Time to catch some great shows! So keep your eyes open and don’t miss out on your concert favourites! Nothing would come in handier than a couple of recommendations, right?
On a regular basis we’ll be presenting the finest acts touring their way through German clubs. And we’re giving away tickets on Facebook for each and every tour we present – so stay tuned!
When Leipzig musician Florian Sievers sings of a “Goldene Zukunft” (Golden Future) the listener quickly forgets all the stuff currently going on in politics, life, and the rest of the world. After playing support shows for Kettcar and Element Of Crime, Sievers released his debut album this past August. Also titled “Goldene Zukunft”, it’s easily one of the most beautiful German indie-pop albums of the year. Sievers brought his one-man project to Reeperbahn Festival in September, performing a couple of the album’s songs at Grosse Freiheit. We’re now looking forward to welcoming him to the German clubs listed below – so come warm up with Das Paradies during the chilly days of early December!

Zeal & Ardor
You’re not going to find a lot of bands that blend black metal, hip hop, jazz, gospel, and soul as brilliantly as Switzerland’s Zeal & Ardor, led by frontman Manuel Gagneux. They achieved their international breakthrough with the title track from their last album, “Devil Is Fine” – and in 2017 they made a stop at Reeperbahn Festival. “Stranger Fruit”, their new album, released in June of this year, features a no less grim messenger emerging from the underworld – the band’s definitely not done with the devil. Gagneux’s stories can be sinister, referencing occult literature, demons and satanic rituals. In November, the band will be joined on tour by Finnish noise rockers Nyos. So, if you like it dark...check out our Facebook starting 2 November for a chance to win 1x2 guest list spots per city.

Albin Lee Meldau
Swedish-born singer-songwriter Albin Lee Meldau has a voice that enchants listeners, whether they’re audience members at gigs or jury members for the ANCHOR – Reeperbahn Festival International Music Award, which Meldau won in 2016. After leaving the soul band Magnolia, Meldau went his own way, developing his sound and refining his guitar-playing. With songs like “The Weight Is Gone” and “Lou Lou” he conquered the hearts of concertgoers at the 2016 Reeperbahn Festival. He’s now doing his first headline tour in Germany.

The Portland, Oregon-based eleven-member indie-rock band Typhoon, centered around mastermind Kyle Morton, released “Offerings”, their fourth album, in January of this year. And now they’re coming to Germany – for the first time – bringing their new record and their guitar-driven-meets-classical-orchestral sound to three German cities. A musical spectacle in the stylistic sphere of Arcade Fire, Explosions in the Sky, and Portugal. The Man. Morton’s vocals take listeners along on a lyrical excursion through sombre worlds and splendid soundscapes. Join us on this journey!

To Kill A King
For nine years now, the five guys from London-based To Kill A King have been touring together, playing stages across the world. In 2018, they released “The Spiritual Dark Age”, their third album. But there’s no leaning on the good old days here – rather, they’ve taken things a step further, going beyond their previous albums and EPs. The band’s sound is more folk-rocky on “The Spiritual Dark Age” than on their self-titled predecessor. When they played the 2017 Reeperbahn Festival they performed only a smattering of songs from their new record – but now, for the album tour, they’ve got plenty of danceable tunes. So hit the dance floor at one of To Kill A King’s four concerts in Germany in March!

Iron & Wine
Iron & Wine doesn’t need a lot of introduction. He’s an old hand in the singer-songwriter business. In 2017, the American released “Beast Epic”, his thirteenth album. Like its predecessors, it’s the perfect soundtrack for rainy days on the sofa in front of the fireplace. With his voice, Sam Beam, the man behind Iron & Wine, generates a cosiness and warmth – and at live venues, too, as his years of performing have demonstrated.

30.01.2018 - Köln, Gloria-Theater

With his voice, he already enchanted the Reeperbahn Festival audience in 2017. In January Dermot Kennedy will be back to Germany, bringing along his debut EP “Doves & Ravens”, published this year, which puts him in one level with singer songwriters such as Bon Iver, James Blake or James Vincent McMorrow. We are looking forward to seeing one of this year’s most promising talents again – Dermot Kennedy!
