Faun are one of the world’s leading bands fusing ancient sounds with modern music and have released 10 studio CDs and 2 DVDs in the meantime. Their CD releases reach top positions in the German album charts (e.g. “Midgard” #3, “Luna” #4). They have also been nominated three times for the Echo, Germany’s biggest music award, and achieved platinum status with their CD “Von den Elben” and gold status with their CD “Luna”.
Faun have played over 900 concerts worldwide and are currently touring with various concert programmes, including a seated, quieter programme for theaters, churches and concert halls (FAUN ACOUSTIC), a cultural programme for seated concert halls, classical and romantic summer concerts and a lively, unseated festival show.
Two years after it was originally announced, the Faun show finally took place on Friday July 8th, 2022 with a completely sold out capacity at the Munich based Circus Krone. It is one of the biggest circuses in Europe and one of the few in Western Europe (along with the Cirque d’hiver de Paris, Cirque d’hiver d’Amiens and Cirque Royal in Brussels) to occupy a building as well. Over the course of a century, Circus Krone Imperium has become recognised worldwide as an institution within the circus world. Its remarkable success was based on the maxim “entrepreneurial spirit, love for animals and absolute seriousness”. This maxim has been maintained throughout the illustrious history of the family that owned and operated Circus Krone.
To celebrate finally this union, the band prepared an extensive repertoire that stretched over almost 3 hours of performance, with an announced break (circus style), and later two encores showing that the night seemed to come out of a fairy tale. The show put together is simply worth seeing. Simplicity, refinement, good taste and a great show of light and sound, without any flaws helps Faun to consolidate the top level to which they belong, and the humility and genuineness with which they do their art deserves all the respect and admiration.
We would like to highlight and thank you for the excellent reception given to us at this event.
