Bizarre Festival 2nd Edition

Bizarre Festival 2nd Edition

The Bizarre Music Festival was born during the COVID-19 pandemic at a moment when restrictions were being eased and it was possible to play in front of an audience again. After the heavy restrictions imposed on the cultural sector, being able to perform live again felt very strange.

As artists we receive a lot from these exchanges, at the same time we also give much of ourselves – this is the symbiosis and synthesis of energy that makes the space vibrate higher.
Not having this exchange for so long left many of us drained and weakened, wondering about our role in a society without public gatherings. We want to dedicate this festival to ourselves, the artists who give so much of themselves. We also want to use this opportunity to turn the camera back on the audience to capture their joy and energetic participation and we’d like the documentation to reflect this very important synergy between artist and audience.

After the great success of Bizarre's first edition last year, we’re back with a highly anticipated second edition. Although we’re thankfully no longer under pandemic restrictions, this festival provides us with an important reminder not to take our roles as performers or audience members for granted.

The Bizarre Music Festival will again bring on stage international musicians of all origins, most of whom have chosen Berlin as their city of heart, as well as others who are only passing through, but feel a strong connection to the city. Get ready for an evening full of music you never heard before, music that is the fruit of diversity, travel, sometimes even uprooting.

Line-up: Morena Leraba, Dumama & Kechou, Astan KA, K'boko, Sadek Democratoz, Aduni
