Despite the fact that it had 60,000 visitors this weekend, the MS Dockville is nothing like any big scale commercial festival and left us absolutely amazed by it’s beauty, the relaxed atmosphere and the attention to detail, that the organizers put into its set-up. Close to the industrial harbor of Hamburg, the festival grounds that are usually used by an art collective called Lüttville, looked like an extremely cool summer camp with its hammock areas, tree tipis, container bars and artificial beaches which all made great chill-out areas for festival guests. Even the sustainable local food trucks looked the part. No wonder all festival-goers were in a great mood and contributed to a peaceful and happy atmosphere. Whether you enjoyed indie, EDM or techno, the line-up had something in store for everyone and also gave people the chance to discover new artists. Thank you Dockville for three great days filled with sunshine and great music!
New York City-based indie singer Darwin Deez was one of the first acts to open the festival on Friday. His dancy tunes and witty choreographies in between songs set the mood for a day full of energetic performances.
