Do true romantics still exist in these severe and cynical times? The Swiss Larissa Iceglass and the Brit William Maybelline could be the answer to this question. With their dark wave band project Lebanon Hanover, they give the alienated world the cold shoulder. Fascinated by the beauty of Art Nouveau aesthetics, the coasts of Great Britain, nocturnal forests, and the urbanity of Berlin, this duo creates a pulsating sound of synths, deep basslines, and programmed rhythms. Singer Larissa Iceglass’s delicate yet haunting vocals penetrate the ear and catapult the listener to a place between nostalgia and reality. An escape from everyday life. An ode to sadness. With this, Lebanon Hanover proves: »Sadness Is Rebellion.«

Suddenly it was there, the Neue Neue Deutsche Welle. It was only three years ago that Edwin Rosen decided to write lyrics in German and rely on drum computers and synthesizers. In 2020, »leichter/kälter« appeared on the Internet without any announcement or promotion. Even before his first EP was released, Edwin Rosen had become the pioneer of a new musical movement. His sound combines spherical synthesizers and an unwavering beat – perfected by heartwarming guitar melodies and Edwin’s distinctive voice. Punk, post-punk and new wave define his style, poetry and everyday observations define his lyrics. Growing up in Stuttgart, Edwin’s life consisted of two components: In the evenings he attended sweaty hardcore and pop-punk shows in the local Keller Klub, while during the day he explored his own city and the surrounding area on his skateboard. His father’s record collection did the rest.

In 2023, Edwin Rosen finally catapulted himself back into people’s ears and onto the country’s biggest stages with new songs.

With delicate brushstrokes of his sonic palette, wavvyboi tries to paint a canvas of emotions, once inspired by his father’s vinyls – from Nirvana to Jimi Hendrix and many legendary rock guitarists – until he picked up the guitar himself. He developed his own style as he explored the instrument, trying to figure out how to translate his emotionality into music. In the meantime he has found his place between melancholy, fantasy and 90s grunge. Fitting, because wavvyboi loves tragedy and pathos. Born in Liechtenstein, he describes himself as a »restless troubadour armed with a heavy guitar that provides a cathartic balance to his fragility«. Wavvyboi’s delicate voice is the ray of hope in his otherwise dark sound. It’s a contrast that, since 2018, has gathered a passionate fan base around him, guaranteeing packed concert halls.

As the son of Turkish parents and migrant workers, he is still where he grew up – in his hometown of Moabit. He has been writing lyrics for ten years and transforming them into anti-capitalist German rap for almost two years. He criticizes the white German majority society – without pointing a finger, but with a lot of anger in his belly. The sound is trappy and modern. New Wave. On his EP »Gast«, he transforms the voices of his generation into music, between hope, pain, and false promises of hospitality. Apsilon represents the defiance of a young generation within a dysfunctional society and, simultaneously, shows the will to change something – socially and in music.

Influenced by D’Angelo, Radiohead and John Frusciante, he uses his soft voice to bring warmth to the music he creates. Puma Blue’s album, ‘Holy Waters’, reflects his innermost thoughts, including his attempt to make peace with death. He not only faces personal challenges but also takes a significant step forward by participating in a full band production.

This duo has been conquering the world of electronic music for several years now: Sonar, Burning Man, Primavera Sound, Clockenflap and Fuji Rock are just a few of the venues where these two Austrians have been a hit. Their latest album ‘Too’ is an angry, tender, vulnerable and determined story about a generation’s search for life. The songs explore extremes in concept, content and sound.

Dirk von Lowtzow’s second book was published in March 2023 by Kiepenheuer & Witsch.

The book, entitled »Ich tauche auf«, is a diary novel about a year in the life of the musician. »It is also a portrait of the mood of a country during a pandemic, an odyssey of everyday life between doubts, fears, hope and love, and an account of the making of the Tocotronic album «Nie wieder Krieg” (engl. Never again war).

Dirk von Lowtzow will present the book in selected cities. He will have his acoustic guitar with him to intersperse the reading with Tocotronic songs from 30 years of band history.

For the pre-session with ÄTNA and Maeckes there is an extra ticket contingent only for the 3rd of May. These tickets are also available via our shop (see menu: Tickets).

All festival tickets are also valid for all pre-sessions (first come, first serve).

