Under the paving stones, the beach. Underneath the mainstream, the innovation. Newcomer’s experiments are the most thrilling. The Pure&Crafted gives them a stage.
Songwriting is on a roll like it hasn’t been since the early 70s, when Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and The Mamas and the Papas raised their voices. In the 2020s, the genre is raised to the current level of discourse. Especially in the melting pot of Berlin, songwriting proves that it’s the soundtrack to which guys put on pearl necklaces and women set the pace.
The Berlin platforms fem concerts and Berlinmusiker bring together the regional scene. Everything except cock rockers is welcome. fem concerts specialise entirely in the FLINTA* community. Both have designed specials for the Pure&Crafted – whereby the fem concerts special on Saturday will be presented by DIFFUS, probably the freshest digital music medium out there. Listen to the new signals! Whether with electronic peaks like Daada, emotional urgency like Soffie or G’emma’s feel for jazzy grooves: this is where the freshest impulses come from.
You can do more than just sing along? You are a lead singer! You can prove it at the Punk Rock Karaoke on the Pure&Crafted’s Second Stage. On Friday night, the future stars will be on stage. And if not, at least you had the fun of your life.
