A Boutique Music Festival Q3AMBIENTFEST Edition 2019 · Apr 12–14 Fabrik Potsdam
Q3Ambientfest is a three-day happening for neoclassical and experimental music, featuring established and emerging artists from diverse genres and origins. The handpicked roster of talent for this year’s festival, founded and carefully curated by brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke, the award-winning Potsdam-based cello-piano duo CEEYS, invites open-minded music lovers to discover today’s contemporary composers and performers. From avant-garde to pop, Q3A holds a mirror to the eclectic architecture of Potsdam, from neo-classical palaces to prefabricated “Plattenbauten” (panelhouses). These Communist-era buildings gave Q3A its name, which is an abbreviation for “Querwandbau” (cross-wall construction). Q3A will take place at Fabrik Potsdam from 12-14 April 2019, in partnership with Dutch music initiative Fluister, piano and coffee co., Traurig Und Untanzbar, Klavins Piano Manufaktúra Kft., SOMA Laboratory, 30CC and Brudenell Piano Sessions. It also joins Piano Day.
Launched in 2017, Q3A hosted 53 artists from 17 different countries, and takes place at fabrik Potsdam, near the world-famous film town Babelsberg, less than an hour away from Berlin.
