Berlin’s Krake Festival finalises 2018 line-up

Paula Temple

The annual Berlin-based festival is set to be spread across multiple venues on 23-30 July.

Having now made the final additions to the line-up, the upcoming instalment of Krake will see Paula Temple at the controls, along with Alienata going back-to-back with Reka, Eomac, Nene Hatun, Sean Carpio, Tim Exile, Opal Tapes’ Aja, Pessimist, Hang Aoki, Coal and more.

Extending beyond music, there’ll be a programme of talks and discussions on the accessibility of club culture for individuals with disabilities, an audiovisual workshop led by Geso and a DIY workshop with female:pressure.

Additionally, as a warm-up for the festival itself, Krake have announced a night of experimental music at Berlin’s Elisabethkirche on 13 July. The programme will feature Paul Jebanasam and Tarik Barri’s Continuum, a deep listening piece which pairs Jebanasam’s sacred music inspired compositions with software designer and artist Tarik Barr’s immersive visuals. Also confirmed are Andrea Belfi & Geso who will be presenting a live audiovisual show based around Belfi’s improvisational processes and the melding of electric and acoustic. Finally Zoë McPherson & Alessandra Leone present String Figures, a transmedia project that exists at the intersection of organic and electronic worlds, folk and the global digital space.
