For Saturday and Sunday we will use a new venue: Grießmühle in Neukölln, one of the underground places of the Berlin scene today, rough, loud and dirty – but with the appeal of a place run by people with passion. During daytime you will be able to browse through records of selected electronic music labels, visit a DIY workshop for building your own synthesizer, or watch a screening of “I dream of wires” – the legendary documentary about the history, demise and resurgence of the modular synthesizer – performances and much more. At night you will find the labels’ artists playing on one of the many floors indoors and outdoors. From weirdo electro to dark industrial techno, from new wave to house and IDM, everything will be there.
Come on down with us!
