Welcome to the weekend! Whether in need of some classical music, a funky family party or a neo-noir David Lynch film, the choice is yours.
1. Attend classical music festival
The Agora Music Festival is hosting two concerts at Vianden Castle this weekend. On Saturday, London-based guitarist Giacomo Susani is joined by three string players. On Sunday, Luxembourg's David Ianni will present new compositions as well as Bach and Mozart with the Agora Music Festival Orchestra. Tickets can be purchased for individual nights.
2. Get funky at Pogo Loko
There's quite a family-friendly party taking place at Rotondes this weekend: Pogo Loko! Children from four years old are invited to party together with their parents to the freshest beats and tunes offered by the line-up of DJs and artists, including Spudbencer, The Looped Orchestra, Ourk and Alaska Gold Rush. Everything is welcome, as long as they bring along their party shoes.
3. Learn about Afro-Venezuelan rhythms
Where: Rockhal, 5 Av. du Rock'n'Roll, 4083 Esch-sur-Alzette - Google Maps
When: Saturday, 23 April at 11am and 3pm - more info here
Discover the uplifting vibes of Afro-Venezuelan rhythms in this workshop hosted by Gustavo Morales. Born and raised in Caracas, Morales masters numerous percussion instruments. This free masterclass will give you a personal and unique insight into his heritage and culture. PS: There's also a folk-music workshop that same day with Grammy-nominated cuatro player and producer Jorge Glem. They are back-to-back, why not attend them both?
4. Hear Fai Baba
Fai Baba sings in the Swiss dialect. Since some major international tours, the guitarist and singer reflects on his own language, experiences, life and thoughts. Accompanied by a band on stage, he blends Swiss neo-folk with English rock'n'roll.
5. Watch David Lynch's Lost Highway
From this inventory of imagery, David Lynch fashions two separate but intersecting stories, one about a jazz musician, tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, who suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. The other is a young mechanic drawn into a web of deceit by a temptress who is cheating on her gangster boyfriend. These two tales are linked by the fact that the women in both are played by the same actress.
6. Get fresh produce at City market
What: Instead of grocery store
Where: Hamilius square, 2163 Luxembourg - Google Maps
When: Saturday, 23 April between 7.30am-2pm
The City market is buzzing on Hamilius square twice per week, but have you visited it yet for your local veggies, regional honey or fine handmade crafts? Support regional producers here and stock up your fridge. Runs until 2pm on Saturday (the earlier you come, the better, as the best things run out).
7. Support charities at book sale
What: Spring book sale
Where: Am Duerf Centre Cultural, 1 Rue Henri Lamormesnil, 1915 Luxembourg - Google Maps
