As you can see, we get off to a great start and then it doesn't stop until Sunday morning just as brilliantly. It is questionable when one should go to a counter, the food stalls or into the tent. A decision that unfortunately we can't make for you, because we don't know it ourselves! There's still something by GEHEIMER HEADLINER from USA, stay tuned - information will follow in the next 2-3 weeks.
Unfortunately we also had to accept the cancellation of THE OPPRESSED. We hope, however, that we can catch up with their show next year.
For those who cannot attend all of the days of the event or just one, day tickets for Friday and Saturday are now available in advance. Day tickets for Thursday are only available at the box office.
Shortly before the bands close, we get the cute NOT THE ONES from Berlin on stage. The trio plays sugar-sweet and extremely fine as well as power-pop and simple '77 punk rock. Anyone who doesn't twitch is past rigor mortis and starts to stink!
At this point, a tear in the buttonhole for the brilliant NEIGHBORHOOD BRATS, which unfortunately doesn't can come. The background is mainly internet trolling/doxxing towards the bass player. Stupid shit that!
Hm, when we reported on the forest pool in the previous post, the song "Summer Sun" by the BABY SHAKES immediately came to mind. We'll urge them to play it with us too. Because what their Coney Island is, the forest bath is to us. Well, something like that at least.
Last weekend we got the first work assignment for you and us this year behind us. That was quite a torture, we can report. Because we also take care of all the areas that you don't really notice because there's something lying around during the three great days. Without these superstructures, the site is really quite large. But what the heck, we know what we're doing it for and afterwards the grill was thrown on. It didn't take long and the day came to a fine end.
Oh, in between we also took a longing look at the forest pool. As you can see, they're just waiting for the punks and skins to come back!
In the first picture you can see the four guys from LOIKAEMIE standing around quite relaxed. Okay, if you take a closer look, you could think Eddy was already in the mood to really deliver a few hours later. I think the rest of the pictures at »FB or »INSTA indicate that it worked quite well. Wow, thinking about 2019 and knowing what's to come, one goose bumps chases after the next!
"WE ARE THE BABOON SHOW" was the motto in Leipzig recently when the Swedes were finally able to go on tour again and got rid of the Felsenkeller. We know what that can look like for us, which is why we have to constantly rewrite our desired song list. With the countless hits of the band, it is significantly longer than their performance can be if other bands are also supposed to play that evening.
Thank you for the picture that Umann made for us.
... from Italy are joining our beloved Chaos Punx group this year. As the description already suggests, the cartridge belt is well filled and the trio will shoot in front of the bib. The trio from the Adriatic is coming to us for the first time and we are happy to present them to you. You can get in the mood for the merciless broadside here:
There have never been so many requests for our idyllic family camp as in the last few weeks and months. So far we had to put off all interested parties until the official decision was made at a later date. However, since we are now assuming that the corona protection regulations will not become stricter in summer, we hereby say:
Yes, there will be a family campsite again this year.
After all, the offspring must be further encouraged and, so to speak, experience early musical education from mother's milk, which also deserves the title! The previous years have shown that this is a great thing, parents and their kids are in good hands with us. The tent and RV sites for the camp will be in a separate limited area, for which you have to register in advance. For registration, other open questions and the process on site »REPORT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
In the same breath, we would like to introduce you to the reduction scheme for minors: Children up to the age of 13 have free admission to us. Children between the ages of 14 and 15 receive a 50% discount! However, these tickets can only be purchased at the box office. Please bring proof with you - birth certificate, pioneer ID card, etc.! From the age of 16 they are then full-paying. Under 18 and not with their parents at the BTF Festival? Then please fill out »THIS FORM OF THE EDUCATIONAL AUTHORIZATION and hand it in at the ticket office.
There's a really great BTF crew and family event on Saturday. Because there's the release party for the Outdate album "in ruins". A fantastic punk rock combo with crew participation. The whole thing will take place at L86 in Finsterwalde, organized by BTF family member ANGRY VOICE Records. By the way, their distro is always directly to the left of the entrance to the festival, should you want to pay the troop a visit. The record was released together with Riot Bike Records. May be they also come with a stand. Anyway, it's now about the release show on Saturday. Anyone who is in the vicinity or would like to travel is warmly welcomed and will be treated to a very special evening. Otherwise we have to wait until Outdate makes the ground tremble with us. By the way, the anticipation of the BTF in the band is enormous, we let ourselves be told.
Easter is such a wonderful festival. Religion sucks, the days off are fantastic!
We're dying couchsurfing and reading the new OxFanzine, which again has enough for a long weekend. In addition to the interesting interviews with Monchi from Feine Sahne Fischfilet, Hot Water Music, Zander Schloss or Siberian Meat Grinder, there are countless extras like Klaus N. Fricks follow-up novel about Peter Pank or the already fourth part of the punk historical consideration, which makes the thick and small print rag really worth reading every two months.
Oh, and look, even Daniel slipped in there together with RUHRPOTT RODEO-Alex and Steffen from the Mission Ready Festival.
