The music rocks and the movies are mighty, but don’t forget NXNE’s terrific talk, courtesy of the fest’s excellent conference element unfolding at the Holiday Inn.
Friday’s celebrity interviews feature electro-pop icon Thomas Dolby (noon ) and BBC broadcaster Bob Harris (2 pm, both in Regency B). Hip-hop heavy Fab 5 Freddy gets the Saturday interviews started (Regency D, see feature, this page), while Strangler Hugh Cornwell checks into the Regency B at 1:15 pm. Then catch hip-hop power Sheek Louch at 2:30 pm (Regency A).