ÄTNA is more than just a pop duo. Inéz and Demian Kappenstein from Dresden fuse playful synths with organic bass, eclectic fashion with avant-garde video art. Their debut album ‘Made by Desiree’ wrote a new chapter in German pop history and brought about impressive collaborations with Martin Kohlstedt, Marteria, MEUTE and Solomon. Impressive not because of the collaborators, but because ÄTNA’s signature remains unmistakable at all times, while stylistically they are all too happy to walk a fine line between musical styles.

ÄTNA have been nominated for numerous awards and in 2020 they won the international Anchor Award at Hamburg’s Reeperbahn Festival. They are rightly regarded as a thrilling live act. This is evidenced by their appearances at major festivals, concerts in half of Europe and sold-out shows throughout the German-speaking world.

Soffie is a singer and producer who accompanies her music with expressive synthesizers, dynamic arrangements, and perfectly timed choirs. Her lyrics are self-ironic and cynical, dealing with topics such as the meaning of back pain, mansplaining, and the great mystery of self-discovery. Her single ‘Rosenkohl’ (meaning ‘Brussels sprouts’ in English) explores the depressing feeling of outgrowing one’s own home, a feeling that many people in their mid-20s can relate to. She creates complex compositions centred around her remarkable voice. Her music is influenced by Stromae, Lorde, and life itself.

Sextile are »ready to rage« on the About Pop stage. Emerging from the underground scene in Los Angeles in 2015, this band powerhouse knows how to sweep the audience off their feet. No wonder, given their driving sound mix of post-punk and electronic rock. Following the release of their debut album and another EP, Sextile took a break in October 2019 after the tragic death of a band member. In 2023, they beamed themselves back to the surface. Their album »Push«, released in September, lives up to its name. Thanks to the (even) higher BPMS, this record is a real serotonin booster that illuminates the difference between dance music, gabber, and trans.

What paths can you take to express what’s inside you? The 26-year-old singer-songwriter Rosa Anschütz packs her everyday observations and questions into poetic and poignant lyrics. Prose that sticks with you thanks to Rosa’s unforgettable voice. Admonishing, haunting, wafting. The utterly analog composition of the album »Interior«, announced for winter 2024, gives her voice the leading role on a journey through various genres and themes such as heartbreak, family dramas, beauty, and spirituality. »I’ve been losing the faith to see«, sings the artist on the track »By Gaining Many Somethings«. A melancholy, warming search between reflection and observation – inside and out.

»It’s as easy as one, two, three, four.« Maeckes is one of the most influential rappers, songwriters and music innovators of our time. He has already cyphered in the youth center, has a band (the Orsons) and a band (the Katastrophen) with which he has torn up festivals, clubs and halls and staged his own operas. And then he constantly reinvents himself with his almost legendary guitar concerts.

Maeckes has been writing songs for more than ten years – sometimes abysmal and sometimes silly, sometimes mega-meta and sometimes of utterly disarming vulnerability. Most of the time, his music is all of these things at once.

In March 2024, the »guitar album« will be released, the essence of more than a decade of

Maeckes’ work. Songs like little plays, an album full of surprises, twists and goosebumps. Of course, there will also be plenty of opportunities to see him live!

Their music has nothing to do with calm, but rather with therapy in the form of an idiosyncratic combination of catchy melodies, hyper-realistic lyrics and laconic performances. Since their debut single in 2019, the Finnish duo has been a staple in the Finnish charts. In 2024, they will finally embark on a major tour across Europe.

Los Bitchos are an instrumental epic between various Latin American influences and pan-continental experiments in surf and psych-pop. With their retro-futuristic blend of Peruvian chicha, Argentinian cumbia and anatomical rock, the four Londoners take us on a journey through their imaginative sound creations.

They say that partying is the glue that holds Los Bitchos together – and of course their dedication to music. They are used to drinking Mac DeMarco under the table, having supported him and King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard on tour. Serra Petale (guitar), Agustina Ruiz (keytar), Josefine Jonsson (bass) and Nic Crawshaw (drums) come from different parts of the world and have found a common motto for their debut album: »Let the festivities begin!«

Berlin musician Charlotte Brandi knows: »Cultural renewal is not born out of comfort.« With her second studio album, »An den Alptraum«, released in 2023, she released her first German-language long-player and work produced entirely with FLINTA’s involvement. For Brandi, this was a conscious decision for the overdue paradigm shift in the music world. Consistent feminist process optimization. She sings about the simultaneity of things. Her lyrics deal with men, women, fear, money, death, and the contribution to the revolution. Brandi presents a diverse musical spectrum in her songs, from a capella choirs to art-pop anthems with a scratchy voice. Serious, razor-sharp, and self-deprecating, the singer addresses current social discourses and proves her ability to capture musically and lyrically what is otherwise difficult to grasp.

