Berlin Fest is returning this weekend, May 29-31, at the Arena Park Treptow to celebrate their 10th anniversary and to get you hyped up we wanted to highlight some of the talent that you can expect to witness among the overwhelmingly vast and diverse lineup.
“Berlin Festival brings together all the city’s best features of unique music, culture and art. Genre barriers are torn down and redefined as techno flirts with hip hop, Arthouse with cabaret, high fashion with street wear, street food with haute cuisine and classical music with club culture.”
All confirmed acts:
Underworld, James Blake, Róisín Murphy, Richie Hawtin, Fritz Kalkbrenner, Seth Troxler, Carl Craig, Robert Hood, Rudimental, Dixon, Tale Of Us, Âme (live), Ten Walls (live), Chet Faker, GusGus, Marek Hemmann (live), Tiga, Twin Shadow, Atari Teenage Riot, Howling, Recondite (live), Kelela, Sylvan Esso, Pan-Pot, Ellen Allien, Westbam, Tiefschwarz (DJ-Set), Zebra Katz, Ratking, Shlohmo, Tourist, Yung Lean, Purple, La Fleur, Valentina Lisitsa, Avi Avital, Marco Resmann, DJ Ipek, Eva Be, Clé (DJ-Set).
Chet Faker is an Australian singer/songwriter/musician who specializes in electro-soul with a ravishing voice that is capable of seducing anybody. Taking the stage on Saturday May 30, Chet Faker is guaranteed to play a wonderfully intimate set and please the crowd on a deep and spiritual level.
One of his greatest hits, “Talk is Cheap” is a prime example of Chet’s ability to produce songs that are relaxed and touching while discussing widely relatable topics.
He played Coachella earlier this year and his performance was absolutely intoxicating. The drums are a little overpowering in this video but trust me, in person he’s still as incredible as he is sexy in his own rugged and charming way.
A frequent collaborator with the all-mighty Flume, Chet Faker is one of the few singers I’ve encountered who honestly sounds better live than on a mastered recording. Yes, I know that’s a big claim, so why don’t you see him and try to disagree?
Kisses and Kandi,
