A NIGHT OF GLITTER AND PENISES
start: 22:00 // pre sale 10€
FURFRIEND — live
HARD TON — live
ANKLEPANTS — live
The wednesday at the Berghain Kantine has a tradition. The history of the Killekill label which is the main force behind the Krake Festival has started here, and this day in the mid of the week has been an essential part of the festival from the beginning.
For this year we have prepared a collection of artists with a focus not on sound and music only, but on strong and weird live performances.
The new project FURFRIEND is all new. Their first release so far is just about to be released on Killekill in june, but with their one track that was featured on the Killekill Megahits compilation last winter they have created a big fuzz about them worldwide already.
Gay porn jack they call their sound, and this is what it is: mega explicit lyrics, that will probably have to undergo parental advisory laws in many countries over heavy jacking beats. With a live performances that is being prepared for a long, long time now, they will rule the dancefloors very soon. Get ready for some serious shit!
HARD TON are the italian duo with the larger than life disco sound and a surprising love of metal. Fused together in 2008 from the musical loins of DJ Wawashi and heavy metal singer Max. Sylvester-styled falsettos conjure up memories of smoky dancefloors during the heady days of HI-NRG, which combined with a contemporary sound of accelerated beats and screaming acid basslines, shows a nod to the past can result in a slap across the face for the present. Their incredibly well designed costumes show a serious disrespect to any rules of mainstream media standards, but are of unbelievable beauty at the same time. And their live performance is incredible.
ANKLEPANTS, the third act to perform live that night, hmmmm, how can you describe that??
Think of dubstep-techno-breakcore-electro-IDM performed of a guy in a dracula costume and a mask on that features a moving penis in his face. Nuff said?
There will also be some djs that night, but basically these performances will blow off your hair that night.

VISUALS: THE 29NOVFILMS
For the weekend we move on to our main venue, the Suicide Circus which offers a midsize club floor with a very good sound system and a beautiful outside open air area.
DASHA RUSH, who is known mostly for her dark techno music, will present a very special experimental live set this night to open the main floor for the night.
UNTOLD has proven himself as one of the most relevant dance music producers of the last years. He produces one milestone after the other, leaving all genre borders behind, creating epics that will last much, much longer than 99% of what is being put out nowadays.
PHON.O is a Berlin based producer who has been around for a while, but just recently picked up speed and became a substantial part of the 50 weapons family of the infamous Modeselektor guys. We are proud to present his bass-heavy and melodic live set.
BILL YOUNGMAN has been around for almost 20 years with releases on legendary labels like Serotonin, Scandinavia and Tresor. He crossed many styles from melodic electro to really, really harsh techno, but recently he seems to have found his very own style. The music he released on Killekill in the last two years show a very singular apporach to techno and electro. percussive, deep, melodic, toolish — all at the same time.
More acts are to be announced soon.

FIST VAN ODOR (the almost people, killekill)
The evening will be opened by a mid night concert by FENNESZ. He produces ambient music of an extraordinary quality by layering more and more drones and little sound details taken from field recordings to build up sound walls of unheard intensity. To hear this on a proper club sound system will be a unique experience.
DOPPLEREFFEKT - we can’t describe how happy we are to have this legend at our festival! Godfathers of electro, the purest of all, they have produced uncountable anthems of this genre. Their first release in years is scheduled for later this year, so we are awaiting a live show with new exclusive material. W O W!
Later in the night techno legend Adam X will deliver some dark and heavy techno under his alias TRAVERSABLE WORMHOLE.
More acts to be announced!
