Nicolas Jaar, Miike Snow, iamamiwhoami added to line-up

Only two weeks after having announced Of Monsters And Men and Clock Opera, Berlin Festival confirms more international performances. Nicolas Jaar, Miike Snow, iamamiwhoami and Crocodiles were added to the line-up as well as The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble and When Saints Go Machine.

The New York-based musician Nicolas Jaar will conquer the stage at Berlin Festival with one of his acclaimed live performances challenging the genre boundaries of electronic music. Soon after having released their debut album, Swedish-American electro pop trio Miike Snow were no longer a stranger to the indie crowds. Not too long ago, Miike Snow released their sophomore album Happy To You.

Once again, we have an up and coming artist to announce that will grace the stage at this year’s Berlin Festival: iamamiwhoami is the mysterious musical vehicel of one Jonna Lee. In 2010, The Swedish musician gained popularity by putting up beautifully shot out-of-this-world videos. After her one and only viral live performance, we’re excited to have iamamiwhoami with us in 2012, performing songs off her debut at her only show in Germany to date. The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble will be the first act to play at Berlin Festival this year. The Berlin-based trio will play a matinee show with a techno orchestra in tow before performing a live set at Club Xberg the same night.

Massive guitar sounds are Crocodiles‘ forte. The San Diego-based combo was formed by various punk band members which certainly explains the heavy noise pop influences. Great melodies crash with ecstatic feelings when the boys from When Saints Go Machine lure the crowd with sophisticated electro pop and „avant-garde dance“. The band from Copenhagen will perform at Club Xberg.

As part of the current wave retro trend, the Brooklyn-based duo Light Asylum is one of the hottest newcomers around. With singer Shannon Funchess’ unique voice and edgy synth sounds, the band will surely mesmerize the crowd on 8th September.

A limited amount of day tickets is available via as well as via CTS shops. To get in the mood for the festival event in September, check out the following PLAYLIST compiled by
