On two evenings FORMATION**NOW brings together young artists from different fields: The BLOCK PARTY celebrates FORMATION**NOW as a network - with talk, dance and music, the evening provides an informal platform to get to know each other, exchange ideas and make new plans. It is a low-threshold invitation to young creatives to get involved in the network and celebrates the emancipatory potential of community. Click here for the MUSIC NIGHT OUT!

Since 2017 FORMATION**NOW has been a project of Lukulule e.V. for the promotion and cross-disciplinary networking of young artists. As a curatorial collective, FORMATION**NOW works on event formats, dealing critically with discrimination, in cooperation with Hamburg museums and other cultural venues. The activities of FORMATION**NOW are bundled in a 4-week biannual festival, the next edition of which is planned for September 2021. FORMATION**NOW derives from the diversity of its network, with a clear focus on the perspectives of BiPOC and other marginalized voices.


19:00 – 20:30

Jonny Bauer is the lyricist and singer of the last punk band Oiro. He publishes texts on music, art and politics, writes children's books as well as theater and radio plays. Together with his buddy, co-author and one-man-orchestra Jenz Bumper he presents the book "Shanghai Schaschlik" (Salon Alter Hammer, 2019) in a reading in German and with garage sound: A touching and funny novel about friendship and coolness. A road trip, a best-buddy story. An exciting program of reading, audio play and garage sound!

20:30 – 21:30

with the publishers Jot Vetter and Barbara Lüdde

"Our Piece of Punk. Ein queer_feministischer Blick auf den Kuchen" contains drawings, comics, texts, discussions and declarations of love about the possibilities and limits of queer_feminism in punk. It's not about a look in the rear-view mirror, no "everything was better in the past" and riot grrrl nostalgia: the book rather gives a voice to protagonists who love and live punk and DIY today, with all their quirks, edges and annoyances.
The book is filled with their points of view. Some coincide, some don't: Different and yet similar, they all stand for the diversity of punk in the present.

This year, the festival garden designed by JASCHA&FRANZ will be as special as the summer festival: In Hamburg's pearl of art leisure parks, there will not only be installations, performances and culinary delights, but also a daily changing programme on two open-air stages (details in the programme overview). Due to the Corona-related capacity restrictions for events, tickets for the individual evenings in the garden are available for the symbolic price of 3 Euros in advance and additionally at the Festival box office. A third stage is located on the piazza at the main entrance (free of charge with a seat outside the Peacetanbul Restaurant). With a ticket for another festival performance on the same evening you can enter the garden for free - as long as there is enough capacity, otherwise there might be bridgeable waiting times. 


This year the summer festival takes place under special circumstances. Therefore it is important that we observe security measures to protect everyone and collect the contact information of our guests. This works without complications, but only with your help:

·         Everywhere: Keep a distance of 1.5m, except in self-chosen groups of max. 10 people;

·         In all indoor areas: Wear mouth-nose-protection, except in fixed seating areas;

·         In the festival garden and in the Peacetanbul Restaurant: please always register as soon as you take a seat. The registration is done analogue with pen and paper or digital via a QR CODE. More information on site.
