Munich. The Pure&Crafted Festival will be returning to the Berlin Postbahnhof on 12. and 13. August 2016 with lots of rock and alternative music, a big chunk of motorbike culture and a dash of New Heritage lifestyle. With exclusive Berlin gigs by Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Mando Diao, Pure&Crafted is staging one of the capital’s big festival experiences of the summer in 2016.
Once again this year’s programme, which is set before the urbane red-brick Postbahnhof train station located between Ostbahnhof and Spree river, will not only get guitar music and motorcycle enthusiasts excited.
Noel Gallagher’s voice is truly unmistakable, his guitar riffs are legendary – none other than Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be headlining the Pure&Crafted Festival. He will be bringing along his current solo album titled Chasing Yesterday and a selection of Oasis classics. Also appearing on the outdoor main stage: the Swedish band Mando Diao who can shift so skilfully between down-and-dirty garage rock riffs and polished pop volleys with their songs “Dance with Somebody” or “Black Saturday”.
A further highlight that has been booked this year are the Band of Skulls rockers from Southampton, who will also make the masses sway with their gigantically reverberating, larger-than-life sound. In addition these bands from England will also be appearing on stage: Treetop Flyers, The King Blues and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes. The line-up is completed by Abby, Tim Vantol, Slaves, Smile And Burn, Otherkin and PINS.
This has the music entertainment side covered. However, the Pure&Crafted Festival is more of an urbane festival experience than a regular music festival. Like last year the custom bike scene will be another heart piece of the event. This is where the festival shows how motorcycle culture and music harmonise together today.
The Wheels Area is an open-air workshop where festival visitors can look over the shoulders of designers and artists at work. Numerous hand-picked custom workshops will also be presenting their art and wares to the Berlin crowd. The legendary Motodrome will be a fixed installation again, too.
The crowning feature of the Pure&Crafted Festival is the
New Heritage culture. The General Store, located inside the Postbahnhof station, is the place to go for those who love classy fashion and lifestyle products combined with exquisite street cuisine and superb drinks. This year’s brands and exhibitors will be announced shortly.
Festival tickets are available for € 59.00 incl. charges if advance-booked. In addition day tickets can be purchased for Friday (€ 29.00) and for Saturday (€ 39.00). Tickets are available on www.pureandcrafted.com/tickets.
