Remind the small things in life, always remember the walk slow, when everybody else around you is in a rush, kiss the people you love and do not forget to travel to broaden your horizon.

Festival: Hechtfest – or the little sister of the BRN

You could translate Hechtfest with pike festival – but no, it’s not about eating pikes and who’s gonna catch the biggest fish from the Elbe. Hechtfest is simply a festival of a district in Dresden called Hechtviertel, which is only a 10-minute-walk away from our hostel, along the Hechtstraße, Rudolf- Leonard Straße and St Pauli Church,…. So instead of eating good smoked fish it is about music, arts, drinking beer, meeting people and having fun. Some people claim the Hechtfest to be the new BRN-festival (we have posted about it earlier this year) only a little smaller.

Anyways, the festival is taking place from August 23rd to August 25th in the Hechtviertel area. So come visit, get some funky souvenir at the little fleamarkets organised by families living in this area, join some concerts, see some art, take part in a football match, or visit the dog race. And the best ting about it: it’s all for free!

You can find more information and the whole programme on the website:
Unfortunately it’s all in German, but I’m sure you can click your way through it ;)

Palais Summer

The Palais Summer has started again. It is a cultural festival taking place in the park of Japanisches Palais in Dresden from August 1st to August 25th. The focus of this festival is on art connected to the awarding of the Canaletto award. But even if you say “I’ve visited the old masters gallery the whole day long – I cannot take anymore art”  you don’t need to worry. It’s not like that. There are some paintings of local artists exhibited somewhere at the side of the garden. What is much more interesting is the programme that is going on during these days. There are piano nights, audio drama nights, you can take part in some yoga courses (at various times during the day), watch movies or join some painting performances such as nude painting in the park – where else can you get this if not in Dresden?!

And what is best: all these events are for free! You can even get blankets or deck chairs there, in case it gets cold at night.

So why not spend a day or two in Dresden and visit the Palais Summer?!

On their website you can get more information and also find the whole programme:

Neustadt Festival BRN


The Bunte Republik Neustadt  (literally “Colourful Republic of Neustadt”) was a micronation in Dresden, in parts of the city’s district Dresden Neustadt, from 1990 to 1993; nowadays every year in June a 3-day cultural festival is celebrated there under the same name. During the annual festival, certain streets are closed off, with vendors selling food and drink, DJs and live bands playing music, and various other performances. To prevent the festival of become too commercial only residents, clubs and bars that are home in the festival area are permitted to sell drinks and food on the streets.

Mellow Mark kostenloses Konzert

Lollis Homestay präsentiert:

Mellow Mark One Man Show – Back to the roots

Solo, nur mit seiner Gitarre, einem Minidrumset, einer Loopstation und
einem Sack voller Songs und Geschichten bewaffnet, geht der momentan in
Potsdam lebende Musik-Nomade jetzt mit seinem Soloprogramm auf
Wohnzimmer-Club-Tour. Er spielt u.a. gleichzeitig Drums, Gitarre und
singt bzw. rapt. Das gibt den bekannten Hits einen ganz neuen ruffen
Touch und kreiert gleichzeitig Nähe zum Publikum. Er sucht den direkten
Kontakt zu den Fans von handgemachter Musik mit guten deutschen Texten.
Mellow baut dabei eine Brücke zwischen seinen Reggae Roots und dem
Songwriter Mellow Mark. Ausgehend von seiner aktuelle EP “Bye Bye
Babylon” und seinen Reggae Songs, streift er dabei auch Hip-Hop, Soul
und Rock. Die Klammer des Ganzen ist der Künstler Mellow Mark, der
ansprechenden und anspruchsvollen Texten das jeweils passende
musikalisches Kleid anlegt.
