Band shaft NO.2 – Here we go!
Highfield Festival confirmed two headliners and many new acts for 2023
The organizers of the Highfield Festival announce several new names for the upcoming edition shortly before Christmas. In addition to Die Ärzte, SDP, RIN and Beatsteaks, K.I.Z and Marteria are new headliners. The festival from August 18 to 20, 2023, thus brings together the biggest names in indie, rock, pop and hip-hop at Lake Störmthal near Großpösna just outside Leipzig.
With their sixth studio album, K.I.Z. have proven that they are not tongue-tied in the face of all the problems in the world - quite the opposite: the Berlin hip-hop formation opens its mouth when it's necessary. Of course, they still don't mince words. Berlin snark with a double bottom, because their lyrics are as profound, ironic and ambiguous as ever. This, and the fact that they can intelligently let their hair down live, rightly makes them one of the most sought-after acts in word and beat art.
Marteria can be found at the top of the charts again and again for very similar reasons. His sound is as changeable as it is complex and combines a wide variety of emotions in a very small space. He is probably the only rapper on whom newspapers like the FAZ work off and attest his shows a "party break of the finest". You shouldn't be surprised about that with the jack-of-all-trades alias Marten Laciny, whose "Vollkontakt" tour is not called that for no reason and fills the arenas of the republic. No matter whether Marteria raps about love or nature conservation - the strong emotions he evokes are always discharged in dance in front of the stage.
Also confirmed are the eloquent Von Wegen Lisbeth, Giant Rooks and BHZ. Enter Shikari, Swiss & Die Andern and Nothing But Thieves also guarantee energetic live performances. Paula Hartmann loves good stories, You Me At Six punchy rhythms and Kaffkiez hooks that all listeners in front of the stage will sing along. Grossstadtgeflüster, Disarstar, OK KID and Emil Bulls are also lining up to give festival goers unforgettable concert memories.
More acts will be announced soon.
