As its title suggests, the 2nd SYNÄSTHESIE Festival offers more than just a concert experience, but rather a blending of senses combining an impeccably curated program of experimental psych and garage rock with visual imagery. Limited to 500 guests, SYNÄSTHESIE offers a compact international lineup of bands that represent the 8MM Musik aesthetic, contemporary music inspired by german experimental music of the late 60s & early 70s. A living history of music that has gone against and continues contrary to mainstream trends. This years festivals surreal setting of a war damaged brewery in former East Berlin helps complete the sense of SYNÄSTHESIE.
SYNÄSTHESIE II Complete Lineup:
Michael Rother Plays NEU! Harmonia & Solo Works (D)
The Warlocks (USA)
Tess Parks Band (Canada)
Dead Rabbit (UK)
Medicine Boy (South Africa)
Gunman & The Holy Ghost (Iceland/Berlin)
