owlsandbats2016 flyerWaldbühne at the Hermannsdenkmal, Detmold, Germany
2nd July 2016
Owls'n'Bats Festival with Black Nail Cabaret, Saigon Blue Rain, Then Comes Silence, Escape with Romeo, Clan of Xymox

Summer - it's a time that creatures of darkness prefer to spent in the shade. On a special day, though, such as July 2, we like to get out, leave our caves and coffins, and do a pilgrimage to special locations, like the Waldbühne at the monument called Hermannsdenkmal in Detmold, Germany, located in the midst of nature. What for? Of course to join in the wonderful Owls'n'Bats open air festival, which enriches the dark scene since 2014, for a truly “black celebration” in the woods of the Teutoburg Forest. This year's line-up once again sounds very promising: We'll be bewitched by BLACK NAIL CABARET, SAIGON BLUE RAIN, THEN COMES SILENCE, ESCAPE WITH ROMEO, and CLAN OF XYMOX. The Owls'n'Bats a must go for everybody into Dark Electro and Electronica, Indie, Shoegaze, Gothic Metal, Darkwave, Goth Pop, Post Punk, Alternative Rock and Gothic Rock!

In addition to listening to five music acts, you can also take a stroll through the “Schattenmarkt” there and check out some unique merch, fashion, accessories, jewelry and furniture. This year, Batcave-Design, Doriel Design, Fräulein Bine, JNB Media, Bat-Kitty, Dark-Living, Cantara and FlezArt will present their handcrafts at the “market of shadows”. And especially to those coming from afar: Don't miss visiting the sacred site “Externsteine”, a famous sandstone rock formation that is also located in the Teutoburg Forest!
