2016 was a great year for the lads from KYTES and in fact it started out with a bang, early on at their performance at the SXSW festival in Austin Texas.
By the end of 2016 the band had played more than 100 shows, including 33 festivals,i.e. Melt! / Ms.Dockville and Puls Open Air. The ‘Heads and Tales’ tour ended on a high with a sold out show at the Munich Muffathalle to 1500 dancing guests.
On December 9th 2016 the band won the prestigious ‘New Music Award’ at the Berlin ‘Blackbox’, hosted by the German interstate radio stations. (1Live, Puls, Fritz, Njoy!, MDR Sputnik, You FM, Das Ding, Bremen Vier, 103.7 Unser Ding).
