Have you ever heard of “Krautrock“? It’s a specific German kind of rock music, which originated in the late 1960ies. The term was attributed to the music of this time by the English-speaking world but it was “adopted” in Germany, too. The term reflected the reception of the music at the time and was not a reference to any one particular scene, style, or movement – many krautrock artists were not familiar with one another.
One mastermind of Krautrock is the drummer Mani Neumeier, head of “Guru Guru” an organiser of the famous event Finkenbach Festival”, since the early 1970ies. This year the festival will take place on two days, 15th and 16th, August 2014. A special highlight, besides the madatory performance of “Guru Guru” will be the last concert of “Kraan”, which is one of the most praised Krautrock band.
Over the two days all around the festival stage, a huge free camping site is offered, some of the fans arrive days before the festival and begin to celebrate their festival of peace & love and great music. The location of the festival is 35 km from Heidelberg, up the river Neckar and some km in a side valley. Beautiful location with authentic Odenwald-feeling in the nature.
