This is what you´re going to see next June 2021
Simon and Patricio formed the band in the Centocelle district of Rome in 2007, before recruiting Guiseppe six years later. After a string of successful EPs and two years hibernating to record the opus, the band feels now is the time to release a full length.
The Chemistry and closeness of the bandmembers both on and off the stage is a factor to take in consideration. They are definitely the best-kept secret of Italian psychedelia and fun to have around.
Mystery Art Orchestra
In 2012, singer and guitarist Tino Bogedaly was drawn to Berlin to discover the city's rock 'n' roll underground, that provided what he’d been missing out in the sticks. Inspired by the local music scene he founded the Mystery Art Orchestra. What started as a warmer psychedelic sound cooled down when André Wlodarski joined the band on keys and has since evolved into a modern interpretation of Post-Punk. Drummer Bastian Müller is the driving force, giving minimalistic rhythm to varied guitar arrangements while electronic bass and synthesizer add another dimension.
The result is sometimes disruptive and sometimes strangely familiar, almost as if different musical decades have been torn apart and stitched back together in unexpected ways. After several live performances in Germany, England and Portugal, MAO produced their debut album "Prismatic Dream" (robojim, 2018) and a 7"-EP "Enjoy The Violence" (robojim, 2019). The band is currently working on a new release for 2020.
Juleah and her band are playing smooth Psychrock, flavored with elements of swaggering Britpop and shimmering Shoegaze. Melancholia surfs on gentle waves towards the summer, guitars meander in yin and yang while the blues leads into the depths of the subconscious. The groove is steering the course, easygoing, while the songs conquer widths soaked in reverb.
Blending the bluesy rock & roll of the Brian Jonestown Massacre and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club with the shoegaze decadence of Ride and Slowdive, Juleah has found its trademark sound in sweet but sultry vocals and the depths of reverb-soaked guitars. While remaining steeped in omnipresent psych leanings, Juleah has delicately perfected the art of genre reinvention, taking heed of everything from the snarl of southern guitar riffs to the shimmer of surf rock.
“There was a thread in American music in the late 1960s that someone untangled across the U.S., then stretched over to Europe, where it took root in 80s shoegaze. It ties together bands as disparate as the 13th Floor Elevators, the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Mazzy Star, Blonde Redhead, and the Jesus & Mary Chain. It’s noise rock or math punk or psychedelic or shoegaze or doom: It’s the down-tuned sound of chaos and beauty, and while no one was looking, it also worked its way through the Americas and took root in Brazil under the name Firefriend. At the forefront of this new wave of darkwave, psychedelia is this band, from Sao Paulo, Brazil: Firefriend. Formed in 2009, this three-piece continues to go from strength to strength: Each album offering stronger material than it’s predecessor. With a huge cult-following rapidly gaining numbers in both Europe and North America.
Blending wiry, dark post-punk with unpredictable art-rock, Drahla have established themselves as a formidable and distinctive band across their two sold out 7” singles and the 2017 Third Article EP. Formed in late 2015, Drahla quickly found their identity in Yorkshire’s fertile music scene with their minimal yet robust bass-heavy sound. Their reputation as a fervent live act is ever-growing, with the band being asked to share stages with the likes of Parquet Courts, METZ, Ought, Buzzcocks, The Cribs and more.
We are Mark Owen and Francois Sky, Berlin based.
Our band is called Mono-Cult. our music is based on modular synths and vintage gear. We believe in repetition, simplicity and transcendence. We are neither in the past, nor the future. We are in the eternal now.
Father Midnight were born next to an abandoned Späti in a dark slimmy street in Berlin. Rising from the underground mush the guys joined the temple of fuzz with edgy guitar reefs, solos, groovie bass lines and kicking drums.

Excess, surplus, too much, saturation, overkill, overload… they are all synonymous of GLUT.
Too much of good things, in slang.
This is THE GLUTS, a powerful overloaded psychedelic rock.
We like the punk attitude and the DIY, and of course we are proud to have heard someone say: “They are the LOUDEST band in Milan”
Play to believe. But play it LOUD.
Der Weisse Hase.
What used to be RAW Temple, in Friedrichschain, is now since five years The White Rabitt. It has become a well-known location in the underground techno scene. Also bands from the punk, garage, and psychedelic scene have made it through the insides of this kept secret. On your way in you will meet the Vinyl Market and street food, followed by Pedal Markt. Some steps forward into the lounge area with Djs all night long with warm Rock n Roll. The Main Floor, where the bands deliver their shows under the lights and visuals from Dwavehed to place us in the mood.
