Beardyman (UK)


Beardyman – who, by the way, gave up his trademark beard years ago – is a one-man band like you've never seen before. He floods the stage with a perplexing fusion of master-class beatboxing, mind-boggling loop artistry and an occasional taste of British stand up comedy. This wild mash-up is accompanied by sounds of Beardytron 5000 Mk4, a doomsday machine designed by Mr. Beardyman himself.

And the music? Beardyman is known for improvising his shows on the spot according to the needs of the venue and situation, but we may expect some drum'n'bass and breakbeat, freestyle rap, reggae rhythms and, in all likelihood, heavy-handed takes on familiar household hits. Beardyman has performed at comedy clubs, gigantic festivals like Coachella, and techno caves in Berlin, fascinating listeners wherever he goes. And don't forget – the audience is invited to take part!
