It’s an unbeatable combination: from 2nd to 4th June it’s time for wine, live music and delicacies in Staufen again. On the weekend after Pentecost, Staufen’s city center is all about feasting, wine and music as part of “Wine and Music”.
For three days, winegrowers and restaurateurs determine the picture on the streets and squares of the historic old town. And on the stages on the market square, on Kronenplatz and at the Weinbrunnen there is live music from Friday to Sunday evening. The popular street festival goes back to the reopening of the Baden Wine Route, entry is free.
“As always, the musical arc will be wide,” promises the first chairman of the Staufen trade association, Wolfgang Dorst. From varieties of rock ‘n’ roll, earthy blues or elegant café house music to funky soul and rock-jazz or energetic Mediterranean sounds. Proven audience favorites are just as committed as ensembles and soloists, who are new discoveries and can be experienced for the first time in Staufen.
For example the Sicilian entertainer and double bass artist Nick Bisognano, better known as Rockin’ Carbonara, who will be on stage on Friday, June 2nd from 9:30 p.m. on Kronenplatz. The way he cooks together a number of rock ‘n’ roll styles into his very own rockabilly sauce is almost unique.
Or the hip-hop border crossers around the twins Till and Felix von Zweierpasch. On Saturday, June 3, from 9:30 p.m., they mix languages and genres on the market square: melodic beats meet electro sounds with German-French lyrics. As globetrotters, they rap about life on the border, about everyday racism and resistance. The musicians from Freiburg/Strasbourg have impressed on tours in Africa, Asia and Europe. In Paris they received the Adenauer-de-Gaulle Prize, were Freiburg’s Band of the Year and shared the stage with rock legend Udo Lindenberg.
On Saturday, June 3rd, from 8 p.m. at the Weinbrunnen, Cover Nostra will bring proven rock and pop songs from the past four decades to the stage, musically very close to the original, with feeling and a lot of love for detail. The singer and the five boys play whatever rocks and is fun.
Kalles Kaviar from Basel have been playing traditional Jamaican ska, rocksteady and early reggae since 1996. The riddims bang precisely between dancing melodies and the hooks mercilessly hit the heart. It is impossible for someone to remain unmoved or even go home after the first round. Kalles caviar is a party and it always goes on. They will be on stage on Friday, June 2, from 7 p.m. on the market square.
As always, the organizers ask visitors to refrain from using their cars if possible and to come to the Fauststadt by public transport or by bike.
