Save the date.
First announcements coming soon!
For the fourth time the Dresden Psych Family e.V. presents the Reverberation Festival and celebrates the diversity of psychedelic music and art. This year the happening expands to three days in two different venues, where we will present a line-up reaching from local and international bands to art-installations, small theatre improvisations and DJ’s. We want to provide a (con)temporary space and frame for people from different worlds to find together and enjoy being alive and thinking about everything that brings us together. We are all part of the valley of Dresden and want to show another facet of cultural and social life.

24th January // 8mm Bar Berlin
Based at „Mamma Leone Records“ NOWAVES are the reincarnation of the original New-York-Sound of 1979. Just like that they are great at not letting anybody know too much about themselves. You will have to see and hear for yourself. We are happy to have them at Berlins 8mm nest and play some records after their show.
26th January // Kasarna Karlin Prag
14th February // Ilses Erika Leipzig
Snøffeltøffs: Ein paar Jahre ist es her, dass die jugendlichen Rabaukenschleimer Snøff und Tøff gemeinsam in der Ilse zu sehen waren. Nach dem Erfolg ihres Debütalbums „Hokus Pokus“ wurde es still um die Gruppe.
Aus gutem Grund: angezeckt von Begegnungen während einer langwierigen Tour trieb es Bandmitglied Florian in die ambitionierten Gefilde der Politik. Als selbsternannter Jan Dark Nordberlins setzte er sich im regionalen Wahlkampf für Soziales ein. Nach achtzehn Monaten musste er jedoch einsehen, dass nicht jeder Schlagzeuger auch als Parlamentarier taugt – im Maßanzug kehrte er in den Prenzlauer Berg (die Wahlheimat der Snøffeltøffs) zurück. Doch oh Graus: Sänger und Gitarrist Julianwar nirgends aufzufinden.
22nd February // Ostpol Dresden
The Mauskovic Dance Band combines elements of cumbia, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, & space disco in equal measure to create a unique hypnotic groove. The group is the brainchild of Nicola Mauskovic, Amsterdam based producer and multi-instrumentalist. The Mauskovic Dance Band is:Nicola Mauskovic, Donnie Mauskovic, Em Nix Mauskovic, Mano Mauskovic, and Juan Hundred.
Fenster is Elias Hock (DE) Jonathan Jarzyna (DE), Lucas Ufo (FR) and JJ Weihl (USA). Their mission in creating this album was to compose and arrange every song together in a room. It is an experiment in collective creativity that pushed all of them to transcend their individuality and create something together which is greater than the sum of its parts.
“The Room”, Fenster’s fourth album and their first release on Altin Village & Mine marks the beginning of a new chapter for the band. After releasing three albums, a feature length film, and touring extensively throughout Europe and North America since 2012, “The Room” serves as an entry point into their sonic evolution. The essential characteristic of the band is transformation – within and between genres, albums, and songs. Their sound is a window framing psychedelic, groovy, hypnogogic, playful pop.
Ouzo Bazooka was formed in Tel Aviv, a city with its own unique lifestyle, where one can feel that the vibrant urban scene is driven by cultural coexistence and vigorous creation. Drawing influences from this melting pot and exotic Middle Eastern feel, along with classic hard rock, psychedelic art, garage rock and surf – Ouzo Bazooka’s sound is a dizzying concoction of east meets west.
Worldwide acclaimed as one of the best rock’n’roll emerging band around, New Candys are always looking forward to be on the road! Tour in Australia in February 2018 and a US one in April 2018 brought the band to record a live studio session for the legendary KEXP!
Hailing from Venice, Italy, New Candys formed in 2008. Described as dark modern rock’n’roll, the band combines noisy, brooding sounds with distinct melodies and has developed a notably dynamic and symbiotic connection between their music and meticulously crafted visual imagery. The band consists of Fernando Nuti, Andrea Volpato, Alessandro Boschiero and Dario Lucchesi.
