Swingfest2014After already two very successful festival editions in Berlin and London earlier this year, Denovali Swingfest will be returning to its home edition in the city of Essen/Germany with a 4-day-festival in the first weekend of October 2014 featuring Ben Frost, James Holden, Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra, Oval, The Haxan Cloak, Demdike Stare, Hauschka, Bohren und der Club of Gore, Greg Haines, Rafael Anton Irrisari and more. The label is more than happy to share a festival sampler to introduce all performing artists.

Though mainly conceived as a label festival, the people at Denovali invited guest musicians, who represent the label’s musical context and influence, already to the first ever edition of the festival in 2007, and have been keeping up with this tradition ever since. Not limited to one musical genre, Denovali Swingfest offers a diverse range of music styles from darker experimental sounds, ambient, drone, indie and electronica to darkjazz, jazz or piano and string driven modern compositions.

The festival again takes place over 4 days (October 2nd until October 5th 2014) at the wonderful WeststadtHalle. This year’s edition will feature 21 artists on the regular days and a piano pre-event with 2 artists on Thursday October 2nd. Their sets will as always be as long as a proper club concert (around an hour). The ticket preorder has already started.
