8 Jahre Waagenbau Weekend - FOREIGN BEGGARS KONZERT & DRUMBUMS
Der Donnerstag ist zurück: Um den amtlichen, nun ja, Drumbums, kümmert sich unter der Sternbrücke ein Kollektiv von Drum & Bass, Dubstep- und Elektrojunkies, die Dinge einfach mal selbst in die Hand nehmen und ganz abseits des Kiezstandards schöne Feier-Alternativen schaffen. Und um das Waagenbau-Geburtstagswochenende gebührend laut einzuläuten, übernimmt mit den Foreign Beggars einer der wichtigsten und respektiertesten Liveacts Europas die Bühne – an der Schnittstelle von Grime, Rap und Dubstep ist kaum jemand so umtriebig wie die Londoner Crew, deren Referenzenliste sich liest wie das Inhaltsverzeichnis eines zeitgenössischen Poplexikons. Geil drauf – und danach Party auf 2 Floors !
