These bands create the atmosphere in the Musikdome

What belongs to a real festival? That's right, music! And these bands will be performing at NEW HOUSING - Europe's largest Tiny House Festival - from 30 June to 2 July.

This year, NEW HOUSING offers even more festival character. In keeping with this, on the three opening days, 30 June and 1 and 2 July, outstanding musicians will provide a great atmosphere - and that's what they are.

From indie to rap

Chantel Torres and Leonhard Bley will kick things off on Friday, 30 June, from 12 noon to 2.30 pm. Bley is a newcomer from Pforzheim. According to his own statement, his music is oriented towards bands like Provinz, AnnenMayKantereit and Mayberg. Bley is at home in the music genres of indie, pop and, to some extent, rap. Bley is currently working on the release of his first singles, which were created in collaboration with the musician Chantel Torres, among others.

Chantel grew up bilingually and likes to alternate between German and English-spoken R'nB, soul and pop in her music. She often accompanies her self-written songs with a guitar, piano or ukulele. She prefers to sing ballads.

"Never really alone"

The festival continues with Hannah Mannherz. The musician will perform on 1 July from noon to 2.30 pm. Mannherz is in her early 20s and has been writing her own songs since she was twelve. She grew up in Bruchsal. Musically, she deals with topics such as mental health, loneliness and feminism. Last autumn, she released her first EP, "Nie wirklich allein" (Never Really Alone). Mannherz currently lives in Hamburg and is studying singing and songwriting there. The music genre she serves is German pop with hip-hop and electro elements. At NEW HOUSING, she will be taking things a little quieter musically.

"I'm really looking forward to playing at the Tiny House Festival on 1 July, as I'm expecting a good atmosphere. The people who come are curious about new ways of living and I think that creates a good basis for exchanging ideas and spending a good time together with good music on the festival grounds," says Mannherz. The musician finds the idea of limiting her own living space to the bare essentials in order to remain flexible very exciting. She can also imagine trying out this form of living in a few years' time.

The musical finale of NEW HOUSING will be Daniel Martinez with Radiosoul Acoustic on 2 July, also from 12 noon to 2.30 pm. The group plays classics from the 70s and 80s from the legendary Detroit Motown studios. They also play funk numbers from the 90s and current chart hits.

Martinez is pleased to be able to perform at NEW HOUSING: "I think the idea of a Tiny House is very innovative. Not only because the construction and maintenance costs are very low, but also because something good is being done for our environment. Living in a Tiny House requires much less resources."
