If you think of experimental music, Berlin Atonal comes in mind as being t-h-e b-e-s-t festival on its niche. The festival presents contemporary, interdisciplinary projects at the intersection of sound art, visual and media art, installation and performance, with an emphasis on commissioned work and world premieres.
Berlin Atonal returns this August for its 2019 edition, beginning on Wednesday 28. August and ending on Sunday 1. September. The festival spans five days and over a hundred performances and art projects, including the usual heady supply of specially commissioned audio-visual shows and world premieres in sound, video and performance. All events and activities will be held within the container of the Kraftwerk in the center of Berlin.
Objekt, Nkisi and Kali Malone are among the names to be announced for Berlin Atonal’s 2019 edition. All three artists will perform live A/V sets at the five-day Berlin festival. Objekt will team up with Ezra Miller on visuals as part of his new live show, while Kali Malone will appear alongside visual artist Rainer Kohlberger.
Other artists confirmed for A/V sets at the festival’s imposing Kraftwerk venue in August include Alessandro Cortini, Cyprien Gaillard, Function, Lee Gamble, Nervous System, Pablo’s Eye and Roly Porter.
On the main lineup, Atonal feels particularly refreshed, tapping not just into the experimental techno and big room ambient that have become its calling card, but hardcore, jungle, D&B, rave, house and experimental club. Each year sees around 170 individual musicians, producers, sound and visual artists performing and presenting their work.
Moreover, it’s a special experience to go to Berlin anytime – especially during summer when the weather encourages outgoing. Are you ready to discover Berlin Atonal?
