The concert on the 15th November has been postponed due to some regulations of the City of Braunschweig. It will be held one day later - on the 16th November. The tickets are of course still valid!

"The Mayor of Braunschweig announced that it would not be possible to have any dance events on the 15th or the 22nd of November.

11.02.2009 - Pluswelt Festival VII & VIII

Friday, 03.04.2009

Plus 1 Support

Saturday, 04.04.2009

DE/VISION (electronic set)

Admission always at 19.00, beginning 19.40

Kulturfabrik, Dießemer Str. 13, 47799 Krefeld.

Some information about the bands performing:

So far the name TENEK was only well known to some avid MYSPACE users. Behind this project, are the British duo Pete Steer and none less than Geoff Pinckney, by trade the live keyboardist of today's main act: MESH. "Stateless" is their latest album and "Where's the time?" their single which will be presented after having already supported THE HUMAN LEAGUE and CLIENT in England on Saturday for the first time.
NUNIQ (formerly NUN) are from the Polish Wroclaw. The duo sees themselves clearly as a dance-pop-project. Excellent synth-pop-tracks and a cover of NIGHTWISH's "Nemo" invite the audience to dance, and their show is hopefully the beginning of their way up in Germany.

The Greeks of MARSHEAUX are already known for supporting CLIENT and for playing various festivals. Though their album "Peek-A-Boo" which might please all 80s pop lovers was already released some time ago MARSHEAUX, just like the two acts before, have never performed at the Kulturfabrik.

But that is different for the next act. With 10 years of PLUSWELT PROMOTION, this year marks the 20th stage anniversary of DE/VISION. They have already been the main acts of the PLUSWELT festivals in 2004 and 2006 adding drums and guitars to their live set. After touring twice in North and South America and gigging at quite exotic regions like Russia, Bulgaria, Israel or Mexico, the two Berliners now enact their electronic set on German stages. On Saturday evening DE/VISION present the finest electro pop from their 20 year history, from their first album in 1994 through "Noob" in 2007.

The main act of the evening can be described as true regular guests of the Kulturfabrik. Besides the English quartet declared that venue as their favourite. Their performances there were always crowned with success. In 2007, the band's first live-DVD was even shot there and without any doubt Krefeld was chosen once more to present the new single "Everything I made" as well as further new tracks which will be released later this year. Electro-pop with a British touch and rock elements, that is MESH! It was 1997 when those Bristol guys were onstage in the Kufa for the very first time. From that time on the venue cannot be imagined without having MESH participating. MESH perform their full set of old and new material.

After the festival there will be an After-Show-Party with well-known DJs.

Tickets for either Friday, Saturday or both days can be ordered at:
as well as at all known ticket agencies.
