Since 2007 the label Denovali Records curates and organizes a three days music festival called Denovali Swingfest. Focussed on experimental music the lineup offers a wonderful opportunity to discover a wide range of international denovali artists live and is rounded off by various renowned non-label guest artists.
A hallmark of the festival is the renunciation of the headliner principle: all artists are receiving the same attention – the length of each artist’s concert is equal. In addition to the musical program the festival features yearly changing specials like an experimental film cinema, installations or lectures.
In the past five years artists like Sunn O))), Hauschka, Thomas Köner, Tim Hecker, Bohren und der Club Of Gore, Mouse On The Keys, Celeste, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, Hidden Orchestra or Bersarin Quartett found their way to Essen
