Gas, Lindstrom and Peverelist are amongst the guests that will play the Berlin festival next year.
Wolfgang Voigt is set to open the festival with a special performance of his Gas project at Volksbühne Am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. The Kompakt man's ambient techno project got a glowing review from Philip Sherburne earlier this year, so expectations will run high for this rare performance.
Over the following nine nights there will be nine different parties, all held at Maria Am Ostbahnhof. A wide range of styles will be represented—from disco to dubstep and everything in between—with sets planned from Mujava, Lindstrom, The Emperor Machine, Benjamin Brunn, Thomas Fehlmann, Fuck Buttons, Prins Thomas, Tim Exile and a showcase from the Raster-Noton crew.
As with last year, RA will be co-hosting the final Friday of the festival and bringing in French-Canadian techno wizard Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts, as well as Mathias Kaden, Touane and Mobilee boss Anja Schneider. As if that wasn't enough dance floor goodness already, Henrik Schwarz and Jesse Rose will also be performing their first ever collaborative live set as Black Rose, plus Oliver $ and Zombie Disco Squad will be banging out the beats as only they can in the second room.
The following night is equally exciting, as the UK dubsteppers face off with the Detroit cognoscenti. Usual suspects Skream and Benga will be there, in addition to UK Garage pioneer Zed Bias. Bristol's Peverelist will be representing the more techno-influenced end of the spectrum, and there will be live performances from both Pole and Bass Clef. Daniel Bell will be playing live in the second room with a new four person line-up, although who exactly will be joining him is being kept firmly under wraps at the moment. Detroit resident Omar-S, Detroit-influenced Dutchmen Newworldaquarium and Syncom Data will prop up the bill.
Two days later, the festival will come to an end with a party at Berghain. Montreal's Mutek Festival gets into the fun here co-programming the party, celebrating the fact that both events are celebrating their 10th year. The line-up? Mutek's assistant programmer Vincent Lemieux and fellow Canadian Mike Shannon will go head-to-head with the king and queen of Berlin's techno scene: Cassy and Tobias Freund.
