    Jungstötter

Wenn es um Musik aus Deutschland geht, ist Jungstötter gerade die Band der Stunde. Schon die erste Single trieb die Presse zu überschwänglichen Vergleichen mit Nick Cave, Scott Walker oder Mark Hollis. Und spätestens mit dem im Frühjahr erschienenen, von Max Rieger (Die Nerven) produzierten, Album „Love Is“ war wirklich jedem klar, dass hier etwas ganz Großes passiert. Der Sänger Fabian Altstötter croont zu einer jazzig-düsteren Instrumentierung über Leben, Liebe und andere existenzielle Katastrophen, sodass man sein (auch durch den Künstlernamen suggeriertes) Alter vergisst. Trotzdem ist das hier kein zusammengeklaubter Pastiche sondern, wie es sich für Pop gehört, zu 500% in der Gegenwart verwurzelt, mit all ihren verflixten Widersprüchen und Uneindeutigkeiten. (Zitat Kampnagel)

Kampnagel is a theatre in Hamburg, Germany. It is Germany's biggest independent production venue for the performing arts. It is based on the premises of a former mechanical engineering factory in Winterhude, founded in 1865. Since 1982 it has been hosting and producing cultural activities, theatre and dance performances and concerts.

The International Summer Festival Hamburg takes place for three weeks each August at Kampnagel and selected places in the city of Hamburg. Since its beginning in the mid 80s, the festival has held a position as one of the big European festivals, presenting theatre, dance, visual arts, performance, music and theory from all over the world. András Siebold has been Artistic Director of the festival since 2013. His programme focuses on the entanglement of pop culture and avantgarde and the interdisciplinary expansion of genre boundaries. Invited artists stand out due to their interest and engagement in the present and radical aesthetic approaches. An essential feature of the International Summer Festival is the high proportion of world premieres and co-productions, as well as European and German premieres, which are realized within a worldwide network of partners. Each year the festival invites or produces about 50 different works that attract around 30.000 visitors from Hamburg and abroad.
