Concerts in Bucharest this April


Kraak &Smaak, Watain, Horia Mihail in the ‘Travelling Piano Man,’ Smiley, and Taxi.

Dutch trio Kraak & Smaak and Swedish black metal band Watain will perform this April in the capital city alongside Smiley, Taxi, and Hora Mihail, who will make a pit stop in Bucharest from his ‘Travelling Piano Man’ tour.
Hailing from the Netherlands, Kraak & Smaak’s Oscar de Jong, Mark Kneppers, and Wim Plug got together in 2003. The band will be playing at the Colectiv Club in Bucharest as part of the second party organized by Oxygen. Heavy names in the industry like Pete Tong and Annie Nightingale showed interest in the trio ever since their first release. Kraak & Smaak’s debut album, ‘Boogie Angst,’ was released in 2006 in the UK and the following year in the U.S. and several singles off the album featured on the soundtrack of numerous hit TV series, including Grey’s Anatomy, Men in Trees, and What About Brian?
Swedish black metal group Watain will also be performing at the Colectiv Club on April 7. Part of the black metal elite, Watain has quickly gained a cult following and is now one of the few bands whose music and visual concept precisely define the idea of black metal, as it was originally conceived, a vision which has propelled them into the league of extreme bands. In 2013, Watain released ‘The Wild Hunt,’ their fourth record, distributed by Century Media Records and promoted in a massive international tour that included headlining one of the largest European music festivals. The Bucharest concert is expected to be a macabre representation of the Watain universe. The show will also contain unique visual effects such as occult symbols filling the Colectiv stage and pyrotechnics. In other words, the show is to resemble the concert off their ‘Opus Diaboli’ DVD.
On April 10, Taxi will play at the Hard Rock Café in the capital, and on April 25 Smiley, one of the most beloved artists at the moment, will perform at Club Live. In the fourth edition of the ‘Travelling Piano Man’ tour, taking place from March 21 until May 14, pianist Horia Mihail will travel through 13 Romanian towns, as well as to New York and Chisinau. On April 23 and 25, Bucharest audiences will have a chance to hear him live at Sala Radio.