Released in 2012, their first studio album ”Stars Reach The Abyss”, mastered by Jon Astley, brought the band on tour in England and Italy. The song “Meltdown Corp.” was included in the annual compilation “The Reverb Conspiracy”, co-released by the highly revered independent label Fuzz Club and The Reverberation Appreciation Society (Levitation Austin). In 2015 their second studio album “As Medicine”, mixed by John Wills of Loop, was released through Picture In My Ear and Fuzz Club and distributed by The Committee To Keep Music Evil. In the next two years the band toured Europe three times, also performing at the Secret Garden Party and Liverpool Psych Fest. They supported bands such as Slowdive, The Vaccines, Savages, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and The Warlocks.
Heartbreaking vocals harmonies, soulful atmospheric folk and some psychedelic space trips
… with a bluesy breeze of soul.
After some changes in the line up, the quintet will fire up any audience again in 2018. Energetic rhythms, polyphonic vocals and massive organ sounds gonna revive the psychedelic of the sixties in a modern pop-robe. The band released their debut at Timezone Records in 2014: 6 songs, somewhere between psychedelic rock, folk and blues, put together on a piece of vinyl. The second album is planned for autumn 2018 in cooperation with Dynamite Platten.
The power trio lined up on the front of the stage delivers a mighty wall of sound that sets ground on space rock grooves to get to those garage kraut drives carved with alienated psychobilly inspired vocals reminiscing of King Gizzard and The Lizzard Wizzard or Thee Oh Sees.
One of the most promising acts making music in Ukraine right now is Tik Tu. Their combination of space sounds and harmonies as well as grooves and folkloric element results in misty yet fresh and exciting sound that drags you into its very own spheres.
This psycho-deer claims french to paint landscapes, personalities or situations and oniric tales, in a tradition and a sound of dream-pop. You can hear Stereolab, an obvious belonging to the actuel neo-psych scene, or this love of retro synth similar to Jacco Gardner. And that’s from all these things the Biche feeds.
It all started in 2012 when Sara, Evangelos and Angelos found themselves in a hyped Athenian bar and decided to start a band that a few minutes later named it CHICKN. After a couple of rehearsals, an EP (“She’s got a CHICKN to ride”, self released cassette – 2012) – two weeks later, Angelos took this whole incident characteristically seriously and actually started that band because it felt right from the very first sound CHICKN ever produced.
It has been six years of experimentation, nuclear gigs and two dozens of people forming, destroying and re-forming CHICKN. WOWSERS!, is the love child of that ever-changing line-up. Long story short; Angelos (thoughts and prayers) still fronts the band while Pantelis switched from percussion to drums. At a pivotal point of loneliness they invited Chris to jam with them, who at the time was working at the studio where CHICKN were rehearsing. It took an instant and he was on. Just before they started rehearsing for the recording sessions they were joined by two old-timers, bassist extraordinaire Axios Zafeirakos and sensational multi-instrumentalist Haris Neilas as well as a new maverick, free jazz trumpetist Don Stavrinos.
Melissa Kassab appeared on the European music scene with her delicate and haunted folk. Originally from the mountains of Valais, she grew up between Geneva and Tripoli to Swiss and Lebanese Parents. She writes her songs while on the road, either hitchhiking or living in her car in Switzerland, New Zealand or the States. Her debut album « Dog » was spontaneously recorded over the course of two days in the basement of a rocket factory in Geneva. After another year touring and traveling here and there, Melissa returned to Switzerland to compile her forthcoming record set to release on March 17th 2017. Not knowing or planning wheres, whens and hows is the way she goes and seemsto want to keep going for now.
studied drama at the Hannover school for music, theatre and media. Since 2018 he is a permanent member of the Landestheater Schwaben. Tonight he will perform a theatre installation after a short story by Hans Fallada (time 1) and a performance of a text by Koltes (time 2).
studied history of art, drama and scenery in Berlin and works as a freelance artist in the area of drama, dance and film. You will be able to see a selection of her work – in which she focuses on sociopolitical topics and perceived reality – at different locations in- and outside of Scheune.
