After having announced acts like Zoot Woman, Glass Animals, Highasakite or Marathonmann, First We Take Berlin broadens the genre spectrum once more. For its 2014 edition on 4th and 5th September, Kindness, Sinkane, Sway Clarke II, HVOB, Rüfüs and many more have been confirmed.

New to the line-up is Kindness, who will bring his sophomore album, for which Robyn also made a contribution, to the stage in September. We are happy to add Sinkane to the 2014 edition, who combines his Sudanese roots with the urban funk of Brooklyn on albums like »Mars«. As part of the »Stil Vor Talent« family, HVOB master the skill of mixing house sounds with a wonderful pop attitude. With his unique combination of electro and pop, Rüfüs manages to capture open-air feeling and transfers it to a club attitude. Mikroboy, on the other hand, will delight us with his take on melancholy indie sounds and first impressions of his new record. Sway Clarke II might come from a hip hop background, yet he's certainly not averse to the aforementioned genres.

Also confirmed: The Barr Brothers, Black Yaya, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Döll, Flyte, Gengahr, M.R. J.A.H., Pimf, Purple Ferdinand, Sandra Kolstad, Seinabo Sey, Suvi, Tropics, TÜSN, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, Waldo The Funk and Werkha.
