Stages marked with an asterisk (*) are accessible without a wristband!

BEN CAPLAN

14:00, Ratsherrn Brauerei; 21:30, Hörsaal

Out of the manyfold singer-songwriter and folk acts at Reepfest, he is one you shouldn’t miss, with an outstanding voice that touches something deep inside. (recommended by Belle Brummell)

VINYL JACKET

15:30, Das Herz von St. Pauli

Newcastle upstarts play hectic art-pop for fans of Everything Everything. Catch them before the album comes so you can brag about it later! (recommended by Belle Brummell)

KING CHARLES

19:30, Spielbudenplatz Stage East*, 23:45, Molotow

Lively folk-mashup from Londonder who already sang with Mumford & Sons. Kicks right in, addictive and irresistible. (recommended by Belle Brummell)

INDIANS

20:00, Indra

Do you miss Youth Lagoon in this year’s festival line-up? Try to check out this guy from Denmark! He’s no less dreamy and calm – a quiet start into a long and exciting festival night. (recommended by petepelican)

FRAU POTZ

20:00, Knust

Their angry German punkrock tells it like it is, with a complimentary punch in your guts. Refreshingly free of clichés or ‘rebellious’ posing. (recommended by Belle Brummell)

LAST DINOSAURS

20:15, Molotow

These guys have some really good indie-dance tunes with playful guitars and impulsive drums. So start the evening on the Molotow’s dancefloor with these “dinosaurs” from Australia. (recommended by petepelican)

DENA

21:00, Café Keese

The coolest thing to come out of Berlin this year. MIA meets Friends and the most awful clothes of the 90s. (recommended by Belle Brummell)

COSMO JARVIS

21:55, Molotow Bar

Weightless pop songs telling big little stories of life, free from genre boundaries. Besides, this young Brit wrote one of the most epic love songs in history: “Gay Pirates” (no irony!) (recommended by Belle Brummell)

THE WAVE PICTURES

22:30, Uebel & Gefährlich

British storytellers play indie-pop with charm and an adorable sense of humour. An absolute delight live! (recommended by Belle Brummell)

PEACE

22:40, Molotow

One of NME’s Best New Bands of 2012 come along with some big refrains, in which we can sometimes hear a bit of Nirvana, but listen for yourselves! (recommended by petepelican)

ICONA POP

00:45, Café Keese; 2:20, Neidklub

No matter how much we try to come across as tasteful and sophisticated, chances are you’ll find us at 2 in the night, drunk and tired and happy, dancing like idiots to the incredibly simple, incredibly effective electro anthems by Swedish duo Icona Pop. (recommended by Belle Brummell)

ELECTRIC GUEST

01:50, Uebel & Gefährlich

Irresistibly laid-back, soulful electronic pop from mastermind Danger Mouse’s new project. A must-not-miss! (recommended by Belle Brummell)
