All good things come in threes: the Maifeld Derby Festival (May 31 – June 2, 2013) in Mannheim will take place for the third time and attracts a lot of indie music fans. Even though the festival is in its infancy it is a hot tip for music addicts. This year the organizers surpass themselves with an awesome line up consists of German crowd pullers like THE NOTWIST and THEES UHLMANN as well as international top acts like EFTERKLANG from Denmark and WALLIS BIRD from Ireland. The third Maifeld Derby comes along with 50 artists in three days and offers a wide range of different variations of pop and indie music. The latest confirmations bear witness to the booker’s excellent taste: the american freak-folk-avantgarde sisters of COCOROSIE will delight the audience as well as the beloved indie-folk band DAUGHTER from the United Kingdom. In addition scene mavens will be pleased with the Swiss export SOPHIE HUNGER, the Swedish post-rock band IMMANU EL, emerging new comers like LESLIE CLIO and SEA + AIR and many more.

Maifeld Derby – Line-Up

If you have been part of the festival audience during the last two years, you know the unexampled atmosphere the Maifeld Derby comes up with – if not you should definitely get to know it. You should get to know the main stage in a huge circus tent. You should get to know the Parcours d’amour – home of the singer songwriters and speaker’s desk for the writers who will also be part of the Maifeld Derby’s line up. You should also get to know the other two open air stages where you can enjoy the sun which hopefully will shine as strong as in the last two years.

Beside the impressing line up and the lovely decorated festival area the Maifeld Derby scores with regional catering and the sustainability project “Greener Maifeld Derby” in cooperation with the Green Music Initiative and the pop academy Baden-Württemberg. Already for the second time it was nominated for the EFA Green Operation Award within the scope of the European Festival Awards and was voted for the Top 5 most sustainable and responsible-minded festivals in Europe.
