KRAKE FESTIVAL DAY I: OPENING 
Urban Spree Gallery // doors open: 20:00 // cost: 12€ Advance, 15€ Ticket Box

We open the fes­ti­val with an arty night, pre­sent­ing live per­for­mances of out­stand­ing artists. The Urban Spree Gallery is an amaz­ing venue, com­bin­ing indus­trial aes­thet­ics with a sweet, per­sonal DIY flair, per­fect for our opening.

TRANSFORMA are video artist group known for their col­lab­o­ra­tive work with Appa­rat, Dieter Meier, Alex Banks and many oth­ers. They work with images of nat­ural mate­ri­als that they pro­duce and project in real time on stage. For Krake they coop­er­ate with NACKT, a live music per­former of rarely seen qual­ity, who will impro­vise on the grand piano plus effects and other instru­ments to the mor­bid pic­tures that Trans­forma produce.

THE NEST are a group of musi­cians from Cologne and Berlin con­sist­ing of mem­bers of Bohren & Der Club Of Gore, Desmond Denker and Tannhäuser Ster­ben & Das Tod. “Highly min­i­mal and with due atten­tion to space and atmos­phere, ‘Music For Dri­vers’ is poised with a sharp ten­sion between con­trast­ing organic and mechan­i­cal sound sources; field record­ings lend an unpre­dictabil­ity and sense of atmos­pheric breadth while their patiently attuned play­ing paints the space between with ethe­real, oth­er­worldly strokes of syn­the­sizer, sax­o­phone and electronics, constantly mor­ph­ing between moods which are never quite just dark and light, maybe best described in terms of psy­che­delic, hal­lu­ci­na­tory light shows.” said Boomkat about their first album. We are await­ing their per­for­mance fol­low­ing their sec­ond album released in june 2014 on Album Label.

Third live act of the night KHAN takes the audi­ence into a totally dif­fer­ent direction. A nun seek­ing enlight­en­ment. Khan as a male hus­tler includ­ing his own phone sex line on 1–900 Get-Khan.  His pop fueled live shows often play­ing with gen­der roles are sought after for a reason.

As a lit­tle extra the robots tak­ing part in the TERMINATOR TOURNAMENT on sat­ur­day will be show­ing off on the robot cat­walk so you know which one to bet on!

TRANSFORMA & NACKT pres. GRAETE — live

Wednes­day, Aug 6th
KRAKE FESTIVAL DAY II: MINDWAVES MUSIC vs. CRAZY LANGUAGE vs. KILLEKILL 
Berghain Kan­tine // doors open: 20:00 //reading starts: 21:00 //club night starts 22:00 cost: read­ing only: 7€ // club night (incl. read­ing): 12€ advance, 15€ ticket box

The Wednes­day night at Berghain Kan­tine is the clas­si­cal Krake night. This was where the whole Killekill story started, and a night here was part of every edi­tion of the fes­ti­val so far. This year Killekill meets up with the labels of two close friends to the Killekill fam­ily: Crazy Lan­guage and Mind­waves Music. Both labels stand for a dar­ing approach to elec­tronic music, Mind­waves Music focussing on play­ful elec­tron­ica and IDM, Crazy Lan­guage focussing more on abstract tunes. Com­bined with a small proper Killekill line up, and a read­ing of club related sto­ries of selected con­tem­po­rary Ger­man authors this night will cross it all over from intel­lec­tu­al­ity to pure dance floor madness.

line up:

Mind­waves Music Artists:
SOFUS FORSBERG (mind­waves music) — live
KARSTEN PFLUM (mind­waves music) — live

Crazy Lan­guage Artists:
LOGICAL DISORDER (crazy lan­guage) — live

Sat­ur­day, Aug 9th
KRAKE FESTIVAL DAY IV: FINAL MAYHEM
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.
