After already two very successfull festival editions in Berlin and London earlier this year, the Denovali Swingfest is returning back to its home edition in the city Of Essen/Germany with a 4-day-festival in the first weekend of October 2014.
Denovali Swingfest 2014 features BEN FROST, JAMES HOLDEN, THEE SILVER MT. ZION MEMORIAL ORCHESTRA, OVAL, THE HAXAN CLOAK, DEMDIKE STARE, HAUSCHKA, BOHREN UND DER CLUB OF GORE, GREG HAINES, RAFAEL ANTON IRRISARI and more.
Denovali is more than happy to share the full Line-Up of the 2014 Swingfest Essen edition with you. Mainly conceived as a label festival, Denovali has invited guest musicians, who represent their musical context and influence, right from the beginning of the first festival in 2007.
Not limited to one musical genre, Denovali Swingfest offers a diverse range of music styles from darker experimental sounds, ambient, drone, indie and electronica to darkjazz, jazz or piano and string driven modern compositions.
The festival again takes place on 4 days (October 2nd until October 5th 2014) at the
wonderful WeststadtHalle. This year’s edition will feature 21 artists on the regular days and a piano pre-event with 2 artists on Thursday October 2nd.
Their sets will as always be as long as a proper club concert (around an hour). The ticket preorder has already started. A free festival download sampler is planned to be available a couple of weeks before the festival starts.
