Den anerkjente jazzblekka Downbeat Magazine, ved Bill Meyers, har skrevet grundig og fint om årets Blow Out! Festival. Festivalen roses for et program av høy kvalitet og variasjon, god og intens stemning:
This year’s festival, which ran Aug. 16–19 underscored the connections that improvisational practices forge between music scenes, nationalities and generations. Performers included veteran improvisers from England, Germany, the U.S. and Sweden; local musicians who play rock, classical and folk music; and a host of young Scandinavian women whose acumen and commitment bode well for the futures of free-jazz and experimental music. The quality rarely flagged, and neither did the musicians’ energy and relish for intense engagement.
