DJ Set : Shacha
21H00 – 01H00
Luxembourg-born DJ Duo Shania and Charlotte have been best friends for over 20 years. Two short years ago, they both decided to play music together and share their passion.
The girls first discovered their love for electronic music in 2017 at a Jet Hangar festival with an all female line-up in South Africa. Shortly after this, they got inspired to start investing time and energy into creating their own sets. Their aim is to spice up the Luxembourgish music scene by introducing more female energy into the city’s nightlife. Living in Madrid and Vienna, they both work on different projects, however, they already had the chance to play at some bigger events in their hometown Luxembourg City, among other events also for Ultraschall Collective.
Coup de cœur with Fabienne Gorges
18H00 & 20H00
Fabienne Gorges was born in Luxembourg. A student in psychology, she developed a liking for spoken word in the United States, where she joined a collective and learned the art of spoken word poetry from scratch. Among other things, she learned how important it is for text, voice, role and posture to be in tune if a spoken word performance is to be successful.
Fabienne is a fresh and important voice in a fast-moving world that is currently undergoing dramatic changes.She stands for a young generation that is expected to take on several global crises at once: climate, war, pandemic. The young poet takes her audience on a highly emotional journey punctuated by bombastic rhymes and moving words.
