Luka Heindrichs from De Gudde Wëllen, was a guest on the Sam Steen show on Today Radio, providing insights into the remarkable event of USINA and shedding light on the extensive organization process behind it. He appreciates the fact that USINA is put together by all different people with different tastes, stating, “You have to tune everybody in but it’s a lot of fun”.

Talking Music

The participating venues view the festival as an excellent opportunity to showcase their own in-house talent and attract a larger audience. When constructing the festival's time schedule, the team was very careful not to have two acts with a similar audience play at the same time. They wanted to keep things as simple as possible for all the festival goers.

The festival is reachable via public transportation. Festival-goers can opt for the TICE bus line 9 and get off at the Skatepark P&R stop, or they can choose the national railway line 60A and get off at the Dudelange-Usines station.

For folks wishing to come by car, the CFL is organising shuttle buses from and to a P+R parking between Bettembourg and Dudelange.

Day tickets and weekend passes are still available to purchase.

Luka recommends checking out the band Altin Gün whom he called "the shooting star of European music" and Luxembourgish DJ Das Radial. Make sure to listen to the full interview to get the full list of recommendations.
