This year, the bckp-events including concerts, lounges and a big party from the musical portion of the international backup_festival. Bands, live acts and DJs will perform from Wednesday to Saturday in the Weimarer Gaswerk, a location well-known by artists and party animals. We will start on Wednesday the 17th at 8 pm with a kick-off concert. On Friday the 19th, the backup party will be the main event. This year, we look forward to hearing lots of different artists. Apart from musical guests, there will be a discussion about »the situation of poetry film festivals« on Friday and a colloquium about »typography and writing in poetry films« on Saturday. On Saturday evening, we finally see the best of the best during the award ceremony at 9 pm. Those of you who just can’t get enough can have one last impression at the “best of backup 2017”. Afterwards, there’s nothing to do but look forward to next year’s festival and the awesome new films at backup.
