A special 90 minute highlights programme is to be aired, from last weekend's sell-out Witnness festival. It will be broadcast this Friday, 19th July at 11pm on Network 2, and will feature live performances and interviews.
Witnness music fans will be able to relive their best moments and pick themselves out in the crowds. The 90 minute special includes highlights from the main stages, exclusive acoustic performances, rubbing shoulders with stars in the Treatment TV tent with artist interviews from: Beverley Knight, Jimmy Eat World, Wilt, Rival Schools, Reindeer Section, Mercury Rev, The Bluetones, Foo Fighters, The Libertines, Chemicals Brothers and No Doubt
Viewers can catch first class live performances from Witnness ‘main’ and Witnness ‘upstage’ including The Hives, Beverley Knight, Jimmy Eat World, A, Polyphonic Spree, Dandy Warhols, Basement Jaxx, Black Rebel Motor Cycle Club, Green Day, Foo Fighters, The Revs, Ian Brown and of course Oasis.
Festival artists were determined to give something special back to fans at the event. The Treatment TV tent allowed a privileged few hundred people (who had received a VIP upgrade to their ticket) access into the Treatment TV tent where artists performed intimate acoustic sets. 2TV were there to capture these special Witnness moments. Gary Lightbody of The Reindeer Section, Wilt and The Bluetones were just some of the artists who performed acoustic sets with many featuring on the Witnness 2002 programme. Unplugged sessions also came from The Parkinsons who invited members of the audience on stage with them while The Revs crowd-surfed over the small audience.
