We collected a full review about past festivals here.
DAVE, in its self-perception, is a network, open for everyone who wishes to engage themselves culturally and artistically. The team understands itself as a platform, as a network and a mediator, as well as a supporter of young artists of the electronic music scene. Organiser and promoter of all activities is DAVE e.V.
DNN: “It is more about encounters, about room for direct instead of virtual exchange. An exchange between scene connaisseurs, an exchange between the broad public, an exchange between various institutions, young and old, the lovers of high culture and the party guest. You could say: Everybody is welcome!”
MDR: “The festival programme shows, how the encounter between the flickering lights of techno-bass and prestigious performance venues would work.”
Urbanite: “DAVE blurs the lines of electronic subculture.”
SAX: “DAVE is rather a festival for club culture, a branched sub, super and intermediate structure for a scene that has its beginnings and roots in countless others and is also subject to a rapid and incredibly exciting development.”
Sächsische Zeitung: “Within their honary work, they ensure that the scene in Dresden is networked, promote young talents, offer performance opportunities with their festival and ensure that artists do not leave the city for better platforms in cooler cities.”
Ad-Rem: “DAVE enriches Dresden’s subculture and also wants to become active beyond it.”
Dresdner: “It’s a beautiful idea to present club culture in five days not only where it belongs, but also in more uncommon places.”
