Break even! Thank you!

One month from now, the AAAHHWOOO! Festival will begin. That’s just 30 days! Some of our artists and our core team will be there one week before the festival to record new music, do some workshops and prepare the compound, build an outside stage etc. And all this can and will only happen because of you. Thanks for purchasing 183 tickets and donating 2500 Euros to us!

We have reached the break even today! This means no one will loose any money and every cent we get on top of this amount will go to the artists attending the festival. This is great news for us, since we are taking all the (financial) risk of running this festival. We are so much looking forward to seeing you all on August 29th. By the way: We have about 60 tickets and 30 days left to tell your friends about AAAHHWOOO! They should not miss this. It’s going to be AAAHHSOME!

Some people take matters too literally. We do not know how you plan to arrive at AAAHHWOOO in Bralitz, but maybe we can be of some assistance. Over the course of time we received more and more requests to offer a space of some sort for lift shares or carpools or however your country commands you to call it. We decided to open a Google Doc, where you should be able to find fellow travellers.

AAAHHWOOO!!! Festival news!

AAAHHWOOO!!! Festival news!

Der Countdown läuft. (You can find an english version below) In etwas mehr als einem Monat geht es endlich wieder los! Das AAAHH Records Festival 2014, in diesem Jahr mit dem wolfigen Titel “AAAHHWOOO!!!” beginnt am 29. August. Viele von euch waren bereits bei unserem Debüt 2013 dabei, einige von euch werden dieses Jahr das erste Mal bei uns sein. Unsere Aufregung und Vorfreude steigt mit jedem Tag!

Das wichtigste vorab: Wir haben noch knapp 90 Tickets zu vergeben und würden uns freuen wenn ihr in eurem Freundeskreis nochmal die Werbetrommel rührt. Je früher die Tickets weg sind, desto besser können wir kalkulieren und planen.

Da uns einige Fragen erreicht haben, gibt’s hier ein paar Antworten auf häufig gestellte Fragen:

Wie kommt man am besten zum Festival?
Am einfachsten ist es wohl mit dem PKW. (ca. 2 Autostunden von Berlin aus) Wir schicken früh genug eine detaillierte Wegbeschreibung an alle Besucher. Man kann uns jedoch auch mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln erreichen. Die Bahn (ODEG) bringt euch zum Bahnhof in Bad Freienwalde. Von dort fahren Linienbusse nach Bralitz. Mit dem Fahrrad trampelt ihr etwa 30-40 Minuten. Die detaillierte Anfahrtsbeschreibung wird übrigens auch die Busfahrpläne enthalten.

Kann man bei euch Zelten?
Na aber klar doch! Auf der Wiese und im Waldstück auf unserem Gelände ist genug Platz für euch und eure Zelte. Wir haben auch einige Stellplätze für Busse, Wohnmobile, etc. Es wäre nett wenn ihr uns vorab mitteilt, falls ihr mit dem Womo kommt, damit wir das entsprechend planen können.

Wie sieht’s aus mit Essen, Trinken, etc?
Non-Alc, sowie Bier, Kaffee, Tee, etc. gibt’s bei uns für schmale Taler. Die Kollegen vom Pirate Kitchen Kollektiv sorgen für leckere, günstige Mahlzeiten. Natürlich könnt ihr euch auch selbst verpflegen, aber wir würden uns freuen, wenn ihr bei der Pirate Kitchen esst und das ein oder andere Getränk bei uns kauft, da alles sehr eng kalkuliert ist und euch die Piratenköche liebevoll zum Selbstkostenpreis bekochen.

Braucht ihr noch Hilfe?
Ja! Sehr gerne! Wer uns vor Ort unterstützen möchte (z.B. Feuerholz holen und die Feuerstelle hüten, Müll einsammeln, eine Bar-Schicht übernehmen, etc… es gibt immer was zu tun) kann sich gerne bei uns melden.

Wir freuen uns auf euch!!!

Auf bald,
eure AAAHHs

Hey everyone,

our lovely festival will begin in a little bit more than one month and our excitement is growing every day. August 29th is the day when the fest will begin. First things first: We have about 90 tickets left and it would be awesome if you could tell your friends about our wolfy AAAHHWOOO! Festival.

Since we received some questions in the last couple of weeks, here are some answers for you, in case you were asking yourself things like:

How can I get to the festival site?
By car would be the easiest way. It’s about a 1 to 2 hours drive from Berlin city (depending on your location and the traffic). We will send you a detailed road map soon! You can also get to us by train (Bad Freienwalde) and Bus (there are some busses going directly to Bralitz. Our road map will also contain train und bus connections.

What about camping?
There will be enough room for you and your friends to set up your tent(s) in the nearby forest, on the lawn or wherever else we will prepare a lovely spot for you to camp. There will also be room for camper vans, in case you got one of those things… please let us know if you got one, because we will prepare things for it.

Can we bring food and drinks ourself?
Well, yes you can. But you can also get drinks from us for very reasonable prices. We will offer you beer, non-alcs, coffee and tee. The wonderful people from the Pirate Kitchen Collective will do some great cooking for you. It’s all not for profit… please keep that in mind.

Do you need some help?
Yes, thanks for asking. If you can give us a hand or two, during the festival weekend, we will love you forever. There is always stuff to do. Like taking care of the fire place, collecting bottles and glasses, helping out at the bar. If you want to help us, please contact us via email.

That’s it for now. We are absolutely looking forward to seeing you soon!

Yours,
the AAAHH Records Crew

A Moving Festival Compilation

comp movcov

Gadzooks! It is moving! No worries, old horse, today it is not you; no need to call your therapist. We proudly present you the moving cover for our annual festival compilation, which will contain all the songs our artists will produce during the upcoming festival workshop. You might ask yourself: “Ja, ist denn schon Weihnachten?” (“Iz ith Krizmaz alreddy?”) How is it possible to release something, that has not been recorded yet?

We obviously cannot publish this presumably fine compilation before the festival; the cover is a mere teaser. We only would like you to know, that the third stretch goal of our crowdfinding campaign has been reached. Firstly, it guarantees the existence of another festival compilation in 2014, and secondly said collection of songs will be available earlier for all attendees of AAAHHWOOO in Bralitz. Zounds! If that is not another good reason to donate in exchange for a festival ticket, then we do not know what you youngsters want!?

Meet the Pirate Kitchen collective and their indie (soul) food!

Soulfood from the pirate kitchen collective

Our annual festival is coming closer, our Crowdfinding campaign is starting very soon! This means soon you will be able to get one of the strictly limited 250 festival tickets! If you have been with us last year you know that serving food for all of you was quite a challenge for us. This year we have been working on a major update when it comes to food during the festival.

The dutch Pirate Kitchen collective will join us! They bring their solar powered equipment, set up their temporary restaurant and will cook for all of us, serve tea or coffee or as they describe it “feed peoples bodies and souls.” We are very happy and excited to see them joining us for a couple of days. Check out their website and you will see that the Pirate Kitchen is a perfect match to our festival and label concept.

“We have the opinion that money should not be made on basic needs like a hot meal. For this reason we work on a non profit base, giving people freshly made, quality food (and coffee) for a fair price.”
