Berlin Music Week is proud to announce an impressive range of artists, acts, promoters and organisers that will rub shoulders on the Spree from 5-9 September 2012, for a five-day, city-powered constellation of music showcases, concerts, parties, conferences, panels, seminars and networking opportunities.
Word on Sound
The Berlin Music Week convention, Word On Sound, is a new business and conference platform taking place from September 5–7, 2012, offering an in-depth program of live events, film, art, fashion, academics, community, political action and of course digital and analog commerce.
On September 05, we will experience the future of the media marketing of music as two masterminds of Network Awesome, Cory Vielma & Jason Forrest, will bring together to the panel of, ‘The New TV: The changing landscape of online videos’ the Gregory Brothers and Fred Seibert (Frederator Studios), among others, to discuss the current situation and future developments. Then on 7 September 2012, Bella Union’s Simon Raymonde will come together with Kieron Tyler of RPM International, Andreas ‘Lupo’ Lubich (Dubplates and Mastering/icrates.org) and Markus Lindner (CEO OYE Records), to discuss ‘Vinyl Preservation and Record Store Survival’.
Other topics on the program include Green Tech in Action, Denkfabrik, all2gethernow Werkstatt, Musikpädagogik Master Class, Kreativ Kapital and Most Wanted: Music. For more information visit: www.berlin-music-week.de/en/professionals/program
Club and Showcase Festival
The Berlin Music Week club program will be held from September 05 – 09, taking over many of the best-known and established spots the city has to offer: Lido, Magnet, Comet, Astra Kulturhaus, Festsaal Kreuzberg and Fritzclub @ Postbahnhof, in addition to newer clubs like Bi Nuu. Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg is the liveliest and most colourful quarter in the city – a true creative hotbed for music production and music related start-ups and tech, therefore the ideal location for Berlin Music Week.
Berlin based music label Sonar Kollektiv will present a showcase on Wednesday 05 September at the brand new club Chalet, with live performances from Georg Levin and Neve Naive as well as DJ sets from Dego (2000black / 4hero), Dirk Rumpff (Offtrack / CDR-Berlin) and Jazzanova. The Great Escape Festival meets Haldern Pop on Thursday 06 September when the two festival giants collide at Bi Nuu. Both festivals are pioneers in promoting new artists and music and it goes without saying that this event will be celebrated with a super line-up, including Ghostpoet, Jinja Safari, Half Moon Run and Helmut.
Other highlights of the program include the Scandinavian showcase Nordic by Nature, which will present internationally known artists including Turboweekend and LCMDF, as well as some new and upcoming talent such as Highasakite, Spleen United, I Got You On Tape and Sandra Kolstad. Rock sounds from two continents unite on Friday September 07 at the Astra Kulturhaus, as IYON, a German-Turkish newcomer from Berlin has invited Feridun Düzagac, the sensual rock voice of Istanbul to perform. And the closing highlight presents the New Music Award on Sunday 09 September – the big winners of the past years were: Bonaparte, Kraftklub and Captain Capa!
The Berlin Music Week club ticket gives access to the hottest newcomer, the hippest acts and heroes of the scene in about 40 clubs in the city from 5th to 9th September 2012.
Festival of Festivals
Berlin Music Week will wrap the week up with a bang on September 7th and 8th, courtesy of the Berlin Festival at Tempelhof and its late night program, Club X-berg. Tasty treats like Bonaparte, Franz Ferdinand, Friendly Fires, Tocotronic, Kraftklub, Sigug Rós, Little Dragon, Paul Kalkbrenner and other high-caliber acts are already confirmed. Information on tickets and other highlights can be found at www.berlinfestival.de.
