düsseldorf sounds

Festival of Art and Music from Düsseldorf

The Kunsthalle Düsseldorf will be celebrating its 40th anniversary this year with a two-day Festival of Art and Music from Düsseldorf in the building erected in 1967 on
the Grabbeplatz. For many decades now art and music have enjoyed a particular symbiosis in Düsseldorf — unlike any other city — be it Fluxus, serious music and jazz, punk, new wave, rock and electronica. It is precisely the diversity and the proximity of the most varied musical/artistic directions that is both characteristic for the Düsseldorf scene and decisive in determining »düsseldorf sounds« —

as a musical arena between the avant-garde and pop.
The festival düsseldorf sounds presents the diverse musical activities of the Düsseldorf art scene in partially new and unexpected groupings of musicians and artists. The concerts will take place in different locations within the whole building: in the spaces of the Kunsthalle and the Kunstverein, on the stage in the Kom(m)ödchen, in the Salon des Amateurs bar, in the Walther König book shop and in the Kunsthalle's car park facility.

The label a-Musik will have a booth with artists' records and experimental music in the foyer of the Kunsthalle during the festival.
