BGVestival #2

On 01.09.2023 from 3pm it’s that time again! We would like to celebrate BGVestival with you.

You can expect a great programme put together together with the groups in the centre! The festival will take place in front of the two buildings facing the town square and the Babette beer garden. You can enjoy live music and some dancing on the stage. Take some food and walk past the booths. Take a look at what the centre has to offer. We will keep you informed about the programme on our channels.

programme on stage

Nilo MC

Nilo MC is the pioneer of the hip hop movement in Cuba. He is a musician, MC, producer and DJ and lives between Madrid, Havana and Berlin. With him, trap, cumbia, dubstep, Balkan, D&B, tropical bass, moombahton meet with an influence of artists like Skrillex and Diplo. This explosive cocktail inevitably brings the audience to its peak. In his song “Intro Guajiro” he describes it: “La vida es una fiesta y soy el DJ” – “Life is a party and I’m the DJ”(Nilo MC).

Folklore Mexiko

The name says it all with Folklore Mexico! With great costumes and breathtaking dance performances, the group brings a little piece of Mexico right to the heart of Berlin.

Agnes Mitchell

Agnes Mitchell is Brazilian and a nurse. As an artist she always tries to challenge herself, to leave her comfort zone and try new things, but not to lose her essence for the essence of old school drag art.

La By’le

La By’le’s sound is infectious, percussive and a social statement. They present a party-ready mix of genres from the Global South and spice their music with free-spirited vocals that linguistically transcend national borders with humour and self-awareness.
