Zurich/Switzerland.
WE BUILD UP OUR LOCAL SCENE.

 

Ich treffe die Jungs vom ROADRAGE BOOKING an einem kalten Wintertag, um zum ersten Mal für xclusivx ein Porträt mit Bewegtbild zu machen. Hermann Dill ist all denen schon ein Begriff, die seine Rubrik “Kraft und Kochen” hier auf dem Blog verfolgt haben oder ihn in unserer dritten Ausgabe vom Printmagazin entdeckt haben.

Er ist meine direkte Verbindung zum Team von Roadrage in Zürich, die dort Shows buchen und Bands in die Stadt holen möchten.

Meeting the lads from ROADRAGE BOOKING on a cold winter’s day, planning and hoping to do this piece with moving pictures as well. Hermann is my direct link to them, he appeared on this blog as well as in our third print issue talking about vegan bodybuilding and cooking. Hermann is also part of this team tying to book shows and bring bands to Zurich.

Sehr wichtig für die Zusammenarbeit national ist noch das ARIES FESTIVAL, das Leo als eines der coolsten Festivals der Schweiz beschreibt. Vielleicht gibt es ja auch einmal eine Zurich Edition. 😉

As for other cool hardcore hotspots, Leo is mentioning ARIES FEST:

ARIES FEST is a festival that started in April 2013 done by a good friend call Florian. This first edition of the festival took place in the city of Geneva on the following dates 05.04 / 06.04.2013 with the participation of bands like Knuckledust (UK), TRC (UK), Cutdown (FIN), Wolf Down (DE), For The Glory (PO), Cornered (NL), One Last Chance (CH), just to mention a few. This festival  was denominated as a SWISS DIY HARDCORE CELEBRATION and hopefully the beginning of a new era in the Swiss hardcore scene. The attendance to the festival was mostly from people around the region. Unfortunately, there were not many people from other cities in Switzerland been just a few of us that took the trip, supported and had a good time. After some broken ankles, noses, busted knees, legs and bruises for two straight days. Hardcore has never felt as good in Switzerland as it did during Aries Fest.

After some months Florian decided to launched a second edition of the festival. This time on another city call Romont that belongs to the same french region of the country and later during the year compare to the first edition 10.10 / 11.10.2014. This year with another ass kicking line up with bands that took participation on the previous edition and new ones like Broken Teeth (UK), Bitter Taste Of Life (SWE), Bolt (FIN), Lions (CH) in between others. This second edition count with the attendance of some new faces that in some way discover for themselves what some of us were saying about the first edition of the festival. Simply fantastic. It is great to see more new kids come to shows despite all of that hate between different subgenres With that being said. I particularly would like to know what’s coming next in relation to Aries Fest and if we would be having a 2015 edition. I would love to team up and organise a following edition to this festival in the city of Zürich as well.


Wie im Interview erwähnt, ist das EBRIETAS wichtiger Bestandteil für die Shows der Crew, denn hier finden die Shows statt, die von Roadrage Booking organisiert werden. Ohne die Hilfe von den Besitzern, Nelly und Phil, wäre das Booking eigentlich gar nicht möglich.

The EBRIETAS location in the heart of Zurich is vital for the Roadrage team since they are able to present shows in a cool atmosphere thanks to the owners, Nelly and Phil.


Auf den Shows in Zürich, also auch denen von RRB, ist RABBIT RIOT für tighte Shots verantwortlich.

The guys team up with RABBIT RIOT for awesome concert photography.


Leo ist außerdem ein verlässlicher Teil des xclusivx Kollektivs geworden, indem er Beiträge über Festivals, Shows und Bands beisteuert. Er wird am vierten Printzine mitarbeiten, welches kurz vorm FLUFF im Juli erscheinen wird. Freuen wir uns sehr drauf 😉

It also so happened that ambitious Leo has become part of the xclusivx collective, delivering cool roadtrip reviews in “Out & About” and presenting cool bands to us in “Check that Band” and “Leo’s 1-on-1”. We are happy that he will be also part of our next print issue #4, due in July just before legendary FLUFF FEST 2015. Stoked X


Wer also den Weg nach Zürich einmal machen will, es lohnt sich! Außer Hardcore lässt sich sehr viel vegan essen gehen (Tipps findet ihr hier bei uns) und viel zu sehen. Perfekt für einen Roadtrip!

So make up your mind whether Zurich might be worth a roadtrip or two soon, great city with lots of vegan places to eat and lots to see!

My kind of music, my kind of life. 2009 fand mich der Veganismus. Beste Wahl. Straight Edge bin ich, seit ich 16 bin. Against the grain. Poesie produziert mein Hirn auch ab und zu. Für Feminismus und gegen Nazis. An Alle, die überlegen, auch etwas DIY aufziehen: einfach machen. All das mache ich, weil ich dachte: Ich kann das auch.

I am doing what I always wanted to do, I am writing. In the surroundings that mean most to me: more than music, but music laying the groundwork for all this. I found hardcore in my early twenties after being a straight edge metalhead since 16, It got a hold of me. And I am holding on to every moment. Through hardcore I turned to veganism in 2009. And hardcore was the reason for starting this zine & blog with Phil in 2012. It is simple: DIY OR DIE.
