The time for the annual VibraCrunch festival is getting closer each day. Put an X in your calendar on August 22nd – music starts at 6:30 pm and since smaller and bigger bands are mixed in no particular order, make sure you are there early so you DON’T miss your favorite band. Crunchy Frog has had the pleasure of setting up a slot at the Malmö Festival since 1999, where it all started out as a collaboration with Crunchy and our sister label from Malmö, Vibrafon (R.I.P.). During the years we have presented such excellent artists as: Junior Senior, Swan Lee, Rhonda Harris, Wynona, Glorybox, Diefenbach, Knallert, Dipper, Ray Wonder, First Floor Power, David and the Citizens, Ny Akustik, Revlon 9, Moonbabies, Quit Your Dayjob and of course all bands from the Crunchy family. This year we’ll celebrate our 5th anniversary – hence VibraCrunch V. As usual you can expect an outstanding set up with some of the coolest Danish and Swedish Indie bands you can imagine. The program is ready now. So feast your eyes on this golden and 100% FREE lineup (more details at the bottom):
We are most proud to present the band who hang out with Courtney Love and supermodel Helena Christensen, and has fans such as R.E.M, who dedicated one of their songs to the band at their recent gig at the Midtfyns Festival, DK. Their latest album ‘Frengers’ is a beautiful journey through dreamland and should be found on every night table in the universe!
FIRST FLOOR POWER(S)
One of Sweden’s best indie bands. The band has grown a great live audience in Scandinavia due to their constant touring. Signed to cool, Swedish indie label, Silence Records, they released their debut album, ‘There is Hope’ (produced by Jonas Jonasson of Bob Hund) in 2000. They got a new album out in late August.
Crunchy Frog’s very own pop/rock darlings. They always deliver A++++++ liveshows, but you probably already know that. If not… there is no excuse not to go see this amazing band in Malmö and their ONLY gig in the Øresund area this year!
LEARNING FROM LAS VEGAS (DK)
A well known secret from Crunchy Frog. This band plays beautiful indiepop and is about to release their third album this fall. Come out and see this fantastic band before everybody else starts talking ´bout ’em, and hear all their new songs before your lazy neighbour. He might have heard the single ‘Yale Keys’ which is already in heavy rotation on Danish radio, though!
DUB SWEDEN (S)
Dub Sweden from Stockholm has played at numerous clubs all over Sweden as well as big Rock festivals (e.g. Hultsfred in June). Their songs have been on high rotation throughout different radio stations in Sweden. Expect Rock, pop and…dub..??.
BABY WOODROSE (DK)
The opening act at this year’s Roskilde Festival. Probably Denmark’s next big export success, with their high energy, psychedelic Rock ´n Roll music. But first stop: Malmö.
Malmö’s very own Hank, plays Pop/Rock in an intensive and melodic way as only the swedes can do it and they are ready to conquer the world. Don’t miss it.
These guys play as if they were coming straigt outta the swamps of Southern Loisiana; playing catchy Rockabilly-garage-punk-country songs. Come and swing your asses off, or your mama will be very dissapointed.
This map shows the excact location of the site. It takes about 5 minutes to walk from the Central Station.
For Copenhageners it’s nice to know that the trains back to ol’ CPH departs every hour all through the night.
It’s free and no tickets are required – so just turn up in time to soak up all of the splendid music!
You can buy beer and food at the site, and of course records and t-shirts from all the bands that have any.
