International Festival of Avant-garde Jazz & Experimental Music

31. JULI – 03. AUGUST 2019 | BERLIN

With Colin Stetson, Matana Roberts, Moor Mother, Natalie Sandtorv, Nils Petter Molvær, Gurls, Anguish (Dälek/Fire!/Faust), Groupshow!, Els Vandeweyer, Tristan Honsinger, Greg Fox, Jealousy Party, Lana Trio & JD Zazie and many more

The A L’ARME! Festival will be held this year for the seventh time. At the end of the July and the beginning of August, Berlin’s most daring festival, combining avant-garde jazz with experimental music and noise, will be thundering onto the stage with four days filled to the brim with music, improvisation, performance, interference, feedback and countless surprises. At Radialsystem and the Säälchen at Holzmarkt, the festival will be hosting a number of Germany-wide premiers and collaborations unlike anything the world has ever seen that blur the lines between jazz and dada, hip-hop and expressionism, real-time music and flux. Matana Roberts will spend an evening playing alongside with Nils Petter Molvær, Natalie Sandtorv and Groupshow (Jan Jelinek, Hanno Leichtmann, Andrew Pekler), Dälek’s ruthless raps will meet Mats Gustafsson’s tenor saxophone and the Krautrock of Faust, Moor Mother is bringing her collective Irreversible Entanglements, and Colin Stetson his rock-transcendence experience named Ex Eye. And those are just a few highlights of this year’s line-up that promises to change the way you listen to music and permanently expand your horizons over the course of four summer nights. Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must play music. And so we say: A L’ARME! Guaranteed to get you buzzing.
