Dockville, Hamburg's annual festival of music and art, will take place for the thirteenth time in 2019 - with an unprecedented presentation of visual art and musical line-up, the small independent Dockville team will set new standards this year with the "Open-Air-Festival" format.
Not only the unique city centre location of the festival with its great combination of urban industrial charm and natural elements such as water (Elbe), green meadow and birch groves provide a very unconventional festival feeling. There is also a diverse musical programme presented on as many as seven stages and venues, which is a cornerstone for this that combines both local and established artists jwith young and talented artists. In the past few years, the MS DOCKVILLE Art Camp in Hamburg has earned itself an international reputation as a place where artists from all over the world live and work creatively together. This process is finally being made accessible to the general public in the form of an open air exhibition with various artistic events and media formats. It is its own small microcosm, in which many projects overlap and mutually enrich each other. The end of the three-day MS DOCKVILLE Festival represents the culmination of the summer, with over 130 musical acts and more than 22,000 visitors in this gently growing art camp-microcosm, creating a charming atmosphere for the music and art festival with its many buildings, installations and wondrous places. The detailed line-up and the complementary programme of the MS DOCKVILLE Festival and of the art camp will be prepared and published over the next few months.
