We Have Band
Dockville Festival, 2012
Around midnight we meet We Have Band in the backstage area of Dockville Festival. Not long ago they were still on stage, playing a powerful festival show. Then the London trio gave a lot of interviews and now after a long and busy day they are still in good spirits. Looking for a quiet and illuminated spot for the acoustic session, we end up in the basement. The hallway, though a bit rough and shabby, offer a nice acoustics for an inspired rendition of „Shift“. With this stripped down session We Have Band prove how little it needs for a full-sounding and infectious performance.
MS Dockville is an annual music & arts festival in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg. Surrounded by water, ships and impressive granary buildings the festival in Hamburg’s harbour area offers much more than just listening to live music: During the weeks before the big event artists from all over the world live and work on the festival area and create a huge open air exhibition including useable sculptures, self-made wooden constructions, installations and other projects that enrich the festival experience and create a unique venue. With Lüttville and Teenville there are also projects for kids and teenagers happening on the festival grounds. The music festival itself has continuously grown since its first edition 2007 and features six stages and floors with more than 120 bands and DJ’s, including (in 2012) Hot Chip, Maximo Park, Metronomy and James Blake.
