The music boat “Spreeprinzessin“ will, as in past years, be on the canal for this special weekend offering concerts dealing with this year’s theme as a “Dancing Shadows“ programme. Six acts, bands and individual artists invite audiences on an adventure in the diverse Berlin’s pop music scene. This part of the programme begins with a contribution, that Saturday, by the Danish band Mono Mono offering a mix of relaxing sounds using sampling, vocals and a saxophone. Another contribution comes from a singer known as ENEST who enthuses audiences with her mix of electronic and jazzy pop. Saturday will be rounded off by a concert by Ducks!. Then, that Sunday, a German-Norwegian band called Apples in Space will play their mixture of punk and rock. They’ll be followed in the programme by a Berlin-based singer/songwriter, Flonske at the guitar. BIMM (the British Irish Modern Music Institute) will present two concerts by Polish composer/singer MINt featuring a combination of electronic music, R & B, hip-hop and jazz.
The Spreeprinzessin will depart from the quai at Wildenbruchplatz on the hour for 45-minute-long trips featuring a single act. Tickets for the boat trip can be purchased, for 2 € from that Saturday at 1 pm, directly before boarding.
In co-operation with Reederei Riedel, BIMM (British Irish Modern Music Institute) and Noisy Store, with support from Musicboard Berlin GmbH

48 Stunden Neukölln is a forum for artistic projects in a wide range of disciplines, representing the gamut of production in the city. The festival presents and supports the arts while also contributing to societal debate about issues that have an effect on all of us. Ever since the festival was established in 1999, 48 Stunden Neukölln has gone from strength to strength to become the city’s largest independent festival of the arts. Works that have been created for the event have had an impact far beyond the borders of the district and support long-lasting interaction with the international arts scene.
In 2017, 48 Stunden Neukölln has, once again been awarded the EFFE Label (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) the accolade of “Europe’s finest festivals”.
