Line Up:
Laura Lato is a German pop artist who stands for autobiographical lyrics and international beats à la Dua Lipa. On her agenda are topics like self-discovery, empowerment, optimism but also intimate and private moments find a place in her songs. Laura is the styled-up buddy at the bar, the woman with the loud laugh, the heart on her tongue and the friend who leaves everything behind even at night to stand by your side. A boss with perfect make-up. A doer in high heels. A beer drinking fashionista!

False roses and real love - consumerism, loneliness and social ills - personal ailments and the search for identity: Engin delivers an uncompromising view of the world and the self. The finger always in the wound.
Profound and danceable singer-songwriter music, brute and fragile. A conglomerate of Turkish psych-rock sounds, blues, indie and chanson elements.
Laura Lato (vocals), Maximilian Götte (bass), Leon Dorn (bass), Leon Rothkopf (piano), Marlon Meininger (guitar).
Engin Devekiran (vocals, guitar), David Knevels (bass), Jonas Stiegler (drums), Max Clouth (guitar)
