WEEK-END #4 2014


WEEK-END #4 2014

Thursday, November 27th, 2014 – Saturday, November 29th, 2014

 Köln, Germany


Striding on to its fourth year with the confidence of a teenage superstar, WEEK-END’s diverse lineup of pop- and post-punk, new folk, electro-pop and RnB/hip-hop presents every inch the kind of festival that Cologne used to yearn for.

WEEK-END focuses itself on the soft drive of a three-quarter pace sound, with the shimmering beauty of acts like Teenage Fan Club and Sinkane embodying this chilled-out yet strong-willed ambience. A perfect revitaliser in the midst of all things hectic and stressed, WEEK-END’s musical triumph is its carefully designed sonic landscape, right in the meeting point between the guitar-and-drums band and a more digital creativity.

Legendary post-punkers ESG and A Certain Ratio confirm the strong following WEEK-END has developed, and are sure to shake up the night sessions with an energy and rawness to let loose. The WEEK-END team are on to an absolute winner, and it’s only a matter of time before the Stadthalle has been out-grown. But for now, it is a perfect, big-enough-yet-still-intimate setting.
