Location: Alte Kranfabrik Ehrenfeld, Cologne
Dates: 30 Nov.—2 Dec. 2012

This year WEEK-END will be held in a former crane factory in the Cologne district of Ehrenfeld from 30 November to 2 December.

One weekend in a unique location with 2 floors and once again a strictly limited number of tickets.
Concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. and are followed on Friday and Saturday by after-show parties until 5 a.m., with DJ sets by Alexis Taylor (HOT CHIP), Justus Köhncke, Baris K amongst others.

The American Indie-rock legend Stephen Malkmus (PAVEMENT) will perform CAN’s pioneering album “EGE BAMYASI” live together with members of local band VON SPAR; a one-off performance on the 40th anniversary of its release in the internationally revered krautrock band’s hometown.

“Not many festivals have Ian Svenonius, Green Gartside, Justus Köhncke and Steve Malkmus sharing the bill. It will be a delight to take part, let alone watch the backstage socio-political discussions unfold!”
(Alexis Taylor, Hot Chip)