»If you don’t like the index finger, you must put up with the middle finger.« The duo Augn make cabaret-style spoken word post-punk and wear stocking masks, and even this attempt at an accurate band description will likely make them shrug their shoulders in disdain. The fact is, Augn is painfully honest. They don’t want to please anyone; they criticize everyone: Beyoncé, Falco, the Berlin hipster bubble, students, the Junge Union. It’s criticism of social criticism. The nasty irony of the ever-ironic digital zeitgeist. Unpleasant as shit. That’s what songs like »Deutschrap ist tot«, »Falcos Tochter« and »Vintage« are supposed to be. Sophisticated, without claiming to live up to any expectations. That’s what concertgoers have to put up with.

Lira Mondal roars menacingly into a bright future. Caufield Schnug pounds the drums and manifests the good news in our heads: what the two of them deliver as Sweeping Promises on their second album ‘Good Living Is Coming For You’ is thunderous bedroom punk that takes us deep into the New York underground of the early 2000s.

After their debut album »Hungry For A Way Out«, recorded in 2019, which unintentionally became the soundtrack to a pandemic, Sweeping Promises position themselves between the tough attitude of the Dresden Dolls and the brazenness of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs with their second album. The duo’s dynamism is no accident. Formed by chance in Arkansas ten years ago, they have been rehearsing tirelessly ever since to fuse Mondal’s wild energy on vocals and bass and Schnug’s technical finesse on guitar and drums into an unmistakable sound. Always in DIY style, of course.

The world is getting colder, but Cologne’s COMA are bringing some warmth into our lives. COMA’s melodic innovations between indie and electronica have always been incredibly accessible, not shying away from hooks or emotion, expanding the concept of what club music can be from album to album. COMA fuse electronic beats with perfectly timed indie, rich in melody and melancholy, perfect for the dancefloor. The two indie-loving childhood friends’ early releases struck a chord in Cologne and its electrophile microcosm. COMA’s sound, characterised by guitars and analogue synthesizers, exotic in a world of laptops and controllers, has taken them to clubs on almost every continent.

Georg Conrad and Marius Bubat may have their roots firmly planted in Cologne’s storied club scene, but their effervescent, groovy vibe blurs boundaries and draws inspiration from global legends such as The Whitest Boy Alive, Radiohead and Blur.

The native Finn and Athenian-by-choice sees his latest album as a »collection of songs from a specific time period, without any attempt to tie them together«. A double album of elemental pop and baroque electronics, peppered with melodies and secrets – the Finn’s wildest statement to date. Kalevi’s music flows with entire universes. It can wrap us in cotton wool, but then become cool and unapproachable in the next moment.

Sofie Royer gives the term »jack of all trades« a new dimension. There is almost no artistic discipline in which the musician and composer are inactive. She sings, writes, and produces her tracks. She loves poetry and reality television from the early 1980s and is passionate about medieval performances and opera and ballet traditions in her home city of Vienna. The title of her album »Harlequin«, released in 2022, seems to combine all of these influences. Sofie Royer succeeds in creating a theatrical and musical montage of strange characters, folkloric settings, and mysterious chronologies.

The traditional music of Enji’s homeland can be clearly heard in her songs – in the vocal techniques and in the use of the Mongolian language. The result is a highly original fusion of the traditions of her homeland, jazz and bossa nova in a chamber setting. Enji grew up in a yurt in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. She now lives in Munich and released her third album »Ulaan« at the end of 2023. As one of the first students at the Goethe Music Laboratory in Ulan Bator, she discovered her passion for jazz and now creates complex wonders that fascinate with exquisite harmonies and airy layers of sound: unagitated, full of moments taken and captured from life, produced with great attention to detail.

Peter B. Mathis aka Peter The Human Boy is a self-confessed slow rocker with an audible penchant for dreamy slacker guitar lines, nostalgic lyrics, vintage synths and, last but not least, DIY spirit. The self-produced debut album »Goodbye Summer« was released in autumn 2019 as a dreamy mix of surf rock and bedroom pop and impressively demonstrates that indie artists such as Mac DeMarco, Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) and Natalie Mering (Weyes Blood) have left their mark on the multi-instrumentalist.

