BERLIN FESTIVAL 2011
ALOE BLACC, THE RAPTURE AND MORE ACTS CONFIRMED + FURTHER TICKET CATEGORIES
September 9th – 10th 2011
Three weeks ago, we outlined our 2011 Berlin Festival concept for the first time. Now we can finally give you some more details: besides fantastic additions to our bill, we can announce further ticket categories for Berlin Festival, Club Xberg and Berlin Music Week Clubnacht. Festival visitors will also get the chance to win two VIP tickets for Reading Festival.
Where to start? Well, we’re really happy to confirm Aloe Blacc, who skilfully combines Motown feeling galore with socio-critical subtext. The Rapture is also billed this year. The New York combo releases its new album, In the Grace of Your Love, in September, which, according to frontman Luke Jenner, is musically taking up where the extraordinary album Echoes left off.
We’re also very excited to have Turbo Recordings’ Gesaffelstein with us, who will perform live at Club Xberg. Synth-laden guitar sounds are in the mix as well. While the Brazilian CSS boast some proper punk attitude, The Naked And Famous from New Zealand are more about epic and experimental soundscapes. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, who are right on time for Berlin Festival with their new album Hysterical, will certainly cause a stir among indie lovers. Also new to the bill: Tune-Yards, who musically sways between folk influences, pop nuances, homemade beats and R’n’B rhythms, newcomer Austra, who arrives from the darker recesses of the electro cosmos to give an atmospheric live performance, as well as Alex Winston and Housse de Racket.
More acts and DJs will be announced shortly. All acts, divided by day and venue, are listed below.
Today, we can also shed some light on our various ticket categories. We already announced the Berlin Music Week Ticket for EUR 89 (incl. Berlin Festival, Club Xberg, Berlin Music Week Clubnacht, and public transport on the 9th and 10th of September). Now festivalgoers have the choice between three more categories:
With the Berlin Festival 2-day ticket for EUR 74, visitors not only get entry to Tempelhof Airport on 9th AND 10th September until midnight. Entrance to over 30 clubs of Berlin Music Week Clubnacht is also included in the price as well as a 2-day BVG ticket (public transport).
The Berlin Festival day ticket for EUR 44 (public transport included) gives everyone access to Tempelhof Airport on the 9th OR the 10th of September until midnight. In order to make it easier to decide, all acts are divided by day and venue below.
For all the nocturnal party people, we also have the limited Club Xberg day ticket for EUR 24 on offer. With this particular ticket, clubbers have access to Arena Berlin’s various venues such as Arena Club, Glashaus, Badeshiff, Hoppetosse and others on the 9th OR the 10th of September.
In addition, all ticket buyers, who purchase a ticket via www.berlinfestival.de/tickets before 31st July, have the chance to win 2 exclusive VIP tickets to the legendary Reading Festival (26th-28th August w/ Pulp, The Strokes, Interpol, Deftones, The National). Reading Festival will even arrange to pay for the journey!
