Cologne: a diversified long weekend
- Date published
Beside such artists as Thurston Moore, James Pants, High Places, Jacques Palminger, or Gary War some new names appear on the bill. From the US the Stepkids come around to present their touching mix of psychedelic Funk and HipHop. Also the charming French chanteuse Françoiz Breut enters the stage of the old landmarked UFA Filmpalast cinema in Cologne. All artists come along to celebrate the first Week-End festival - a three day happening with peaceful performances in the name of contemporary Pop, Postpunk, Electronica, Techno, House, and other variations of music with an edge. If the line-up please you be aware: all concerts are held in a theaterstyle seating arrangement and are strictly limited to 500 visitors per day.
After the shows the show continues because each night the cinema crush room transforms into a club. Here DJs like Kompakt head honcho Michael Mayer or the notorious Scottish border crossers Optimo Wilkes/Twitch spin records till sunrise. Furthermore screenings of old movie classics upgrade the Festival during daytime with rare to see cinema art.
