Stereolab, Deerhunter and more announced for Synästhesie Festival


The Berlin festival is celebrating its fifth year.

Synästhesie have announced the line-up for this year’s instalment, set to take place across 16-17 November. Stereolab, Deerhunter, Priests, Black Lips and many more are set to appear at the two-day event. Taking place in Berlin, the festival looks to offer psychedelic sets across genres. According to the festival’s website, there will be everything from “zone-out garage rock to trippier, synthier traditions.”

“We’re amazed at how the festival has grown the last three years. It was something we were doing for a small community within the city. A scene within a scene,” founder and curator of the festival Olli Remzi stated. “After all, the festival is really just an extension of 8MM bar. But instead of playing the favourite records of our favourite bands, we now get to invite our favourite bands over. I think it was something that was sorely lacking in Berlin.”

Other highlights over the weekend include a conversation between Creation Records founder Alan McGee and The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcombe.
