Munich. After the party is before the party: The BMW Motorrad Days are barely over but the next event is already just around the corner. The Pure&Crafted Festival will be held for the first time in summer 2015 before the urban backdrop of the Berlin “Postbahnhof” and combines music, motorcycle culture and New Heritage lifestyle. The unique two-day festival offers the finest in guitar music, the love of handmade design and the best of the custom bike scene.
The Pure & Crafted Festival is presented by BMW Motorrad.
The line-up will thrill fans, enthusiasts and connoisseurs of
rock, alternative and folk at two venues both indoor and
outdoor. One of the highlights will be the spectacular
The Hives, who will be playing one of their two
Germany shows here this year as well as the punk rock heroes
Refused who will be bringing along a brand-new
album. Another act to appear on stage is the British trio of one
brother and two sisters Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
who recently sold out the Berlin Columbia Hall with their gripping
rock'n roll sounds. The best in Indie folk rock is guaranteed by
Mighty Oaks, three Berliners-by-choice with
Further acts include the English rock duo in "White
Stripes" manner Blood Red Shoes, the Swedish
Indie formation Friska Viljor, the Dutch rock band
Birth of Joy, the west coast garage rockers
Allah-Las as well as Talisco, Abay, BRNS,
Suns of Thyme and Syd Arthur.
Unfortunately Annenmaykantereit are no longer
part of the line-up.
The Pure&Crafted Festival, however, stands for a whole lot
more than just the love of great rock sound. Next to the
double-venue musical program, the hall of the “Postbahnhof” is
turned into an urban-scene market place with hand-made products on
offer as well as exhibitors and workshops which the New Heritage
culture come alive.
Be it the painstakingly hand-crafted leather goods by the
Berlin-based workshop Emma Opitz, the legendary
hats and caps by the Stetson brand founded in 1865
or the sought-after diamond-look stocking collections by
Burlington, this sample of fashion brands who will
be present with small showrooms and shows, already provide a
promising taste of all that is to come at the Pure&Crafted
Among other exhibitors, there is the Gestalten
Verlag, the chronicler of and impulse generator for visual
culture as well as the two friends Harry Brack and Frank Damson, who
- with their Berlin project Harry Damson Speedshop
- will bring a passion for art and crafts to the festival, too.
To make sure visitors can preserve their look and style after
dancing the night away, the hair and beard care product
manufacturers Oak and Mühle
Shaving as well as a barber will be on hand.
First-class food and drink will be available from exclusive
food-trucks & bars to round off the experience for all the senses.
The outdoor area is fully dedicated to the topic of
"Motorcycles": Apart from the motorcycle hellrider show in
the legendary Motodrome as well as numerous custom bike garages,
there will also be test rides and a Festival Bike Build-Off. The
lottery for the Pure&Crafted Festival Bikes on Saturday evening
will be a big highlight, too.
The Pure&Crafted Festival is moving from the original event
location Ferropolis to the Postbahnhof site. This means that the
first edition of the festival will take place in the urban melting
pot of Berlin, where trends and subcultures are created, grow and
are lived and where music is at the root of big-city life.
