Freqs 2018 from 4th to 9th of July.

This years edition is barely over, but we are happy to announce the dates for the next year. Freqs of Nature Festival 2018 is planned for the 4th to the 9th of July. Now you can start counting the days.

Freqs of Nature Festival 2017

Again Freqs of Nature Festival has been a heart warming emotional ride through days saturated with our favourite art.
We want to thank our amazing team and artists for all the hard work and passion put into this project, you all are what is making this festival to what it is! We also want to thank our wonderful guests for bringing so much good energy and open minds ready to receive our artistic experiments. Last but not least we are sending out our deepest gratitude to the neighbours and local residents for giving us the space we need and for welcoming us with open arms into their community as well as the local authorities for their trust and continuous support!

We are giving every year again all what we got and we are focussing all our energy and creativity into this project to be able to hold up with our own goals and urge to constantly evolve. A key element of evolving is observing and learning from each edition to try and create an even more detailed experience for the years to follow. With the for us successful launch of the Bass Playground we have decided to move most of the Drum&Bass from the Forest Floor to the Bass Playground in the following years to give again more room for both styles to unfold their full potential without compromises. The experiment to mix two so contrary genres on one stage has a been very positive for us and it warms our hearts to see how both worlds have gained so much from each other, but we have reached what we wanted and its time to move on. These and so many other little things are subjects of our constant development of the creative melting pot that Freqs of Nature Festival is!

As we are finishing up the take down and are already diving deep into the preparations for next year we want to wish everybody a healthy and creative year and we are excited to be welcoming you to the next edition 04-09 July 2018!

Much love, inspiration and gratitude from your Freqs of Nature team

Drinking Water & Personal drinks and food

We are providing free drinking water through out the whole festival ground with freely accessible water taps. We build kilometres of a water pipe connection from the next village last year to be able to provide you with the best possible drinking water! Use them, stay hydrated!

We are allowing any reasonable amount of personal supplies of any form, there are no restrictions such as alcohol or glas bottles and the likes, you can enter to all festival areas with your own beverages and food.

Since it is very easy to reach the next by town called Jüterbog by public transportation we advice everyone to take trains to Jüterbog, from there a local bus operator is providing shuttles for the whole duration of the festival, july 5th noon to july 12th noon.

Tickets

Tickets are not personalised, meaning you can sell them/buy them from others. Please be aware we have no way to check who is entering with a ticket, and the first person coming with a ticket will be let in. That means please only buy tickets from trusted sources since a ticket could be printed out multiple times. Fraud with tickets has occurred and we can only advise to buy tickets only from your own network. If you absolutly can’t resist the urge to buy a ticket from the nice girl at the train station, ask for an ID and write down the name and adress.

Bass Freqs EP released

We have something special for you today.

We are happy to anounce the release of “Bass Freqs”, the first EP of our Resident artist Francesco Lenci here represented with his Drum&Bass project Artificial Behavior aka Re:Set.

Atmospheric and intelligent Neurofunk from Berlin with influences from various genres. Not too aggressive nor too mellow he is delivering a refreshing approach to Drum&Bass. From the floating deep song “Log Out” over the techy drum-monster “Idment” to the Neurofunk dancefloor-blaster “The Beast” this EP is showing his wide spectrum of creations.

To listen to and download the EP follow this link.

As always, stay tuned for a completely new design of the entire venue, ground braking new decorations and psychedelic engineering installations!

Stickers and Posters have arrived

We are seeing our posters and stickers not just as promotion but rather more as a way to display art. Every year we are looking for artists who are in a symbiosis with our art concept to create an art piece representing our festival.

Since we do not send out promo-packages, as we feel that’s a waste of resources and leaves to much of an impact on our environment. But to still give the opportunity to everyone to get some of this stunning art prints we have besides laying out promo at events and scene-hotspots, placed some stickers and posters at the lovely Plazmalab Berlin Shop in Friedrichshain/Berlin.

From today everyone who likes, can go there to pick up posters and stickers. Please take only as much as you need or are able to spread around, we all should safe resources as much as we can.
We understand that for those who are not living in Berlin it’s not the easiest solution but we estimated that almost from every friend circle around Europe someone will pass by Berlin during the next months. If you like to grab some of this lovely art and you are not from Berlin or closely around just ask some friends who are visiting in or from Berlin to pick some up for you.

Please do not call the shop and ask them to send you a package, we are grateful that they are supporting us to spread our artwork but we don’t want to interfere with their daily business, so please only pass by and pick them up directly. The Opening hours you can see on their website.
You can find Plazmalab Berlin here:
