St. Patrick’s Festival Berlin 2018

Dear friends of St. Patrick’s Festival Berlin,

We are delighted to announce that SPFB is officially BACK WITH A BANG on Saturday, March 17th, 2018!!! #patisback

We have joined forces with Urban Spree in Friedrichshain to host our special day in March!

Urban Spree, the cultural icon on the old RAW Grounds beside Warschauer Str, is the perfect venue for our comeback special! We’ll have Irish streetfood vendors serving delicious Irish drinks and food, live music, Irish dancing, and so much more. Make sure you join our Facebook event to stay up to date with announcements!

Unfortunately we didn’t receive permission for the parade this year, but not to worry! We’ll open the gates at Urban Spree from 13:00 so rugby fans will be able to watch the first of 3 live games in the 6 Nations Championship. The highlight will be England vs Ireland (k.o. 15:45) shown on big screens.

We have invited Setanta Berlin GAA to build an indoor GAA section showcasing the very best of Gaelic football and hurling. We will have kids activities, such as Irish Storytelling, arts and crafts, face-painting and the very special opportunity to dance with our lovely Irish dancers.

We are also very pleased that members of Berlin-Ireland Pro Choice Solidarity will be joining us to raise awareness about the upcoming abortion referendum in Ireland and to promote the #hometovotecampaign.

We have a packed schedule of diverse, Berlin-based Irish musicians for the FREE concert in the garden. 4 Minute Mile are sure to set the tone early when they kick things off at 14:00. We will then have the opening ceremony at 15:00 featuring the incredible dancers from Irish Beats Dance Company Berlin. St. Patrick himself is also due to make an appearance 🙂

2-piece Irish folk group Slí na Sláinte will have a more calming influence on proceedings when they take to the stage at 16:00. After the Irish rugby match (17:30), headline act Joey Ryan and his band will take to the stage performing a mix of his own material as well as Irish rock classics. Kilkelly will then perform some folk and blues numbers before Seán Óg and David Flowerkraut treat us to some classic Irish ballads.

The Afterparty featuring a traditional Céilí Mór Irish dance followed by renowned Irish DJs follows on from the concert and will keep revellers moving until the wee hours 🙂

Filastine&Nova present Drapetomania

Filastine & Nova present their new album “Draptomania” (Jarring Effects) for the first time in Berlin.

Filastine & Nova are a multimedia duo working to undermine borders. Their music collides electronic beat production with dense layers of voice, concréte sounds, analogue synths and strings. Spin magazine calls it “bass music for crumbling urban futures,” and Pitchfork says “they sound less like `world’ music and more like music from another world.” Another world is exactly what they aim to create, using sound, video,design, and dance to express a radically different vision of the possible.

Filastine is the handle of Barcelona-based composer and video artist Grey Filastine. A former taxi driver from the United States, Filastine studied percussion with the coke-fueled carnival batucadas of Brazil and mystical brotherhoods in Morocco. In 1999 he founded the Infernal Noise Brigade marching band, putting these rhythms to use in a live soundtrack for the Seattle WTO revolt and the globalization protests that followed. DJ/Rupture discovered and released Filastine’s premiere album, Burn It! (2006), launching a decade of critically-acclaimed albums and world tours. One of those tours brought him to Jakarta where he met vocalist Nova Ruth, rhyming in Indonesia’s seminal rap group Twin Sista. Nova’s deep musical roots add much to Filastine’s sound; she was raised singing pentecostal spirituals with her priest grandfather, reciting Quran, and playing Javanese gamelan percussion. Beyond music, Nova’s continues her “day job” building networks among Southeast Asia’s video activists and hackers.

Together they create unique and fearless interventions: an official mixtape for The Act of Killing documentary, a sound swarm at the Paris Climate Summit, a performance in the Calais Jungle migrant camp. Their latest effort, Abandon, is a video series profiling dances of emancipation from work, filmed in locations from coal mines in Borneo to office cubicles in America. The songs of Abandon and a grip of other new tracks will come out this year on the duo’s first full album together, Drapetomania, colliding psychedelic trap, tropical post-folk and a punk ethos into a compelling audio thesis.

