In 2014, there was no radio station in Europe and in the world that had stopped broadcasting, almost uninterruptedly, the undisputed success of the year: Stolen Dance by Milky Chance. The single became an hit signed by - at the time - just twenty years old German musicians. While Teutonic pop usually struggled to climb the charts and cross national borders, Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch reversed this trend by making themselves known all around the world (the video exceeded 125 million views on YouTube). Originally from Kassel in north-western Germany, the two became friends during their university years, which allowed them to combine their passions and found the Milky Chance, after some experiences as members of other bands.
Their debut with the album Sadnecessary earned them the goal to perform at the Coachella stage in 2015, just two years after its release. With Rehbein on guitar and vocals and Dausch on production, bass and percussion, Milky Chance have become unstoppable mixing reggae, jazz and r'n'b influences with unmistakable and sentimental folk sounds. Three records later, they evolved in style and remained at the top of the international charts, retain simplicity and spontaneity of a music that speaks of love and emotions, those that they still feel as if it was the first day of their great career. Don't miss the opportunity to hear them live at Fabrique; their concert will be a great warm-up for your weekend! On Saturday 15th, Mavi Phoenix, a gender-fluid boy, will open the show, rewriting (not only) the boundaries of pop gender.
