18:30 – 19:30 / 20:30 – 21:45 THE HIDDEN CAMERAS The Hidden Cameras is the brainchild of Joel Gibb, a Canadian Berlin-based artist and musician. In previous years at Kampnagel, Gibb has filled out the stage with a band of both classical and self-taught musicians. For the first time however, he brings his songs of The Hidden Cameras in an intimate solo setting for the physically distanced of 2021. Gibb will be performing two distinctly different sets on Friday August 6; the first will be folk songs, ballads and spirituals surveying the Cameras oeuvre and debuting new ones. The second will be a more upbeat set, seeing Gibb play guitar with simultaneous drum elements and also electronic, will be also a chance to debut some new electronic material he has been developing in Munich for a forthcoming Cameras record due in 2022. At his roots a singer and songwriter, Gibb is a brilliant chameleon of music, experimenting in almost every genre and performance style, collaborating with artists like Feist and Rufus Wainwright (who both appeared on The Hidden Cameras’ most recent record HOME ON NATIVE LAND). With this performance, Hamburg will be treated to an intimate portrayal of Gibb's illustrious collection of beautiful songs and interpretations.

This project is part of Canada’s cultural program as Guest of Honour at the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2020/2021 with the support of the Embassy of Canada.


19:30 – 20:30 KRACHKISTEN ORCHESTER The Krachkisten Orchestra produces improvised electric sounds with self-made analogue box-like instruments. The orchestra, founded in 2009 by Hamburg based artist TinTin Patrone, has toured to several art-institutions in Europe. As well as their musicality, there is a highly artistic quality in the craftsmanship of the instruments, which the Krachkisten Orchestra showcase in the performative way they present themselves in the playing space, in this case the Sommerfestival Avant Garden.

From 18:30 JAJAJA & GUESTS



From 18:30 SOLICASINO No Summer Festival would be complete without this classic form of entertainment-solidarity. Where else can the joyful (games, fun, diversion) be combined with the helpful (charity)? If luck holds out, there will also be an un-loseable raffle, along with countless other aces up countless other sleeves. It will be as worthwhile as ever and don’t forget: When you lose, others win! Strong drinks, liqueur and soft music will also be on offer – we promise!


Like last year, Hamburg's pearl of pleasure parks will be designed by JASCHA&FRANZ - conceptually accompanied by the long-time festival associated performance group JAJAJA and extended by a Waldbühne by Urs Amadeus Ulbrich and Gras & Steine. With references to fun fairs and theme parks and with a concept for accessibility, the Festival Avant-Garden offers various areas with installations, performances, culinary delights from the Peacetanbul Restaurant and a daily changing program on several open-air stages and the Migrantpolitan building (details in the program overview).

Capacity is limited due to the pandemic and access is only possible with a personalized ticket (3€, available in advance and at the box office). With a ticket for another festival performance on the same evening you can enter the garden for free - as long as there is enough capacity, otherwise there might be bridgeable waiting times. Seated areas in front of the various garden stages will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Details about hygiene rules on site will be published here in due time.
