IGSM Surf Expo 2018

IGSM Surf Expo 2018

When you talk with a foreigner about Munich, nobody can imagine (if they don’t know anything about the city) that you can actually surf in the Isar and exists a big community of surfers in the Bavarian capital. This is why an event like IGSM Surf Expo makes sense. If you are crazy about catching waves (even in a river) that’s the place to be for the next days. In this fair, you can assist to a Surfboard Repair Workshop, watch some movies about this sport or buy some second-hand…

The first person to open this section is Matthias Schmidt, an architect, promoter and synthesizer lover responsible of the festival Knobs & Wires which takes place the next 2nd of June.

Shorts Attack: Sex and insanity

Shorts Attack: Sex and insanity

Sex sells. Everybody knows that. Once I heard that two things rule this world, one is money and the other is sex. I like to think that other emotions and things are more important, but this affirmation may be true if we look around. In any case, sex is something that interest everybody. Is healthy, is pleasant, is funny and good for your skin as some people say. But it has also its dark side, can be used as a way of power or get people addicted to it. A new…

This is how Alien Disko sounds

This is how Alien Disko sounds

Last weekend we went to the Alien Disko festival, an event from outer space for music lovers of all kinds. The second edition was plenty of different styles, as it was the first edition. If you wanted to hear something different and to let yourself go in melodies, sounds, noises, beats, and, in the end, music, that was your perfect festival. African sounds, electronic music, rock, indietronica… if we were dancing on another planet, maybe this would be the soundtrack. The night of the Friday began with Drahla, a band…

Alien Disko # 2

Alien Disko # 2

We were really lucky to assist to the first edition of Alien Disko last year. A festival curated by The Notwist can’t be disappointing, on the contrary, you are going to discover some of the most amazing bands on the planet Earth. And probably of the universe, because, believe me, some of the artists you will see seem from another planet, in the best sense of the word. If the last year we enjoyed the incredible performances of Sun Ra Arkestra, Stargaze, Tenniscoats, Joanna Gruesome and The Notwist themselves, this year…

Contact Festival

Contact Festival

If you love techno and electronic music, we have a very good news for you. This weekend Contact festival is celebrated in Munich. That means an impressive line-up consisted of DJs and live music during day and night. If you like to see the sun (or in the case of Munich these days see just light) you can choose just going to the festival during the day. On the contrary, if you are more like an owl and you enjoy the mysteries of the night, you can also choose just…
