..almost 100%. But seriously, who can't guess the mysterious Swedish headliner?? (apparently it is not Pouppée Fabrikk - it's Portion Control!)
Continuing last year's tradition, Familientreffen VII goes on for three days - 28. July till 30. July. The festival webpage includes all infos regarding hotels, tents, tickets, prices, food, and fun stuff for EBMer's.
If you haven't attended this festival before and wondering why you should, the answer is very simple: Familientreffen is simply the best festival around for anhalt and old school EBM. Located in the countryside of East Germany (Sandersleben) it is a magnificent event with cheap German beer, cheap German food, and a hole ton of stomping activity.
Starting Thursday as a warm-up day with only two bands and DJ activity later into the night, and continuing with bigger line-ups for Friday and Saturday:
Human R3source (raw anhalt EBM with Pouppée Fabrikk influence)
The Love Dictators
Blood Shot Eyes (hard and angry Italian anhalt EBM)
Stockholm Wrecking Crew (Swedish hardcore electropunks with their own unique anhalt EBM style!)
Jäger 90 (probably playing early to bring a bigger public earlier, this band can be more DAF-like than DAF themselves)
Ionic Vision (old school legends with insane energy on stage!)
Plastic Noise Experience (old school EBM)
Bodystyler (melodic, yet energy filled anhalt EBM)
Tech Nomader (masters of Spanish EBM with probably the most raw anhalt EBM new release "Domótica" up to date)
Nordarr (tight and straight forward anhalt EBM)
Sequenz-E (anhalt ebm with raw and angry vocals!)
Prager Handgriff (varying industrial and old school EBM)
Coinside (martial industrial meets old school EBM)
Rummelsnuff (muscles and a mix of everything alternative)
Spetsnaz (tough and hard beating swedish hardcore hooligans!)
The Eternal Afflict
????? (242 Tassen Jäger for those who can guess this Swedish band..but then we might run out of Jäger!)
Monday 14 March 2011
Do you like Fight Club? That is not what this is about. 26th March, in Stockholm, Fabriken, EkoBrottsMyndigheten and Pouppée Fabrikk bring down the fist of solid rock and steel, the boot of leather, with maximum stomp intention. View all the details such as the address, ticket cost, and information for visitors from abroad, at the official event page.
Pouppée Fabrikk resurrected last year, and with a new album coming up and fantastic performance at Body Fest last year, their fans will no doubt be treated well during this night. The band will play a few songs from their upcoming album as well. All you have to do is watch videos from Body Fest (powerful EBM link, another powerful EBM link) to see that Pouppée Fabrikk is one of the most powerful and energy filled old school EBM bands to ever exist!
EkoBrottsMyndigheten naturally will bring the party attitude. Their half a year old album Alla Tiders Bodykallas was a superb anhalt EBM release, filled with songs about Jäger and beer. Expect maximum alcohol-energy, buy Jäger shots, and do push-ups! (Jäger-filled EBM link)
As Fight Night Records say themselves, it is uncertain if the venue where this event is taking place, Fabriken, will stand after these two powerful EBM bands.
Additionally, take notice of another Scandinavian event, in Norway Trondheim 19th March: Sturm Café ist zurück in Norwegen!
