Krake 2011

KRAKE ist an annual Berlin based fes­ti­val for chal­leng­ing elec­tronic music and visual trans­duc­tion ini­ti­ated by Nico Deuster of KILLEKILL and Hol­ger Hilgers.

The fes­ti­val took place at the Sui­cide Cir­cus for the first time in 2010 and was an over­whelm­ing suc­cess: numer­ous ground­break­ing artists of high rep­u­ta­tion rocked the crowd such as Warp’s elec­tron­ica heroes PLAID, techno leg­end CRISTIAN VOGEL, RADIOACTIVE MAN of the infa­mous two lone swords­men or break­beat weirdo BOGDAN RACZYNSKI. But there were also a lot of new tal­ents who sur­prised the audi­ence with their fresh­ness. PLASTER with their audio/visual con­cert and KARSTEN PFLUM deserve to be named here.

With this fes­ti­val in 2010 a new ele­ment and an impor­tant addi­tion to the vivid elec­tronic music scene in Berlin was born.

For 2011 KRAKE will take the next level and con­sol­i­date its rep­u­ta­tion as the most dar­ing Berlin club fes­ti­val with a mas­sive line up in 4 venues and, a new web­site and an art­work by inter­na­tion­ally acclaimed graphic design­ers DOPPELDENK. Musi­cians con­firmed for 2011 include JIMMY EDGAR live set, BOLA live set, LEGOWELT live set, MIXMASTER MORRIS dj set, EMIKA live and many, many more.

Go, Krake, go!
