6:00pm - 7:00pm: KAFKAS - Pop, Electro and Punk Spirit
In a time when it seems to be getting harder and harder to sell physical records, it is not necessarily the safest option to release an album without a bigger record label in the back. Nevertheless, KAFKAS decided to release the 6th album again on their own label despite the available offers. Low budget, no prestige and limited capacities, but full passion, firm convictions and a self-confident sound carrier - these are the ingredients. In the case of KAFKA, the courage has more than paid off. And so the results are well above all expectations. But that is not what this is all about. What the volume means something is not primarily measured and expressed in numbers.
Apart from the sales figures, the band could also look forward to nice stories and experiences. The last single was chosen as the personal wedding song at at least two weddings. Both times the bridal ladies heard the song on the radio and found that this was exactly the right wedding song. A great honour, the band finds.
Is the mixture of pop, NDW, electro and punk spirit just a niche and section music? If, then probably only because of chronic underestimation - but certainly not because of a lack of positive feedback from listeners or viewers. If KAFKAS got a chance, the feedback is almost always very good to almost euphoric. This was also proven by their appearances on Hessen Television, a shoot with RTL, an entry on SAT 1, a place 1 in MTV's Rockzone, as well as mountains of listener mail from convinced radio listeners. Now Mathias Jakobs (Milky Chance) versions of "Was dir fehlt" and Christoph Mengeler's video clip are ready to go. The single can already be heard in the Mc Donalds stores. As a special there is a version with the friendly horns of the'Heimatklänge Giesel'. Hooray!KAFKAS - 'Was dir fehlt'.
7:15pm - 8:00pm: HYLL - Stoner Rock
Bloody fingers, smashed sticks, drops of sweat soak the floor and walls... "Incredibly explosive [...] they won't let you down!" is how the BBC radio described this band. HYLL is concentrated energy, which is collected by the three members on stage, in order to overwhelm the audience. They stopped in England for several shows in the summer of 2018 and toured Germany in 2017. All that remained was sweat, stretched neck muscles and burnt earth. The style can be described as a modern kind of Stoner Rock; a mixture of grooving beats, catchy vocals and explosive outbursts. The listeners become aware of the common passion of the members by the time of the jams at the latest. As an integral part of the live shows, the improvised, heartfelt spontaneous fireworks belong to HYLL shows, like the astonished rubbing of the listener's eyes and ears after every gig. HYLL - an experience.

7:00pm - 8:00pm: A pro-intersectional approach in the fight for animal rights with Honey LaBronx, Vegan Drag Queen (in English)
The fight for social justice is as old as humankind. Yet in the late 1960’s the black feminist movement revealed that our varying identities can intersect, causing unique forms of oppression to be experienced within subsets of oppressed communities.
This speech will focus on what a pro-intersectional approach makes available to those fighting for animal rights, and how educating ourselves about the suffering experienced by our fellow humans can make us better advocates for the animals. It will highlight the unintentional failings of the mainstream vegan approach, as well as how we can increase our effectiveness.
By aligning ourselves with other social justice movements, audiences will discover how greater compassion for our fellow humans could mean animal liberation in our lifetime.
