D/B Presents: Down By The River IV Festival @ Kater Holzig Berlin | Saturday, 21.07.2012

The Down by the River Festival will take place for the fourth time this year!

Freaks, fans and familiar faces are going to meet on Saturday, July 21st, at Berlin’s Kater Holzig.

Down by the river, straight in the heart of Berlin, in a relaxed atmosphere, you’ll encounter sounds ranging from the folk-y to the kraut-y – all a little quirky and weird, as always of course.

The Wave Pictures | I Love You Like A Madman

The summer festival, which takes places on one day, is organized by the concert series and booking team “Fourtrack on Stage” and the agency “amSTARt”. Like every year, they have invited newcomers from the Berlin music scene and old friends from all over the world.

If the sun is shining the festival will be a true open air one! On the little stage, “Fourtrack am Fluss,” you’ll get to see newcomers playing short sets. Right by the river, a big open air stage will see the main program.

Later at the evening the show will move indoors – to the so-called “Rummelplatz” where some bands will play to make you dance before the festival DJs will welcome the dusk!
