Ankathie Koi performing at a music festival near you this summer — go there, she’s fabulous

Ankathie Koi is more than likely performing at a music festival near you this summer

It is going to be a busy summer for Vienna-based German singer songwriter and pretty much performance artist Ankathie Koi.

That is because Koi has a huge number of festivals she will be performing in around Europe, as she continues to promote her recently released debut album I Hate The Way You Chew.



Festivals that range from an appearance at the Kosmonaut Festival in Chemnitz, Germany to a performance on the Ö1 Stage at Vienna’s Donauinselfest — the world’s biggest open-air music festival — Ankathie’s unique brand of electro-pop and dance music will be out there for millions to see.

And to fall in love with.

But, it’s not just festivals that are featuring large in Ankathie Koi’s life this year, either.

At the end of April, Antkathie was also one of the artists nominated for an Amadeus Austrian Music Award — Austria’s version of the Grammy Awards. A massive and well-deserved accomplishment for someone who is still relatively new on the Austrian music scene, having only launched her solo career in Austria with her EP Sticky Fins in 2014.

So impressive is Ankathie Koi’s work, however, she has even attracted the attention of Austria’s most famous artist, Conchita, who, apparently, has been aware of Koi and what she does for a while. And been completely in love with it, and with Ankathie herself.

So much so, Conchita was not only besotted with Koi’s music videos during her own series of video commentaries about the Amadeus Awards nominees, Koi was the person Conchita wanted to meet at the Amadeus Awards. A show Conchita herself hosted. (And yes they met and, from a video of the meeting I saw, fell in love just that little bit more).

So, let’s just say, it is still only May, and 2018 is already looking like it may be one of Ankathie Koi’s best yet. You go, girl!
