Pop-Kultur’s Christian Morin on “bringing back meaning and content to music”

Pop-Kultur Festival will be back in Berlin for it’s fourth year between August 15 and 17. We caught up with curator Christian Morin to talk about how the goals of the festival have evolved and what to expect from this year’s lineup, which features Neneh Cherry amidst a “very strong female presence.”

Morin says that he wants the festival “to bring back meaning and content…to music, and the other goal is the transfer of knowledge.” One of the festival’s strong features is Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs, the talent program which connects young talents with professionals from the music industry. Calls for submission are open until May 23rd.
