Balance Festival is set to run from 31 May to 3 June at Leipzig’s Institut fuer Zukunft.

Hosting a programme of concerts, exhibitions, talks and panel discussions, the focus of Balance Festival is understanding the challenges contemporary club culture is currently facing, and thereby contributing to its boundless energy.

To demonstrate this, the festival has booked DJ Stingray for the line-up, along with live sets from Ikonika, Coucou Chloe and Shygirl. Discwoman will also be making a club night showcase with Umfang, Stud1nt, Rui Ho, Bonaventure, Black Nakhur, Dorothy Parker and Nadine Talakovics.

As for artist talks and panel discussions, PAN’s Bill Kouligas will be in conversation with Lisa Blanning, and Ikonika will head up a talk with Berlin Community Radio’s Yuko Asanuma.