With the release of his second album in May 2022, Peter opens the doors of his psyche a little wider than before. Stranger’s Life is a search for identity in a changing world, characterised by shimmering synthesizers, Motown-like grooves and psychedelic guitar parts. On tour through Germany and Austria, Peter and his bandmates Erika Schweighofer, Laura Keiblinger, Patrick Stieger and Jannik Rieß present their songs as an experimental quintet that has already mangled everything from Bob Dylan to Britney Spears in its set.

23:54. A1 motorway, direction Hamburg. Rain beats against the windscreen of the Polo 86C named Agneta. Accompanied by wafting synths and spherical sounds, the Hamburg resident leads us through the depths of the night. Her deliberately fluid soundscapes create contrasts that want to merge. Between nostalgia and progressiveness, Modular is not easy to grasp: self-referential, socially critical, feminist. It captures the dark and the beautiful, the grey and the colourful, the warm and the cold, Düsseldorf and Hamburg, creating a new German-language romanticism of 80s nostalgia. In the field of tension between new wave, indie and wave pop, a unique soundscape is created in the spirit of the times.

With their debut EP »Rauschgift«, MODULAR have been on the fast track for a long time: it has already graced the cover of Spotify’s »Fresh Finds GSA«, DIFFUS’ »Neue Neue Deutsche Welle« playlist and the print cover of DAS WETTER magazine.

CULK are a special band. The Viennese group, led by Sophie Löw, manages not to turn a blind eye to the world’s great dreariness, and in their songs they address an unease that usually bubbles under the surface. After their last album »Zerstreuen über Euch«, in which CULK dealt with the socio-political inequalities between the sexes and the destructive hegemonic superiority of the patriarchy, they want to open a new chapter with their third album »Generation Maximum«: Sophie Löw’s lyrical lyrics negotiate the discrepancy between, on the one hand, supposedly having won the »birth lottery« and, on the other hand, practically standing by and watching as the world as we knew it (or perhaps only longed for it) comes to an end. Whether it’s the climate catastrophe, the electoral gains of right-wing anti-democratic parties, the widening gap between rich and poor, or just your own personal hopeless struggles in your own precarious life.

But CULK also take you by the hand. They give you a sense of hope in the dark, a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel, without making any promises. They act as companions, giving you the feeling that you are not alone in your worries: that there are others who feel powerless in the face of great adversity. Where others stick to simple black and white lyrical painting, CULK don’t take it easy in their lyrics or their music.

Deep lyrics over blurry beats: this is the new guise in which KIKI wraps herself on »Schlafen kann ich wenn ich tot bin« (engl. I can sleep when I’m dead). On her new EP, she is mercilessly honest about the darker side of life, giving a very personal insight into the deep, dark chapters of her journey to adulthood. It’s about loneliness, fear, addiction and loss. The wrong people in life in the dreary maelstrom of the big city. KIKI represents a strong woman who has been shaped by life and no longer wants to hide the scars of her past. Strength, independence and a love of the body are her signposts to a society that wants to rethink the traditional image of femininity. On stage, she not only shows her vulnerable side, but also delivers with her five-piece live band behind her. She creates an open, empowering space for all people, free from conformity and norms.

Darkness, the smell of fog fluid and a room full of people. A metallic hammer blow, a piercing scream.

Lights flood the room, two young men appear on stage. One of them is singing and wearing a crown of barbed wire. Who does he think he is? The other is psychotically pounding a piece of iron with a hammer, crazy! The next thing you feel is relentless percussion, a voice explaining the world to you anew, fused into a deep thunderstorm of sound called Organisation.

But who and what is this duo with the extravagantly polemical name?

Organisation is an electropunk project founded in Stuttgart in 2023 by Nicolas Rebmann and Noah Junker. They have been releasing their own music since the end of 2023 and are working on their debut EP for summer ’24.

Electropunk sound meets dark melancholy, nuanced noise and blasphemous breaks.

If the German music scene were a bakery, it would display many hard, old loaves of bread. These are difficult to eat, even with lots of butter. If Franz were a a kind of bread, he would be a milk roll. It is handmade, sweet and lovely, but also a sight that awakens a mother’s instinct. It is too soft to eat and very vulnerable. Let’s leave baked goods aside and focus on music. Future Franz, since his hit single ‘Raucher’, has been preparing to become the pop star of the little man. He creates dreamy, poetic three-minute guitar pop songs with a relaxed indie sound. His music is bursting with simplicity, humor, and inventiveness.

