Iggy Pop, Living Colour in Piešťany

IGGY Pop, who will be the headliner of the Hodokvas music festival taking place at the airport in Piešťany between August 17 and 19, has asked the organizers to provide a live crocodile for his dressing room as one of his demands.

“He wants to have a crocodile in the cloakroom because he allegedly likes to feed them before each performance,” Miloš Oríšek, the co-organizer of the festival told TASR, adding that he hoped, however, that the musician was not being serious.

“Let’s hope he’s not really serious about this. Probably it’s just some kind of a joke and we hopefully will not have to look for a crocodile,” Oríšek said.

He also said that Iggy Pop had sent 20 pages of various demands, some of which are quite bizarre.

Apart from the crocodile, the singer also wishes to have two mega fans placed on the stage so that his hair blows in the wind as in one of Jon Bon Jovi’s music videos.

Apart from Iggy Pop, the festival will feature a lineup of 150 music bands including the US group Living Colour.