Filastine & Nova are foremost performing artists, their live show is where sound, image, and ideas are embodied. They’ve toured the five continents, appearing at festivals such as Sonar (ES), Downtown Cairo Arts (EG), Decibel (US), Les Vieilles Charrues (FR), Foreign Affairs (DE), Mona Foma (AU). For the new Drapetomania performance the duo are working with a guest dancer and cinematic multi-screen visuals to conjure an emergency exit from the anthropocene. Expect to find them anywhere, turning friction into beauty.

DUEL (USA) + Have Blue

DUEL – heavy psychedelic stoner doom metal band from Austin, Texas, USA. Hugely influenced by the darker sounds of early 70’s Proto-metal. Features two ex Scorpion Child (Nuclear Blast) members.
Their sound is menacing and brutally old school. Total purists, their tunes cut right to the bone with heavy, deep groove and blistering tone. Tough and Loud! Hard rock as it should be!

For fans of: Judas Priest, Pentagram, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats

PEOPLE.
THE ANSWER HAS BEEN HERE THE ENTIRE TIME. JUST MUSIC, ALWAYS.
THIS IS WHAT TREVER SAID, FINISHING THE STORY OF A LONG JOURNEY. THIS OCTOBER WE HAVE STARTED A NEW ONE. TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS. WORKING ON OURSELVES, WORKING ON MUSIC. TRYING TO PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER THAT EXPRESSES WHAT WE STAND AND CARE FOR. NOT BASED ON STRATEGIC ALLIANCES, BUT REAL RELATIONSHIPS.

MUSIC IS OUR LANGUAGE. THIS IS WHAT WE SPEAK. EVERYONE IS CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS MAKING THIS THE BEST WE CAN DO. WHAT CAN WE DO? WHAT IS IN OUR HANDS, WHAT FOR?

SOMETIMES THE BIGGEST QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED WITH SIMPLE ACTIONS. THIS GET-TOGETHER IS OUR ACTION. THIS IS WHAT WE CAN DO NOW. DOING SOMETHING TOGETHER. FREE. VULNERABLE. EPHEMERAL. THAT OCTOBER WEEKEND WE OPENED OUR DOORS AND HEARTS SHOWING OURSELVES RAW, INSPIRED AND FULL OF SONGS. WE WERE THROWING IT ALL OUT THERE. BUILDING ON THINGS WE KNOW, ON TALENTS AND TOOLS WE HAVE. ADDING SOMETHING TO IT, THAT ADDS THE UNKNOWN.

IN THIS, YOU SEE US. AS HUMAN AS THIS IS. YOU HEARD MUSIC THAT YOU KNOW. MUSIC THAT YOU LOVE. SOUNDS THAT CHALLENGED YOU AND POSSIBLY ALSO MUSIC THAT HURT. WE TAKE THIS RESPONSIBILITY. THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW. AND IN FACT, IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN. BUILDING ALTERNATIVES AND BUILDING SOMETHING BASED ON WHAT COMES OUT OF ALL OF US. THINGS WE AGREE ON: EQUALITY, TOGETHERNESS, INDEPENDENCE, ABUNDANCE AND CARE, AS WELL AS TAKING CHANCES. SETTING AN EXAMPLE FOR OURSELVES.

CREATING A SPACE WHERE WE ALL CAN SPEND TIME TOGETHER. THAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE THING. THE ABILITY TO COCREATE SOMETHING THAT IS COMING OUT OF ALL OF US. THE LOVE FOR EACH OTHER, THE LOVE FOR MUSIC, AND THE LOVE FOR THIS EXPERIENCE. BEING ABLE TO RIDE THROUGH THIS LIFE, MAKING DECISIONS AND CHANGES. IT’S IN OUR HANDS.

AND IT’S JUST MUSIC. BUT THIS IS OUR ANSWER, FOR TODAY, FOR RIGHT NOW. WE ARE GRATEFUL, THAT YOU ARE WITH US.
