To say that Freedom Sounds is a great festival is not enough. Before we tell you exactly what happened during the memorable last weekend of April in Cologne, Magdalena prepared her Top 5.
Last weekend was gonna be great and I knew that way before it started. First Gdańsk Ska Jamboree was already fantastic and for its second edition promoters planned so much great bands from abroad, that it was even remotely imposssible to imagine, that something could go wrong.
During the last few years German festival This Is Ska has earned itself the name of one of the most anticipated summer music events. Promoters who consistently invite Jamaican stars from so called top shelf, great ogranization and perfect atmosphere unreachable for most of similar parties – these are the reasons for which ska fest in Rosslau takes up the key place in holidays’ calendar. It was no different this time. Even though twelve months passed, memories of last year’s performances of Stranger & Patsy or Judge Dread Memorial were still alive. When information about The Tennors gig planned for next edition appeared, there was no place for doubts anymore. Rosslau, we’re coming.
