The Protain Christmas Ball Festivals 2010

The Christmas Ball Festivals 2010:
Hannover – Cologne – Würzburg – Berlin

Last December more than 4.000 enthusiastic fans experienced a musical Christmas celebration of a special kind with the Christmas Ball Festivals. Enthralling concerts in Cologne and Würzburg, a sold out venue in Hannover and top-class live acts, guaranteed for three nights that left no wish unfulfilled.

In 2010 the Christmas Ball Festivals are heading for the German clubs again. In addition to the known stations, Berlin will join the tour for the first time.

The tour starts on 26.12. at the CAPITOL HANNOVER. On 27.12. the festival trek moves on to COLOGNE’s “THEATER AM TANZBRUNNEN”, followed by the “POSTHALLE” in WÜRZBURG on 28.12., before BERLIN prepares for the final showdown at “HUXLEY´s NEUE WELT” on 29.12.2010.

PROGRAMME:

After their successfully performed „Tanzomat Fulltimeshow“-Tour in fall 2010 AND ONE take over the leading role of the evening for the 26.12. in Hannover, in order to turn the Capitol into a Christmas dance palace with one of their legendary shows. However AND ONE are scheduled to play only in Hannover.

Not playing in Hannover are FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM, who will join the Christmas Ball Tour on 27.12. in Cologne to take over the headlining position for the remaining shows. The exceptional British band, lead by the majestic ceremonial master Carl McCoy, haven´t lost anything of their fascination in more than 25 years. Instead, like a good wine, they evolved to a state of perfection. Powerful, intense and full of magic, the NEPH´s well chosen concerts, more than ever, are inspiring experiences for eyes, ears and soul, catching you from the very first moment, taking you on a journey into their world.

Copied many times, but never quite reached the next band of the Christmas Ball 2010 remains unique as well: PROJECT PITCHFORK. Thus the hanseatic are always on spot when it comes to clothing philosophical themes into a powerful, danceable web of sounds. At times uncompromisingly straightforward, then again on a well chosen detour around the core, Peter Spilles and his crew are masters of a well-crafted symbiosis of driving electronic sounds, garnished with gritty industrial riffs.

Looking at LAIBACH, the third band in the bundle, words won´t suffice to describe their style. Apart from all conventions the slovenian artist collective wanders a path between post-industrial elements, EBM, the spirit of the 1980´s and an enormous amount of courage to pick up unconventional concepts, such as the re-interpretation of various national anthems („Volk“), or their effort „Laibachkunstderfuge“, paying tribute to the original works of Johann Sebastian Bach.

For a well-tempered start, the opening of the Christmas Ball Festivals 2010 is left to the young and the wild. Thus Berlin´s „Aggro-Disco“-kings AGONOIZE are also waiting to be let of the chain, like FADERHEAD from Hamburg, who recently stirred up the clubs with his smasher “TZDV (Tanz! Zwo, Drei, Vier!)“.

After the live-shows the DJ´s take over the dancefloor for the official aftershowparty. Further info will be announced soon.
