FESTIVAL HISTORY + VENUE INFO
Since 2007 Denovali Records curates and organizes an international music festival called Denovali Swingfest. The first editions took place in Essen, Germany – since 2013 Denovali presents similar events in London and Berlin. The name Swingfest is an homage to the Swing Kids being active during the Nazi dictatorship. Focussed on various forms of experimental and adventurous music the lineup offers a wonderful opportunity to discover a wide range of international Denovali artists live and is rounded off by various renowned non-label guest artists. A hallmark of the festival is the renunciation of the headliner principle: all artists are receiving the same attention – the length of each artist’s concert is equal. In addition to the musical program the festival features yearly changing specials like an experimental film cinema, installations or lectures.
In the past years artists like Sunn O))), William Basinski, Murcof, Andy Stott, Fennesz, Tim Hecker, Hauschka, Biosphere, Emika, Barn Owl, Nils Frahm, Floex, Ulrich Schnauss, Hidden Orchestra, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, Bohren und der Club Of Gore, Bersarin Quartett or Nadja performed at the festival.

VENUE DAY 1: Village Underground
Village Underground is a multi-purpose space for creativity and culture in the heart of East London, part creative community, part arts venue and has opened its doors in 2007. The main Village Underground centre is housed in a renovated turn-of-the-century warehouse primed for everything from concerts and club nights to exhibitions, theatre, live art and other performances. High above Great Eastern Street, atop the venue, four recycled Jubilee line train carriages and shipping containers make up the creative studios of Village Underground. Music-wise, indie, electronic, experimental, hip-hop and much more besides could potentially feature on any given night at Village Underground. www.villageunderground.co.uk
VENUE DAY 2: Cafe Oto
Cafe OTO opened in April 2008 with the aim of providing a home for creative new music that exists outside of the mainstream. Cafe OTO is comprised of one large cafe/performance space open during the day as a cafe and hosting an evening programme of adventurous live music almost seven nights a week. A fine home for a wide range of experimental music. www.cafeoto.co.uk