They just wanted to jam together again during the lockdown – the result is Station 17’s eleventh album, »Oui Bitte«. Quite unexpectedly, between the pool and the trout pond. The story of this band project begins in Hamburg in 1988. Isolated from the public, disabled people live together in residential groups—the idea of making music together with non-disabled people developed in residential group 17. Station 17’s ever-changing line-up has always skilfully skirted the rigid genre boundaries. Their musical spectrum ranges from heavy metal, jazz, rock, electro, and house to experimental art.

After years of a solo career, Levin Stadler breaks with the familiar. With the album »Nackt«, he transforms the solo performance of Levin goes lightly into a collaborative project. He now utilises the irritations and ambiguities of the German language to express his longing for touch, ecstasy, closeness, and noise. Levin’s literally flowery metaphors meet the undisguised brutality of early NDW bands with expansive guitars, catchy bass lines and partly casual, partly hectic drums – produced by Thomas Zehnle (Wolf Mountains, among others) and Paul Schwarz (Human Abfall, among others).

The Stuttgart band Atomic Lobster shows how lively the Stuttgart music scene is. Ella Estrella Tischa (guitar/vocals), Daniel Herrmann (bass/vocals), and Armando Bleher (drums) create a skillful fusion of grunge, soul, and trip-hop with their music. Inspired by artists such as Radiohead and PJ Harvey, they musically live out their nostalgia for the 90s without losing their desire for new sound experiments and melodies. Atomic Lobster brings this infectious sound to the About Pop stage. The trio’s debut album will also be released in May 2024.

»Influencers hate this trick«: German-language electropunk, served up in the form of a juicy slap in the face with lots of energy, lots of love, lots of anger and a bit of nonsense. Always following the Kochkraft imperative: Don’t be a dick!

With their foundation, Kochkraft and KMA invented the genre of »Neue Deutsche Kelle«. A bit »Neue Deutsche Welle«, but much harder.

Since then, they have released three EPs and the full-length »Endlich Läuse«, played their fingers to the bone at well over 200 concerts and rightly earned a reputation as a top live band. With their latest album »Alle Kinder sind tot«, Kochkraft are more consistent and political than ever. Those who dared to call KMA’s Kochkraft a »fun band« have been shockingly proven wrong, and despite all the shit in the world, they haven’t lost their sense of fun. But they haven’t lost their seriousness either.

Too fast for reggae, too much brass for rock and too varied for ska… You could go on and on about all the musical genres and pigeonholes that Grup Huub serve up. But there is absolutely no time for that, because when the five guys from Kirchheim unter Teck take the stage, movement is top priority. Drums, bass, guitar, trumpet and trombone will get even the worst dancers on the floor.

The current album, which was released in December 2021, is called »Tanzlokal« (dance hall) and, in addition to all the musical experiments, retains the tried and tested: beats that bang!

After winning several band competitions in their first year of existence, Grup Huub also proved themselves abroad in the following years with appearances at the Chiemsee Summer Festival, the Brass Wiesn in Munich and the Windsurfing World Cup on Sylt.

Born in the Turkish port city of Izmir, Güner Künier moved to northern Germany with her family in the early 1990s, swapping the warm sea for a stiff breeze. She fell in love with music at an early age, dedicated herself to her passion after graduating and moved to Berlin. In an interview with the taz, she explains: »When I first started listening to music, I liked bands like Sonic Youth, Meat Puppets or Hole, all that stuff from the eighties and nineties. That was quite unusual for a young German-Turkish girl at this time. There wasn’t really anybody like me.«

Releasing live videos, music clips, an EP and playing concert after concert, Künier released her debut album ‘Aşk’ (Turkish for ‘love’) in December 2022, laying her voice over old-school and industrial beats, accompanied by lo-fi guitars and synth sounds. Künier sings in both English and Turkish.

Vide Obscur was founded in Cologne by Julian Stetter, electronic music artist and producer, and Jakob Lebsanft, producer and multi-instrumentalist. Although both are well versed in their respective genres and have many well-known names in their production repertoire (C.A.R., Casey Spooner, Dumbo Tracks, Elisa Metz, Henry Lee, Keøma, Lord Folter, Magic Island, to name but a few), they both felt the urge to finally create something more tangible with as few mouse clicks as possible.

