VIVID. Germany is striving to become an annual Post-Rock / Post-Metal event held in northern Germany.

Sagor Som Leder Mot Slutet
Sagor Som Leder Mot Slutet is an instrumental post-rock and post-metal band from Sweden. The independent quartet is made famous for mixing darker and heavier themes with gentleness and fragility – both attacking and caressing the senses at the same time, capturing the elements uniquely and successfully. Each album tells an intense and intimate story from beginning to end, leaving room for the listener’s personal interpretation and also conveying the intention of the band’s somewhat long and obscure name, which translates into “Tales that lead to the end”. The songs are composed and influenced by a wide variety of genres and instrumentations, constantly pushing the limits of contemporary post-rock and post-metal and can surprise even the most experienced ears through the musical narration. This music is made for getting lost and found again.
Where Mermaids Drown
Beautiful confrontations of haunting melodies and ethereal atmospheres. Thanks to striking crescendos, these evolve towards the purest vigour, allowing the riffs to bravely take the floor! More than dreamlike, this clever mix borders on a fully assumed romanticism.
Wander is an all Filipino-American instrumental post-rock band based in San Francisco Bay Area. Formed by brothers Ryan and Christian Francisco, Joseph Aguda, and Bernard Barcela, Their style flows seamlessly from serene to bombastic, from quiet contemplative stillness to angry, cathartic blasts of reverb-drenched, distortion-filled bliss.
