Berlin Festival: Round Up The Line-Up & Win 1×2 Tickets!

Only a month to go til the Ber­lin Fest­ival opens its doors at the Tem­pel­hofer Air­port, and I’m ever so excited. I count most of the acts announced to my favor­ites of the past years, so I want to take a moment to ded­ic­ate this post to them.

James Blake — I’ve seen James Blake live, present­ing his debut album, in a gig at Berg­hain. It was an expens­ive gig to say the least, but totally worth it. His beyond-genre soul and dub­step mix has hyped him up and down the inter­nets and made him a very-welcome artist in Ber­lin. One of my per­sonal head­liners of the year!

Her­cules and Love Affair — Her­cules are a Ber­lin insti­tu­tion. They’re the defin­i­tion of our party scene: house and vocals clev­erly com­bined, dressed in glit­ter and con­fetti. I dare you not to dance when these guys deliver their amaz­ing sets, and I dare you not to be impressed when they make the world shake with their tre­mend­ous voices.

Diplo - this guy is my per­sonal rock­star for the past two or three years. Everything he touches is instant-gold — from M.I.A. to Chris Brown, let alone his own releases — House, Hip Hop and Rio Baile Funk res­ult­ing in one massive dance party. He had a gig-gone-wrong (due to the rain, of course) a couple of weeks ago for a Fash­ion Week party, and if he deliv­ers the same at Ber­lin Fest­ival, then this is going to be my favor­ite act to talk about for the weeks to come.

Mount Kim­bie — What to say? With their min­im­al­istic, dark and atmo­spheric dubstep-vibes they’ve been pretty much included in every elec­tronic mix from here to the Boiler Room. I haven’t seen them play live yet so I hope my expect­a­tions will be met.

Oh Land — Oh Land does what the Swedish do best: sweet pop music with a twist. Her show a couple of months ago at Privatclub was small and intim­ate, but that was per­fect: the blonde beauty that calls her­self Oh Land had the atten­tion of every per­son in the audi­ence. I love this kind of pop music that stays fresh and funky without com­ing off as over-produced bubble-gum stuff. Which might be the dif­fer­ence between Swedish and US music in a nutshell..

So, this was my per­sonal round up. Now YOU have the chance to win tick­ets to see this extraordin­ary line up.