The two began recording a bunch of instruments over five days, without the slightest idea of where the music was going. The result was an EP called ‘1’, which skillfully blends vocal house loops, progressive rock, grunge, 90s post-rock and even some nuances of indie pop, wave and R’n’B. Sounds exciting? It’s much more!

A grab bag of K-pop and experimental art-pop that defies preconceptions with artistic sophistication. This is the band Horizontaler Gentransfer (HGT). Or to put it more succinctly: an experimental art-pop, K-punk band initiated by six artists (Mizi Lee, Seonha Park, Jerry Ahn, Yun Park, Lilian Gonzalez, Hanseo Oh) with an immigrant background in Stuttgart in May 2022.

HGT not only questions cultural norms, but also deals with explicit racist attacks in direct exchange with the audience. This transfer of feelings and experiences to the audience is the horizontal of HGT. The artists’ characters are visually complemented by self-made costumes, leaving room for a unique art performance.

Faravaz Farvardin is an exceptional singer, songwriter and musician known for her powerful voice, eclectic musical style and unwavering passion for singing and music. Originally from Iran and currently living in Germany, Faravaz presents her extraordinary talent in three languages: English, German and Farsi (Persian).

Her repertoire includes indie pop with Iranian elements and is a testament to her extensive knowledge of folk and world music styles. However, it is her profound life experiences and relentless drive for change that have made her the extraordinary artist she is today.

Her latest EP, WLF, is inspired by the Woman Life Freedom movement in Iran. It is a powerful ode to the strength and resilience of women who have risen up against the shackles of oppression. Channeling the collective frustration of Iranian women after years of daily humiliation, Faravaz hopes her music will serve as a catalyst for change in her homeland.

Soft vocals playfully combine with synth layers, guitar riffs and pumping beats. The Stuttgart band Melody La La composes songs of elusive beauty and timeless validity. Fragments seemingly taken from a David Lynch film are combined with a sure instinct for successful pop music. Gloomy and dark, fragile and vulnerable, the songs seem at first glance. But Melody La La don’t make it that easy: the band’s overriding artistic approach is reflected in repetitive parts, adorned with instruments from outside the genre, such as saxophone or kalimba. Spherical, driving and poppy. A very interesting band, far away from the usual patterns, creating their own soundtrack without fear of contact.

Phil Lob ist als DJ Stuttgarts Aushängeschild im Bereich Modern Metal & Metalcore. Als DJ in der Rock Fabrik Ludwigsburg und Augsburg, so wie dem LKA Longhorn, ist sein Leben und seine Leidenschaft seit Jahrzehnten auf den Metal ausgerichtet. Phil hat nie einen Hehl daraus gemacht, dass dieses Genre mit Blick nach vorne in die Zukunft getragen werden sollte. Klassiker im Metal haben ihre Daseinsberechtigung und sind nicht umsonst Klassiker. Phil Lob hält aber wenig von Nostalgie »Es gibt viel zu viel hochwertige und neue Musik im Bereich Metal, die entdeckt, gehört und im besten Fall im Club und in der Discothek gespielt werden sollte und somit auch an die Leute weiter gegeben werden muss. Ich höre privat keine Musik die älter ist wie 4-5 Jahre. Da hab ich das Gefühl, ich verpasse zu viel Neues.«

Mit seiner New Age Core Club Party BULLDOZER, die Phil zusammen mit DJ Kollege Timo Fielker regelmäßig im Schwarzen Keiler veranstaltet, ist das das Motto. Somit trägt auch Phil Lob bei der Aftershow Party zum About Club Festival von Abbie Falls und Beyond The Last Coast, in Stuttgarts Metal Club Schwarzer Keiler, seine Botschaft Metal am Puls der Zeit in dieser Nacht wieder in die Welt hinaus.

Keynote
Dr. Barbara Hornberger

Pop is a culture of the everyday. A culture that reacts quickly and directly to the present, and in turn shapes the present discursively and aesthetically. Artists, organisers and audiences are equally involved in this process, as artistic work and its reception negotiate essential questions of the time, and debates are initiated and advanced. Culture in general, and popular culture in particular, is therefore an essential means for society to assert itself, to negotiate norms and values, and to create individual and collective meaning.
Conversely, when we look at popular culture, both historical and contemporary, we can say something about the time in which it is created, in which it is popular, in which it is relevant. Pop, whether progressive, rebellious, subversive, hedonistic, affirmative or ambiguous, offers us a diagnostic viewof our history and our present.
The keynote will discuss how this time-agnostic quality of pop is groundedand what it means for our approach to and understanding of pop.

