The Design: "Insomnia"
In considering the "Festival" theme, what came to mind for Bene was joy, dancing, drugs, easiness, sleepiness, and fireworks. This design somehow captures the energy of all these experiences into one vibrant, frenetic scene inspired by ceremony and celebration from all around the world.
Evoking vintage Japanese cartoons and product labeling, the characters at the top of the design read "Insomnia," and serve as a tacit narrative of the fever dream unfolding below. Drawing on themes and characters pervasive in his concert poster work - Bene's bold design is a nod to the music, the energy, and the color that make up the "Festival" experience.
