Myfest Kreuzberg

Myfest Kreuzberg, one of the reasons why I live here.


In Hamburg, my absolute favorite festival of the harbor birthday was. I feverishly every year already days and weeks previously pointed out, and i loved it, there to wander from music stage music stage and see new music and well-known. I am particularly enthusiastic always the underground stages in the Bernhard Nocht Strasse, Punk bands, Sound Systems, Reggae, Hip Hop and everything just not sponsored by a major beer manufacturer or radio station. This music is somehow more real, and visitors are also exciting.

In Berlin there are similar, only without port and without Becks stages. The Myfest Kreuzberg. Already last year I was there – mostly at the stage Coretex – and generally quite enthusiastic. I know otherwise no street party, where so many different people and styles of music in such a mass meet.

Already last year I was on 1. Mai um 12 Clock from “Germany must die” aroused, because the revolutionary 1. May day demo starts on the square in front of my apartment. The Slime with but seems to be a ritual, because this year they woke me up again with Slime to me then to explain, that “the system has to go” and only the Communist world revolution would help us… na denn. That she has shown in the past.

Nundenn, los gings nerve did, the big stage on the Oranienplatz made before a whole lot of sound checks then it really took off. As I said with musical styles, as they could not be more different. On stage just struggled a wannabe gangster rapper before his few gangster rappers friends and some visitors from throughout 50 Meters punks “Greek wine danced played by a brass band…

For me it was the reason to get up and at night to visit the Myfest Kreuzberg, vollzufressen me and to move from one stage to the next – and there were many stages. Gangster rapper, Brass bands, Rhythm Congo, Songwriter, Soul votes, Human Beatboxes, Reggae Soundsystems, House DJ’s, Turkish folklore, Hardcorebands, Punk bands, Skabands, Hip-Hopper, Folk bands. I forgot what? Certainly 12 Platforms + various places for music without stage. Great for someone like me.

At dinner it was similar, you think a country we certainly got them something to eat – somewhere. The interesting thing Myfest Kreuzberg but the little commercial painting. Of course, the bands cost money, but they were not sponsored by a drinks manufacturer, there were no external provider but every shop has contributed his contribution to Myfest. And all this had quite a political reference to the left of the center-right. So i like it.

Amazing also, I've actually seen all day until the evening hours on the Myfest no police, even, as the notorious “18 Uhr Demo” moved peacefully through Myfest

I Marx did not simply

As I said, the Myfest Kreuzberg is one of the reasons, why I like living here.

Myfest an der Core Tex Bühne

Core Tex – The best stage of Myfest 2008.

For me, only one stage was on the Myfest actually really important. Die Core Tex Bühne. Core Tex is a record store, the only punk, Sold Hardcore and related music. Similarly, then, the program was on stage Punk, Will, Rocksteady lastig. The stage was located right at the entrance of the Orange Street and marked the completion of a Myfestes.



Because of the music gathered in front of the stage just all people, the order could start something, Punk, Rockabillys, link Skins, normal Personen, a few goths, an illustrious mix so such a compilation can be found in Hamburg just in the hill or on St. Pauli. This was the largest collection of ornate mohawk hairstyles, I have since FC St. Pauli rescuers saw festival.


Speaking of this club. You could also imagine, you had to actually be somewhere in Hamburg. St. Pauli Patch, Sticker, Buttons, Shirts, Caps, Jerseys, Jackets. The whole Fanarsenal was there to see and Yes! I felt at home.

Now that's commonly the clientele, which is ascribed sometimes also left violence, but strictly speaking not particularly changed in front of stage much, as a backstage once ascended to pistols and police sirens wailed.


Knapp 50 Meters behind the stage began to 23:00 then that the playing field for the May Festival. There were stones thrown, Open glass containers and tend not made the calls to the police result.

From time to time one of the rioters then fled into the street festival, what the police then prompting times with just 50 armored police officers to attend the street festival to withdraw then a few minutes later.


The band plays, during 50 helmeted, armed and armored police hooligans to pursue a Myfest and nobody cares really. Somehow an equally bizarre situation, as Demo am Nachmittag.


Well stones were thrown and then still behind the stage there was a lot of excitement. Press helmeted men sought Photos, Police moved in turtle formation advance, the whole battlefield was illuminated by huge police lights and a lot of onlookers watched the whole thing. …Somehow it had something very staged.


I did, however, rather then at the stage with the music and Strongbow Cider. A tasty stuff. From half past twelve were only DJ music and the stage was dismantled quickly…. Half past one, than two Grünbehelmte discontinued the event the stage was almost gone. Perhaps no record, but close to it. Then I went home.

Whether something has happened? I do not think, because 32 !!! Police car, that stood by the Oranienplatz around and count out my proof were, moved for a while not move.


Conclusion: Core Tex stage was great, people also, there is little happening and Strongbow Cider tastes great.
