10th to 12th September 2021
NCN 2021 Special with Front 242, Diary of Dreams, Blind Passenger, Carpet Waves, Das Ich, Placebo Effect, Tanzwut, Death in Rome and many more
In another world the Nocturnal Culture Night Festival in Deutzen marks slowly the end of the outdoor festival season, presenting old and new gems of the music world paired with the romantic atmosphere of the Kulturpark Deutzen (Cultural Park in Deutzen, close to Leipzig in Easter Germany). Already last year we were looking towards celebrating the 15th full edition on the first weekend of September… but things are still different…
…in our current world in 2021 the full 15th edition, as many other festivals, had to be moved to next year 2022, but the organizers didn’t give up and present this year as smaller, cosy event, called NCN Special, just like last year. This year it will mark for many of us one of the very few open-air festivals of the season since all big ones are postponed. The concept is fully pandemic conform and therefore just less than 1,000 tickets are sold. Please read the full concept regarding the rules this year on the festival website.
Though NCN is one of the smaller festivals, the program is more than diverse, even though only some artists are confirmed so far. At the end, there will be 29 bands performing on the weekend. This “Special” edition is held like in last year and like the E-Only Festival earlier this year. There are all in two stages this year. You’ll follow the paths from the park to find them, passing by old tiny houses, beautiful weeping willow trees and more. Also, there will be a market, a merch stall and a selection of gastronomy choices. Very special about NCN is that the organizers don’t care much about trends, but invite bands and artists of all the different kinds to the festival. From 80s legends to almost unknown or forgotten artists to newcomer bands and many of the popular names are also showing up, of course. The genres are as diversified as the decades that they come from. From Post Punk, to Dark Wave, 80ies Pop, Synth Pop, Goth Rock, Metal to Indie and Electro - you will find all the shades of dark and colourful music here.
