hip-hop, grime, dubstep, drum&bass, dub, dancehall or basshouse. The latest album and independent release, entitled “Tezaur”, was released on December 1, 2023, and marked a new chapter in his artistic journey. 

With 30 years of experience in the field of music and thousands of active concerts, Sarmalele Reci stands out for its originality and diversity of styles. With 8 albums under their belt, this band brings an innovative mix of rock’n’roll, funk, jazz and folk. Their songs have iconic and still relevant messages, making up a repertoire that has been hummed for generations. 

Frate Gheorghe is a band from the Republic of Moldova , consisting of four talented and passionate members: Vitalie Colt on bass guitar , Sandu Cordonean on keyboards and guitar, Seva Peev on drums and Gheorghe Busila as lead singer and guitarist. With an eclectic and original approach, the band combines various musical styles such as folk, reggae, rock and rap. 

Her music is the result of a rich and diverse mix of musical influences. It goes from indie-pop with Tune Yards or Radiohead, to American hip-hop like Danger Doom and Latin music with La Fania All Stars or Juana Molina. In his compositions and videos, La Chica   creates a synthesis between classical music, rap, themes about death, street art or Frida Kahlo. He was part of tours with artists such as Yaël Naim or Zap Mama. 

RoadkillSoda started to make its presence felt in 2011 and since then has become a true representative of rock’n’roll. The band conquered its place not only in the local landscape, but also outside the borders of the country. The 70’s atmosphere blends perfectly with the riffs, solos, powerful bass lines and intense vocals, all accompanied by beats that make your heart beat faster. 

Paul Tihan and Andra Andriucă , both from Iasi, share the same stage during their album release tour. Paul explores his thoughts and experiences through an indie poetry rock quintet , while Andra translates into lyrics and chords stories for the soul in an indie, pop-rock style.

Dimitri’s Bats brings a new and independent perspective to the alternative-pop scene in Romania. The band deftly juggles between dancefloor beats and alternative riffs, creating an eclectic sonic mix with dark undertones in a unique vibe. 

Their latest EP, entitled ” Monobloc “, was released in early 2023, followed by a national tour and several concerts in Europe.
