Berlin Festival: Next wave of acts
After having elaborated on their 2014 concept in more detail last time, the Berlin Festival now puts plans into action. Alongside several new act announcements for the festival taking place from 5-7 September at Arena Park, first deals with Berlin's club institutions are set in stone. On top, the day ticket sales have started.
In 2012, Digitalism already brought the house down with their electro pop hybrid at Berlin Festival. This year, the renowned duo will be luring the crowd with a DJ set. Dieter Meier of Yello fame cut his first solo record this year, which we can't wait to see live on the airfield. Also confirmed are Hudson Mohawke, Kindness, Rustie, Jacques Greene and a DJ set by Jazzanova. First We Take Berlin, Berlin Music Week's showcase festival, will, once again, bring all the up-and-coming talents to its very own stage at Arena Park. HVOB, Highasakite and Rüfüs have confirmed so far.
The Berlin club institution, Yaam, which recently found a new home next to the Schillingbrücke at the river Spree, will host the Yaam Yard, boasting international culinary specialities, sport activities, a chill-out area as well as an open-air stage. Splash!-Mag curates part of the programme, bringing Motrip, Taktloss, Karate Andi, DJ Stickle, Edgar Wasser & Fatoni as well as Retrogott & Hulk Hodn to Arena Park.
SchwuZ, one of Berlin's leading LGBT clubs, will also curate its own floor, bringing its legendary London Calling party to Berlin Festival amongst other highlights which will be announced soon. Sampson's Cherry-O-Kie, on the other hand, takes Karaoke performances to the next level with backup dancers and loads of glitter. DJs who will be getting behind the decks at the Mvschi Kreuzberg Floor or the Quarantine Station will be announced shortly.
