The first day already presents Min King - the band around fresh sound and vocal wonder Philipp Albrecht brings the first real German Soul in Schaffhausen on the big stage. Then follows the appearance of Rodrigo Y Gabriela and C.U.B.A. Rodrigo Y Gabriela are probably the fastest, most accurate and best guitar players in the world. On "Das festival" they are also bringing along the Cuban band C.U.B.A and the brand new single album "Area 52" with it.
