Relevant rap with depth

Rapper, presenter, author – FIVA’s CV is something to be seen and heard. It’s been over 20 years since her debut album “Spiegelschrift” was released on the legendary Hamburg label “Buback”. In the intervening years, she has reinvented herself musically time and again without losing sight of her greatest strength: lyrics that go far below the surface, draw emotions and caricature everyday life from completely new perspectives. It’s not for nothing that FIVA has been considered one of the most relevant German female MCs for years and, since the latest series of “Starmania”, she’s been a real winner in the TV jury arena too.

The fact that the world has been thrown off balance by pandemic and warlike conditions has not left FIVA untouched either, and instead inspired her to write the song “So viel Meer”, which revolves around doubt and obstacles, opportunities and confidence, comfort and hope – without resorting to emotionalism or kitsch.

And FIVA will also be celebrating everything else that is part of life’s rich tapestry on the Tanzcafé Festival stage in St. Anton. Come and celebrate with her!

Support Act: Spilif

Striking the balance between boom bap, indie and jazz

With her philosophically reflective lyrics and a sound that skilfully combines boom bap, indie and jazz, Innsbruck-based rapper SPILIF has made a name for herself on the local hip-hop scene. With the release of her debut album “irgendetwas das du liebst” (Something you love), she is now embarking on another musical chapter and taking a step towards being a live band. 

Working alongside outstanding musicians, she has created an unmistakable hip-hop band sound that captivates audiences with a mix of clever wordplays and rousing live performances.

Spilif embodies casual sounds, famous grooves and a cool yet scratchy voice that immediately casts a spell over you. At the Arlberg music festival, she will storm the festival stage together with DJ Rudi Montaire. Open your ears – it’s bound to be exciting!
