Denovali Swingfest Essen full line-up confirmed


Denovali Records’ music festival Denovali Swingfest returns to Essen, Germany this October after making its London and Berlin debuts earlier this year, with a typically eclectic line-up of experimental and underground artists joining selected acts from the label’s roster.

The 2013 Essen event sees the festival continuing on its mission to bring an array of vastly diverse music under one roof, with Biosphere, Barn Owl, Troum, Tim Hecker, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble (as KilimanFuji) and Nadja amongst the many artists appearing over four days of the festival. As usual, each artist will play a full set of 60 minutes (see above for the full rundown).

And to whet your appetite, Denovali are offering a new 27-track free download sampler. Stream it now below, and download it from

Swingfest takes place at WeststadtHalle, Essen, Germany, 03-06 October 2013.
