IN THE BEGINNING, THERE WAS NO BEGINNING
KILBI OUT OF THE BLUE
"Usually closed". It takes a certain kind of serenity. A DJ walks past a bar. The virus is the problem. The clubs, the concerts, we miss them everywhere. Gina the dog too. It's nice here anyway.
Have you ever been to Düdingen without Kilbi? It's too inoffensive to be hated. Too quiet to be liked. An ideal place to have a stroll outside the box. To be breaking some rules. Such as the rules of a festival. The chance of creativity. A lot is still up in the air. Kilbi and Company are planned. Cancelled and arranged. Getting compensation is not exactly easy, but luckily it exists. Shifts with or without words. Underground is a long-lasting product. Procurement originality and patience are required. We are playing along; we keep on working. The music scene needs each other. Every little activity matters. The support and enthusiasm from our loyal and generous fans, from our team and our volunteers is here. Something comes back from there, we can all be prepared for that.
Right behind us, the sweet Saane flows through the waters of the Lake of Schiffenen. We remain resistant, humble and optimistic, we are looking forward to what is on the way, and whatever changes shall remain true. It would be unreasonable to still be listening to the same music as thirty years ago. A little riminization on the beach is most certainly welcome.
Today is a real diary day without a diary entry. At some point and somehow every line-up has to be released. Whether it is happening, or whether land is in sight. As long as it hangs in there somewhere, in the streets, in shops or in a virtual space, we’re painting over it. Like we used to do with old tapes. Now we are rerecording memories. So as not to forget the others.
THE BAD BONN KILBI 2021 FROM 3-5. JUNE IS CANCELLED!
FROM 1ST TO 5TH SEPTEMBER THERE WILL BE A NEW KIND OF KILBI-21.
NEWS ON THE PROGRAMME AND TICKET PURCHASE BY MID-JULY AT THE LATEST.
Kilbi-September! In normality, we couldn’t have pulled this off. Will it change history? It will change autumn. Improvising is like composing spontaneously, which suits us fine. We were never gifted by concept really. Each day and its surprises have space for at least a few supporting roles. We are looking forward to this attempt.
For Bad Bonn Kilbi from 1.-5. September 2021, we are starting from scratch. We will be conceiving and presenting a reduced offer with a smaller number of acts, bands, installations, collaborations within an adapted infrastructure including stages.
It seems important to us, almost normal in fact, that we will be inviting all acts that were confirmed in the context of the two cancelled editions 2020 and 2021 to one of the upcoming editions of Bad Bonn Kilbi, if possible. By 2023 they all should all have played at our festival. And then we'll continue anyway.
From or since April 14th, you are free to browse our Kilbi website and to find out about the cancelled Kilbi edition in June or about what may come in September. Get lost in waiting. Press the button, release. Breathe in and breathe out again. Press pause and listen to the songs and sounds of the musicians who were invited to Kilbi in June 2021. It's a nice mix of pop, rap, electronics, niche, mainstream, obscure-experimental, post-punk, installations and it even hides some world premieres. A little more than half of these names were already in the 2020 edition.
By the way. 2020, 2021 are not postcodes. They belong together like all of us. And even after the pandemic, we will think about walks in nature during concerts. Paradise emphasizes talent. And it's just around the corner from here.
31 Kilbis, trente je crois tours par minute or time to send used letters. It will be anders. Vivement la Faute Future! Sit down as soon as the music starts! Puissance, Volume, Colours, Bilder!
We are looking forward to Kilbi in September! We’ll keep you up to date. Are the essentials of this editorial reasonably understandable?
Honestly welcome, thank you very much and best regards
