Liveurope Festival 2017

Great discoveries of European music alternative are heading to Palác Akropolis. The Liveurope Festival will kick off on 20 September.

The Liveurope Festival is growing. It’s second edition will offer seven European projects in Palác Akropolis in Žižkov on 20 September. In the evening, it will offer a unique presentation of current discoveries of the continental alternative scene – from the dark rock lullabies played by Warhaus from Belgium through the playful punk of the Dutch band Indian Askin to the Finnish songwriter Mirel Wagner or the sophisticated indie rock played by Bad Karma Boy from Slovakia. The programme will start at 6:00 p.m.

Dark indie rock sucked with the atmosphere of black-and-white noir movies, that’s Warhaus from Belgium. The solo project of Maarten Devoldere from the successful Balthazar sounds like Nick Cave jamming with dEUS in a smoky bar at around 3 a.m. Warhaus made their debut last year with their album We Fucked a Flame Into Being recorded on a leased houseboat that gave the project its name. The blissful melancholy will lull the listeners the same way waves do; one has just to be careful about weirs. (warhausmusic.com)

The songwriter Mirel Wagner was born in Ethiopia but grew up in the Finnish town of Espoo where she still lives today. Her ballads seem to be trying to find contact points between Scandinavian coldness and African cordiality, resulting in spellbinding bittersweet blues. For her album When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day released on the cult Sub Pop, Mirel Wagner won the Nordic Music Prize for the best Scandinavian recording in 2014. (mirelwagner.com)

Bad Karma Boy from Bratislava have been stirring up the Slovak independent scene from 2013 when they released their eponymous debut. A kilo of psychedelia, a pinch of folk, a litre of indie rock and you get one of the most interesting Slovakian bands of recent years. The second album of the trio, titled Údolia a kopce (Valleys and hills) gave birth to the hit Dunaj (Danube) which tried to win at the Slovak annual Radio_Head Awards. Bad Karma Boy release their albums on the cult brand Slnko Records. (bad-karma-boy.com)
