mon 6th of august
KRAKE OPENING @ Passionskirche

MURCOF — live
FLOEX — live

We start off the fes­ti­val with a mas­sive line up of the finest in ambi­ent and elec­tron­ica, pre­sented in one of the most beau­ti­ful loca­tions in Berlin, the Pas­sion­skirche, an old church in the cen­ter of the city.
MURCOF is a very mod­ern com­poser, who uti­lizes tech­nol­ogy to make epic, mov­ing suites of music with a spir­i­tual under­tow. He draws on min­i­mal­ism, post mod­ernism and baroque music to cre­ate music that moves the mind and heart. The shows of this south amer­i­can artist are rare, and we are par­tic­u­larly proud to have him on board this year. Pio­neer­ing multi media artist THOMAS KÖNER is the sec­ond head­liner of this evening, another spe­cial fea­ture we are proud to present.

open doors:   19:00

PERC — exper­i­men­tal live set
LUCY — exper­i­men­tal live set
DADUB — exper­i­men­tal live set

At the Berghain Kan­tine, the ori­gianl home to all Killekill events we col­lab­o­rate with STROBOSCOPIC ARTEFACTS, one of the most pro­lific con­tem­po­rary techno labels, to present STELLATE, a series of 10“es, they release, with a strong focus on the dark and exper­i­men­tal side of elec­tronic music.

Packed with a line up of high­est qual­ity, this night will be the way you know this almost leg­endary label: explo­rative, forward-looking, mind-blowing.

Addi­tional a lec­ture (in ger­man only) is going to take place before:
Im Rah­men des 3. Krake-Festivals melden sich nun auch die Berliner Autoren zu Wort. Scho­nungs­los wid­men sie sich dem Phänomen Feiern, beleuchten die Sehn­süchte des viel zu oft missver­stande­nen Berliner Druffis und loten die Untiefen der men­schlichen Psy­che in Folge von Rauschmit­telmiss­brauch aus. Das selb­ster­nan­nte Experten­gremium wird ange­führt von dem Neuköll­ner Hob­by­b­otaniker Uli Han­ne­mann. Unter­stützt wird der Best­seller­autor von der Clubex­per­tin Anne Hahn und dem Friedrichshainer Chillmeis­ter André Bergelt.

For fri­day and sat­ur­day the KRAKE FESTIVAL moves to his head­quar­ter, the infa­mous Sui­cide Cir­cus, a mid­size club with two floors and a long, long tradition.

On fri­day we present a mid­night con­cert of ULRICH SCHNAUSS, undoubt­edly one of the most pro­lific ambi­ent pro­duc­ers of all times.

Also play­ing are SHRUBBN!! a col­lab­o­ra­tion of T.raumschmiere and Schieres focussing on dark drones, who present their lat­est coop­er­a­tion with the visual trio TRANSFORMA, known for his work with Appa­rat and oth­ers. With POLE and oth­ers fol­low­ing on the main floor, this night will cover any­thing from ambi­ent to techno cross­ing over dub techno, elec­tro and whatever.

On the out­side floor ALEX SMOKE is keen to present an extended dar­ing dj set far away from how you may know him. And we are happy to have him do exactly that.

This is what we want, and this is what this fes­ti­val is about!

Start Time: 23:00


sat, 11th of august

TIM EXILE (warp) — live
CEEPHAX ACID CREW (rephlex) — live

BARKER (ostgut ton, leisure sys­tem)
SWARM INTELLIGENCE (skank, sta­sis)
KRAKE BOYS (krake)
MONTY (vru music)

The sat­ur­day night focusses on rougher sounds on the main floor. Vocal­ist TIM EXILE will leave you stand­ing with your mouth open, when he builds weird elec­tron­ica tracks from sounds he makes with his mouth only. Rephlex-artist CEEPHAX ACID CREW, brother to the infa­mous Square­pusher, will kick the audience’s bot­tom with his very own def­i­n­i­tion of an acid inferno. Another high­light is the new­comer scot­tish duo LAKKER, who fas­ci­nated with their recent releases on KILLEKILL and blue­print and the unique mix­ture of techno, IDM and dub­step, they work on. No won­der their tracks get played a lot by peo­ple like Aphex Twin or Surgeon.

Start time: 23:00
