Anyone here planning on going to this years festival at Funkhaus?
This is a very special event that first went down in 2016. It is curated and organized by the people at Michelberger hotel, Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner ++ amongst others (correct me if I miss something here). The concept is that the artists (musicians, dancers, composers, video/multi media) meet up at wonderful Funkhaus in Berlin to create, play, jam and collaborate for a week - then we are invited to experience two days of the magic. I attended the first year which was one of the most special events ever. Funkhaus is such a fantastic venue! And the idea that there’s really no headliners or announced artists or bands is so freeing. That first time all we got was a list of all the names (then 80). As far as I’m concerned we won’t get the names this time around, just that there will be 120 collaborators (IIRC).
Anyways - highly recommended!
Here’s a video from Saal1 from 2016:
