Now that the dreary old festive season's out of the way it's time to get thinking about the festival season (which, if you play your cards right, can last the other 11 months of the year). Here at Musos' Guide the first event to excite us, in what promises to be a packed year for such things, is the 5th iteration of Hamburg's Garageville. A relatively small event as such things go it does though offer up a boat cruise disco on the mighty Elbe river on its third day. Small ones are more juicy anyway.
Over the weekend of 8-10 April then, over two venues (the Hafenklang & the Molotow MusikClub), you can expect to see the likes of the fantastic Strollers, King Salami & The Cumberland 3, Norway's Scumbugs, Germany's own Trash Templars and a host more.
Weekend tickets are 32 euros (boat ticket extra) and information on obtaining those as well as suggested places to stay, record stores to vist etc. can be found here.
