Over the last few years, the festival has invited a great many national and international artists from a variety of artistic disciplines, although these are mainly sound-based.

In Basque we usually say that we are born to see eleven. ERTZ 11 wonders whether we may be born to listen to eleven. The thing is, as we reminded people at the end of our anniversary in 2009, the number eleven, at least in Basque, is not just the number that comes after ten, but is also the one that represents all the numbers that come after this. It is quite likely that for the ERTZ Festival, and this collection of types of music, sounds, or touches, or if you prefer, of listening proposals, this definition of eleven ends up being a little big, over-ambitious, and excessive. Because if accepting this definition means trying to sum up all the ideas and projects that we aim to carry out from now on, this would be like fitting into a shirt that was too loose, and would also mean forgetting the very function of what they call the future. It is as if everything were already written.
