This year our partner RockCity Hamburg hosted three bands from Excite at MS Dockville 2018. From August 17 to 19 the festival presented a colorful potpourri of artists and this year we welcomed the Danish duo Teenage Love, the Finnish artists Otto Kouvonen and the Swedish band Rome Is Not A Town. All EXCITE bands were accompanied by two professional photographers from Hamburg. The results are to be found here.
Within the funding by Creative Europe we also invited Anne Theimer and Daniel Andersson. Anne is a festival booker with one of Europe's biggest festival and tour agencies, FKP Scorpio. She met with all the bands, gave tips, tricks and an insight into her work and the world of festival booking. Daniel is a Swedish journalist with the magazine HYMN. He explored the festival grounds and wrote an elaborate article about the festival and the bands. Read here!
All in all another good year inviting artists to Hamburg in place and already looking forward to doing it again next year.
