Since 2010, Krake Festival has been all about the extraordinary. It blends the different facets of the
unusual while keeping the spotlight on what truly matters in music: authenticity, courage and fun,
expression and revolt - music with attitude!
In 2024, once again, we leave no stone unturned to bring exactly that to the stage, drawing the bow from the post-punk/hip-hop duo AUGN, frequently compared to Sleaford Mods, who take aim at Berlin's newfound hipness with gritty beats and pinpoint observations, to the vibrant, futuristic soundscape of WaqWaq Kingdom. From an expectedly outrageous rave set by Umwelt & Nite Fleit to a showcase by the legendary Dutch disco/acid/electro collective Intergalactic FM. Hard Ton, the man with the most beautiful voice and the best costumes in the business, fits in just as well as a line of DJs on the lobby floor at ://About Blank who illuminate the sounds of post-punk, new wave, and industrial from various perspectives.

Besides the burning question "Who's doing the hottest shit right now?", we are still pondering the question: Why is the music industry still lacking representation of artists with disabilities, even in the inclusive realm of electronic club culture? And who among these artists, defying conventional norms of ability, is crafting something truly special, despite - or precisely because of - their distinctive perspectives?

With this in mind, we unveil an exciting inclusive lineup of artists at the festival's opening at Berghain. Each artist navigates the dynamic intersection of music and drag, yet showcasing their very own unique expression.

At the Weekender at ://About Blank, we present the Gubnstreet Boys, a fresh inclusive hip-hop project that bridges mumble rap and illbient. Dive into the experimental sounds of Wellen.Brecher; the inclusive electro/techno band with German Schlager appeal is currently working on their upcoming debut album, picking up from last year’s hit “Tierisch Verboten”. At night, brace yourself for full-on ambient soundscapes in the garden, brought to you by the dynamic eight-piece ensemble Die Lustige Welt, which was born out of a weekly inclusive jam session at the Ick Mach Welle-studio. Joined by experimental maestro Roli Boli showcasing his mastery on custom instruments crafted by Playtronica and more. On Sunday, the main floor of the garden is taken over by an extinct blend of disco, acid, and electro, courtesy of IFM and Mechatronica, who are joining forces for their showcase at Krake Festival this year.
Meanwhile, Ick Mach Welle DJs JP Toulouse, Bläck Dävil, and DJ Locati will be serving up pure techno
madness, cranking it up and above 145 BPM.
