BOYS NOIZE TO HEADLINE BERLIN FESTIVAL...
Berlin Festival returns to Tempelhof Airport on the 9th and 10th of September with Boys Noize leading the pack.
Having called off last year's event in the wake of the Love Parade disaster, which happened just a few weeks prior, the Berlin Festival has resurfaced with expanded efforts in 2011 with the additional Club Xberg program at Arena. On the Friday, the club leg will host a trio of local label showcases, including one by the electro-pop imprint Greco-Roman. Here is also where the bulk of the festival's DJs will perform, including the likes of A-Trak, DJ Hell, Diplo, Brodinski, Mr. Oizo and Jimmy Edgar.
Over the two days Tempelhof will mostly host bands with an electronic edge, such as Battles, Apparat (with his band), Hercules & Love Affair, The Rapture. Mount Kimbie lend their pensive bass to Friday's bill along with James Blake, whose melodic bass-inspired pop has managed to breach both underground and popular music circles. On Saturday, Berlin-based Boys Noize, Dial Records artist Pantha Du Prince and African kuduro-tech outfit Buraka Som Sistema break up the otherwise indie and pop-heavy affair.
The Tempelhof program will run from noon until midnight over both days, with Arena opening at 11:00 PM and carrying things on until morning.
