Die Festung Rockt! 2019

I am finally done with editing the Festung Rockt pics! It was a blast as usual and I can’t wait for next year. It was so lovely to meet my fellow photographers again and be in the pit. It is so nice to see the community come together through music at this festival that is organized by volunteers of all ages. Of course, as always they had some amazing bands playing including some local talents like Roadkill BBQ and The Riot Robots but also international goodies like Days N’ Daze and NH3!

Rockin’ Carbonara

So here we are, still that Thursday in Bamberg, covered in sweat and sunscreen with my loyal friend the backpack and a wide grin on my face. Right after leaving the Maxplatz I made my way to the Pegasus Stage to get myself into some fantastic rockabilly madness. I want to be honest and say when I first did my obligatory 5 minutes of research I wasn’t sure if I should reach out to them and ask for permission or not.

Super Cumbia Y La Liga De La Alegría

While looking through this year’s lineup of the Blues & Jazz Festival Bamberg one band especially caught my attention: Super Cumbia Y La Liga De La Alegría. It was not only the unique and long name that made me click on their description but rather their incredibly fun looking promo photo. A bunch of people in homemade superhero costumes. I just had to find out who they are and I was not at all disappointed when I first heard their song: “La vida está hecha pa’ otra cosa” what roughly translates to “Life is made for something else”.  As I felt that smile growing on my face and my body slightly moving to the beat, I knew I had to go and see them. What a great decision that was.Read More »

Die Festung Rockt! 2018

Finally, the day has come to invade the castle and fill it with loud music. On my way to Kronach, I already met some festival goers getting in the mood on the train. It was a nice and hot summer’s day what wouldn’t have been a problem at all if the festival area wasn’t on the top of a terrible hill but that couldn’t keep me or the fans away. After going through the security check I was all ready to get set up for the first band.Read More »
