Play Nordic - Berlin 2014

Play Nordic. July 4th – Oct 1st. Five Nordic embassies invite to Berlin’s Felleshus to the event series with concerts, design exhibitions, workshops, and movie nights. Felleshus will be the showroom of Nordic design- and music. No matter if you are interested in contemporary design or music you’ll get an insight into Northern Europe’s culture.

NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION presents and highly recommends Play Nordic. On July 3rd the event will kick off with its opening party. Nadja Chatti will spin the turntables and Danish electronic music king, KASPER BJØRKE, will play a concert. We are pretty sure that some songs from BJØRKE forthcoming album After Forever can be heard.

Sign up to the list to attend the opening party.

On July 5th, another great Play Nordic event takes place: ‘Crazy Iceland’. This seemingly quiet country has, in relation to its small population, one of the highest concentrations of artists, painters, writers and musicians in the world. We don’t have to tell you that artists like BJÖRK, SIGUR RÓS, MÚM, SÓLEY, AGENT FRESCO, and VÖK are only few of the many Icelandic artists, right? Again and again the country produces internationally successful artists. But what are the sources of inspiration for these people? Surely not only the breathtaking nature. What exactly shapes the dark and often eccentric musicians, who find their way so often into the hearts of the world’s music lovers? Play Nordic will bring together the craziest Icelanders to let them tell the audience about their lives on this wondrous island, their art and their respective visions.

‘Crazy Iceland’ will be moderated by Nabil Atassi (physician and journalist), Sigtryggur Baldursson (musician and director Iceland Music Export), Lárus Jóhannesson (12 Tónar Label & Store Founder), Dögg Guðmundsdóttir (designer), Mundi Vondi (artists, fashion designers and computer games Kreator), Auður Jónsdóttir (author), and Guðný Guðmundsdóttir (musician and festival director). Furthermore there will be special guests from the Extreme Chill festival: Jóhann Ómarsson (Skurken), Stefán Ólafsson (Steve Sampling), Jónas Þór Guðmundsson (Ruxpin).

Dates: July 4th – Oct 1st 2014
Location: Felleshus, Rauchstraße 1, Tiergarten Berlin
