INFORMATION | ABOUT
A Headphone Festival is an Gathering of Music Enthusiasts, Musicians, Designers and Listeners who wants to enjoy the Music over Headphones. The Roots of this Idea comes from a group of people from Paris, France. Due the heavy loudness restrictions in the french Capital they wanna to be able to listen to loud music.. and they invented the so called "Placard" Festival. This is more than 10 years ago. This Idea spread over the world. Since 2003 the label privatelektro decided to make an own Headphone Festival in Leipzig based on the idea of the placard Festival. The first Festivals are so called virtual Festivals for the public and a strong theme was the streaming of the music played on the Fest over Internet. The Last Festival, we did intended some modifications. We used small Radio Transmitters and streamed the whole live Event inside a defined Room. The physical location was more important and the social component of the meeting with musicians and listeners. While the whole time of the concert the audience was able to listen over 3 different ways: over Radios, or Mobil Phones with integrated Radio, the provided Sound-Islands who you will be able to plug into a Headphone-Amplifier (who get the signal direct from the main mixer) and of course trough mini-radios with mini earplugs, we provided at the Festival. Every Concert was recorded and some of the concerts are released through the privatelektro as high quality mp3 with a Creative Commons Licence.
