Hurricane 2019Eichenring, Scheeßel, Germany
21st to 23rd June 2019
Hurricane Festival 2019 Day 2 with Die toten Crackhuren im Kofferraum, Schmutzki, Idles, Zebrahead, Fünf Sterne Deluxe, Die Orsons, 257ers, Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls, Flogging Molly, Bloc Party, AnnenMayKantereit, Mumford & Sons

The second festival day brought a lot of sunshine with very warm temperatures. But the organizer had provided many free water points and there were also shady places. Nevertheless the conditions in front of the stage were very extreme, especially at noon. The program was packed with many top bands and it was impossible to follow them all.

The beginning was made by two somewhat special German bands: DIE TOTEN CRACKHUREN IM KOFFERRAUM and SCHMUTZKI.

Die toten Crackhuren im Kofferraum

DIE TOTEN CRACKHUREN IM KOFFERRAUM or simply The T.C.H.I.K. are a Pop Punk / Electroclash band from Berlin with fancy names like Luise “Lulu” Fuckface (vocals) Doreen K. Bieberface / Doreen Nr. 19, Kristeenager and Ilay, sometimes called the last RIOTGRRRL band in Germany. They started very successfully with songs like ‘Ich und mein Pony’ mostly on YouTube and just released a new album called ÄBitchlifecrisis’. Despite their direct and often harsh language, T.C.H.I.K. address very topical issues of feminism and everyday problems. The song ‘Jobcenterfotzen’, for example, deals with the feelings and treatment of unemployed applicants. The hard text has even prompted the Federal Employment Agency to take a position, but it hits the nail on the head.

SCHMUTZKI is a young German Punk band with amazing lyrics and catchy tunes, founded 2011 in Stuttgart. The band members are Beat Schmutz (vocals, guitar), Dany Horowitz (bass) and Flo Hagmüller (drums). This band from Stuttgart has an enormous fan base, even at the beginning of the festival day. The band starts with the song ‘Punk ist tot’ (Punk is dead) - which of course isn’t the case. Dany Horowitz on bass embodies an incredible energy and doesn’t stand still for a second. This is immediately transferred to the crowd and so the mosh pits come up very fast. It would be nice if this band could start at a better slot next time.

Directly after SCHMUTZKI another band followed which can also be assigned to Punk Rock. IDLES are an English Punk Rock band formed in Bristol in 2009 and called one of the best live band in the UK. In 2019, the band were nominated for Best Breakthrough Act at the 2019 Brit Awards. The band members are Joe Talbot (vocals), Adam Devonshire (bass), Mark Bowen (lead guitar), Jon Beavis (drums) and Lee Kiernan (rhythm guitar). The band’s music has been associated with Punk Rock, Singer Joe Talbot, however, rejects all of these labels. In 2017, he was quoted as saying: “We’re not a Post Punk band. I guess we have that motorik, engine-like drive in the rhythm section that some post punk bands have but we have plenty of songs that aren’t like that at all.” IDLES process a lot of social criticism in their texts, often difficult for outsiders to understand. Nevertheless, frontman Joe Talbot makes contact with the audience and addresses some of them personally. Mark Bowen was on stage in boxer shorts only and will later, like Lee Kiernan, come directly into the crowd and continue playing there. At the Hurricane, they certainly lived up to their reputation of being one of the best life acts.

As the next of the Punk Rock related bands on this early Saturday afternoon ZEBRAHEAD finally entered the stage. ZEBRAHEAD is an American Punk Rock band from Orange County, California. Formed in 1995, the band has released thirteen studio albums to date. ‘Brain Invaders’ is the thirteenth studio album it was released in Japan March 2019, and globally on March 8, 2019. The band announced the album along with a music video for the album’s first single, ‘All My Friends Are Nobodies’. Current members are Ali Tabatabaee (lead vocals), Ben Osmundson (bass guitar, backing vocals,) Ed Udhus (drums), Matty Lewis (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and  Dan Palmer (lead guitar).


At that time the area in front of the stage was already very well filled with people and the willingness to dance and just to jump was enormous. Big mosh pits turned their rounds and surely there would have been a lot of crowd surfers if they were allowed on the Hurricane. The performance ended with goose bumps and a joint singing by Whitney Houston’s song ‘I Will Always Love You’.

