NORDEN - the nordic arts festival

NORDEN Festival 2023 // First artists

Only a few weeks until the turn of the year, but we are already in the late summer of 2023. 5 years NORDEN Festival, we will celebrate! We are very happy to present you the first artists for the anniversary edition today. As always with regional highlights and great surprises from the Northern European countries. You can look forward to it!

And so that we can escape the icy winter at least for a few minutes, we give you below a few memories of great days in late summer, of very special moments with friends and family - our NORDEN family. Be sure to check it out!

On the first festival weekend (August 24 - 27, 2023), the Danish sister duo PRISMA will be our guests at the Königswiesen. Having caught the attention of all of Scandinavia last year, it's time for them to shake up the NORDEN audience with their two-part vocals mixed with a minimalist production of loud guitars and electronic soundscapes.

Another highlight from Denmark is the band TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT & ANYANKOFO from Aarhus. With their wild mixture of jazz, afro-beat, reggae, soul and pop, connected by the ever-present brass section, they have already rocked several festivals in Northern Europe. The Hamburg musicians DENIZ & OVE will give a concert for children and parents on the first weekend of the festival. Finally, there is children's music that parents will also like! And on this premise, it's now off to the ball pool with Karacho!

The second festival weekend (August 31 - September 03, 2023) has a big surprise in store. With SVAVAR KNÚTUR from Iceland, a NORDEN artist of the first hour comes to the Königswiesen with new songs. He manages with ease and overflowing sympathy to enchant and carry away every audience from the first moment. He presents his songs in an extremely touching way and tells the most absurd stories and jokes in between. The band MAKE A MOVE features horns in tutus, bass and guitar pumping out the groove, and it's all pushed along by a rapping drummer in a bathing suit. Sounds over the top? It is.

With M. BYRD we bring a great newcomer from Hamburg to Schleswig on the third festival weekend (07 - 10 September 2023). His timeless songs shine with a sense of strength, transport listeners* to the American West Coast and radiate melancholic future and euphoric youth. And when ANNIE CHOPS enters the stage with her cherry-red Flying-V guitar, it only takes a few moments for her to win over the entire audience. She doesn't need much more than her radiant personality, her extraordinary talent and her unique songs.

The festival's literature section also looks promising. For her new novel manuscript, JANINE ADOMEIT received the working scholarship of the Cultural Foundation of the State of Schleswig-Holstein. At the NORDEN Festival she will read from her first novel Vom Versuch, einen silbernen Eal zu fangen. STEFFEN TRUMPF writes in his novel Ellivu Freunde müsst ihr sein about the legendary passion for soccer on the Faroe Islands.
In his thriller Blizzard, ROBERT BRAACK writes grippingly about the snow disaster in December and January 1978/79 in northern Germany. An ice-cold planned robbery stirs up deadly passion. Author MONA HARRY will read from her book Mutproben on the first weekend of the festival. In the interactive reading for children, she asks "What is courage, anyway? What does it smell like? What color is courage and is the same thing courageous for everyone?"

Last but not least, in the field of street theater, we announce a real highlight. With their KOFFERZIRKUS, the artists will create a very special encounter on the first festival weekend. The combination of mimic theater, juggling and acrobatics creates poetic stories.

Do you also long for that unique, magical feeling on the King's Meadows when we celebrate the NORTH together in bright sunshine? In this cold and dark season we give you memories of great days in late summer, of very special moments with friends and family - our NORDEN family.
Be sure to check out the film from our partner KAIPS Marketing!

We wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a great start into the new year! We can't wait to celebrate with you again,

At the Future of Festivals, Philine gave a presentation on accessibility at festivals, including the NORDEN Festival.
