Under the rainbow- a stormy Breminale 2014!
Everyone in and around Bremen now knows what a storm is or rather what it isn't. Despite several storm warnings at this year's festival, there has never been a true storm there. Nevertheless "Safety is more important than sticking to the programme", says Max Maurer, project manager of Breminale festival. Visitors of Breminale festival can rely not only on great entertainment, but also on the right security measures that are taken.
A brilliant saturday evening reconciled visitors, food & beverage vendors and the rest of the Breminale crew with weather forecasters. The largest and most diverse summer festival in Bremen presented more than 100 bands from pop to rock and blues. This year's Breminale family also included the ship MS Treue as well as the DreiMeterbretter, Wohnzimmer, an organic food village the socalled "BioErleben-Dorf" and the "Himmlische Wiese" which is an extension of the festival area that has been introduced in 2013."Thanks to the swb and Radio Bremen we were able to host such a diverse and colourful event", says Susanne von Essen, art director of Breminale festival.
The organisers estimate that this year around 200.000 visitors enjoyed their programme, which is a little less than in the record breaking year of 2013, but nevertheless the artists and musicians came to one and the same conclusion: "Such a peaceful festival of this size is unique". The organisers are already looking forward to hosting the Breminale 2015, which will be taking place from 15th until 19th of July, 2015 - despite any wind and weather.
