Bear’s Den in Festsaal Kreuzberg

Bear’s Den is a folk-rock band which was formed back in 2012. They are based in London but are touring all over the world to play at venues and festivals. I personally fell in love with them during Lollapalooza 2017, which was organised in Hoppegarten, Berlin. There music fits in the category of bands like Mumford and Sons, The Paper Kites and Matthew and the Atlas. It is a perfect mix of sensitive folk with just enough rock to make it exciting and powerful.

The concert in Berlin of Bear’s Den will take place in Festsaal Kreuzberg. This place is located between Treptower Park and Schlesisches Tor and therefore has a great location. There are plenty of nice bars and restaurants around to meet your friends for a beer before going here. If you still want to party afterwards, you can easily go to clubs like the Arena or Club der Visionaere.

I can’t forget you. I try all the time.
I can’t forget you. Berlin, with your hand in mine

Saturday 11th of May
Ten Fé in Musik & Frieden

The English band Ten Fé consists of two friends called Leo Duncan en Ben Moorhouse. Their music fits in the category indie-pop and they had been playing underground-gigs in London for many years before they were discovered internationally. Their most popular song so far is probably “Elodie“, which personally reminds me a lot of the song “I’m on Fire” by Bruce Springsteen: It has the same lovely laidback vibe. The name Ten Fé comes from the spanish language and means so much as Have Faith.
