Certainly one of the finest festivals in existence, Klangbad takes place again this weekend with a line-up as diverse and interesting as ever including: Cluster, Golden Disko Ship, Jaki Liebezeit, Gustav, Jimi Tenor, Robert Lippok, A Hawk & A Hacksaw and many more.
[audio:Gustav – abgesang.mp3]There are mainly 2 kinds of music festivals: average ones and adventurous ones. The former present music, which everyone already knows. The other has its finger on the pulse of time and its ears open.
They point out up-to-date trends, present upcoming musicians and bands, make new musical experiences and discoveries possible. The Klangbad festival at Scheer near Sigmaringen, South Germany, certainly belongs to this category and is the real festival insider’s tip for open ears. For 3 years now, the small village of Scheer has been experiencing a 3-day metamorphosis every summer.
The sleepy, seemingly pittoresque village invites you on a musically provocative, avantgarde and innovative journey, packed with surprises, crossing various genres.
Far away from the nowadays usual chart monotony and the artistic mainstreams, international artists meet local bands, which indeed differ in style, popularity and stage experience, but comply anyhow in one concise criterion: The love to authentic, expressive music.
Audience and artists become parts of a musical biosphere, and it is hard to find anything comparable in today’s profit-oriented event area.
Within the shortest time, a network of volunteers interested in culture and music, has formed. Only through the enthusiastic work of artists and workers, who are committed to the idea, is such an individual and independent project able to arise and to take place annually.
