Fasten your seatbelts: already in its fourth year running, A L’ARME! FESTIVAL invites all to an interdisciplinary, balancing act between avant-garde jazz, folk, drone, dark ambient, avant-garde pop and noise – and most of all, to an overarching artistic exploration of inner spatial experiences.
Beginning with the opening premiere at Berghain all the way to the long Saturday night at RADIALSYSTEM V, over the span of four days more than fifty international artists will grace the stage.
From E-Bass virtuoso Massimo Pupillo, the Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and punk-jazz veteran Andy Moor, to newcomer saxophonist Anna Högberg and renowned guests such as Free Jazz legend Peter Brötzmann, all the way to celebrated acts like the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Hans Unstern or the Irish avant-garde folk ensemble Fovea Hex.
Musicians from around the world pack together the tried and tested radicality, quality and energy of the festival into concerts and multimedia performances. As part of the summery atmosphere the Piechas at RADIALSYSTEM V will be serving slow food BBQ on the Spree terrace Thursday to Saturday starting at 6:00 p.m.