Fahar Amir

»When it comes to animals, the left turns right,« postulates Fahim Amir and strikes back. Criticism of environmental degradation or industrial animal husbandry is usually based on conservative notions of »untouched nature« or eco-capitalist concerns about sustainable resource management.

Amir counters the romanticisation of nature with politics rather than ethics. Rather than culturally pessimistically declaring animals to be mere victims, their story is told from a perspective of struggle: How unruly pigs were instrumental in the development of the modern factory. How unruly crowds of people and animals resisted the taming of New York in the early 19th century. How the city’s songbirds doped themselves thanks to high levels of estrogen in the sewage, and used nicotine from cigarette butts to ward off parasites in their nests. The story of malaria mosquitoes and attempts to control them throws a stroboscopic light on the neocolonial relationship between medical and political fever.
There is no going back to a supposedly pure naturebut new urban ecologies are an opportunity for new concepts of togetherness and antagonism. This is not about moral self-aggrandisement or market-like notions of social reform through correct consumption, but about utopian moments that make the present sputter.

Why our feminism needs to become more feminist

Feminism in Germany must change, demands journalist and author Sibel Schick: We need justice instead of marginalisation!

Calling yourself a feminist is all the rage, but that doesn’t mean that mainstream feminism deserves the name. After all, only a few people in Germany benefit from it: privileged, heterosexual and cisgender white middle-class people. And the exploitation of everyone else is pushed into invisibility.

If we want to live in a free society that demands real equality for all people, a lot has to change: in our coexistence, in politics, online, at work and in our understanding of democracy in general. Step by step, Sibel Schick analyses the exclusionary mechanisms of white feminism on the basis of current social debates, breaking with traditions and expectations. A highly relevant plea for a fairer world.

Alle reden von Musikstreaming-Diensten und sozialen Medien und wie sie die Art und Weise verändern, wie Menschen Musik konsumieren und entdecken. Kann der Dinosaurier Radio dem überhaupt noch irgendetwas entgegensetzen?
Vor allem die Allgegenwart und leichte, kostenlose Zugänglichkeit machen das Radio zu einem mächtigen Werkzeug, um Musikschaffende und ihre Songs einem breiten Publikum vorzustellen. Insbesondere für neue Talente, die noch keine große Online-Präsenz haben, liegt hier großes Potential.

Das Panel diskutiert den Stand der Radio-Infrastruktur und wägt zwischen der Rolle der Kurator*innen auf der einen und Gate-Keeper*innen auf der anderen Seite ab. Welchen Einfluss hat das Radio heute (noch) auf die Musikindustrie? Kann Pop nicht auch eine große Chance für Sender, gerade junge Hörer*innen-Schichten zu gewinnen?
Ist das Radio vielleicht doch kein Dino, sondern ein schützenswertes Kleinod, das wie die Vinyl schon bald eine große Renaissance feiern wird?

Popular culture has always been shaped by Jewish artists and personalities – in music, fashion, film and literature. But what does this look like in Germany and today? Who is involved? Who is involved and why? What perspectives are being taken? The panel discussion with author Mirna Funk, DJ and musician Yuriy Gurzhy and chanson singer Vivian Kanner takes a fascinating look at how Jewish perspectives help to shape or even shift the discourse in German pop culture. Through their experiences, identities and historical backgrounds, Jews often bring unique insights and reflections to the cultural dialogue. Their contributions can help to challenge existing narratives, deconstruct stereotypes and open up new horizons for artistic expression. All in all, the panel discussion promises to be an insightful examination of the role of Jews in German pop culture and invites you to gain new insights and inspiration.

The Stuttgart-based artist group Arthelps worked with young Ukrainians to build instruments out of war scrap. Rocket parts were used to make violins and guitars.
The Popakademie supports this project with musicians and productions, which not only aims to create music, but also to send a message of hope and resistance. In addition to raising awareness of the ongoing war, this project also supports the creation of a new creative hub and art therapy training centre, which is currently being built in the middle of Kyiv despite the circumstances of war.
The project will be presented in sound and vision in a lecture. This will be followed by a work by Ukrainian composer Mykola Lysenko: Op.40 No.1, performed by students of the Pop Academy together with Ukrainian violinist Alina Kikhno.

