23. – 24.02.2024 Bandstand
The HELLERAU music format Bandstand is an annual festival in February for the local band scene and has become a fixed date for music fans from Dresden and the surrounding area. And so in 2024 once again: clear the stage for Bandstand!
Fri 23.02. LAUT MUSIKVIDEOS GUCKEN - Saxony Edition
From 18:00 h, WIR GESTALTEN DRESDEN, KREATIVES SACHSEN and POP IMPULS invite you to the Meetup: Music and Film in Saxony in the Dalcroze Hall. As part of the free moderated network meeting, music and film makers from Saxony can come together to discuss production conditions, filming locations and forge helpful contacts.
Starting at 20:00 h, Anika Jankowski will host the event LAUT MUSIKVIDEOS GUCKEN (Watching Music Videos Out loud) – Saxony Edition on the Main Stage. Presented on a big screen and with a booming bass, up to 20 videos of all genres will be shown, which were previously selected by a jury out of all the Open Call submissions. With performances by rapper Joca and Tinted House and the continuous walk-in installation POPISTERROR.
Sat 24.02. Bandstand concert evening
On Saturday afternoon, it’s a good idea to stock up generously on cake and lemonade, then pack up all the kids and start swinging all your dancing limbs with Radio Möhre at 17:00 h!
The concerts then start at 19:00 h:
Far Beyond is a metal band from Dresden that has been making a name for itself on the city’s stages for some time now, creating hard walls of sound. Betti Laila and Alexander Galani is a singer-songwriter duo that presents a mix of styles from indie, alternative and harmonic to slightly psychedelic songs on guitar, piano and vocals. Hangry play feminist punk rock, while Oh Nico transforms the stage into a polyphonic orchestra as a one-man band. Dry Skin (formerly I’m Your Stalker) are a four-piece synth-pop-wave ensemble and raise the Korg and Roland high into the stratosphere. In The Shna, on the other hand, two-part vocals meet drums and bass – sounds like grunge, indie, pop, riot grrl and some of their own inventions. Alina Dalsegno and band are inspired by the rocking 60s and seek the same boundless freedom in music and art. And somewhere between ambient jazz and psychedelic, progressive krautrock, an entire landscape wanders across the stage: Hokke Ten Hokke.
In addition to these outstanding musical moments, Max Rademann brings gold pieces from his record collection and places musical delicacies on the turntable while he portrays his listeners. A Wishlist of the very select kind. More interested in animated films? Jens Rosemann is happy to show them and draw the cineastes’ emotions as a souvenir to take home. With the help of the cards, Josef Panda, self-proclaimed charlatan and light pioneer, provides support with life’s big and small questions. His clairvoyant statements are based on the reading of cards from a sophisticated deck of hand-picked stock photos – Trash Tarot can help you tread the path of confidence. However, all statements are without guarantee. POPISTERROR, on the other hand, comes as a cheerful mishmash, almost like a flashy snapshot of the weird present – it is possible to gallop immersively towards pop.
In the constant trot through the house in search of new music and further attractions, the distribution point for shots is clearly visible and yet hidden in the ticket booth
More information about the bands will be shared in good time via our social media channels and our Telegram channel News from HELL.
