we had a wonderful hostess on the night, and a beautiful walled garden to perform in. cosy, but amazing.

what a time to be a alive as an indie-band

ladies and gentlemen, we have reached the half-time of our first festival summer as DOTE.

To give you a short overview of the last few weeks: Luke has climbed a balcony – naked. Jonah nearly broke his jawbone. Niclas has slept on the floor of a cellar in the middle of nowhere, and Moe was drunk at least one time, which is a pretty freakish thing for him to do. Things got crazy sometimes. Apart from all the beer we drunk, all the lovely people we met and talked to, we have to say: Thank you.


Starting at “HardtBeat Festival” in Mönchengladbach around a month ago; we played a show every weekend from there on and each of them has been ridiculously amazing. The crowd, no matter where, was absolutely welcoming and gorgeous. We are very flattered by the support we have received throughout every concert from all of you. We had a lot of fun and we're hoping to continue the good vibes at the end of July, when we start again at “viel & draußen Festival” in Heilbronn.

We hope to see you all again at the upcoming gigs you can see below. 




The boys from DOTE
