I myself had the pleasure to be there last Saturday and to catch some impressions for you :-)
The violin group from the Musikschule Mühldorf really rocked the place (just at the main entrance of the famous St Lawrence Church). They performed square dance songs as well as traditional Irish pieces so that , not just me, but also the crowd were absolutely amazed!
The lads from Master Mint were totally rocking one of the city's roofed shopping passages with their own minty fresh songs as well as some cover pieces - I think they were playing Lenny Kravitz' "Fly away" for over 10 mins and everyone was joining the singalong - yeah yeah yeah!
Crosswind are a four German lovers of Irish music and their performance of the trad reels and jigs as well as the smooth ballads was just perfect. They were playing on one of the major stages of the festival and I can just highly recommend you give them a listen at the link above!
Then there was Pfatze from Austia - a talented solo artist with a musical style which needs getting used to ;-) Well, yes, look at his "instrument" and I guess you get the picture! Anyhow, it was just funny seeing him perform! Definitely the funniest and rarest act I've seen that day and a pity I could not find him online.
Another great band are Feel Free from Nuremberg - there arrangements of and passion for melodic rock were reflected you every tune they played - groovin'!
Ted's Roadhouse Gang was there to itch your dancing feet.
The Italian solo singer-songwriter Giovanni Bassano could win the crowd with his lovely tunes.
And of course: the hen party (no, not a band!) - Bardentreffen is definitely a terrific place for hen and stag parties, but these girls were just THE coolest hen party on that day and were rocking the place all over :-)
Another accoustic blues, rock and folk band performing were enDANGERed Species from Nuremberg/New York.
Followed by another act on one of the main stages: Shaky Foundation from Würzburg. Wow, what a great synthie band! Their style can be described as indie dream pop with a lot of synths and a lot of soul. I was impressed by their talent which made them easily spark the masses - not with loads of funky colours and blingbling, but with their prowess! Highly recommended!
In Kaiserstraße two more lovely accoustic acts were waiting for everone interested in quality music from truly musical souls :-) Leinwand were just brilliant and pure fun with their German thoughtful, sometimes even philosophic songs.
Lastly some of my good friends from My Perfect Mistake (you also know them from here) performed some of their own songs as well as cover songs as an accoustic trio on the festival. Punk rock songs in accoustic form?? Yes, it is possible! And you know what? This sounds surprisingly awesome!
Thanks for reading guys! Make sure to support the bands above with your likes, shares and comments and mostly with buying and listenig to their music :-)
