WEEK-END Festival from 30 November to 2 December in Cologne.
One weekend in a unique location and once again a strictly limited number of tickets. Concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. and are followed on Friday and Saturday by after-show parties until 5 a.m., with DJ sets by Alexis Taylor (HOT CHIP), Justus Köhncke, Baris K (Istanbul) amongst others.
The following artists have confirmed their participation. This includes an exclusive performance for WEEK-END 2012. The American college-rock legend Stephen Malkmus (PAVEMENT) will perform CAN's pioneering album "EGE BAMYASI" live
together with members of local band VON SPAR; a one-off performance on the 40th anniversary of its release in the internationally revered krautrock band's hometown.
"Not many festivals have Ian Svenonius, Green Gartside, Justus Köhncke and Steve Malkmus sharing the bill. It will be a delight to take part, let alone watch the backstage socio-political discussions unfold!" (Alexis Taylor, Hot Chip)
