HISTORY OF THE FESTIVAL
Since 2007 the label Denovali Records from Germany curates and organizes a three days music festival called Denovali Swingfest. Focussed on experimental music the lineup offers a wonderful opportunity to discover a wide range of international denovali artists live and is rounded off by various renowned non-label guest artists. A hallmark of the festival is the renunciation of the headliner principle: all artists are receiving the same attention – the length of each artist’s concert is equal. In addition to the musical program the festival features yearly changing specials like an experimental film cinema, installations or lectures. In the past years artists like Sunn O))), Tim Hecker, Hauschka, Mouse On The Keys, Hidden Orchestra, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, Bohren und der Club Of Gore, Thomas Köner, Bersarin Quartett or Nadja found a place in the lineup.
