I have done lecture/presentation on free software on teh Exit Festival in
and I mentioned Linux Audio Consortium as an excellent partner for the
future for the festivals that are involved in free software support.
I  recommended them to organize a special event for Linux audio for the next
year festival.
Stay tuned and be prepared to participate :)

Best wishes,