The rest of the afternoon was determined by some Hip-Hop groups, namely FÜNF STERNE DELUXE, DIE ORSONS and 257ERS. These groups created an astonishing enthusiasm among the spectators. Often different entertainment elements were used, like a foam shower or a monkey jumped across the stage. The success of these bands are certainly the German lyrics and the opportunity to sing along. But there was also a special reason to celebrate: After Campino from DIE TOTEN HOSEN, Mike from the 257ERS also celebrated his birthday on the Hurricane. But also for those who are not very into hip hop or rap there were enough alternatives in the afternoon.

Flogging Molly

Another great alternative to Hip Hop / Rap was the band FLOGGING MOLLY on the Forest stage. FLOGGING MOLLY is an Irish-American seven-piece Celtic Punk band led by Irish vocalist Dave King. The music is influenced by various artists, such as THE DUBLINERS, THE POGUES, HORSLIPS, JOHNNY CASH, THE CLASH, and GREEN DAY. The band members are Dave King (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Bridget Regan (violin, tin whistle, backing and lead vocals), Dennis Casey (guitar, vocals), Matt Hensley (accordion, concertina), Nathen Maxwell (bass guitar, vocals), Spencer Swain (mandolin, banjo, guitar, vocals) and Mike Alonso (drums, percussion).


You simply have to realize that this refreshing combination of Punk and Irish Folk music immediately sweeps everyone along. Dave King and his six band members radiated an enormous joy of playing and it was especially Dave King who has a fascinating charisma.

Bloc Party

BLOC PARTY (formed in 2003) is a hard-hitting British Indie Rock band known for straying into the realms of Electronica, House and Post-Punk music, hailing from London. The band members are of Kele Okereke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards, sampler), Russell Lissack (lead guitar, keyboards), Justin Harris (bass guitar, keyboards, saxophones, backing vocals) and Louise Bartle (drums, percussion). It had been a very exhausting afternoon for many, with a lot of heat, dancing, joy and singing along. It seemed that some people needed a break until the main acts and so the bands Bloc Party and THE WOMBATS suffered some attention. Especially THE WOMBATS on the River Stage had to struggle with the fact that ANNENMAYKANTEREIT on the Forest Stage were the actual highlight of the evening.

ANNENMAYKANTEREIT is a German Rock band from Cologne, which was founded in 2011. They sing in both German and English; a notable feature is the distinctive rough voice of the singer Henning May. The three founding members, from whose surnames the band name was created, formed a band while at school. At first the three performed as street musicians in Cologne. Malte Huck has been the bassist of the band since August 2014. The Hip Hop group K.I.Z. featured singer Henning May in their song ‘Hurra die Welt geht unter’. In 2018, the band released their new album, ‘Schlagschatten’, but was not touring in that year. For this reason the expectations for the first performance after the long break were high.


An unbelievable number of spectators had gathered in front of the Forest Stage and then at 21:00 it was time: A big, black curtain literally fell down and Henning May sang the first song ‘Marie’. It was an almost intimate, quiet moment and a perfect introduction to the performance. At the latest with the third song, ‘Wohin Du gehst’, Henning May had gripped everyone with his unbelievable voice and many people felt goose bumps. The band played impressive 16 songs until the gig ended with the song ‘Ich geh heut nicht mehr tanzen’ with free dancing of all. This was truly a successful comeback of ANNENMAYKANTEREIT after their one-year break.

On the River Stage, MACKLEMORE probably played an impressive set, but photographers were not allowed and so we dedicated ourselves to the last big headliner of the evening: MUMFORD & SONS.

Mumford & Sons

MUMFORD & SONS are a British band formed in 2007. The band consists of Marcus Mumford (lead vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, drums), Ben Lovett (vocals, keyboard, piano, synthesizer), Winston Marshall (vocals, electric guitar, banjo) and Ted Dwane (vocals, bass guitar, double bass). It was a wonderful ending to the day. Front man and namesake Marcus Mumford takes his time between songs to be silent and enjoy. Calm as a soul, he strolls with his guitar and smiles shyly into the silent crowd. Then he tunes ‘The Cave’, the biggest hit of the band, and transforms the silence into thunderous cheers within seconds.

An intense, for very exhausting day ended in a very harmonious way. At a very late hour Steve Aoki entered the River Stage but there were already many safe in their tents, well packed in the now cool summer night.
