The Line-up of the 5th blacksheep bandcontest, which will take place on Saturday, 7th April, starting at 7 pm (admission 6 pm) in the Bonfelder Bislandhalle, is coming soon!
The submission deadline for the newcomer bands is over. The evaluation is running.
We publish the names of the bands, who are fighting for the FÖRCH Newcomer Award on 7th April as well as for a performance at the 5th blacksheep Festival on Saturday, 9th June, in a few days. In the meantime one band has been presented, who impressed us at the 2rd blacksheep bandcontest in 2015, and who has developed a lot in the meantime: Drive Darling.
Highlight of the year 2018 is the 5th blacksheep Festival, Thursday, 7th June, till Saturday, 9th June around Bonfeld Castle. Headliners are Frontm3n, Gotthard, Stefanie Heinzmann und die Levellers, Mighty Oaks, Wishbone Ash and Brother Dege (Django unchained). We have all in all 19 Bands, playing on three stages. Talents and legends.
The Headliners Headliner is Passenger ak Mike Rosenfeld (“Let her go”). Like ed Sheeran he is one of the most successful british songwriters, and we are as proud to present him as we are happy to have so many wonderful artists at our lovely festival.
Mighty Oaks is the headliner of our festival Saturday: The Band with one American, one British and one Italian has their base in Berlin, became well known for their album “Howl” and is playing regularly sold out concerts. So the line up for the 5th blacksheep festival is completed.
with an almost sold-out Advent concert and a great performance of the Young Voices, the blacksheep year ended in an atmospheric mood. We look forward to seeing you at our kick-off event on Saturday, 6th January, from 3.30 pm in the Bonfelder Bislandhalle.
In the Bislandhalle we present our annual program and our festival trailer, we sell tickets for the Cubanian Night on Sunday, 21st January, 8 pm, in the Kurhaus in Bad Rappenau. And we spend nice hours with you on culture, coffee and cake.
Until our next reunion we wish you a nice Advent season. Before Christmas, we will announce on December 17 our top act for the festival Saturday, 9th June.
Our Bookers have signed the remaining contracts this week. As a result we have a celebration (or jubilation) present for you all: At the 5th blacksheep Festival, from Thursday, 7th June, till Saturday, 9th June, we invited not only 18, we booked 19 bands. You wanna know which one that is?
What a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful Charity Night!
We would like to thank all those who made this unusual event possible: you as our great audiance, the big Help for little Heroes, who gave us the good reason for the Charity Night, all our sponsors, our helpers and our artists, Chris Thompson, Albert Hammond, Julia Neigel, Fools Garden, Bananafishbones, Dante Thomas and David Hanselmann, his group Risk and Jimmi Love and his Praise Family.
