Kerala Dust
Group 5 Copy
4 aug

Kerala Dust was formed in London in 2016. Growing up on the sounds of CAN, The Velvet Underground and Tom Waits while spending blurry mornings in nightclubs, the band combines those disparate influences of psychedelic rock, blues and techno into one.

“Driving sounds for late nights; or perhaps you’re on a street somewhere in the Western hemisphere, and a shiny new car passes you by too fast, like something from a glossy magazine, and before you know it, it’s gone again.”

Kerala Dust are: Edmund Kenny on vocals/electronics, Harvey Grant on keys, Lawrence Howarth on guitar.

Their live performances are a constant conversation around the sounds from the studio. Pieces are re-interpreted, looped, dismantled, and put back together again. Since first touring in 2017, Kerala Dust have played over 150 international shows in the USA, Europe, Mexico, Russia, Turkey, Dom. Republic and many more countries. Events such as DGTL (Tel Aviv), Dockville (Hamburg), Lightning in a Bottle (California), Kater Blau (Berlin), Tropico (Mexico), Sonar (Barcelona) are but a few in a long list of festivals and nightclubs that Kerala Dust have played in only a couple of years.

The members of Kerala Dust work from their studio in Berlin.

Dear visitor,

With a lot of energy and confidence and after years of research and inventory, the preparations for the Flycatcher Rock Festival started last year. We have worked together with very experienced people and companies from the festival world to organize a solid festival with a high-quality line-up. In the end, Flycatcher did not succeed in its set-up, because, despite the preparation, the right experience and knowledge, but certainly also a good line-up, there was not enough enthusiasm for this festival. That made us decide to cancel the festival because of too little interest from other potential visitors. That was a very difficult decision, but there was no other option.

For the festival, all parties involved worked hard to promote and implement the festival in a responsible manner, but the fact remains that due to the disappointing ticket sale, the financial risks were too high. The only conclusion that could ultimately be drawn was to cancel the festival. This decision has not been easy, but it was the only pure option.

In the background, we have been working hard in recent months to limit the financial consequences of the festival and to investigate possible alternatives. The fact is that all input and funds received have been paid to bands and suppliers, but also that there are no further funds left to pay the rest of the claims. To our great regret, this also applies to the people who have bought a ticket, but also to partners such as Stanislaus Brewskovitch who have suffered a major financial setback due to this situation. The situation has been submitted to various authorities and the consequence is that Flycatcher Festival BV will cease to exist.

We are very sorry that this has happened.
