The idea to perform Electro live on stage is what the three musicians found for themselves and they are playing a set that is ruff and tender, bouncy and crackly, mostly massive and sometimes fragile. First concerts in summer 2017 made the trio an insider tipp that is being passed around right now.

AIRTIST, the Austrian-Hungarian group consisting of Döme, Szabolcs Gimesi and Markus Meurer, can be described as an exceptional music project that brings together three ancient instruments in an impressive modality. The sounds of human beatbox, the jewharp and didgeridoo merge into organic beats creating a vibrant and energetic ambiance that can definitely be felt and experienced in their live concerts. Despite the cultural heritage relating to the origin of their instruments the music of AIRTIST speaks a universal language that gets along without electronically produced elements. Thus this matter of fact is well illustrated in the name of the group that corresponds to the connective link between the three artists: AIR that is breathed and likewise oscillates the instruments into vibration.

The most impressive songs have been written at home, they tell a story and often reflect life experiences. AVEC demonstrates that you don’t need to be able to read music, in order to write a good song. Don’t overthink, but write from the heart not the head. That AVEC writes from the heart becomes clear in every verse and every refrain. Writing music is how she deals with difficult personal experiences and feelings – the deep and meaningful connotations in her lyrics oppose the gentle plucking of her guitar strings. It is melancholic but hopeful: the sun will rise again tomorrow.

Baloji means “man of science” in Swahili, but during the colonial period, that meaning shifted to signify “man of the occult sciences” and then “sorcerer”. His first album, “Hotel Impala”, was conceived as a reply to a letter he received from his mother after a 25-year absence. Give in to the sorcery!

Cancel the Apocalypse

CANCEL THE APOCALYPSE is the reunion of Toulouse metal/hardcore musicians and Bordeaux classical musicians. Only daring and extremist minds would have thought of such an ensemble. With vocals, drums and an electric guitar on one side playing against a totally unexpected classical guitar and a cello on the other. This improbable union creates a burning and baffling magma where the combination of a hardline atmosphere and tortured voices answer rich and pleasurable baroque melodies in equal measure. A sound never heard before.



The music of the brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke performing under the moniker CEEYS – from the French VIOLONCELLE and KEYS – follows a minimalistic approach of composition and improvisation. Shifting freely between avant-garde and pop, it combines elements of jazz, ambient and classical chamber music: "Raised during the last decade of the former GDR, we try to capture our memories, impressions and feelings towards these rather hybrid times in our releases."

Erregung öffentlicher Erregung

A feast for body and soul, as the quintet takes us with its herbaceous post-punk into another time. A journey into the 80s with rhythmic basses, sharp guitars, keyboards and synthesizers, spiced up with finely pointed lyrics. Courageously, without cautious restraint, when public excitement is aroused, it is openly doubted, questioned, demanded. The dark sides also have their place here - there is talk of self-made expectations of life, behavioral codices, despair, social constraints and adaptability. Anja Kasten (vocals), Michael Schmid (drums), Michael Hager (guitar), Laurens Bauer (bass) and Philipp Tögel (synthesizer) make honest music that finds clear words and melodically sets us into a gentle intoxication. The public excitement about their music was rather secondary to the musicians from Hamburg and Berlin. They preferred to play "crashing concerts in small cellars and record a few songs". But that times should be over, because among music connoisseurs they already have been celebrated for some time as an insider tip.

The rhythm section hints at the great history of dirty funk and r’n’b, but the grooves are firmly of today: dance-centered and broken up at the best possible joints.


Kumbia Boruka Sound System

The roots of Kumbia Boruka are to be found in Monterrey, the cumbia capital of Mexico and the place where Hernan Cortés, the accordion player and band leader, grew up in the eighties. He didn’t only learn to play the accordion from the living legend of Mexican cumbia, Celso Piña, but he was also the percussionist in the band of Celso Piña during long international tours. Together with Bob Sikou, Cortés started Kumbia Boruka. Besides their own contemporary and festive compositions, the band knows how to bring new flavours to classic cumbias from the sixties, mixing it with influences from reggae, dub, African music and rock, psychedelic electric guitar melodies, an extensive rhythm section and powerful and exciting brass arrangements. The Peruvian cumbia, called chicha, is not forgotten either. The result is a hybrid cumbia, nueva cumbia, with fierce Latin energy that will blow yourmind! It’s party time!

It’s through the Groove that the Lehmanns Brothers want to showcase their music. “Jazzy” chords jive with Hip Hop to create an exquisite and unique melody. The Lehmanns Brothers play a music that is controlled, sensitive and promising. Combine that with an electric energy and you get an idea of how special a concert can be. With an explosive rhythm, a unique vocal signature marked by notes of electric brass, they pay homage at the revolutionary temples of music that has seen the birth of Jazz and Funk, and their more recent incarnations of Rap and Neo Soul. Their concerts make you dance. They make you escape. Each concert is a signature, and as emotionally intensive as their first concert. It is difficult not to be captivated.

