Today I’ll leave home for a few days with some of my best friends. Our target: the beautiful Appletree Garden Festival in Diepholz. The festival exists since 2001 and I’ll be there for the fifth time this year. Like every year I’m really looking forward to camping on a really peaceful camping site, relaxed and kind people (even the securities used to be kind to me) and of course a lot of good artists.
On Friday there’ll be Kakkmaddafakka of course as the headliner of the day, but also bands like Efterklang, When The Saints Go Machine and Ewert And The Two Dragons used to be great live-acts. My more or less secret tips for that day: german Singer-Songwriter Honig and the New Orleans duo Generationals, whose song When they fight, they fight is present everywhere.
On Saturday Shout Out Louds will headline the program, which has a lot of pearls to explore: BRNS from Belgium, The/Das from Berlin and SOHN from London and Vienna are only some of the hidden secrets on the festival. My absolute Highlight will Mikhael Paskalev though. Beautiful pop music from Sweden with the special something.
For your inspiration I’ve added some videos of the artists below. Check them out and if you like them, you’ll have a problem: the festival is SOLD OUT since weeks. Congratulations to the festivals’ makers. You did a great job!
