The second Scope Festival will take place again in various locations throughout Berlin-Kreuzberg October 18th to 30th. In its second year, Scandinavian artists will perform anything from Jazz to Electronic, from Folk to Singer-Songwriter. And there is a lot to explore again. Jazz from Scandinavia in all its various genres and with all kinds of influences.
Try for example the group ADHD who Gina reviewed here a couple of years ago. The band from Iceland plays music as far-ranging and open wide as the land they come from (October 20th, Berghain Kantine). Jay-Jay Johanson from Sweden, influenced by Portishead and the trip-hop sounds from Bristol, will have his new album release concert during the festival (October 20th, Lido). Or what about the 7-piece collective Hess Is More from Denmark, celebrated with the Danish Music Award Jazz and the “Top 10 best music of the year” by Time Out Magazine New York (October 26th, Berghain Kantine).
A more familiar name will also appear: Nils Petter Molvaer will play music from his last album “Buoyancy” with his quartet and the typical mix of trumpet, electronics, effects combined with various guitars and banjos (October 22nd, Lido). Other clubs contributing in the festival are Monarch, Privatclub, Ölbergkirche, Prince Charles, and Huxleys.
