SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Krake Festival, various venues, until August 10
Now in its fifth year, Berlin’s Krake Festival is an electronic music festival that does things a bit differently. As the name suggests—der Krake means octopus in German—Krake is a multi-limbed creature, which reaches out beyond the conventions of normal, offering a diverse lineup of non-pretentious acts at a variety of venues in town.
The main event will take place at Urban Spree this year, though the adjacent Suicide Circus and nearby Berghain Kantine will also figure in to the festival. Expect performances from Ancient Methods, Axiom, Demdike Stare, Felix Kubin, Karsten Pflum, Khan, Sofus Forsberg, and plenty more.
In addition to innovative and experimental electronic music, there will also be readings, as well as a robot battle and visual art on the final evening. Natalye Childress
