BlackEaster Festival

3 more bands added to the Black Easter 2019 line-up!

We are extremely proud to announce the next 3 artists for our 2019 Black Easter Festival!

„Hackedepicciotto“ are Alexander Hacke (EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN) and Danielle de Picciotto. Both are legends of their own making: Danielle de Picciotto moved to Berlin in 1987, to become the lead singer of the band „Space Cowboys“, the co-initiator of the Love Parade, a collaborator of the Ocean Club with Gudrun Gut, and Alexander’s partner in crime. Alexander Hacke is a founding member and bass player of Einstürzende Neubauten. The artist couple, romantically married in 2006, has creatively interacted with countless international projects for almost 2 decades now besides regularly releasing their own compositions. Their live shows are, to put it mildly, intense.



Evi Vine (vocals, guitars) together with musicans Steven Hill (gitars, keys), Matt Tye (bass), David GB Smith (drums) and Ben Roberts (cello) plays dark intimate folktronica. With her wonderful and fragile voice (comparable to Beth Gibbons or Heather Nova) she creates dreamy soundscapes or gloomy atmospheres. This UK based band have only released two full albums so far (Jo Quail played cello on her debut) but they already command a loyal fanbase. Heartbreaking tracks, such as ‘My hands are tied’ or ‘Porcelain’, sung in a beautiful and haunting way are only two reasons for that. A third album is being recorded and will be released in 2019. 


Jo Quail is a composer and virtuoso cellist from London. She uses cello and looping techniques to create a very unique universe. By doing so she makes complex and evocative music. Boundaries are crossed by mixing genres from classical, electronica, post-rock or even metal. In November 2018 her fourth album ‘Exsolve’ was released, defined by ‘The Metal Report’ as “a dark symphonic lullaby”. Next to her solo project, she collaborated as a guest artist with Eraldo Bernocchi and FM Einheit on ‘Rosebud’, performed with Cappella Gedanensis (Poland) on choral/orchestral arrangements and supported the American post-rock band Caspian. Jo also made also appearances at many alternative festivals such as Wave-Gothic-Treffen (DE), Latitude (GB) or Dunk!festival (BE).
