Music Montag: Snoop Dogg AKA Snoop Lion

by James Glazebrook

I’ve found the perfect excuse to sneak some Snoop Lion onto überlin! We’ve been asking our readers who they are most looking forward to seeing at Greenville Music Festival, and so far Snoop is the top dogg. The Doggfather is narrowly beating out The Hives and Maximo Park, with the live indie stalwarts leading the will-they-won’t-they-show-up Babyshambles and the swing-tastic Parov Stelar Band!

Walk Idiot, Walk! We’re stoked to be finally seeing The Hives live, at this year’s Greenville Music Festival. They’re no spring chickens, but then neither are the Rolling Stones – and we reckon singer Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist can give Mike a run for his money. IT’S A JAGGER-OFF! It’s a Jagger-off.

Want to see The Hives, or other awesome live acts like Turbowolf and Maximo Park in the countryside just outside Berlin? Or do you want to catch exclusive sets from Snoop Dogg AKA Snoop LionMethod Man and Redman, Hurts, Stromae and EDM megalith Avicii? Or maybe you want to see if Babyshambles will actually show up?

Greenville Music Festival 2014

by James Glazebrook


As far as we’re concerned, it’s never too early to plan for festival season, especially when the line-ups are as awesome as this year’s Greenville Music Festival. What they call “one of the most diverse festivals in Germany”, we’ve called a “musical mixed bag”, and we have another descriptor to add: Deutschland’s dopest (literally) festival.

Greenville 2014 is headlined by Snoop Dogg AKA Snoop Lion, and we’re probably the only people to hope he’s still in full-on dread mode. We’ll also be throwing our blunts in the sky for Method Man & Redman and Odd Future’s walking whitey Tyler, The Creator. Other highlights are sure to be überlin favourite Hurts, my main beard rival MC Fitti, killer live acts The Hives, Turbowolf and Maximo Park and hardcore legends Cro-Mags and Sick Of It All. Um, and the Presidents of the United States of America?

Check out Greenville’s well-rounded line-up below, and give it a listen on their Spotify playlist. For more details visit the Greenville Music Festival website, and keep it locked to überlin for the chance to win a pair of tickets. Put your lighters up!