»We are the Turks of tomorrow. New Wave, New Germany« is about a cultural revolution. At the end of the 1970s, intellectuals recommended »German identity« as a therapeutic agent against a supposedly disorientated society. Young punks preferred to reinvent themselves. As garish, loud and provocative as possible.

The holes in their T-shirts and jeans were a reference to the general breakdown of conditions. They were a scandal in post-war Germany because the ideal world was not supposed to show any cracks.

Germany had long since become a country of immigration. But the majority of society found it difficult to accept this. Gabi Delgado-Lopez’s satirical response to German fears of foreign infiltration was: »We are the Turks of tomorrow.« He and several other children of migrants made a significant contribution to the invention of a German pop language. Soon the new movement was called the »Neue deutsche Welle«. The »German« in its name referred to the language, not the country.

The artists of the New Wave reflected everyday life in a society that was still characterised by authoritarian standardisation constraints. The punks made fun of old and new Nazis. Young women formed bands against the resistance of wide-legged men. Then they cheerfully sang about their desires to annoy the patriarchy. Last but not least, the styles and lyrics of the New Wave played with gender roles. They propagated a playful form of queerness. »Who are the girls? Who are the boys?« asked The Wirtschaftswunder from Limburg, for example. Their singer was a young guest worker from Sicily.

Diversität in der Förderung.

Dieser Talk mit der Initiative Musik und Projekten aus der Strukturförderung geht der Frage nach, welche Bedeutung und welchen Einfluss Mentoringprogramme haben und wie sie zu mehr Diversität und Geschlechtergerechtigkeit in der Musikbranche beitragen können. Was kann Mentoring bewegen und welche Veränderungen ergeben sich daraus für die Praxis? Und warum sind sie so wichtig?

Die von der Strukturförderung der Initiative Musik unterstützten Initiativen und Projekte sind nicht nur vielfältig, sondern auch äußerst wirkungsvoll: Unter dem Motto »better together« umfassen sie ein Producing-Mentoring zur Entwicklung des künstlerischen und persönlichen Potentials von FLINTA* Artists, ein individuelles 1:1 Mentoring zur Professionalisierung in der Musikwirtschaft sowie ein frisch gegründetes Netzwerk, in dem unabhängige Musikunternehmer*innen gemeinsam agieren können.

Das »FEMALE* PRODUCER COLLECTIVE«, »MEWEM – Mentoring Programme for Women Entrepreneurs in the Music Industry« und »MUSIC WOMEN* HESSEN« tauschen sich darüber aus, wie ihre Programme aktiv dazu beitragen, die Musikwelt zu diversifizieren und den immer noch vorherrschenden Boys-Club aufzubrechen. Sie zeigen auf, welchen Einfluss FLINTA*-Netzwerke haben, warum es wichtig ist, FLINTA* Personen mehr Sichtbarkeit zu geben und woran sie arbeiten, um die Branche fairer und gerechter zu gestalten. Denn Mentoringprogramme

schenken Vorbilder, schaffen sichere Räume für den Austausch und sind enorm wichtige Netzwerke.

Deepfakes, new songs by long-dead musicians, voice clones of famous singers and entire albums without a human being in the studio – is this the music industry of the future?

How much artificial intelligence in which areas of music production is »healthy« and where is the red line that should not be crossed? In which areas of the music industry is AI already a reality, perhaps even without the general public being aware of it? let’s take a look at the music industry of tomorrow today.

Lack of diversity in the music industry – now a much-discussed topic? Not quite. It’s true that the shortcomings of festival line-ups are being discussed more and more frequently, which is great. But what goes on behind the scenes in labels, publishing houses, booking and sound engineering, for example, is unknown to most people. It’s time to have an in-depth chat with the people behind the scenes in the music industry.

Embrace your cringe.
Just be embarrassed, find everything embarrassing, even think embarrassingly. We dig through our shame together, find long-hidden treasures and at some point simply leave these feelings behind. Together we will collectively create a work of art and dedicate ourselves to shame, shaming, bullying and good feelings towards ourselves.

Team Tomorrow

At Team Tomorrow, young people always plan for young people. They face all the challenges of event planning: from the planning phase to authorisation and implementation, there is a lot to consider. What political and bureaucratic pitfalls could there be? How much lead time do I need? Who should I get on board? And how do you manage to stay on the ball, even when the mills of bureaucracy often grind slowly? That’s what this workshop is all about.
