Immergut Festival 2014

People@Immergut Festival

An already impressive line-up combining heavy guitar riffs, delicate singer-songwriter pop, a little bit of electronica and even some literature: the 15th Immergut Festival taking place at Neustrelitz in late May is sure to be the first festival highlight of the year. We‘re introducing some of our favorite bands and musicians already confirmed to play the festival. But first of all, we have the new video teaser for Immergut 2014 right here for you:

One of the bands we‘re very much looking forward to see is Future Islands. Their imaginative music between melancholy and dancefloor is often reminiscent of Joy Division. With his gravel voice, singer Samuel T. Herring  sounds like he‘s experienced pretty much everything that fits into a life-span. At Immergut, the band will present their fourth studio album “Singles”, which was released in March.

Real Estate have also released a new album recently. The new record is called “Atlas” and consistently continues the sound of their debut album. The band‘s characteristic sound is guitar-based feel-good music that makes you want to lean back and relax. Check out their official video for “Talking Backwards”:

For the third time already, Hundreds from Hamburg will play at Immergut. Their dreamy, restrained music leaves a lot of room for singer Eva Milner‘s voice, which is the band‘s special trademark.

FM Belfast from Iceland are quite the opposite: they make almost hyperactive music with childishly naive vocals and a certain Disco vibe. Their playful synth sound is just like their shows – lively and exciting.

The sound of Lucy Rose is as sweet as her name. Her heartwarming singer-songwriter pop relies on little more than her acoustic guitar and her tender voice. Her endearing, melodic and almost weightless sound even earned her a collaboration with Bombay Bicycle Club. At this year‘s Immergut she will prove that she doesn‘t need a big name to back her up in order to convince the festival audience. Have a look at her song “Middle of the Bed” here:

Apart from loads of great music there will also be some reading going on at Immergut. Element of Crime singer Sven Regener will read from his new novel “Magical Mystery oder: die Rückkehr des Karl Schmidt” in which a bunch of crazy techno fans travel all across Germany. Also, Intro editor Felix Scharlau will introduce his debut novel “Fünfhunderteins” about a DJ trying to break a world record.

Other artists confirmed for the 15th Immergut Festival are Cloud Nothings, Slut, Judith Holofernes, Rah Rah, Feine Sahne Fischfilet, Oum Shatt, Die! Die! Die!, Mozes and the Firstborn, and Justus Köhncke.

All further information as well as tickets for 55€ plus 5€ garbage deposit and 3€ booking fee can of course be found at Immergut‘s website. Make sure to read the texts about the artists, as they are very special and almost poetic at times. See you at Immergut!
