Burg Herzberg Festival

BURG HERZBERG FESTIVAL - Ein halbes Jahrhundert Friede, Freude, Eierkuchen

Despite major social and musical changes, the spirit of Germany's biggest hippie festival has remained constant for fifty years. But how did it all start? What has changed? What are the constants? And what will be on the agenda for the big anniversary in 2018? Together with organizer Gunther Lorz we trace the historical cornerstones of the meeting of old and young flower children.


THE SEA WITHIN - Supergroup against will

THE SEA WITHIN - Supergroup wider Willen

With The Sea Within, Roine Stolt has gathered a veritable all-star ensemble - with members of The Flower Kings, Pain Of Salvation and The Aristocrats. Names like Daniel Gildenlöw, Marco Minnemann or Jonas Reingold raise the expectations of fans of progressive music. The band initiator is aware of this and therefore tries to keep the ball flat. What would not be necessary at all, because the self-titled debut is a stylistically versatile double album between prog, art pop, jazz rock and film music, in which the joy of the participants is clearly noticeable.

Nach der Großtat „Pure Comedy“ schaltet FATHER JOHN MISTY mehrere Gänge zurück

Josh Tillman doesn't give interviews about his new album "God's Favorite Costumer". Why, he must have thought, after all he threw himself into the media hustle and bustle for the not even one year old predecessor "Pure Comedy" without regard to losses. Suddenly his fictional character Father John Misty was on everyone's lips, not only the music press, but also the feuilletons became aware of the singer-songwriter. And he had also created a really wonderful album, which reminded of the West Coast Pop of the 70s, of brooding, shy songwriters like James Taylor or Jackson Browne.

Bei RIVERSEA macht der Text die Musik, während wechselnde Gitarristen für Abwechslung sorgen

Anyone who makes a phone call to England these days will soon be talking about the Football World Cup. Before we can ask Riversea keyboarder Brendan Eyre about the new album of the band "The Tide", he holes the German interviewer. As a fan of Manchester City he could not understand that Joachim Löw had not taken City striker Leroy Sané with him to Russia: "Is that something personal? The answer (strong competition on his position) doesn't really convince Eyre. But no matter. We actually want to talk about music!
