The People Behind FAITHS IN TUNE

 

The FAITHS IN TUNE Interfaith Music Festival couldn't be made possible without those many wonderful people who devote their love, efforts and time to FAITH IN TUNE's cause of promoting interfaith dialogue and peaceful coexistence.

Photography and Video Support

 

Starting with the 2nd festival in 2013, FAITHS IN TUNE Interfaith Music Festival had the privilege of being professionally video-recorded so that the festival's performances could be shared with everyone on the festival's official Youtube channel, including all those who for some reason couldn't make it to the festival in person. Besides those rare occasions when we had funds to pay comapanies to film our festicals, Ruari Lane in 2013, Carlotta Mastrojanni in 2014, Massumeh Rasch and her team in 2015, Camila Morgause in 2017 and Sebastian Römisch in 2019 graciously volunteered to film the festival and did an indispensable, brilliant job in preserving the festival memory for our official Youtube channel!

Since 2017, the brilliant Anton Tal has been Faiths In Tune's official festival photographer in Berlin, but we are also thankful to brilliant photographers Rudi Prott, Tahra Sebti and Odeta Catana among others for taking gorgeous photos at our festivals in London and Berlin.

 

Catering

 

An all-day festival of course could not be successful without great caterers to feed our hungry festival attendees! We have had some great food from wonderful caterers including Murtaja's Middle Eastern Catering and Alberto's Spanish Street Food in London and Karun Bistro in Berlin.
