Closing: Krake Festival 2014

1966853_10201425363456966_1830337286_nWelcome to another great festival deep down!

For 2014 Krake Festival is coming up with a totally new set up. For the main event on saturday Krake Festival cooperates with the Urban Spree Gallery, which area is combined with that of Suicide Circus to offer you a massive festival place to wander around between several floors full with music and arts. A thing like this offered in the centre of the city is extraordinary and will make this year’s edition an unforgettable event. For now, here is a rough outline of the festival as a whole. More details to follow. Stay tuned!

KRAKE is an annual Berlin based fes­ti­val for chal­leng­ing elec­tronic music. Krake means octo­pus and the fes­ti­val is organ­ised in a com­pa­ra­ble way: reach­ing out to selected loca­tions dur­ing one week pre­sent­ing the best in elec­tronic music, what­ever style it is.

 Tick­ets are avail­able online:
Con­tact: +49 30–89759460

Sat­ur­day, Aug 9th
Sui­cide Cir­cus & Urban Spree Gallery // doors open: 22.00 // cost: 15€ Advance, 18€ Ticket Box

The Sat­ur­day night will be a four dimen­sional blast full with great music, out­stand­ing visual art and every­thing that goes in between categories.

On the Urban Spree floor we have our very spe­cial of this year’s edi­tion going, the TERMINATOR TOURNAMENT, the robot bat­tle of the cen­tury. Sci­ence fic­tion now!
Rag­ing com­bat machines built by low tech robot tin­ker­ers meet in the ulti­mate bat­tle at the fight­ing arena dur­ing the Krake Fes­ti­val. The audi­ence bets which robot will be the last sur­vivor, and which ones will bleed all elec­trons out of their wires. The coolest fight­ing style and the most sophis­ti­cated way of dying are also judged and rewarded by a jury, which is recruited ad hoc at the spot. Come and wit­tness the bomb — astic show!

This spec­ta­cle will be accom­pa­nied by the biggest synth nerds Berlin has to offer: The TRANSISTORS OF MERCY will blwo your mind with the meters and meters of synths they will bring to jam on FOR HOURS!

The Urban Spree Con­cert Room will be hosted by a new out­stand­ing label from Athens, Modal Analy­sis, pre­sent­ing their label artists YVES DE MEY (part of SENDAI with Peter van Hoe­sen), KONDAKTOR, ANFS and 3.14 along­side a mind-blowing and recently heav­ily acclaimed noise techno act AnD from Manchester.

On the Sui­cide Club Floor we present a fine selec­tion in elec­tro. DMX KREW with his hilar­i­ous live show using drum machines, synths and mic shall is a must, OVUCA from Aphex Twin’s label Rephlex and FELIX KUBIN with his dadaist Kraftwerk-influenced elec­tro are as well. Killer!

The Sui­cide Open Air Floor shows off with POSITIVE CENTRE with his slowmo dub, PATRIK SKOOG aka AGARIC and RECURSION with their vivid ana­log techno sets, and sev­eral out­stand­ing local djs.

Krake Fes­ti­val col­lab­o­rates with Antic Teatre for the third edi­tion of B2B–Barcelona 2 Berlin. An inter­na­tional exchange of elec­tronic music between Barcelona and Berlin set up by Antic Teatre, B2B will have three artists from Barcelona’s elec­tronic music scene. The artists tak­ing part in this 2014 edi­tion – Pina, Spear and Spy Dj – will per­form at the apex of the Fes­ti­val, on Sat­ur­day August 9th at Sui­cide Cir­cus and Urban Spree Gallery.
