At the end of July and the beginning of August 2019, the festival will be held for the seventh time, thundering onto the stage with four days filled to the brim with music, improvisation, performance, interference, feedback and countless surprises. At Radialsystem and the Säälchen at Holzmarkt, the festival will be hosting a number of Germany-wide premiers and collaborations unlike anything the world has ever seen or heard that blur the lines between jazz and dada, hip-hop and expressionism, real-time music and flux.
Matana Roberts will spend an evening playing alongside with Nils Petter Molvær, Natalie Sandtorv and Jan Jelinek’s Groupshow, Dälek’s ruthless raps will meet Mats Gustafsson’s tenor saxophone and the Krautrock of Faust, Moor Mother is bringing her collective Irreversible Entanglements, and Colin Stetson is his rock-transcendence experience named Ex Eye. And those are just a few highlights of this year’s line-up that promises to change the way you listen to music and permanently expand your horizons over the course of four summer nights on the Spree.
