LINE-UP REVEALED FOR BERLIN MUSIC WEEK 2012
Berlin Music Week – the world’s most creative city’s answer to The Great Escape – has confirmed its line-up for a five-day, city-powered constellation of music showcases, concerts, parties, conferences, panels, seminars and networking opportunities.
The Berlin Music Week convention, taking place from September 5–7, 2012, offers an in-depth program of live events, film, art, fashion, academics, community, political action and digital and analog commerce. It takes over many of the best-known and established spots the city has to offer: Lido, Magnet, Comet, Astra Kulturhaus, Festsaal Kreuzberg and Fritzclub @ Postbahnhof, in addition to newer clubs like Bi Nuu. Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg is the liveliest and most colourful quarter in the city – a true creative hotbed for music production and music related start-ups and tech, therefore the ideal location for Berlin Music Week.
The Great Escape Festival meets Haldern Pop on Thursday 6 September when the two festival giants collide at Bi Nuu. Both festivals are pioneers in promoting new artists and music and it goes without saying that this event will be celebrated with a super line-up, including Ghostpoet, Jinja Safari, Half Moon Run and Helmut.
Berlin Music Week will wrap the week up with a bang on September 7 and 8, courtesy of the Berlin Festival at Tempelhof and its late night program, Club X-berg. Tasty treats like Bonaparte, Franz Ferdinand, Friendly Fires, Tocotronic, Kraftklub, Sigug Rós, Little Dragon, Paul Kalkbrenner and other high-caliber acts are already confirmed.
