Rock 'n' Roll in Rummelsburg.
Rock 'n' Roll in Rummelsburg.
New location, old friends: After two year's at Berlin Postbahnhof, the next Pure&Crafted Festival will be held at the historic Rummelsburg power plant on 26 and 27 August 2017. With all the industrial charm so typical of Berlin, the historic venue on the Spree River is the perfect setting for two full-on days of vintage culture, music and custom bikes. Let there be no doubt after the 2015 Pure&Crafted Festival: Music and motorcycles simply belong together. The name says it all: Lovers of pure, straightforward, no-frills guitar-driven music are in for a real treat at the third festival, which boasts yet another internationally acclaimed line-up. This time, bikes and new heritage will be more in the spotlight on the Sunday of the festival. There will be motorcycle lifestyle galore, with countless custom builders, a motorcycle ride-out and a kids programme. But one thing is certain too: There will be plenty of music on Sunday as well. Sound fun? Then be there!
Custom bike lovers will be blown away by the array of acclaimed custom makers at the Pure&Crafted Festival. The big names in the scene, like Krautmotors, Nagel Motors, Urban Motor and Berham Customs, have exhibited at past festivals. The new venue has space for even more exhibitors.
The BMW Motorrad Truck also features spectacular custom and concept bikes, while in the BMW Motorrad Workshop there will be work on current custom projects. Next door in the BMW Motorrad store you'll find the latest equipment and motorcycle accessories. A selection of the current models is available for test rides. The breathtaking Motodrom will also return and for the first time not two, not three, but four BMW R 25/0 will ride simultaneously on the "Wall of Death". In order to remember the event for a long time, you can immortalize yourself in the fotobox, customise your own pictures and take them with you!
Rough, raw and unpolished: Rolf Reick has also given his well-known style to the latest custom build: a custom bike, based on the electric scooter BMW C evolution, that is also the Pure&Crafted Signature Bike 2017. This is the first time the experienced customizer worked on an electric bike. There were no guidelines. This is how a dragster arised, that the head of Krautmotors will ride at the Glemseck 101 - in a quiet manner of course. Completed and introduced to the public on this year's Pure&Crafted festival. Be there when Rolf Reick presents his "E-Lisabeth" to an audience for the first time! On Saturday shortly before the main act on the main stage.
Rock music and boxer sound: The sound of the bands will mix with the distinct hum of flat twin engines to create a unique fusion of sound at the historic Rummelsburg power plant. The line-up is set. And it's an impressive one. On the main stage, the American band Interpol will serve up the finest post punk, and many other bands will crank it up on the main stage and the Motodrome stage. The musical spectrum will range from psychedelic electronica to punk anthems to pure, handcrafted acoustic songs.
(New) heritage from head to toe: If you're looking for your next favourite accessory, head to the General Store at the Pure&Crafted Festival. There you'll find everything from vintage shoes and timeless fashion to jewellery and accessories to biker gadgets. And if you need the right haircut for your new style, just stop by the barber. Fuel for the body will be available everywhere at the festival: Food stalls and food trucks will cater to every taste, from healthy food to hearty street cuisine.
Berlin rocks to the boxer beat.
The post-industrial backdrop of the old post station became the centre of Berlin for a weekend. 8,000 custom and vintage lovers came together for the Pure&Crafted Festival - sold out. The Berlin scene celebrated "pure and handmade" in its purest form to the catchy sound of Mando Diao and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. To be continued...
The striking heartbeat of the boxer engines mixes with the booming bass and the unmistakeable voice of British pop legend Noel Gallagher.