Lekhfa is the brainchild of Maryam Saleh, Maurice Louca and Tamer Abu Ghazaleh, three legendary musicians who came of age in 1990s Cairo. Decades later, each having paved their way through the alternative Arabic music scene, they united to give birth to an off-kilter sound of beats, grit and resistance. The Cairo delegates, teetering on the edges of Egyptian shaabi, electro-shaabi, pop and psychedelia, are backed by anything from oud and buzuq lute to slide guitars, drums, beat loops and electronica. A rapturous combination of extraordinary musical talent and creativity, their stunning works intertwine around the dystopian poems of their contemporary Mido Zoheir, one of the most celebrated Egyptian poets of their generation.

We got completely hooked with these crazy talented cats after we saw one of Lokomoko's first shows ever at an art space down in Hamburg, Germany. Talking Heads-y eclecticism. Ethereal omnipresence. Reminiscent of Parenthetical Girls guided by a Tom Verlainesque unsteady timber that Mario might not even know he owns. Picture them at CBGB's if 1977 was next year. You'll be losing your shit.

Tiger Tiger

Tricky production, sensitive songwriting, modern soundscapes. The producer, composer and singer Tiger Tiger makes subconscious music. She starts with the surface of externalities, artificiality and then she begins her intimate monologue about her identity. She drives it far, through her neo-psychedelic sound space, inventing herself as fiction and utopia for a new world. Live, Tiger Tiger is a band of three other women. Together they experiment with synths, natural impulses, the vocoder, bass and flutes. I want you to immerse yourself with the Tiger Tiger sound experience. Will you join me?

With broken beats, unique guitar playing, fat bass and fresh synthesized sounds, the fingers integrate the messy intensity of rock music with the ecstasy of electronic raves, creating a thick, unrelenting sound trip. An emerging festival favorite both in their home base of Israel and abroad, their live act is a mind blowing experience of futuristic sounds and visuals, leaving the sweaty fans begging for more.

Todeskommando Atomsturm


TootArd (Arabic for Strawberries) is a “mountain rock reggae” band from the majestic mountainside village of Majdal Shams in the Occupied Syrian Golan Heights. Their “Laissez Passer” documents say their identities are “Undefined” but they are sure that music will lead them. Singing in Arabic and gliding across the borders of West African, Saharan, Caribbean grooves and classical Arabic modalities, they will make every audience laugh, dance, smile, ask questions, and imagine the many possibilities for a better future...




The notion of ubiquity referring to their Name is mirrored in the aesthetics confrontation, an hybridisation of telluric rock Music and a modern electronic production. This alchemy results in a strong, violent and tribal music, like an outlet, a hopeful struggle, inspired by Digital Mystikz as well as Suuns, Liars. A shout that cannot be uttered as is, out of modesty, out of a need for is transformation, a shout that covers the whole music and creates a constant tension, a willingness for burning moments and a raw sincerity.

Von Wegen Lisbeth

Take five guys from Berlin, puree and stir them in a small basement together. At 180 degrees the result is a fairly thick pastry. It has a slight Indie smell, tastes a bit of Casio Keyboard, and with an aftertaste of scratching guitars and a stomping beat it makes for an uneasy stomach - and somewhere between glockenspiel and steel drum there is still room for lyrics. Lyrics about Lina. Lyrics about love. Lyrics about your sister. Lyrics about you! Von Wegen Lisbeth are always on the move and make the concert your local gymnastics club competition.

Wolf Mountains

Reinhold Emerson (Mosquito Ego), Kevin Kuhn (Die Nerven, Karies) and Thomas Zehnle (All Diese Gewalt, Levin Goes Lightly), the three Stuttgart natives that come together to form the mighty Wolf Mountains, appear on the surface to be super chilled dudes, exuding an aire of living on the edge of eternal boredom. Their new LP „Superheavvy“ opens in a style attesting to this, lulling you to sleep like a newborn baby in it’s mothers arms, only to be violently awakened by what feels like the squeal of circular saw.

Yasmine Hamdan

It’s hard to find the right words to describe this woman’s oeuvre. Yasmine Hamdam is a Lebanese singer, songwriter and actress - but these labels don’t do this icon of Arab underground music any justice. In her time she has lived in over 12 countries and developed the unique skill of artfully blending Arab folk music with Western pop. Maybe this unusual musical symbiosis is what led to her first band Soapkills being described as „the first indie-band of the Middle East“. And despite maintaining her signature style through the years and weaving traditional elements into her songs, Yasmines work for widely popular movies like „Only Lovers Left Alive“ show her global appeal. This is because she possesses the unusual gift of transforming foreign lyrics into a universal language. But still, all these words fail to convey the ecstatic feeling of standing in the first row at one of Yasmine Hamadams concerts.



Alex and Malte started their musical journey in the summer of 2014. In the past years a strong friendship evolved between the two as well as an intensive musical project. In their music they use the instruments handpan and didgeridoo and create dynamically improvised sounds - contemplative and sensuous flowing into animating rhythms. In their concerts they are trying to create an atmosphere of total relaxation and inspiration in which people can just follow their mind dreams. Eyes shut - soul alive.

Young Boys Menting

It sounds immediate and powerful when the three musicians of Young Boys Menting with their individual, musical skills become an idiophone. After almost ten years of interplay in various jazz formations, Florian Krause (drums), Michael Gudenkauf (double bass) and Hanno Menting (guitar) now present a trio that can add new facets to contemporary jazz. There is an intelligent understanding to fluently cross genre boundaries. A musical mixture with many corners and edges certainly, which oscillates on closer inspection in extraordinary shapes and colors.
